Exclusive: GLEE to be Paired with AMERICAN IDOL in 2010

Cory Monteith and the TV Addict, Toronto, November 2009

Good News: In our exclusive one-on-one with GLEE star and fellow Canadian Cory Montieth, the actor talked candidly about how his life has changed since GLEE catapulted him to world-wide fame and what to expect from the final string of episodes prior to the show’s holiday hiatus. Bad News: You’ll have to wait until Wednesday for the interview in its entirety. And until then, settle for this good (albeit slightly obvious) news. According to Monteith, it’s official: GLEE is being paired up with the powerhouse that is AMERICAN IDOL when the show returns in 2010. Pass it on.

  • Big boost in perspective! It’s logical.

    Well, I suppose it was between that and moving Fringe to AI’s night. I think Glee fits a little bit better with AI’s demo.

  • Josh Emerson

    How is this news? Fox said at the upfronts that Glee would be airing with AI in the spring.

  • John

    Hmm, I’m still trying to figure out FOX’s schedule.

    MONDAY: House and 24
    TUESDAY: Idol
    WEDNESDAY: Idol and Glee
    THURSDAY: Bones and Human Target?
    FRIDAY: Lie to Me and Past Life?

    They’ve always got Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, Moment of Truth, Kitchen Nightmares, Don’t Forget the Lyrics and a few other things to for Friday.

    But where is Fringe gonna go?

  • Ace

    I’m betting Fringe stays right where it is and Lie to Me gets benched for a while or they wait to bring on Past Life.

  • TVFan

    Bad news for FRINGE. But happy for Glee all the same.

  • What great news. Two incredible shows, should be tough to beat.

    Fox announced this in May 2009–here’s the midseason schedule as they announced it: http://www.fox.com/programming/fox10.php

  • I really love this show.. I have watched all episodes and I can’t wait for the next one…!

  • I will admit that AI is getting a little boring but I still like it because it is an “easy” watch for us.
