FOX Makes Last-Minute Bid For ‘American Idol’
On the news that an “American Idol” deal with ABC was imminent, FOX has made a last-minute bid for the former #1 show. TMZ describes the offer as insane:
FOX is not giving up without a fight because we’ve learned they have come back into the “American Idol” bidding war with what one source connected with the negotiations called an “over-the-top offer.”
Freemantle and CORE are probably trying to get ABC to sweeten the deal with this bit of gossip. Multiple media outlets on Friday have all but confirmed that “American Idol” will air on ABC in March 2018.
Stay tuned! Anything can still happen.
