FOX's Spring schedule is much more interesting than its Fall counterpart. It also contains the single greatest announcement I've heard all week: the American Idol
Results Show is going back to a half hour. That wasn't so hard, now, was it FOX? FOX has mastered the art of different, high-profile shows sharing time slots in different parts of the year. As a result, FOX airs less re-runs and makes up for the fact that they run one hour of television less per night than the other three major networks. FOX January and onward schedule is below, but remember – FOX is always very flexible with their schedule.

New Spring Show:
The new Joss Whedon series stars Eliza Dushku as Echo, a member of an illegal group of “Actives” who have their personalities wiped clean and can be imprinted with any new persona a customer sees fit. Echo, as the series moves along, starts to remember things.
Shot documentary style, millionaires are immersed in an impoverished community and are forced to live on minimum wage. After their life-changing experience, they give away money.
Sit Down, Shut Up
An animated comedy from Mitchell Hurwitz about a dysfunctional high school faculty.
The Cleveland Show
A spin-off of Family Guy
starring Cleveland and his new family in Virginia.
The American Idol
news is spectacular. Dollhouse
might be a can't miss night for TV viewers. Fringe
is obviously a top priority for FOX, as they are going to keep it going from Fall to Spring, and pair it with Idol in the latter part of the year. The Cleveland Show
intrigues me slightly, but Secret Millionaire
