‘Idol’ folks everywhere

McPhee to guest on ABC's 'Betty'

With “American Idol” starting season six next week on Fox, the other networks are trying to cash in on the phenomenon as well.

Last year’s runner-up Katharine McPhee will guest star as herself in an upcoming episode of ABC’s nom “Ugly Betty.” McPhee will appear in the Feb. 1 episode, titled “I’m Coming Out” about Mode magazine’s runway show. Ep marks the beginning of February sweeps.

In a bit of cross-promotion, two days earlier McPhee’s self-titled album will be released.

Kelly Clarkson, the winner of the first season of “Idol” and a bonafide music star, will guest on this Sunday’s CW comedy “Reba.”
