American Idol Tonight January 12: Start Time, TV Schedule
American Idol premieres tonight January 12 and this will be season 9 of the most popular show on Fox (so popular the network even took off Glee so as not to affect their Idol programing).
American Idol will start at 8 / 7 central on your Fox channel but it will also be on tomorrow night, January 13th as well.
Season 9 will not only be Simon Cowell's last season of Idol, but it will also see the debut of Ellen DeGeneres (although only for the end, not for the auditions).
Tonight will showcase auditions from Boston and many are hoping the audition process will be just as entertaining as other seasons.
