Can Steven Tyler save American Idol?

With viewership sagging, "American Idol" has reportedly hired Aerosmith front-man Steven Tyler as its newest judge. If the rumors are true, Tyler would be the first person chosen to replace a stream of outgoing judges, including Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres, and possibly Kara DioGuardi. While "Idol"'s network, Fox, has yet to confirm the deal, Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton tells the New Jersey Star-Ledger that, "the ink is dry" on his bandmate's contract. Can Tyler's rock-star power help "Idol" climb out of its recent ratings funk?

  • I agree that noone will ever replace simon Cowell, but I've had a strange crush on Steven Tyler for I don't know long...He's one of those guys that's not really good looking, but you just can't help but like him. I'm looking forward to seeing what he brings to AI!!

  • I will miss the show without Simon, he is really the reason why I watched it. I don't know if I will keep watching or not but Steven Tyler is an interesting choice and might be fun
