randy jackson idol 320 'American Idol': Randy Jackson is the most well liked judge?There’s a new survey out from Rasmussen Reports that says “American Idol” viewers look most favorably upon judge Randy Jackson.

That comes as a huge surprise to us. It’s not that Randy does anything offensive but he’s just kinda … there … most of the time.

We thought for sure Simon would reign supreme, but his prickliness must rub too many people the wrong way. The entire poll results, from a survey of 1,569 viewers, is as follows:

Ellen DeGeneres is off to a better start than we would’ve guessed. We think she’s still finding her “Idol” sea legs, but 65% favorable isn’t too shabby. We are not at all surprised Kara is last. She has good insight both music and the industry but hasn’t yet learned how to deliver her critiques in a good way.

What do you guys think? Is Randy your favorite dawg at the judges’ table?
