Fox Sets New Dates for Summer


Season three of “Hell’s Kitchen,” the juicy competition where a kitchen-full of wannabe restaurateurs try to impress mercurial master chef Gordon Ramsay and win a shot at culinary stardom, now premieres on Fox’s summer menu Monday, June 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), instead of the previously announced June 25.

Leading into “Hell’s Kitchen” on Monday nights will be the weekly Film Premiere episodes of the new movie-making competition “On the Lot” from Mark Burnett and Steven Spielberg. “On the Lot’s” special two-night series premiere airs Tuesday, May 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) following “American Idol” and Thursday, May 24 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) following the season premiere of “So You Think You Can Dance.” After a special two-hour episode on Monday, May 28 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the “On the Lot” Film Premiere show will begin airing in its regular time period Monday, June 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on Fox an hour earlier than previously announced.

Following the weekly “On the Lot” Box Office results show, which will premiere in its regular time period Tuesday, June 5 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), Fox summer Tuesdays will continue with freshman comedy “‘Til Death,” making its time period premiere Tuesday, June 5 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), and the award-winning hit drama “House” (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

“Standoff,” the suspenseful drama about two FBI crisis negotiators played by Ron Livingston and Rosemarie DeWitt who are paired both professionally and romantically, returns to the FOX schedule this summer. All-new episodes will air Fridays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) after FOX’s popular drama “Bones”(8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), starting June 8.
