Bounced Ch 9 show airs today

Bounced Ch 9 show airs today
“A New You,” the Ch. 9 show pulled from Friday’s lineup at the last minute, airs at 8 p.m. today instead of ABC’s “According to Jim.” The special with local plastic surgeon Mark Mandell-Brown, which was advertised in the Enquirer last Thursday and Friday, was pre-empted when ABC expanded Friday’s “Dancing with the Stars” results show to an hour.
Now the bad news: It airs against the season opener for “American Idol,” always one of the most popular TV series each year. Tonight opens with auditions, and more hilariously bad singers, which to me is more fun to watch than the actual competition starting March 14 (two months away!). Does Fox know how to milk this, or what?

Whew... I'm trying to endure that Tricia/Garth song right now. Garth can do much better on his own. Their individual styles are too different.
