Interesting development with Jennifer Lopez's talent competition show "Q'Viva! The Chosen": Fox just picked it up. This is the English-language version. (Univision has rights to the Spanish-language version.) It'll air Saturdays starting early next month. 

What's so interesting? Well, Fox is about to have a whole lot of JLo -- on Wednesdays, Thursdays and now Saturdays. It's a gamble as well, because the profusion of music reality competition has already cut into "American Idol's" audience. But maybe this is part of the price of keeping Lopez happy. 

More details from the release: Q’VIVA! THE CHOSEN, the first-of-its-kind docu-journey series showcasing Latin music and dance, and featuring entertainment icon Jennifer Lopez, international music star Marc Anthony and world-renowned concert director Jamie King, will premiere Saturday, March 3 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, and will continue with two-hour episodes for five weeks until its grand finale Saturday, April 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). In Q’VIVA! THE CHOSEN, Lopez, Anthony and King will travel through 20 countries to find and showcase the most outstanding Latin singers, dancers, musicians and other amazing performers. The transcontinental journey, which includes stops in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Panama, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, Venezuela and the United States will also feature the incredible stories and personal journeys of the performers they discover.
