YEP, I'M GONE: Ellen DeGeneres has quit American Idol; new judges (2? 3? 4?) to be announced on Monday. This was a failed experiment, and I'm glad it's over. Sepinwall agrees.
ETA from Matt: Nikki Finke reports that Jennifer Lopez will replace Ellen (and Kara?) and that while they wanted Elton John to replace Simon Cowell, they couldn't work it out, and an offer may be out to Steven Tyler to fill that seat.
