America is about to get even more Idol. Fox announced that the American Idol results episodes will be expanded to an hour-long program.
The program change will take place on Wednesday March 12 from 9 PM ET to 10 PM ET. During these shows, the votes will be counted and eliminations are made with the remaining contestants performing on the following Tuesday program.
The only deviation from that schedule will be in April when the Idol Gives Back special is set to air on April 9 from 8 PM ET to 10 PM ET. The results show for that week will air on Thursday April 10 at 9 PM ET.
