As previously reported, Fox is shaking up its lineup after the conclusion of the baseball playoffs, and will make changes to its schedule on four different nights. The CW is also making some big changes by swapping their Sunday and Monday schedules.
To begin with Fox, the new moves include the launch of the network’s latest unscripted show, The Rich List, a quiz show hosted by English TV personality Eamonn Holmes that will air Wednesdays at 9, replacing the relocated Justice.
Fox will also flip its Tuesday night schedule, in which House returns to 9, pushing Standoff up to lead off the night.
Two rookie dramas will be on the move, as Justice shifts to Mondays at 9 out of Prison Break, while Vanished gets banished to Fridays at 8.
Fox also says that rookie comedies ‘Til Death and Happy Hour will return to the schedule on Thursday nights at 8, leading into The O.C., which returns November 2.
With the changes, Nanny 911 goes to the bench from its Friday at 9 timeslot.
