The program featured the first full-length interview with the most recent eliminated contestant and various behind-the-scenes material. It was hosted by Jillian Reynolds and co-hosted by Ace Young, a former contestant of the show. Jillian interviewed each week's eliminated contestant as well as Idol contestants from years past. The show included exclusive behind the scenes packages from the Idol show as well as live, in studio, performances by former Idols. Judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Kara DioGuardi were periodically interviewed after the results show tapings. The show premiered in 2006 and was shown on both Fox Reality Channel and The 101 Network. Ty Treadway was the host that season and Mikalah Gordon and Matthew Rogers served as cohosts. The second season brought some changes. JD Roberto became the host and the show became exclusive to Fox Reality Channel. In addition, the show is now taped on a stage of CBS Television City adjacent to the Idol studio in front of a live studio audience.
