Repeats of House and Bones will take over for the Joss Whedon program - and comedies ‘Til Death and - starting November 6.

FOX Reveals Fall Schedule


With the spring season winding down, the fall season is already waiting to heat up this November. FOX has unveiled their upcoming schedule, so you can anticipate all through the long weeks of summer reality shows.

FOX staples like House, So You think You Can Dance and Bones will all retain their usual weekday time slots, with Fringe and Lie To Me both getting the renewal nod. The musical comedy will appear on Wednesday, right after the Dance results show.

Friday will be a night of new programming for some viewers, as FOX has shifted their much-moved ‘Til Death into this space with two newbies. Brothers will premiere at the top of the 8 o’clock hour, with Dollhouse rounding out the latter half of the 8-10 block.
