Network rolls out big guns in late August; Fringe to follow House, Dollhouse set for midseason.
May 15, 2008
Fox moves fall to late summer

Fox was the last of the major networks to unveil its 2008-2009 prime-time schedule, and from the looks of it, it used its position to its advantage.

Though the new most-watched network was last to present its schedule to advertisers in New York City, it looks as though it will be first to show its new programming to viewers. Fox will kick off its season in late August with a week of two-hour premiere events in an effort to build up audiences early, beginning with the debut of Prison Break's fourth season on August 25.

That is followed the next day by the debut of what Fox hopes will be the next big television hit: J.J. Abrams' new sci-fi action show Fringe. Fringe, one of two new shows in Fox's ...

Fox's fall begins mid-September

Ask any normal person when the fall starts, and they'll generally say, "During the September equinox, when the sun crosses the equator and nights are just as long as days." OK, most people will probably just say sometime in September, but for those who worship the boob tube, the season of fall begins when television network execs say it does.

Fox unveiled its fall lineup yesterday, and according to its programming directors, late August will be the beginning of the end of summer, and fall will really kick into gear on September 17.

The reality specialist will roll out its bread and butter on August 30, with the series premiere of the grade-school beatdown Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader at 8 p.m. On September 8, justice will be served with the season premiers of Cops and America's Most Wanted: America Fights Back.

America's Most Wanted is not only the longest-running TV series in the history of the FOX network but the eighth-longest running prime time network show ever and credited for bringing reality television to mainstream. The idea for the show came from other reality crime shows in the 60s and 80s. By the summer of 1987, FOX executive Stephen Chao and Executive Producer Michael Linder had the idea for America's Most Wanted. It premiered on February 7, 1988 and within four days of the first broadcast convicted killer David James Roberts was captured. The show was canceled for a month and a half in the fall of 1996 but returned after protests from the public, law enforcement, government officials and low ratings for the shows replacing America's Most Wanted.

Now in it's 22nd season, America's Most Wanted has captured 1057 fugitives and recovered 59 missing persons. The toll-free-hotline number to report any tips on any case featured on the show is 1-800-CRIME-TV (1-800-274-6388).
