Schedules Plus Enhanced: Fox Wednesday




Schedules Plus is the ultimate almanac to broadcast network primetime scheduling since 2001. It features lineups for three different parts of the year, as well as A18-49+ ratings that more fairly account for historical decline. For more on the tables and charts in Schedules Plus, see this primer.

This post covers Fox Wednesday. It's the only night that has been a regularly-scheduled part of every single American Idol season, so the night has some amazing winter/spring averages. But unlike on Tuesday, Idol never really had a long-term companion on Wednesday, and it regularly aired for both Wednesday hours in some of its later seasons. The second-most frequent Fox Wednesday occupant is actually That '70s Show, which was here a lot in the early-to-mid aughts. While Idol is leaving Fox in 2016-17, this night will still be in very good hands with Empire, which has had the two biggest broadcast drama seasons in the A18-49+ era. See the 2017-18 Breakdown.
