American Idol Moves To New Nights For 2011 Season

Sheesh, American Idol. What’s going on over there? You’ve changed your judges, changed out the production team, eliminated the Top 24, and now you’ve even changed when we get to watch you. Today FOX announced that despite a long standing schedule of Tuesdays and Wednesdays that this season we’ll instead be watching performance shows on Wednesdays and eliminations on Thursdays.

The Associated Press reminds us with this news that Lee DeWyze was crowned with 5 million fewer viewers than when Adam Lambert was robbed Kris Allen won the year before. So yes, they need to do something, but do they need to change everything at once?! Well, let’s hope it all works out for the best.
