On TV tonight; ‘American Idol’

group2.JPG “American Idol,” 8 p.m. KMPH (Channel 26.1): Here we go again. The 11th season of “American Idol” opens with auditions that include the same blend of potential winners and those who just want to get on TV. The first few weeks will be the open tryouts which means the music competition series won’t get serious until the first invites have been handed out.

Executive producer Ken Warwick says that this year’s group of contenders is one of the strongest yet.

“Our last day in Vegas this time, we had to call all the kids back on stage at the end of the two days because we just had too many, and the judges had to make a decision as to who would be going home. And I tell you now it was incredibly difficult,” Warwick says. “Half of those kids five years ago would have won ‘Idol,’ and they’ve been sent home.”

“American Idol” continues at 8 p.m. Thursday.
