Fox Unveil Their Fall 2011-2012 Schedule

Following on from our previous story on the announcement of NBC’s 2011-2012 season, we have a look at the recently released 2011-2012 season for the Fox Network. Unlike NBC’s the key message from Fox’s schedule seems to be if ain’t broke don’t try to fix it, as save the move of House to 9pm on Mondays and Americas Most Wanted being shown every quarter (as a pose to being weekly), there have been very little changes to their schedule.

The main reason, as many guessed would be the case for House moving to a new slot was the inclusion in the schedule of Fox’s new headline show, Terra Nova and considering the amount of money spent on it this Steven Speilberg project (The first episode alone has a budget of $16 million) it is no suprise that Fox are making it a high priority. What was a surprise during the Fox upfront presentations was that for a second time there no footage presented instead only a video of Peter Chernin and Steven Spielberg holding up and talking through giant storyboards and pictures of Dinosaurs. It is no wonder that amongst media buyers the show has garnered the nickname, “Terra No-va”, which is Spanish for “no go”. However despite this failure, Fox seem comfortable that Terra Nova will meet the needed production deadlines and be ready to go this fall.

So now all that has been said have a look below to see what Fox’s schedule will look like this fall (Please note as before new shows are CAPS):
