Returning Show: 'American Idol'
Starring: Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson, Ryan Seacrest
Premieres: January 16th (Fox)
Season 12 of American Idol tries yet again to shake things up by replacing two-term judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler with a whole new cast of characters (Carey, Urban, Minaj). Since losing original judge Simon Cowell two years ago, the seminal singing competition has been in constant reboot mode. This season, expect bickering between divas Carey and Minaj, who supposedly got into some on-screen spats during the pre-taped auditions. Otherwise, it's probably business as usual.
