American Idol will be back…

..for season 11.

They’re going to premiere on Sunday, January 22 after the NFC Championship Game on FOX (or whatever replaces it if the NFL lockout wipes out the season)… then return to Wednesdays 8-9:30pm/Thursdays 8-9pm on January 25.

FOX will be using the same time slot starting in September for the American version of The X Factor.

And yes, it’ll be the same time slot used for So You Can Think You Can Dance in the summer… so FOX now has a 12-month competition cycle in the Wednesday/Thursday time slot, which is good news for FOX as it and Glee are the only things keeping the network going… 🙂
