Apparently everyone finally believes them, as we’re all now reporting that Fox won’t be announcing its “American Idol” after all. Probably. (The L.A. Times reports that J-Lo is taking her time before signing, hoping to sweeten the pot.)
That means Fox Networks Group entertainment chair Peter Rice and entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly will have to put on their tap shoes and cut some serious moves to dance around the topic.
Of course, Rice and Reilly at least have plenty of other topics to discuss about the state of Fox. Over at ABC, brand spanking new entertainment topper Paul Lee is going to have very little to say about a network that he hasn’t even started working at.
Hope Lee likes to boogie — because he’s going to have to do an even tighter jig around those Steve McPherson rumors.
Get down, everybody!
