What's on Fox's Fall 2007-2008 Schedule

rjones.jpgFox loves getting you hooked on a good (and sometimes not-so-good) storyline, only to yank it in four episodes or less. Since they've cancelled everything that doesn't have someone named Simon behind it or Hugh Laurie in front of it, they need a new crop of shows to cancel. Here's what they have planned...

New Shows
Back to You: Fox will probably put all of its marketing eggs into this basket, with "Frasier" star Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton ("Everybody Loves Raymond") at the helm.
Canterbury's Law: Denis Leary is backing this courtroom drama starring ex-"ER" regular Julianna Margulies as an attorney looking to right the wrongfully accused.
Kitchen Nightmares: It sounds like "Hell's Kitchen," it stars Gordon Ramsey -- how is this different from "Hell's Kitchen?"
K-Ville: A police drama set in post-Katrina New Orleans. Anthony Anderson and Cole Hauser star.
Nashville: From the minds behind "Laguna Beach," this docu-soap focuses on the dreams and dream-makers inside Nashville's music scene.
New Amsterdam: The story of an immortal New York homicide detective, from some of the minds behind "The Cider House Rules," "Chocolat" and "Six Feet Under."
The Return of Jezebel James: Parker Posey ("Best in Show") and Lauren Ambrose ("Six Feet Under") are sisters that are opposites, live together, and carry each other's babies -- well one of them does.
The Rules for Starting Over: The Farrelly Brothers developed this story about four friends in Boston trying to start over in their 30s. The quartet includes Craig Bierko ("Cinderella Man") and Rashida Jones ("The Office").
The Sarah Connor Chronicles: picking up where "Terminator 2" left off, "300" star Lena Headey stars as the sci-fi heroine.
The Search for the Next Great American Band: It's "American Idol" for bands -- with an extremely lengthy, awkward title.
When Women Rule the World: The release boasts the achievements of "Joe Millionaire," "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance" and "Temptation Island." That can't be good.

• Drive
• Happy Hour
• Justice
• The O.C.
• The Rich List
• Standoff
• Vanished
• The War at Home
• The Wedding Bells
• The Winner

Looks like ex-Raymond sidekick Brad Garrett was spared for another season. "'Till Death?" Apparently. Which of the newbies look like dead weight? Let the games begin! -- Rachel Cericola

How wicked! Well, let's see.... There's something about Back to You that doesn't sit well with me. I think it could be the next 'Til Death...which, frankly, I hope gets cancelled next season anyway :P. The Sarah Connor Chronicles has me nervous. And I think either K-Ville or New Amsterdam will tank--my guess being the latter. The former gives me a nice Bonesish vibe. However, I am looking forward to The Return of Jezebel James and The Rules for Starting Over. Canterbury's Law could go either the way of Justice. And except for the lamely-titled band idol show, their reality offerings all sound awful. Speaking of which, why didn't they just call it American Band/Supergroup/anyothersynonym?

I agree that The Return of Jezebel James and The Rules for Starting Over look the most promising. But the titles stink! I think MOST of the time when a show has a long title is as good as tanked.

Respect for FOX. House is the best medical drama ever. I adore Hugh Laurie, he is totaly cool guy and I have to say really handsome. He signed contract for 4.season and that's all I need. :-)

Like most FOX shows, the majority of these probably won't last a season. FOX shows tend to not be what they are intended to be. It's comedies are unfunny, its dramas are shallow and uninteresting, and its reality shows are, like all reality shows, boring.

FOX has no problem cancelling a show and insulting talented actors. Ron Livingston and Nathan Fallon is just a couple of their most recent targets of their marketing stupidity.

I sincerely hope that Standoff is given the consideration in the ratings that only summer time dramas on Friday nights can pull. Could we hope beyond hope that FOX has someone over 18 running something somewhere that understands the need to entertain middle America?

This fan of Standoff hopes so, what a waste of talent and what an inane example of a network not giving a #@$% about a new show. til Death is a keeper? uggggh.

I agree Tina, til Death sucks, and you have hit the nail here concerning Fox's love of a big name. It doesn't matter that Brad Garrett is a big name and HAD a hit show. FOX doesn't know good comedy or drama if it bit them in the @$$.

This network clearly has no idea how to market a good drama. The writting for Standoff is decent and actaully got better as the season progressed. Kudos to them for tackle a series from a different point of view, I was so tired of the will they or won't they thing that I found the show Bones to be tedious and wearing me out.

Standoff is worth an hour of your time no matter what night it falls on.

I can't believe standoff is not coming back this fall. Give it a good time slot and you will see how popular it is. If is a favorite of mine, and everyone I talk to.

Does anyone know if there are bringing back The Loop?

-- Posted by: Shawn at August 27, 2007 9:16 PM

"The Loop" was canceled. The show's star has signed on to the CW's "Reaper," which will premiere this fall.
