"American Idol"'s Diminishing Returns Continue with Season 14's Nick Fradiani

It looks like American Idol's decision to wrap things up after 15 seasons may have been the right one.  In a perfect illustration of the law of diminishing returns, season 14 champ Nick Fradiani has the dubious honor of having his debut album, Hurricane, score the lowest debut sales week and chart position of any Idol winner.  Billboard reports that Hurricane arrived at #121 on the Billboard chart, with first-week sales of just 5,000 units. Nick was unable to break an Idol-winner sales free-fall that started with season eight winner Kris Allen, briefly paused for season 10 and season 11…
