Fox Overhauls Spring Line-Up


Fox has overhauled its spring lineup as new episodes of “House,” “Bones,” “‘Til Death” and “Back to You” will join its schedule in April.

To make room for said additions, newcomer “Canterbury’s Law” will now premiere Monday, March 10 at 8:00/7:00c leading into the time period premiere of “New Amsterdam” at 9:00/8:00c. The former will wrap its run on April 7 while “Amsterdam” will close up shop on April 14.

Then on Monday, April 14 at 8:00/7:00c look for the first of six original episodes of “Bones.” The series will then be joined by the first of four “House” originals at 9:00/8:00c starting April 28. Both series will conclude their seasons on May 19.

Meanwhile, “‘Til Death” and “Back to You” will return with the first of five new episodes on Wednesday, April 16 at 8:00/7:00c and 8:30/7:30c, respectively. The pair will take over for “The Moment of Truth,” which will wrap its spring run on April 2 before returning on Thursday, June 12.

Over on Thursdays, “Don’t Forget the Lyrics” will air its season finale on May 8 while “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” will close its season with a two-hour finale on May 15.

And finally, “24,” as previously announced, is not anticipated to return until January 2009.
