Fox Threatens ABC with 'Idol' Lawsuit

From Drudge:

ABC has been warned in writing it could face legal fallout for airing its scathing behind-the-scenes look at FOX's AMERICAN IDOL, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

FOX owner Rupert Murdoch has informed executives that it appears ABC is attempting to maliciously "destroy" the nation's most-watched series as it heads into the final weeks.

Sounds like overheated rhetoric to me though certainly ABC (or NBC and CBS) wouldn't shed any tears over lower ratings of the "Idol" juggernaut.
