As has become standard for the FOX, in unveiling their new 2010-2011 primetime lineup, the network delivered more than one schedule. While in the past there have been as many as three delivered – fall, January, and spring – this time out we have only been given two. It should most certainly be noted that while the network has stated that the second lineup is the midseason one, the odds that they will in fact deliver the lineup as scheduled are minimal at best. Additionally, do not expect that over the course of a single week the network schedule will magically change – new drama Lonestar will still air for a while in the new year in its old timeslot as will new comedy Running Wilde.
But, we're getting ahead of ourselves, aren't we? FOX, which performed well this season, has a schedule with few changes to it. In fact, the fall will only see three new shows premiere, with another three set to air in the spring. As with every network, FOX does have other programs sitting on the bench waiting to come in, but if something flounders come the spring, don't surprised to see American Idol airing for multiple two hour runs in a single week.
The two schedules the network delivered are as follows:
|8:30||The Cleveland Show||Cops|
|9:00||Family Guy||Lonestar||Raising Hope||Hell's
|Fringe||The Good Guys||America's Most
|9:30||American Dad||Running Wilde|
|8:30||Bob's Burgers||Idol Results||Cops|
Fall's new shows are the hour-long drama Lonestar, and two half-hour comedies, Raising Hope and Running Wilde. these last two will be airing back-to-back on Tuesdays out of Glee.
