This morning FOX announced its fall and mid-season schedule, complete with  seven new shows and some notable changes to the channel's biggest shows. Joining the network will be four new comedies and three new dramas, including Running Wilde, a romantic comedy starring Will Arnett (of Arrested Development) and Keri Russell (of Felicity fame).

In spite of the exciting news that Gob Bluth will be returning to FOX, we think the most interesting tidbits that came out of the FOX announcements have to do with the network's established shows. American Idol will be getting rid of some of the guest performers and cutting down the results show to 30 minutes, Glee will get the coveted post-Super Bowl slot and there will blessedly not be a fall season of So You Think You Can Dance.

Here are the full fall and mid-season schedules from FOX, complete with new show synopses:


Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

Running Wilde:  This romantic comedy centers on a lovable but immature playboy trying desperately to win (or buy) the heart of his childhood sweetheart, the uber-liberal humanitarian who got away. (Starring: Will Arnett and Felicity Huffman)

Lonestar: Courtesy of the creators of Party of Five, this Texas-based drama is set against the sprawling backdrop of big Texas oil. (Starring Jon Voight and Adrianne Palicki.)

Ride-Along: A Chicago based cop drama from the creators of The Shield. (Starring Jason Clarke and Jennifer Beals.)

Terra-Nova: A Steven Spielberg produced time-traveling adventure that follows an "ordinary family on an extraordinary journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as part of a massive expedition to save the human race."

Bob's Burgers: The latest animated family to join FOX tells the tale of Bob, his quirky family and their floundering burger joint.
