The oustings continue at American Idol. Executive Producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick won’t be back at the FOX  series next season. “The passion and dedication that Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick brought to American Idol guided the show to become a true cultural phenomenon,” said FOX, Fremantle Media and 19 Entertainment in a statement. “While we are saddened they will no longer be executive producers on the show, we are grateful for their tremendous contributions and look forward to continuing to work with them on additional projects.” Lythgoe took to Twitter to note that he is still in business with the network on So You Think You Can Dance, where he serves as both executive producer and a judge. “Yes, don’t worry. I’m on #SYTYCD. Fox still loves me,” he posted via the handle @dizzyfeet. “It’s not a personal thing. They just feel IDOL needs new leadership after 12 seasons.”
