So the rumors tell us that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are leaving Idol due to their large salaries. If Idol wasn’t hurting before, they surely are now. Their ratings are down, they don’t want to pay too much for their judges, so why does hiring Sheen make sense? It doesn’t!! Charlie joked about it recently on Leno saying he’d 100% be on board to judge if:
CONDITION #1. Charlie says FX — the network that airs his show “Anger Management” — must sign off on an “Idol” deal … but Jennifer Lopez proved, being on A.I. can be good for business.
CONDITION #2. Charlie says the money has to be right: “If the numbers move the needle AND ‘Idol’ matches 20% of my weekly salary for Autism Speaks, JDRF, and the Boys and Girls Club … then the hell with it. As we say, pour the smoke.”
