IT'S FOX'S TURN: Fox, which announced its fall lineup today, is adding five new dramas and two new comedies next season. The new series include the sitcom Kitchen Confidential, about a chef (Alias' Bradley Cooper) trying to make a comeback (ETA: this is the show that also stars Nick Brendon); Bones, a drama about a forensic anthropologist (Emily Deschanel) who teams up with an agent (Angel's David Boreanaz) to solve crimes (ETA: This will be paired with House on Tuesdays); the legal drama Head Cases, starring Chris O'Donnell, and the high-concept soap Reunion, which chronicles the lives of six friends over the course of 20 years. The twist? Each episode represents one year. Among current shows, Arrested Development is being bounced from Sunday to Monday for the first half of the season, while Malcolm in the Middle will relocate to Fridays at 8:30 pm, following The Bernie Mac Show. Meanwhile, freshman smash House will stay put on Tuesdays until American Idol returns in January, at which point Hugh Laurie and Co. will be paired with 24 on Monday. Got all that?
I honestly don't see how being paired with '24' can hurt 'House', so I'm not fretting about this.
