‘American Housewife’ and ‘American Idol’ to Air Crossover Episode in March

ABC’s “American Housewife” and “American Idol” are airing a crossover episode in March, the network announced Tuesday at the Television Critics Association press tour.

The “American Housewife” episode, which is semi-confusingly titled “American Idol,” is set for Tuesday, March 19 at 8/7c. It will include guest spots from “Idol” judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie and host Ryan Seacrest.

“American Housewife’s” “American Idol” follows Taylor’s (Meg Donnelly) dream of becoming a musical superstar, per ABC. Parents Katie (Katy Mixon) and Greg (Diedrich Bader) are skeptical when Taylor announces she will use her college fund to travel to Los Angeles, audition for “American Idol,” wow the judges and become an overnight sensation — but Taylor’s passion is undeniable.

The episode was written by Jordan Roter and directed by John Putch. It won’t be the lone musical episode of this third season of “Housewife.”
