No amount of shiny hype, format tweaks or new judges can change the fact that American Idol is entering its 12th season when it premieres on Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox.
As the elder statesman of reality singing competitions, Idol no longer has the sheen of innovation it once had. In fact, with a market so glutted with similar shows, the programs rarely surprise viewers who have become inured to all the variations.
