Fox Hears 'Strike' and Makes The Call: '24,' You're Out!

Friday nights will become a melange of original dramas and reruns: In January, reruns of "Bones" and "House." In February, "Bones" will be joined by "New Amsterdam." In March, "New Amsterdam" will be joined by " 'Til Death" -- presumably reruns -- and the debut of Amy Sherman-Palladino's comedy "The Return of Jezebel James." In April, " 'Til Death" and "The Return of Jezebel James" will be joined by Julianna Margulies's new lawyer drama, "Canterbury's Law."

Saturdays, "Cops" and "America's Most Wanted" stay put. Sundays, "various comedy encores" will air at 7, followed by the network's animated sitcom slate.

And, despite "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane's chest-thumping comments to Variety that this Sunday's show is the last fully produced episode in the can and that he has no intention of stepping into the studio to record the voices on additional episodes and that Fox could go ahead and use other producers to wrap things up on additional episodes but won't because "it would be unwise . . . because I would be angry," Fox says it has enough "Family Guy" episodes to get it through this season.
