Fox announces ‘American Idol’ 2011 new TV schedule on January, which will be aired every Wednesday and Thursday nights, according to its official website recently.

As posted at on Friday, the top talent show ‘American Idol’ will be moved to every Wednesday and Thursday nights, instead of the usual Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

American Idol’ 2011 season premiere will be on January 19, Wednesday, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.(two hours), while Part 2 will be on January 20, Thursday, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Incidentally, the ‘American Idol’ 2011 will also have new judges including Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, who will be joining Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest.

American Idol’s new schedule was prompted by the new schedule of CBS’ reality TV show ‘Survivor’, which was from every Thursday night to Wednesday nights.

“Here’s the opportunity we’ve been waiting for,” Fox‘s executive vice president Preston Beckman said about the new schedule.

“Thursday just isn’t what it used to be … there are still some of the strongest shows on TV, but none of them are in growth mode.” He added.

Meanwhile, Fox also said it is optimistic that the show will remain as the No. 1 show despite of its new schedule and without Simon Cowell, who has been its judge for almost 10 years.

Other new TV schedules of ‘American Idol‘ will include the following:

Wednesdays, starting January 26, 8:00-9:00 PM

Wednesdays, starting February 16, 8:00-10:00 PM (Two hours)

Wednesdays, starting April 6, 8:00-9:30 PM (90-Minute Episodes)
