Today FOX announced its summer schedule and there will be a lot of new action to choose from.  Reality giants So You Think You Can Dance and Hell's Kitchen will return while scripted shows Lie to Me and the canceled Past Life will find their way back to the lineup.  Summer will also mark the premiere of a new FOX drama, the buddy cop show The Good Guys starring The West Wing's Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks.

The Good Guys will get a special preview Wednesday, May 19 at 8pm before American Idol's second-to-last results show before settling into its regular timeslot on Mondays.   So You Think You Can Dance kicks off as soon as American Idol is over with a two-hour premiere Thursday, May 27.  Two weeks later, Hell's Kitchen takes over Thursdays with its two-hour premiere June 10.
