Last night, viewers finally got to see the much-publicized incident in which rookie American Idol judge Nicki Minaj freaked out during an audition and stormed off the set.

If the ratings are any indication, the incident — like the revamped judging panel — is being met by viewers with a collective “meh.”

Although Idol dominated the night as Wednesday’s most-watched show, viewership dropped by more than 2 million from the season premiere. This does not bode well for the rest of the season or the heavily hyped judging panel, with none of the new judges — especially bland Mariah Carey — justifying their multimillion-dollar paycheques.
