American Idol Moving to Wednesdays and Thursdays; Fringe Headed to Fridays

American Idol, Fringe

American Idol will move to Wednesdays and Thursdays next year as part of a major schedule revamp, Fox announced Friday.

Idol, previously on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, will kick off its tenth season with two-hour season premieres on Wednesday, Jan. 19 and Thursday, Jan. 20. The move allows Fox to leave ratings powerhouse Glee in its same Tuesdays-at-8/7c timeslot through the new year.

The new schedule also appears to renege Fox's announcement last May that the Idol results show would be cut from an hour to 30 minutes.

CSI: NY: Is John Larroquette Really a Bad Guy?

John Larroquette and Gary Sinise, CSI: NY

Appearances are often deceiving on television.

Emmy winner John Larroquette, who wraps his three-episode CSI:NY arc Friday, says the same is definitely true for his character. Larroquette plays Manhattan Chief of Detectives Ted Carver, who first butted heads with Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) over how to handle the media during a sniper case.

Last week, Mac's team found the body of Carver's sister buried in Central Park, and Mac began to suspect that Carver is somehow connected to the 15-year-old case. Larroquette admits that his character is not blameless, but advises that viewers wait to make up their minds.

"As much as it points toward him being [the villain], that opinion may be altered by the end of the episode," Larroquette says... read more

Dancing's Maks "Disappointed in a Lot of Things"; Thanks Fans for "Humongous Support"

Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Hi everyone,

Hope you had a great week. Thanks for voting for us.

Well, we came up short. It is what it is. I'm enjoying the somewhat controversial spotlight. You have to embrace everything. People have told me that we looked mad on Tuesday's show before the results were announced. I really was not concerned at all. Brandy's always nervous on every results show. I try to tell her that it's not worth it to be nervous. We did our job on Monday. I feel like everything is according to plan. If anything, I learned from spending time with Brandy and Kurt Warner. They're both very spiritual people in their own way. I've never have been, but I've learned a lot from both of them. I think it was pre-ordained.

Did anyone expect it? I think to have lost the way we have, I would take that any day than to have won under different circumstances. I'm very proud of ...
