'Idol' moves to Wednesdays and Thursdays for season 10

"American Idol" is moving to Wednesdays and Thursdays for its 10th season.

The hit reality show's move comes in a major shake-up of Fox's primetime lineup. "Idol" has been broadcast on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for most of the last decade.

The season will kick off with a two-night premiere on Wednesday, January 19, at 8 p.m. ET, according to, the official website of the show's ubiquitous host.

The show's fresh judging panel will also make its debut, with singer-actor Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler joining veteran judge Randy Jackson.

    I watch AI season 10. I hope it's better than last year. Boring as h3ll. I'm just not sure about Lopez. She doesn't impress me in the least. Tyler? He was relevant 30 years ago.

    Seems the network has more faith in the show than the viewers here.
    I wonder what it will be like. ... JLO seems to have her stuff together and Steven seems to have held on really well through the dimented 70's and Idol wouldn't be idol without DUDE!
    It's Americas Got Talent that I could do without. Just MYOP.
