Fox's 'Fringe' Gets A Mid-Season 'Idol' Boost

With the new year just around the corner, Fox is mixing up their mid-season lineup with some great changes that’ll benefit FRINGE. Currently, the show has a lead-in from the popular HOUSE, but now, the show will get an even BIGGER lead-in from the IMMENSELY popular AMERICAN IDOL! Per Mediapost.com and Reuters, the lineup will change starting on January 13th, “American Idol” will have two two-hour season premieres on Tuesday, January 13 and Wednesday, January 14 before it settles into its regular hour-long Tuesday 8 p.m. and Wednesday 8 p.m. shows. After the premieres, FRINGE will settle in on January 20th (Inauguration Day!) at 9 p.m.

Hopefully, this lead-in will give it an even bigger boost than House did. It’s great to see Fox giving the show such a great chance to keep the current viewers happy and bring in new potential fans.
