Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Fox isn’t going to scale back American Idol’s two-hour performance shows, as it originally planned.

Fox intended to downsize the Wednesday night performance shows to 90 minutes early next month to make room for I Hate My Teenage Daughter.  The Jaime Pressly comedy currently airs Tuesday nights, but was slated to move to the post-Idol time slot on April 4.

Fox changed its mind on Thursday, announcing that I Hate My Teenage Daughter will go on hiatus following a new episode scheduled to air April 3, according to The Hollywood Reporter.  The remaining original episodes will air in the summer — a possible sign that the ratings-challenged show will be cancelled.
