Even Paula for that matter. What made the show fun was that there was the tough guy, the nice and wacky woman, and the 'in between' guy.
The way I see it, every TV show has something or someone that you associate it with. In other words, when you think of a certain show, you think of that particular person or thing.
When you think American Idol, the first thing that most likely comes to your head is Simon, Paula, and Randy. It's hard to associate the show to those three the past two-three years because of the constant judge changes.
