Fox execs on ‘American Idol, ‘ ‘Fringe’ moves: ‘It’s the right moment’

“That timeslot looks ripe, it’s the right moment, ” explains Darnell, who also goes onto explain why Fox abandoned the idea of airing a 30-minute results show. “If you are going to attack Thursdays, you need to attack it with your biggest piece because that’s the only way anyone has ever won on that night. And if you are going to make this move, you have to have an hour show. You can’t go in with a half hour. The new format and the things happening with the show are going to make that hour make much more sense.”

And what about those new changes? Even though exec producer Nigel Lythgoe has been out there discussing a change to the top 24 and having contestants do music videos, Darnell insists that nothing has been set in stone for the new season. ”First of all, while are going to be making changes to the middle round, we wouldn’t go with no top 24. That has not been decided. We’ve talked about a lot of things and yes those middle rounds are going to be different, but it’s not like there is not going to be a top number of contestants for the audience to vote down to a top 12.”

DWTS Judge Carrie Ann Inaba on Bristol Palin’s Chances

To get some inside perspective about Bristol Palin’s chances at winning the DWTS mirror ball this evening, we spoke to judge Carrie Ann Inaba. “Expectations play a large role in what you perceive to be happening on screen, ” she said. “Last year, one of the best dancers I’ve ever seen, Nicole Scherzinger, won the trophy and she was incredible.
