Last season’s biggest hit, Joe Millionaire, returns to Fox Monday,
Oct. 20, with all-new episodes running Mondays and Tuesdays starting Monday,
The show will conclude in a two-hour finale during November sweeps Monday,
The Tuesday runs of Joe Millionaire replace American Juniors,
which had been slated to fill the spot but was dropped when its producers,
FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment, decided that they didn’t have time to
produce another version of the show so quickly.

Millionaire will give a boost to its new drama, Skin, and to critical
hit 24 at 9 p.m. on both nights.
More than 46 million viewers watched the finale of Joe Millionaire
