Well, that answers that question. With a "no."
Those programmers must have some sense of humor.
Abdul's reality show looks like it will face off against the most popular show in the country when it debuts early next year. Here's where things stand:
Live to Dance kicks off with a two-hour special Jan. 4 before moving to its regular hourlong slot Wednesdays, starting Jan. 5.
And while Fox has technically not yet announced the premiere dates for its midseason replacements, you can set your calendars to the fact that the now Simon-less Idol typically debuts in the second week of January and commandeers Tuesday and Wednesday nights, meaning after a one-week grace period, the old friends and new foes will most likely be facing off.
Abdul would have a slight upper hand in terms of drawing people in, as her show will air at 8:30 p.m., to Idol's 9:00 p.m.
Yeah, this is going to get interesting. May the best reality show win.
