FOX shakes up lineup to make room for new shows - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 20th 2007 1:17PM
Fox logoFOX really does it up for TCA: there was a Hell's Kitchen omelette breakfast, and the entire ballroom was done up in silver tablecloths and silver chairs. The pages wore parkas, I guess playing up the "winter" theme, despite the fact we're in semi-warm Pasadena.

But the biggest news is the press release they put out announcing some of their schedule changes. In order to accommodate three new series, the network will move 'Til Death will air on Wednesdays at 9:30, after American Idol, starting on March 14 (there will be post-Idol airings on Feb. 27 and 28, as well). The War at Home moves to Sundays at 7:30, starting March 4, and Standoff will air on Fridays at 8, starting March 30.

The new shows: Tim Minear's Drive, which will launch with a 2-night, 3-hour premiere on April 15 and 16 (then take Prison Break's timeslot when its over - thanks, Jefferson!). The Winner, with Rob Corddry, will premiere with two episodes on March 4, then air for 3 consecutive Sundays at 8:30 and 9:30 PM. Finally, The Wedding Bells premieres March 9; there will be a post-Idol sneak peek on March 7.

Thanks, Joel. I suppose the only thing that could possibly save 'Til Death would be a post Idol time slot.

Stand Off can't come on before House, AI is on then.

I liked the time slot you had for Stand Off coming on before House. It is my favorite new show.

What about Bones?
I assumed it would be on Wednesdays after American Idol.

Howdy. Thanks for the report. Read the Drive will air Mondays at 8pm/7pm Central after Prison Break wraps up it's second season on either April 2 or 9.
