Last season of 'American Idol' set for Fox's 2015-16 lineup

NEW YORK (AP) — Fox says “American Idol” will air its 15th and final season next year.

The once-blockbuster singing contest, which launched the careers of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson, has seen its audience dwindle and age.

“Idol” will return in January for its 15th and final season with host Ryan Seacrest and judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr., Fox said Monday.

Ten new series will debut next season on Fox, including the comedy-horror series “Scream Queens” from “Glee” producer Ryan Murphy.

New dramas will include “Minority Report,” based on Steven Spielberg’s futuristic film, and “The Frankenstein Code,” about a resurrected former lawman.

Fox and the other broadcast networks are unveiling their plans to advertisers in New York this week to lure them to spend on their programs.
