Fox has announced some scheduling changes, and has moved American Idol from Tuesday and Wednesday nights to Wednesday and Thursday nights at 8:00pm. Following the Idol results show will be Bones, which means that Fringe has been moved to Fridays at 9:00pm.
The show has been struggling in the ratings as of late, and this move could be a sign that this season will be its last. Fridays have a history of being the last stop for flaggling series.
The move takes effect on January 28, 2011. How Fringe fares in its final episodes of the season will surely determine whether Fox continues on with the show.
