Fox Drops the ‘American Idol’ Bomb on ‘Modern Family’

December 18, 2009 by · 4 Comments
Filed under: Modern Family News 

Fox has decided to aim a missile directly at heart of ABC’s young comedy hit “Modern Family.”

The network Friday confirmed that it will move new drama “Human Target” from its originally announced 9 p.m. Wednesday time slot to 8 p.m. Wednesdays. Its replacement: The “American Idol” results show, which had been set to air at 8 p.m. Wednesdays.

The shift could make it tougher for “Modern Family” — which is produced by Fox sibling 20th Century Fox TV– to gain momentum in the winter. The same is true for ABC’s “Cougar Town”.

Idol vs. Modern Family – who will win?
Good thing we have a DVR.
