All of the options to some extent. But the ones that stand out are:

1) Too many music-based reality shows on TV (II1, FG, SRGMP and others) SRGMP affected II2's popularity too. Last season, II1 was a novel concept so it did well w/regards to TRPs and number of votes.

2) Not enough focus on talent and music. American Idol's prime focus is always music, which is why its doing well in its fifth season. Having a personality like Simon helps as well. Wink Anyway, for music lovers, II2 offered nothing new, the gala themes were very ordinary and run-of-the-mill. They didn't do justice to some of the talent on the show. For people who enjoyed the drama and politics of FG, there wasn't as much in II2 I guess, at least not btw contestants. The judges tried to create controverisies but it all came across as very contrived, fake and boring.

Better singers overall, a more genuine dedication to music (from the producers, judges, hosts) would have made a difference.

Well said Sonya...I agree 100%...only another thing I want to add...have already mentioned this before I think...but all those hair color, pizza, clothes, coke ads make the show look very frivolous...and so do the music duh celebreties....it has become more of a Tamasha than a serious talent hunt show!!

Another thing i wanna mention is that the celebrity judges in II2 were not good...they just made an appearance on the show for the sake of promoting their own films/shows. But the celebrity judges in II1 (like Sanjay Leela Bansali, Kajol, Juhi Chawla) were really good...they actually paid attention to the performance of the contestants and made very intelligent comments.

Agree 100% with point 1 made by Sonayee

The novelty of voting through SMS has also worn off.

They need to take a break from this kind of reality show.
