"American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi told EOnline’s Marc Malkin that ABC’s decision to drop
Adam Lambert from two appearances — "Good Morning America" and New Year’s Eve — was all about money.
"We’re living in a pretty bad economic time, so they have to do what they have to do to keep their advertisers. Networks are doing what they think their viewers want and don’t want, so it’s just budgetary," said DioGuardi.
