You make a good point about the tastes of teenage girls.Originally Posted by Debb70;3915938;
However one of the very few things we know for sure about Idol is who watches the program. The ratings are broken down into age groups for advertisers. Idol has very low under 18 numbers. Every year the show has been on the air, the audience has skewed older and older. In short, teenagers don't watch Idol, their parents do.
However some do watch and some do vote. But they are far, far outnumbered by their parents.
My guess is that we are not looking at the decisions of a lot of teen girls here. I don't think that we can avoid the actual primary demographic of the show, which is adult women.
