American Idol, Glee Set Season Finale Dates (Schedule)

FOX just sent out a press release that answers the questions I posed in this post announcing the SYTYCD premiere. Yes, So You Think You Can Dance will air on TUESDAYS beginning May 14.

The American Idol finale will air in two parts, on Wednesday May 15 and Thursday May 16.  A Top 10 would have the series ending the week before, so Nigel has SOMETHING up his sleeve–either a wildcard or an Idol special like Idol Gives Back.

And as I previously mentioned, Glee will wrap up Season 4 on Thursday May 9.
