Hell’s Kitchen, The Daily Show, Dancing with the Stars

-Fox has decided to move Rake (the new show starring Greg Kinnear) from it’s Thursday night slot to a Friday night slot so that Hell’s Kitchen can be on Thursday night. The 12th season begin March 13th at 8/7c, which will be followed by the American Idol results show 9/8c. Rake begins airing new episodes on Friday March 14th at 8/7c. Starting March 27th Surviving Jack (the upcoming show starring Chris Meloni) will start at 9:30/8:30c meaning that the American Idol results show will be reduced to a half hour, for the rest of the season, instead of the usual hour long show. Sorry that seems a bit confusing but all your shows are still airing just at different times and some on different days. When you check your guide, don’t be confused why your show is on at a different time! http://www.tvguide.com/News/Rake-Friday-Move-Hells-Kitchen-1078821.aspx
