American Idol ain't broke

american idolFOX has announced its premiere dates for the next edition of American Idol, and the network is once again steering clear of Thursday nights. There's speculation every year that FOX will put American Idol on Thursdays, to knock down other big ratings getters like Grey's Anatomy and CSI. Once again, FOX understands that what it has is known as a good thing*. And, why mess with that?

Season six of American Idol will debut with two-hour specials on Tuesday, January 16 and Wednesday, January 17th. The network will stick to Tuesdays and Wednesdays for Idol-- but will probably throw in an occasional Thursday show just to put a scare into the other networks.

*By saying "a good thing", I mean it makes FOX a lot of cash. We all know that FOX will mess with good things (ahem... Firefly) that aren't mega-hits.
