FOX has confirmed that ex-producer NIGEL LYTHGOE has returned to "American Idol" as Executive Producer.
THE WASHINGTON POST reports, "LYTHGOE was brought back to overhaul the show, which is still the country's most-watched series but has taken a ratings tumble over the past two seasons. On WEDNESDAY morning, he was quoted telling VARIETY he wants to bring PAULA ABDUL back as an IDOL judge. But PAULA, of course, is under contract with CBS to star in her own dance competition series."
