Who the new judges will be on the next season of "American Idol"isn't the only question facing Fox. The fate of one of the key figures behind the scenes -- executive producer Nigel Lythgoe -- is also up in the air.
Lythgoe is keeping mum.
"I can’t make any comments about my future with 'Idol' at the moment," Lythgoe said during the Television Critics Assn. press tour Monday, where he was doing press for his other Fox show, "So You Think You Can Dance." "We're in negotiations," he added.
