After 15 seasons on FOX, producers decamped TV's original singing competition and brought it to ABC, where the only on-screen holdover is Ryan Seacrest. After asking why people had encouraged Kobe to come on the new season of American Idol she asked her this biting, existential question: "You don't listen to music like that, right?"
Keep up with the "American Idol" community and see what's trending on social media from judges, contestants and fans.
"Timeless", 10 p.m. (KING): The time-travel drama returns, with a trio of heroes who travel through time to stop conspirators from manipulating history; a trip back 100 years leads to an encounter with scientists Marie Curie and Irène Joliot-Curie.

The Grand Slam is on as Ireland defeat Scotland in exciting showdown
Still the botched chances hurt. "I think it's important and the half-backs this week will play a big part in the game", he said. Scotland captain John Barclay conceded a penalty in his half but Sexton, again, kicked for touch rather than the posts.
For the time being, our feeling is that the premiere on Sunday will probably bring in a 2.0 in the live+same-day ratings, mostly because of the long layoff between seasons, ABC's promotional campaign, and the presence of Katy Perry as a judge. The 41-year old country singer has had a career since 2006. Which is why he and the other judges often made those contestants sing an already existing hit.

In 2006, the editor and talk show host Judith Regan conducted an interview with O.J.

Seacrest has denied the charge and E! said its internal investigation did not find proof of wrongdoing. We'll find out Sunday when the ABC chapter begins.

No one appears to be aspiring to Simon Cowell's old role of acid-tongued truth-teller (not that I didn't miss him a little), and Bryan, in particular, is so eager to make the judging panel seem like a happy family that he declares them to be like "peas in a pod".
