Fox Trots Out New Shows
Fox unveiled seven new scripted shows for next season Thursday, but viewers will have to wait until January to see four of them. For most of the fall, viewers will be getting a somewhat reduced diet of baseball playoffs and unscripted reality series. They will also be able to check out two new dramas, K-Ville and New Amsterdam and the Kelsey Grammer-Patricia Heaton sitcom Back to You. However, the most anticipated new entry, The Sarah Connor Chronicles will not debut until January. When it does, it will take over the time period that The X-Files once dominated, Sundays at 9:00 p.m. and will air without repeats. Meeting with reporters, Fox Entertainment President Peter Liguori said Thursday, "It's always better to take your precious creative gems and try to run them straight through." Meanwhile, Fox has decided not to use the post-Super Bowl spot to promote one of its new series. Instead, the slot will go to its hit drama series House.
