'American Idol': Still on Tuesdays and Wednesdays

Let the bitterness and recrimination begin! Time to revise your TiVo lineup: Fox has announced that American Idol will air on Tuesday and Wednesday nights beginning Jan. 17. But fear not: NBC is moving My Name Is Earl to Thursday since, um, nothing else seems to be working there.

How will this change your viewing habits — what will you be watching on Tuesdays and Wednesdays? Are you more likely to tune into Bones now that it’ll follow the Wednesday Idol? (It worked for House!) Holla back!

    It may boost the ratings for Bones, but not like it did for House. House was always a great show, Idol just gave it viewers. Bones will get viewers, but it is not a great show, therefore probably will not retain them.

    I tape ‘Bones’ while watching ‘Gilmore Girls’ and now will do the same with ‘Lost.’ But unless ABC keeps both ‘Alias’ and ‘Invasion’ off of Thursdays, moving ‘my name is earl’ and/or ‘scrubs’ to Thursdays may require a sacrifice.

    FOx should have switched House and Bones… so that HOuse gets Wednesday at 9 and Bones gets less competition.
    With American Idol’s help, HOUSE could beat LOST but I dont think newcomer Bones will have a chance
    They should have put House on wednesday and used Tuesday at 9 as a launching padfor new shows, not the other way around!
    But I am happy that fox is pairing 24 with Prison Brek in march… they are the perfect team

    Alias is moving to Wednesdays at 10.
    Fox should be hung out to dry for cancelling Arrested Development and Kitchen Confidential and replacing it with “Skating with Celebrities”. I guess there’s a quota for intelligent shows on Fox, and with 24 coming back in January, something had to go.

    As for Bones, I had fun watching it, but if I have to choose between that and Lost, I’m switching to ABC.

    Arressted was a good show but it NEVER caught on. I dont blame FOX for AD, the only reason it was still on the air was because of critical acclaim… I personally loved that show, but without an audience, FOX’s hands were tied.

    I currently tape Bones while watching Gilmore Girls, and with it moving to Wednesdays, I’ll continue to tape it while watching Veronica Mars. I gave up watching Lost, so I dont mind.

  • Leebus

    I will be watching HBO and Showtime.

    I feel like I should clarify, after seeing BH’s comment, that Veronica Mars airs late at night here on our CBS affiliate as there is no local UPN one. So I’d definitely choose Veronica Mars over ‘Bones’ and maybe even ‘Lost’ these days (I’m feeling it less for some reason), but luckily I don’t have to worry about all three at once. This also helps on Thursdays because I can tape ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ while I’m sleeping.
    To Howard: ‘Alias’ is moving to Wed. at 10 for December, but ‘Invasion’ has also been given more episodes, and ABC has yet to announce what will happen come January. They claim they’ll make ‘Alias’ an event for its finale so maybe they’ll keep it on Wed., but I’m also a fan of ‘Invasion.’

    “Idol” won’t be enough to get me to stick around for “Bones.” I had high hopes for the show, given that I love Kathy Reichs’ books. But the show just plain sucks. I can live with the fact that the Temperance Brennan in the TV show bears absolutely no resemblance to the Tempe Brennan in the books. But I can’t get over the ridiculous dialogue, even more ridiculous story lines (I’m no forensic anthropologist, but come on. Can you really completely reconstruct a person’s face in a couple of hours? I think not.), and the wooden acting of Emily Deschanel.
    Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. It’s been bothering me for months.
