Here’s An update to yesterday’s news that the 8th audition episode would be eliminated, pushing up the beginning of the Hollywood Round by a day. Check out the FOX schedule for the rest of February. There will be two days of the “final judgement” round instead of one, as was previously scheduled. That’s great–we’ll get to see lots of the “last chance” performances before the Green Mile begins at the end of Part 1.
Also, the 400th episode celebration has been moved from February 28th to March 7th, which leads me to ask–which episode exactly is the 4ooth?
