Fox Tweaks Post-strike Sched (Again)

Just when we thought we had the spring and summer mapped out, Fox has retooled its midseason schedule, announcing plans to launch fresh eps of House, Bones, Back to You and 'Til Death starting in April, among other tweaks. House will be back with new shows on Mondays at 9 pm/ET as of April 28. Freshman series Canterbury's Law, meanwhile, has been moved up from its original April 14 start date to March 10 at 8 pm/ET, while Bones now kicks off on April 14 at 8 pm/ET. Comedies Back to You and 'Til Death have gone into production already, but each also has a few episodes left from pre-strike days. Fox had originally planned to air the remaining two Back to You shows Feb. 26 and 27 and the Death ep March 25. Instead, Death will kick off on April 16 at 8 pm/ET, with Back to You will follow at 8:30 pm/ET. Other Fox faves starting production include 24 (to return in January 2009), The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad, among others. Still need more show updates?

Joely Fisher Thankful for Surviving Car Crash

Joley Fisher by Jemal Countess/WireImage.com

Joely Fisher knows what she's grateful for this Thanksgiving. After a car crash this past Monday, in which Fisher and her daughter True were hit head-on by a 91-year-old man who fell asleep at the wheel, she thanks her lucky stars that they got away unharmed. At the launch party for the book Altar Your Space at the Tara Home store in Los Angeles, the 'Til Death star showed TV Guide a minor burn on her chin from the bursting airbag. "I'm thankful that it wasn't worse than that," says Fisher. "We were belted in and [True] was in a car seat. It's pretty amazing." The accident only added to an already difficult week. Fisher and her costars have shut down production on 'Til Death due to the writers' strike, and they don't expect to start up again anytime soon. "I'm in support of the writers, they're absolutely right. I think the unfortunate thing is that the studios and networks were so prepared for this that they're going to have a huge fight on their hands. We could be in a lot of trou... read more

Chaos Theory: Fox Reshuffles the Poststrike Deck

Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz by Kwaku Alston/FOX

As if the implications of the writers’ strike weren’t already giving us migraines, along comes Fox to make our heads explode with its latest incomprehensible schedule announcement, covering the strike-impacted midseason from January to April (consider most everything you read from here on subject to change). The first piece of bad news was expected: The seventh season of 24 is being postponed indefinitely, until Fox can ensure the entire season can run intact and uninterrupted. Who knows when that will be? Another blow: Fox is finally living up to its threat to move Bones to Fridays, effective Jan. 4, where it will be paired with repeats of House (the Fox equivalent of Law & Order, considering how often the hit medical drama will be peppered throughout the network’s new and unimproved lineup).To try to help make sense of it all, let’s look at the schedule night by night:Monday: With 24 out of the picture, the new big-ticket midseason item is now the action-pa... read more

The Wednesday Battle Begins

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley in Gossip Girl by Andrew Eccles/The CW

Is it possible that this season, Wednesdays are the new Thursdays? An incredible amount of high-profile new programming — nine freshman series in all — will be introduced to the Wednesday prime-time schedule over the next few weeks, and when the dust settles, I can only hope a few of my new favorites will survive.First up are CBS, the CW and Fox, launching their newbies a week before the official season begins. The biggest headlines so far have been generated by CBS' unseen-by-critics and instantly controversial Kid Nation, a reality show in which 40 kids are set loose in a desert ghost town (actually an unused film set) and tasked to create a Utopian adult-free society. Sounded kind of prosocial and heartwarming until all those red flags began to surface about possible abuse of child-labor laws, penurious confidentiality agreements that made boilerplate mention of such possible reality-show liabilities as STDs, and allegations of injuries on the set. Something tells me th... read more

John Cho will guest-star as a private-school principal who squares off with Eddie Kaye Thomas' public school veep in three episodes of Fox's 'Til Death this coming season. With Kal Penn now on House, both Harold and Kumar should have plenty of cash for future White Castle runs. Also per the Hollywood Reporter, Jessalyn Gilsig, aka the mom of Heroes' Claire, has joined the cast of NBC's Backyards & Bullets pilot, playing Mathew St. Patrick's wife.... Camryn Manheim (Ghost Whisperer), Leslie Hope (24) and Kathy Baker (Picket Fences) are all on board for Jesse Stone: Thin Ice, the fifth installment in CBS' hit TV-movie franchise. read more

New Amsterdam May Make a Comeback

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Zuleikha Robinson by Julie Dennis-Brothers/Fox

It’s become a pattern every year that after Fox announces its new fall schedule, one of its new shows disappears as if it’s gone into the Witness Protection Program. So you’ve got to wonder if we’re ever going to see New Amsterdam, the drama that stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as a 400-year-old NYPD detective. Last week the network bumped it to midseason, turning its Tuesday at 8 pm time slot over to Bones instead.Despite a tepid reception for New Amsterdam at the recent Television Critics Association press tour, a Fox insider insisted the show would turn up in 2008 when it could be launched with an American Idol lead-in. The thinking is why take a risk with a new show when the network — which has been a perennially slow starter in the fourth quarter — has its first shot in years to be competitive in the ratings this fall. What will make this fall different? Fox doesn’t have the typically low-rated first round coverage of Major League Baseball’s ... read more

Short Cuts: 'Til Death, Soapy Days and More

An Aug. 21 DVD release date has been set for 'Til Death: The Complete First Season. The catch: You have to watch an American Idol DVD beforehand.... Pat O'Brien has inked a new deal to continue on at The Insider — at a marked pay cut (hello, bargain moustache wax!) and with the show relocating to New York City, sources tell the New York Daily News.... Days of our Lives hits iTunes Tuesday. John Black raises his eyebrow to that! read more

Is their any chance that 'Til ...

Question: Is their any chance that 'Til Death will be renewed for next season and possibly paired up with the new sitcom starring Patricia Heaton and Kelsey Grammer? Since Heaton and Grammer are so well-known for the characters that they have played on other series, what are the chances that their new show will be successful? Sure, they have name recognition, and perhaps people will tune in to watch the first week. Will those viewers accept the actors in their new roles, or will they expect to see Frasier Crane and Debra Barone? Answer: Case in point regarding the previous question: 'Til Death is now looking more and more like a contender for renewal, thanks in large part to the ratings spike that occurred once it was scheduled behind the American Idol results show on Wednesdays. And given the fact that 'Til Death is something of a star vehicle, with the Brad Garrett-Joely Fisher squabbling the primary reason to tune in, it probably would be a good fit with the star-driven ... read more

Greed... Is Good: Idol Expands Results Show Early

OK, who complained to Nigel Lythgoe that you didn't get to see Brandon or Stephanie sing their farewell encores? Supposedly to allow castoffs that final moment in the spotlight (which has been unceremoniously trimmed in recent weeks, especially for DVR users), American Idol producers have decided to expand the Wednesday results show to an hour starting April 11, a month earlier than planned. The move prematurely retires 'Til Death, which had to be lovin' its new inflated ratings but will now air its season finale on the 11th at 8 pm/ET. read more
