As expected, The Four will beat to air ABC's reboot of former Fox mega hit American Idol, which will launch in March and air on Sundays. The Four, Fox's response to Idol 2.0, also will air while NBC's rival singing competition The Voice is on hiatus, on one of the nights the original aired on Fox toward the end of its run.
The network has set the premiere date for its new show, The Four: Battle for Stardom, which is being touted as "a groundbreaking new singing competition series that challenges performers to fight for their life to be the best" - with Sean "Diddy" Combs joining the judging panel.
The Four will premiere in January 2018. This series is about pure competition, fighting for your survival.
