    FOX Puts AMERICAN IDOL Rumors to Rest

    by SnowflakeGirl

    FansofRealityTV.com Calm down, everybody, it's official. AMERICAN IDOL is not going anywhere. Peter Liguori, President of Entertainment for FOX, announced in a press release this week that the Number 1 show in television will return for spring of 2006 in its same Tuesday/Wednesday time periods, despite much talk that it might move the results show to Thursdays in order to usurp the old "Must See TV" crown and grab more ad revenue.

    "With all of the speculation and rumor, it's great to finally announce the premiere of the second half of our season," Liguori said. "It takes discipline to hold back 24 and AMERICAN IDOL, but doing so allows us to strengthen our schedule across the week and to give our viewers nonstop excitement from January through May." He added: "I'm also pleased to announce that we're bringing back PRISON BREAK earlier than planned because fans are demanding it and because it's a fantastic companion for 24. All of this necessitates some other moves, but we're keeping HOUSE behind the IDOL performance show, where it performed so successfully last year."

    Season 5 of AMERICAN IDOL' will take off next spring with a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, Jan. 17 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and a one-hour episode on Wednesday, Jan. 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) leading the premiere of new reality fiasco SKATING WITH CELEBRITIES (9:00-10:00 PM).

    I think ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT's being cancelled due to low rating. And I'm not so sure about KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL but it's probably will be back next season.
    Stop the world! I want to get off!
