Tuesday Weld-esired No Longer (groan): ‘American Idol’ Moves to Wednesday and Thursday; Plus Fox’s Full Mid-Season Primetime Line-Up

With "Glee" performing very nicely, thank you–up 38% in ratings in the 18-49 demo so far this year–Fox will not move it from its Tuesday night slot come January.

Instead, "American Idol" will move to Wednesday and Thursday nights, Fox has announced. "Human Target" will follow ‘Idol" on Wednesdays.

WIth the ‘Idol" move, "Fringe" gets shifted from Thursdays to Fridays at 9 p.m. "Bones" will follow ‘Idol" on Thursdays.

  1. Well, we might as well kiss Fringe good bye !!!Friday nite, the death knell !!

  2. Yep, and in the wake of partially losing “The Event,” which will probably be its death knell, there will be nothing left. Oh and “Rubicon.” Really nothing left.

  3. Yes, those right wing whack jobs at Fox are messing up moving Fringe to Friday. But, on the other hand, with Medium and Smallville gone, at least there will be something really good to watch Friday evening.

  4. As much as I hate to say it, “Fringe” already jumped the shark. They should have teased out the main story arc a bit more before just laying it out there in all its cheesy, ridiculous glory.
    Seems they are taking more than a premise from “The X-Files”. Just as with that show, when watching becomes an effort of will, the writing’s on the wall.

  5. Gracias por compartir esta informacion. Excelente publicacion
