Fox TV's Fall Schedule 2010

The Fox Fall TV Schedule has few surprises.

A couple of new series hopefuls are the comedy entries, "Running Wilde" and "Raising Hope."  I don't know much about the latter, described as a single-camera family comedy from the producers of "My Name is Earl," but it's the lead-in to "Running Wilde," which means they're banking on it.  "Wilde" sounds better.  It's from the "Arrested Development" folks and stars Keri Russell ("Felicity") and Will Arnett ("30 Rock") as two childhood sweethearts finding their way back to each other. 

I would be excited about "The Good Guys," which stars one of my favorites, Bradley Whitford ("The West Wing"), had I not been watching the ridiculous-looking previews.  This is an action comedy with Matt Nix of "Burn Notice."  They are an old- and new-school cop who solve crimes from "irreverent angles employing non-linear storytelling."  Huh?  I guess you have to watch to understand.

The final new entry for Fox is "Lonestar," a soap set against the backdrop of big Texas oil.  "Dallas" for the new millennium?  David Keith and Jon Voight star.  I doubt the two of them combined will be as funny as Larry Hagman.

Rounding out the schedule for Fox are "House" on Mondays, followed by "Lone Star."  Tuesdays start with "Glee" and then the two new sitcoms.  Wednesdays feature the returning "Lie to Me" and "Hell's Kitchen."  "Bones" and "Fringe" return on Thursdays; Fridays are "Human Target" and "the Good Guys."

Saturdays present "Cops" and "America's Most Wanted," while there are animated features on Sundays: "The Simpsons," "The Cleveland Show," "Family Guy" and "American Dad."
