After airing original scripted programming in the summer for the past few years, Fox is throwing in the towel this year with a lineup featuring fresh reality fare and scripted reruns. There will be no new shows introduced this summer, with the untitled Jamie Foxx/Affion Crockett sketch comedy, previously scheduled to premiere June 9, pulled indefinitely. (The series already suffered a setback when its preview after American Idol was canceled.) Fox’s original summer slate will consist of the return of So You Think You Can Dance, Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef. Possibly promising news for 2 scripted series on the bubble, both with ties to Shawn Ryan, The Chicago Code and Lie To Me, both of which are scheduled to air reruns during the summer. Fringe, which doesn’t repeat well, is not on the schedule. Here is the detailed Fox summer schedule with premiere dates:
