Today FOX officially announced its schedule for the 2009-2010 TV season, and some of the changes are huge.  Aside from the great news that Dollhouse will be coming back for a second season, the other big story is that So You Think You Can Dance, which premieres its fifth season this Thursday, will air in the Fall as well for an immediate sixth season.

The So You Think You Can Dance move is unusual, but helps to balance out the schedule since FOX has American Idol in the Spring.  It also gives FOX the chance to do direct competition with Dancing with the Stars, a show that in recent seasons has taken several professional from former SYTYCD contestants.

More Fall Lineups:
FOX
ABC
NBC
CBS
The CW

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


With three hours of So You Think You Can Dance on the schedule each week, there isn't much room in the Fall schedule for new shows.  House, Lie to Me, Bones, Fringe and Til Death all return in the Fall as do the Sunday animated comedies The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad.

New entries for the Fall include Glee, a new hour-long comedy that has a special premiere presentation tomorrow after the American Idol final performance show.  The other new shows are half-hour comedies: The Cleveland Show, an animated spin-off of Family Guy, and Brothers, a Friday night sitcom starring Michael Strahan (yes, former NFL star Michael Strahan).

FOX will also try a new Saturday night talk show by giving recent White House Correspondents Dinner host Wanda Sykes her own show.


Here is the Fall schedule for FOX:

MONDAY:
8pm - House
9pm - Lie to Me

FOX also revealed its plans for the Spring season which brings more new shows.  Two new dramas, Human Target and Past Life, will premiere in the Winter.  Human Target is an action series based on a popular graphic novel about a man who protects his clients at all costs while Past Life is about a psychologist who treats her patients by exploring their past lives.

The current Spring schedule keeps Thursday and Friday nights the same while adding 24, preempting Glee until the Spring, and introducing a new comedy on Sundays, Sons of Tucson, a live action comedy starring Reaper's Tyler Labine.
