Get out those ear plugs: Fox's second season of American Idol kicks off Jan. 21 and 22 with special 90-minute editions. To make room for Idol, Fox is relocating That '70s Show to Wednesdays at 8 pm/ET and moving Bernie Mac and Cedric the Entertainer Presents an hour later to 9-10 pm/ET. Fastlane, meanwhile, will shift to Fridays at 8 pm/ET, giving Firefly some time off. In other midseason scheduling news, CBS will launch its Star Search update on Jan. 9 at 8 pm/ET, pushing the debut of the latest Survivor back to February. NBC will ring in 2003 with a slew of new series: Mister Sterling a political drama starring Josh Brolin as a freshman senator debuts Jan. 10 in Providence's old timeslot. Felicity's Scott Foley debuts in the legal comedy A.U.S.A. in February. And come March, Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns with new episodes of Watching Ellie.
