American Idol is getting trimmed to one night a week.
"There won't be a 'wait 'til tomorrow night,'" Seacrest said at the Z100 Jingle Ball in New York, THR reports. "There won't be a 'Coming up, coming up, coming up.' We are going to put it all into one format in one night. So that will be exciting."
Last season, Idol slashed its results show down to 30 minutes to air on Thursday nights, after the performances were shown on Wednesdays. The new format mimics ABC's Dancing with the Stars, which switched to a single-show format earlier this year.
American Idol kicks off Season 14 on Wednesday, Jan. 7 at 8/7c on Fox. Do you think it's a good idea to cut out the results show?
