    The big news in addition to Fox's schedule is that Fox will do a 2 hour "prequel" that will set up the new season of 24, and it will air in November. No major details about the plot, except that Jack Bauer is dealing with an international crisis while the new president is about to be inaugurated.

    Ooo. That has "desparate grab for ratings" written all over it. I'm a little surprised Seth McFarlane would be doing it--unless he has a really good idea up his sleeve.

    Wow. They're already planning to move 'Til Death from Wednesdays in the fall to Fridays in January. Are they trying to kill that show?

    Not that I like it--I've never actually watched. I just find it interesting that they're using that strategy.

    As long as House is coming back I don't care about the rest. And American Idol I guess, the wife would complain too much if they canceled that.

    And "The Cleveland Show" is going to be god awful, there's no way it can't be. Family Guy got old about 2 seasons ago, and those characters are actually interesting.

    People still watch 24? Huh.

    And yeah, the Cleveland Show will be god-awful. Somewhat surprised to see the Sarah Connor Chronicles coming back.

    Fringe and Dollhouse can be very interesting. Both the creators have a strong track record. And fringe can't hurt following House.

    Ah - the return of 24 and House. My life can return to some sort of normalcy again...
