    We really doubt that Paula Abdul returning as a judge on American Idol will do much to boost the show's sagging ratings, but we don't produce the show. Apparently, rumors are swirling, thanks to a story in The New York Post, that exiled judge Paula Abdul, who left the show last year over contract negotiations and squabbles, may be ripe for return next season. Producers of the Fox show are considering bringing Abdul back, since the show has been whooped by Dancing With the Stars in the ratings games multiple times this season.

    While neither show boasts much in the way of brain stimulation and both are like brain bacon, the hot mess drama that is Dancing With the Stars is appealing to reality show fiends and the snippy banter between Simon Cowell and Abdul was one of the key chemistry elements of Idol which was lost when Abdul exited.

    Do you think Idol will go even further downhill once Cowell bolts? Do you think bringing back Paula Abdul to her judging post is a wise decision or is the show jumping the shark?
