FALL TV REPORT CARD 2009: FOX

NEW SHOWS: Three new shows aired this fall on Number One Fox, and only BROTHERS looks to be canned. The other two, GLEE and THE CLEVELAND SHOW, are modest hits, with GLEE being a huge buzz-worthy show. Well done! GRADE: B+

RETURNING SHOWS: FOX also had great success with the returning HOUSE and BONES, though LIE TO ME and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE fell short. Also looking scary were the returns for FRINGE and TIL DEATH, while DOLLHOUSE has already met its maker. The best news of all, though, had to be FOXs ANIMATION DOMINATION of returning comedies SIMPSONS, AMERICAN DAD and FAMILY GUY. GRADE: B+

LOOKING AHEAD: Look for SONS OF TUCSON to take over BROTHERS, while things get a bit trickier finding slots for new shows PAST LIFE and HUMAN TARGET. Why? Because behemoth shows AMERICAN IDOL and 24 invade the airwaves in January.

FOX NIGHT BY NIGHT:
MONDAY: HOUSE made a huge comeback this fall, which helped out LIE TO ME to some degree. GRADE: A

TUESDAY: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE at 2 hours following a summer run hasnt been music to FOXs ears. GRADE: C+

WEDNESDAY: YAWN to the DANCE's results show, but BRAVO to GLEE following it. GRADE: B

THURSDAY: BONES has improved the timeslot, but moving to FRINGE to the 9 pm hour hasnt paid off. GRADE: B-

FRIDAY: A disaster! BROTHERS has already been relocated to Sundays, TIL DEATH has been put back on hiatus, and DOLLHOUSE has already been canned. GRADE: F

SUNDAY: ANIMATION DOMINATION, need I say more? GRADE: A

OVERALL GRADE: B-
