Idols earn one week reprieve; new time slot up

In the most lackluster results show yet, Ryan Agoncillo announced that, due to technical problems on the part of Sun Cellular and Smart Telecommunications, no Idol candidate would be voted off this week.

Instead of a tense night, the judges were given a choice each to select one Idol contestant who would perform an encore (arguably the best three, therefore). Wency Cornejo chose Arms Cruz; Pilita Corrales chose Mau Marcelo; Ryan Cayabyab chose Gian Magdangal.

Please note that next week's performance night is scheduled on Sunday (after the PBA broadcast); results night would then air the next day, a Monday.

Fan feedback on how this new time slot would affect ratings, given the unpredictable ending time of the basketball games and that the next day is a working- and schoolday, with performers slated for later performance slots now disadvantaged, is not yet out. What do you think?
