Fox television this week faced an uncomfortable future when the two biggest stars on its No. 1-rated show American Idol openly discussed leaving, which experts said could send viewership plummeting in future seasons.

Paula Abdul, whose often quirky behavior has been a hot topic for years, told ABC News program "Nightline" that her contract ends after this season. And acid-tongued Simon Cowell, whom critics call the show's real star, gave several interviews in which he contemplated an exit when his deal ends next year.
