Fox's official plan for the 2009-10 TV season includes good news for House and Bones fans: The two popular series are staying put on their respective nights. They'll also boost two returning freshman series: Tim Roth's Lie to Me has scored the plum après-House berth on Monday, while Fringe will lead out of Bones on Thursday.
Dollhouse will remain in the Fridays-at-9 pm slot, where its new lead-in will be a pair of live-action comedies — Brothers, starring former NFL star Michael Strahan, and [groan] 'Til Death.
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles has officially been powered down. Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly tells TVGuide.com that no matter how well Christian Bale's Terminator Salvation theatrical release does, the TV series will not be baaaack.
On the reality front, So You Think You Can Dance enthusiasts can do a little jig to celebrate the fact that not long after the show's about-to-launch summer season ends, a fall edition will kick up its heels, airing on Tuesday (with a two-hour performance show) and Wednesday. Kevin Reilly says that the intent is to mirror the network's midseason lineup, when American Idol enters the mix.
Wanda Sykes will host a late-night roundtable talk show airing Saturdays at 11 pm.
Among Fox's new offerings, Glee — which gets sneak-peeked this Tuesday, following American Idol's Adam-Kris sing-off — will air on Wednesday, leading out of Dance's results show. The Family Guy spinoff The Cleveland Show will call Sunday-at-8:30 pm home.
Premiering midseason will be Past Life (a reincarnation-tinged thriller series airing Tuesdays at 9 pm), Human Target (with Mark Valley as an elite bodyguard, replacing Glee on Wednesdays) and the comedy Sons of Tucson (starring Tyler Labine and targeted for Sundays).
