Remember how we keep hearing that Jennifer Lopez is done with Idol? It might appear that she was fired from it, in essence. She wanted a raise to $17 million a year but Fox said no. The Wrap says:
J. Lo’s fee went from $12 million in her first season to $15 million in her second. When she asked for another $2 million, the network surprised her by not making a counteroffer. “Idol” lost its top spot in the ratings to NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” last season after eight years of dominance. In their two seasons, Tyler and Lopez helped prop up the show. But they could not return it to its former dominance.
