Fox reschedules 'Lot' premiere
EmptyFox has pushed back the launch of its Steven Spielberg-Mark Burnett reality show "On the Lot." But the postponement gives the filmmaking contest series a bigger boost than it might have had on its original premiere date.
The program now is set to debut Tuesday, May 22, after the final performance episode of "American Idol." The second episode will air Thursday, May 24. The series then moves to its regular nights, with a two-hour episode Monday, May 28, and the first round of elimination the next night.
"On the Lot" originally was scheduled to premiere May 16, then take a week off during "Idol's" final week of broadcasts.
