Only Two New Fox Shows For Fall

Only two new Fox series this fall -- one comedy and one drama -- as Fox follows the other shows in moving cautiously after the 100-day writers strike.

Fox again gets the jump on other networks by starting the season 3 weeks early, the week of August 25 with "Prison Break," "Bones" and "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?"

The new drama is "Fringe" (9 p.m. Tuesday) from J.J. Abrams ("Lost") about the FBI investigating a plane that lands in Boston with everyone dead on board. Joshua Jackson ("Dawson's Creek") stars as the son of a brilliant but institutionalized doctor (John Noble, "Lord of the Rings") who can solve the case.... in 22 episodes or more.

The only comedy is "Do Not Disturb" (9:30 p.m. Weds) with Jerry O'Connell ("Crossing Jordan), Niecy Nash ("Reno 911"), guest star Robert Wagner as wacky operators of "the hottest and hippest hotel" in NYC. It will air after "Til Death."

For midseason, Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") has created "Dollhouse," about people (including Eliza Dushku, "Buffy," "Tru Calling") are members of "a highly illegal and underground group who had had their personalities wiped clean to they can be imprinted with any number of new personas." It will air at 8 p.m. Mondays in January, before "24."

"The Moment of Truth," (such schlock) "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," "Don't Forget The Lyrics" and "Til Death" will be back. But not Kelsey Grammer's "Back to You," or "Unhitched," "K-Ville," "Nashville," "The Return of Jezebel Jones" or "Search For The Next Great Rock Band."

Here's a link to the Fox release:
