Revealing its mid-season plan, Fox squelched talk that American Idol would be moved to a Wednesday-Thursday schedule. Instead, the series' fifth season will stick to its Tuesday-Wednesday combo, premiering Jan. 17 at 8 pm/ET. Also announced: 24, airing Mondays at 9, starts its uninterrupted five-month run of new episodes on Jan. 15 with a two-night, four-hour event; Skating with Celebrities bows Jan. 18, before moving to Mondays on Jan. 23; Bones relocates to Wednesday at 9 (ouch) starting Jan. 25; Stacked and That '70s Show move to Thursday starting March 2; and Prison Break picks up where this week's cliff-hanger left off beginning March 20. As for exits, Killer Instinct gets snuffed this Friday and the Reunion comes to an end on Feb. 2, as producers work to tie up the murder mystery a few "years" ahead of schedule.
