You're reading it here first.
M-Net has just decided to repeat the latest season of American Idol on M-Net Series (DStv 110).
American Idol will start on M-Net Series at 11:00 tomorrow (Saturday). The second I hear from M-Net Series in terms of what the subsequent fixed weekly premiere broadcast on the channel will be, I will post it here.
So far as I understand it, the M-Net Series talkshows, The Doctors and Ellen will now fall away temporarily until the American Idol season is finished.
UPDATE Friday 22 Jan 15:47 - Tomorrow's (Saturday) episode at 11:00 will be the first marathon set of episodes that kicked off the new season on M-Net on Sunday. Then, on 30 January American Idol will be on M-Net Series from 11:00 to 13:00.
M-Net will continue to premiere American Idol episodes on a Sunday and then M-Net Series will follow with the same episode on every Saturday.
