Fox slides sched back a week

Fox surprised some people in the middle of last month when it announced that it would kick off its fall season in late August, about a week earlier than the rest of the networks. August 25 was to see the two-hour fourth-season premiere of Prison Break, followed by more two-hour specials during the rest of the week.

Well, it turns out Fox was just playing around. The network readjusted its schedule yesterday, pushing everything back a week and lining up with its rivals.

The fourth season of Prison Break will now bow on September 1, with two-hour premieres of Bones (September 3), The Moment of Truth (September 4), and Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader (September 5) following.

The following week will see the more traditional Fox fall lineup take shape, with premieres of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on September 8, Fringe on September 9, and 'Til Death and Do Not Disturb on September 10. House makes its season premiere September 16, and the shows comprising Fox's Sunday animation block all kick off their seasons on September 28.

Also hate FOX but will tune in for Bones, Prison Break, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, KOTH & The Simpsons BUT i doubt i'll be following any new shows as FOX will eventually cancel them after one season ( if they reach that far ).

HATE FOX but i'll probably tune in to Fringe.

The Fox shows are still starting ahead of CBS, ABC, and NBC just closer to the other networks start date, and FOX doesn't have to worry about NBC, they'be been dead last in ratings for awhile now. So, Fox will easily overcome them no matter what.

This is SWEET, though the season tease was uncalled for. Prison Break is by far, one of the BEST suspense dramas in TV. Looking forward to the FOX Fall Programming Schedule!

I remember when the OC started on fox in the summer and that was the only reason i watched the show because there was nothing else on, so i think that this is a bad move especially for new shows
Reply

Not a bad move in my opinion. NBC has already scheduled their premiers for the last week in September and both CBS and ABC usually do the same week or around the same week. Makes more sense to have premiers out of the summer season. I would say Prison Break on Labor Day is a risky move but not only does it have a loyal following which will probably tune in no matter what but as The Andromadan Strain just proved you can get huge audiences even on a holiday.

Bad move. They should have started first so that they would have a better chance of snagging viewers and keeping them. Starting early would have guaranteed them better openning numbers.
