Fox has renewed Fringe for a second season, the network announced Monday.

Kate and Jon Gosselin
Will the new season of Jon & Kate Plus Eight address the scandal over photos of Jon Gosselin leaving a bar with another woman?

Kara DioGuardi and Randy Jackson, American Idol
Nearly 60 percent of TVGuide.com voters want American Idol to dump Kara DioGaurdi from the judges' table.
Though the newcomer has brought some credible music industry insight to the panel, 59 percent of TVGuide.com voters would rather the show not renew DioGuardi's one-season contract, arguing that four judges are too many.
Among all the changes made to Idol this season, the one that has been the most hotly debated is DioGuardi's addition. Earlier this season, the judges' commentary forced Idol to run eight minutes long, interrupting Fringe and upsetting millions of DVR viewers. A week later, each contestant was only critiqued by two judges instead of the entire panel.
