Randy Jackson signs for three more years

Randy Jackson has signed with FOX for three more years of American Idol, thus assuring that the dysfunctional family will remain intact, as long as one of them doesn’t enter rehab.

Variety calls Randy’s deal a “[m]ultimillion-dollar pact,” but doesn’t specify beyond that. Paula Abdul signed a contract for three more years this March.

But Simon Cowell is signed with the show for five more years, meaning the show could conceivably go on without Paula and Randy.
