Fox sets 'American Idol,' 'Empire' premiere dates

19 November 2014 2:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After a somewhat rough fall, Fox is slowly making announcements for the spring of 2015, revealing a two-night premiere for "American Idol" and a launch for the already-heavily-promoted musical drama "Empire." Season 14 of "American Idol," also know as "AI, Ad" ("American Idol, After Dawg"), will begin with a two-night three-hour premiere on Wednesday, January 7 at 8 p.m. and Thursday, January 8 from 8 to 10 p.m. There are still plenty of questions remaining. "Idol" typically has one airing schedule for the auditions through Hollywood Week, followed by a different schedule for live performance shows and results. So will "Idol" be airing twice a week in that initial phase, followed by the previously announced once-per-week plan? Or has everything changed? It's a mystery. For now, we know that "Empire," starring Oscar nominees Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, will premiere on Wednesday, January 7 at 9 p.m. after "Idol." The premiere will air with limited commercial interruption. »

Fox’s ‘American Idol,’ New Drama ‘Empire’ To Bow Together in January

19 November 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox is letting the music play this January, with the return of “American Idol” and the debut of drama “Empire” slated for Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Idol” is kicking off its 14th season a week earlier than usual, and “Empire,” a family drama set in the music industry starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, will follow with a premiere that Fox says will include limited commercial interruption.

“Empire” will air regularly on Wednesday following “American Idol.” And by bowing on Jan. 7, “Empire” won’t have to face the timeslot’s biggest drama, as CBS’ “Criminal Minds” will be pre-empted for the People’s Choice Awards.

Fox is expected to reveal additional schedule details soon. It’s unclear what Wednesday’s schedule announcement for “Empire” means for current Wednesday 9 p.m. occupant “Red Band Society,” a first-year drama that has struggled in the ratings but remains a favorite of the network. Fox »

Will the back and forth between these two ever end?! Answer: apparently not.  Justin Bieber has reportedly unfollowed Selena Gomez on Instagram, less than one week after the 22-year-old pop star opened up about her relationship with her on-again-off-again beau in a revealing interview with Ryan Seacrest.  Last week, Gomez dropped the emotional music video for her latest single "The Heart Wants What It Wants," in which she sings about a her rollercoaster relationship with Bieber while giving fans an inside look at her vulnerable side.

12 November 2014 6:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The Dawg is done.

Randy Jackson announced yesterday that he is leaving "American Idol" after 13 seasons as a judge and mentor. The former musician and producer has been with the Fox reality competition from the start.

"After 13 seasons, I felt now was the perfect time to leave 'American Idol,,'" he said in a statement to Deadline.

"Idol" invited Jackson back as a mentor, to replace Jimmy Iovine, and he accepted.

Bill Cosby’s website yanks meme generator after it backfired with rape allegations

Bill Cosby’s website yanks meme generator after it backfired with rape allegations Cosby’s Twitter account also erased all mentions of the ill-advised meme generator, which backfired immediately. Is TV exploiting Veterans Day? From A&E’s “Dogs of War” to HBO’s “The Concert For Valor,” there’s an onslaught of Veterans Day programming that are so empty that they threaten to turn "the day chosen to recognize their sacrifices like another Hallmark holiday,” says Bryan Lowry. Is “A to Z” canceled?
