season six schedule...

Season Six of American Idol is set to begin Tuesday, Jan. 16 at 8 p.m. (EST). And it looks like they're gonna treat us to more auditions and less Hell Week.

According to the proposed schedule, the Hollywood rounds, also known as Hell Week will be shown in two consecutive episodes over one week, Feb. 13 and 14. That's right. That means five weeks - 10 agonizing hours - of audition footage before the real fun starts. After Hollywood, of course, when the field is narrowed to 24 - 12 men and 12 women - the semi-finals will start until we whittle the final field to 12 finalists.

The show is promising to "blow America away" midway through the season with a twist. Nobody's talking about what we'll be twisting, but with this show anything's game.

Anyway, Tuesday night is, supposedly, Minneapolis, followed by Seattle on Wednesday. Tuesday, Jan. 23 will be Memphis, followed by New York on the 24th. Tuesday, Jan. 30 will be Birmingham, where Idols are made, followed by San Antonio on Jan. 31. Los Angeles will be featured on Tuesday, Feb. 6 and a "the best of the rest" episode follows on Wednesday, Feb. 7. The Hollywood rounds will be the week of Feb. 13 and 14.

We're going men first during the semi-finals this season, with the top 12 guys performing live on Tuesday, Feb. 20 and the top 12 women doing the same the next night, with a one-hour results show on Thursday, Feb. 22.

The finals begin Tuesday, March 13. And for the first time, this season episodes will be available online.

Are you ready?

Our system is set to record also.

Fox in our town said last night that there was a possibility that some past non-winners may be able to compete again..and that there was talk of bringing back guest judges.

Guess we'll see!

Man. I've missed this board.

I've missed Idol, too. I cannot wait for the premiere! Tuesday night, I refuse to answer the phone once 8:00 rolls around. I'll be holed up in my room with a gigantic bowl of popcorn, watching the good, the bad, and the ugly of the auditions. Ahh, the wonders of Idol.

Only a few days left until the premiere...
