If only someone had made “American Idol” sign a do not resuscitate order!

Ratings are down 25 percent, and instead of simply dumping Mariah Carey — which is a rumor going around — now it seems that some at Fox want to ax the entire judging crew and start over with four new celebs.

“Yes, we want to do a whole new panel,” someone at the network told blogger Perez Hilton.

Here’s an idea: Let the show die. It’s better to burn out than to fade away, no? Randy Jackson already figured it out, and on Thursday announced that this season will be his last, the Associated Press said.
