Fox announced fall 2006-07 schedule

The FOX network has five new shows starting in the fall, with a new schedule in January that promises the return of 24.

In the meantime, Sunday remains the same, with the 7pm hour devoted to the overflow of Football. The Simpsons, American Dad, The Family Guy and The War at Home fill out the night.

Monday sees the return of Prison Break, followed by Vanished, a drama about an FBI team that begins to investigate the disappearance of a Senator's wife, but what looks like a simple missing persons case unfolds into a vast conspiracy with national security issues at stake. Gale Harold (Queer as Folk) stars.

Tuesday launches with the new drama, Standoff, about how a hostage negotiators balance work and their growing attraction to each other. Ron Livingston stars. House balances out the night.

Wednesday sees the return of Bones followed by the new drama Justice, about high-profile defense lawyers who work to get their wealthy and famous clients out of trouble. Victor Garber (Alias), Kerr Smith (Dawson's Creek) star.

Thursday starts with two new comedies, the first being 'Til Death, which stars Brad Garrett and Joley Fisher. The premise: A happy newlywed couple move in next to a husband and wife who have been married for a number of years and have quite a different view on the institution. Happy Hour is next and is about a small-town guy who moves to Chicago, has his heart broken and moves in with a modern day Dean Martin who vows to remake him.

Friday becomes reality night with Nanny 911 and Trading Spouses.

Saturday remains, as always, Cops and America’s Most Wanted.

Waiting in the wings: The Wedding Album, a drama about the most sought after wedding photographer in town who spends his life going from one ceremony to another, but who doesn’t expect him to walk down the aisle any time soon. The Winner is a comedy about a rich and successful 43-year-old man who looks back at the period 10 years earlier when he was still living with his parents and a beautiful woman inspired him to change his life.

FOX’s Canceled Shows: Arrested Development, The Bernie Mac Show, Free Ride, Head Cases, Killer Instinct, Kitchen Confidential, Malcolm in the Middle, Reunion, Stacked and That 70s Show.

Meanwhile, the January schedule will shape up like this (but, then, nothing is in ink, considering some fall shows will not make it to January).

Once football is over, look for the return of King of the Hill to fill out the 7:30 timeslot on Sunday.

Standoff will assume Prison Break’s Monday timeslot, as it will take a hiatus until March. 24 then returns at 9 with another no repeat season.

Tuesday see’s the return of American Idol. House retains its 9pm birth.

Wednesday will start with a relocated Justice followed by the American Idol result show and the return of The Loop.

Thursday remains the same. We’ll see.

Bones moves to Friday followed by the new show, The Wedding Album.

Saturday: Move along, nothing is changed here.
