Fox Is Moving Idol To Midseason

| Filed under: TV NewsPaula AbdulAmerican Idol


Is this wise?!

Although it once dominated Tuesday nights, Fox is moving American Idol to Wednesdays and Thursdays for midseason.

Thursdays are the most lucrative for advertising revenue, so the network is moving Fringe to Fridays in order to make room for Idol. Mostly, Idol is being used as a lead in on to Fox's new shows.

On Wednesday, Idol will begin at 8pm as the new show Human Target follows. And in April, Idol will be a lead in to Christian Slater's midseason comedy Breaking In.

But at it's Wednesday time slot, Idol will be in direct competition with Paula Abdul's CBS show, Live to Dance.

    FOX SUX! Fringe is gonna die on Fridays :(

    Paula will nail it. She will get her payback for those Idol producers that participate in gender pay discrimination. Idol is the next Titanic without Paula and Simon.

    thanks a lot FOX for moving fringe to fridays

    Your headline does not make sense, it is already a mid season show. Fringe is a great show, I hope it does not get lost in the shuffle.

    I think you meant midWEEK, not midSEASON.

  13. 13

    I won't be watching even one second of AI so I don't care where they put it on the schedule. Oh and by the way Perez, Human Target is NOT a new show. It was on last year.

    Does it really matter? Who actually watches LIVE tv anymore? If you do… grow up and get TiVo. And DUH, yes they are trying to sink the Fringe. But really what they should be pushing to Fridays is Glee. See if the show holds up on that shitty night.

    Umm sorry but you need help writing. It's MIDWEEK not midseason.
