Publish date:

Fox will launch at least 10 new shows next season, including four new dramas and three new sitcoms next fall and a new drama and two new "alternative series" next winter.

Here's the lineup.

Monday is David Kelley night, with the returning Boston Public
at 8 p.m., followed by the new Girls Club, about San Francisco
lawyers.

Tuesday features all returning shows: That 70s Show at 8 p.m.,
Grounded for Life at 8:30 p.m. and 24 at 9 p.m.

Wednesday kicks off with the returning Bernie Mac at 8 p.m., followed
by the new comedy/variety show, Cedric the Entertainer Presents, at 8:30
p.m. A new crime drama, Fast Lane, debuts at 9 p.m.

Thursday

will have movies and specials in the
fall and three new shows beginning sometime in the winter.

At 8 p.m., talent show 30 Secondsto Fame will debut. At 8:30 p.m., it's Meet the Marks, from Vin
DiBona of Funniest Home Videos fame.

The new show is sort of a cross
between a sitcom and Candid Camera. It's set in a house with a troupe of
improv actors. The house is rigged with hidden cameras. Each week features two
different stories where a 'guest star' (the mark) is brought in from the outside
who doesn't know they're part of a TV show.

Meet the Marks will be followed by the drama Septuplets, about a family with septuplets.

On Fridays , its a brand-new night of drama with science-fiction series Firefly
at 8 p.m., followed by John Doe, about a savant who knows everything but
his name.

Cops and America's Most Wanted return to Saturday (as does Mad
TV
in late-night).

Sunday starts with Futurama at 7 p.m., followed by new 60s-era comedy
Oliver Beene.

At 8 p.m., The Simpsons returns, followed by King
of the Hill
, Malcolm in the Middle and the new comedy about the
exceedingly mediocre clan known as The Grubbs.

Three midseason shows are also in the hopper: dramas Keen Eddie
and Time Tunnel and comedy The Pitts.
