I agree with MonkeyJoe. I haven't seen much bad press about TSMM since it's opened. Everyone who has ridden it seems to like/love it. A solid D attraction. Now if they just create more attractions with AAs...
Also, there are many reports that seem to state the opposite is true and DHS is on the upswing.
Toy Story Mania is the best new attraction to open in quite a while. American Idol will certainly please a certain audience. If I, or most of us, had my/our way, American Idol should have no place at a Disney park, but we don't. It will eat some crowds and it's much better than having that theater empty.
Like others above I have no idea where the notion of a downward spiral comes from. TSMM is great attraction by all accounts, while a Star Tours redo is imminent, in addition to (very likely) a wild mouse coaster (one version of which has been a big hit at WDS Paris). I could care less about American Idol but it isn't as though it were replacing something great. Now if only they could pulverize that Hat...
I think Carsland is a GIANT mistake over at Disneyland but here at WDW I don't think Hollywood Studios is suffering because the American Dull Idol experience can always easily be replaced with whatever new pop culture show has taken over the globe.

Wrong park, no? All DHS is likely to get is a wild-mouse coaster themed to Cars, as part of Pixar Place...and that's OK by me. As for CarsLand at DCA...it's the main reason why I hope to be at that particular park around 2013.
actually, I think quite the opposite. To me, DHS has been a bit of a problem for some time. It is clearly my 4th favorite park in need of a lot of help. There are empty theaters and production areas. I would imagine the whole Backlot Tour area will be plowed over to make way for something else.
