FOX’s schedule for the 2010-11 season will look a lot like the current season, primarily because the network doesn’t have too many holes to fill. There will be three new dramas and four sitcoms.
Glee will get the plum position behind the Super Bowl next year. That’s a very nice vote of confidence for the TV show but you have to wonder how many football fans are watching the musical series. It’s sure to help ratings though. While Glee is a success in many ways, it’s not a blockbuster hit that many believe it is.
The Idol results show will supposedly be shaved to a half hour. Before you get too excited, keep in mind that FOX has said that in the past. It was presumed that Simon Cowell’s new series would kick off this fall but it’s not on the schedule.
It’s interesting that Human Target’s been put on Friday nights, a little-watched night for television. It remains to be seen how many viewers the show will have to attract to be considered a success.
