|Idol & Empire Pack Bona Fide 1 – 2 Punch for Wednesday Nights|
For over a decade Fox viewers have tuned into one of televisions most sought programs. American Idol entered its 14th season with some critics saying "this was it". Well unless there is a dramatic change in viewership it appears the critics were wrong. In week three of the new season Idol led the 7 o'clock hour as the most watched show on network television. Tens of thousands still flock to the try-outs across the country, all hoping to fill the shoes of past winners like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and countless others. Idol's impact on the entertainment industry resonates beyond the scope of television. Over the past 13 seasons finalists have released a combined 200 albums, scored 420 #1 Billboard hits, generated more than 250 million iTune downloads and have been certified with 95 Gold and 83 Platinum records. As always, tune into KTTW Fox 7 each Wednesday and Thursday night and enjoy the ride.
