Obama's State Of The Union Bumps American Idol, Saves Lost

Apparently when you tell President Obama to get Lost, he does.

Obama’s scheduled his State Of The Union address around the highly-anticipated premiere of the hit ABC drama which is in its result as Obama will now be speaking on Wednesday, January 27.

On the 27th, FOX is moving American Idol from 9pm to 8pm, but the episode of Human Target that is getting the boot, is getting booted to Tuesday, January 26 at 9pm where it will have American Idol as a lead-in. Schedule-wise, that’s trading up for Human Target.

As a result, Kitchen Nightmares loses the Idol boost it was set to get on January 26 though it is still set to get its previously planned Idol boost on February 2.
