FOX Announces Summer 2008 Schedule

FOX LogoSeason Four Of So You Think You Can Dance Set For May 22nd Premiere

Television’s summer season begins this May with Season Four of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and the premiere of unscripted series WHEN WOMEN RULE THE WORLD (working title). Favorite shows continue throughout the summer with all-new episodes of the smash hit THE MOMENT OF TRUTH and culinary competition HELL’S KITCHEN.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, the high-stepping sensation from the producers of AMERICAN IDOL, again promises to keep viewers moving to a different beat, as dancers skilled in styles ranging from street to ballroom compete to be named America’s favorite. Hosted by Cat Deeley, Season Four of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE kicks off with a two-night, four-hour premiere Thursday, May 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Wednesday, May 28 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Once the DANCE auditions conclude, weekly performance shows will air on Wednesdays (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and weekly results shows will air on Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Unscripted role-reversal series, WHEN WOMEN RULE THE WORLD (working title), will debut with a special two-hour premiere Monday, June 2 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Set in a primitive, remote location, the series explores what happens when a group of strong, educated and independent women, tired of living in a man’s world, rule over a group of unsuspecting men used to calling the shots. The series will air in its regularly scheduled time period beginning Monday, June 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

All-new episodes of FOX favorites THE MOMENT OF TRUTH, HELL’S KITCHEN, COPS and AMERICA’S MOST WANTED will continue through the summer. THE MOMENT OF TRUTH, the smash game show that puts participants to the test – the lie detector test – will continue with all-new episodes airing Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) starting June 12.  After premiering Tuesday, April 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) HELL’S KITCHEN, the culinary competition in which a kitchen-full of wannabe restaurateurs try to impress mercurial master chef Gordon Ramsay, will continue to heat up, while counting down to the winner, with all-new episodes on Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).  The most arresting night of television continues on Saturdays with all-new episodes of COPS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) and AMERICA’S MOST WANTED (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Fan favorite BONES continues airing encores on Mondays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) all summer, and HOUSE moves to Tuesdays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) with encores starting May 27.  Second runs of ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? will join encores of Sunday night’s animated comedies – THE SIMPSONS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), KING OF THE HILL (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), FAMILY GUY (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and AMERICAN DAD (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) – when the game show has its time period premiere Sunday, June 1 (7:00-8:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
