After waiting with bated breath, we now have the highly anticipated season premiere info! We’ll get things rolling with a two-night, four-hour event, Tuesday and Wednesday, January 15th and 16th, at 8/7c, only on FOX! Make sure to watch both nights for a glimpse of the season seven hopefuls (and hopeless!), Ryan Seacrest, and the AI judges you’ve surely missed!
With no end in sight to the WGA strike, FOX will be relying on American Idol even more than usual. Typically, the show single-handedly catapults the network from the bottom to the top of the ratings heap. This year, it could help FOX fill gaping holes left by their scripted shows forced on hiatus by the strike.
Can we look forward to a nightly marathon of Idol as the strike drags on through the season?
ETA: A major strike rally is planned in front of FOX headquarters in Los Angeles this afternoon…
