FOX presents an iron-clad case on Mondays during November Sweeps. The proceedings include all-new episodes of PRISON BREAK, culminating in the climactic Fall Finale on Monday, Nov. 27, and three all-new cases on the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced legal drama, JUSTICE, one of which features Jane Seymour in a guest-starring turn.

The manhunt continues and the body count rises this November on PRISON BREAK. Michael is determined to reunite with Sarah, while Mahone and Kellerman are determined to keep them apart � permanently � in the "Rendezvous" episode airing Monday, Nov. 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). T-Bag must make the ultimate sacrifice to get his hand on Westmoreland's millions, while Lincoln says goodbye to another loved one in the "Bolshoi Booze" episode Monday, Nov. 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). In "Disconnect" (Monday, Nov. 20, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Bellick makes a stunning confession, C-Note's journey has an arresting development and Michael and Lincoln make their final flight for the border � but will Mahone ground their plans? And on Monday, Nov. 27 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Bellick gets a taste of his own medicine, T-Bag has an unexpected helping hand in getting revenge and alliances are turned upside-down once again.

From evading the authorities to meting out JUSTICE, the drama continues on FOX Monday this November Sweeps, especially for the clients of TNT&G. In the first of three all-new installments, Tom rallies the TNT&G lawyers to represent their building's parking attendant after his wife is found shot to death � with only the husband's fingerprints on the gun in the "Shotgun" episode airing Monday, Nov. 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

The following week, Monday, Nov. 13 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), TNT&G's latest case becomes a media feeding frenzy after a dot-com billionaire's wife disappears from an anchored yacht and is subsequently found dead in the "Shark Week" episode.

Jane Seymour guest-stars as Ron's former lover whom the firm defends in the "Filicide" episode of JUSTICE Monday, Nov. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Accused of murdering her son, she insists it was an act of self-defense.


FOX Tuesdays during November Sweeps feature another double dose of all-new drama, including four tense ordeals for the crisis negotiators of STANDOFF, and four more baffling medical mysteries that only HOUSE and his team can solve. November also boasts the continuation of David Morse's multi-episode arc, when his Detective Tritter squares off against the doctors of HOUSE.

In STANDOFF's first November Sweeps outing, when a mysterious sniper kills a string of random people, CNU is determined to stop the culprit. After they catch a potential perp and announce their success, a police captain is shot, making their prime suspect a copycat. With the real sniper on the loose, negotiations aren't enough, and Matt and Emily must work with Frank and Duff to catch the killer before he hurts one of them in the "One Shot Stop" episode Tuesday, Nov. 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

Free speech comes with a price in "Man of Steele," the Tuesday, Nov. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) installment of STANDOFF. After a surrogate mother scams a desperate husband out of $50,000, the distraught man takes matters into his own hands and takes the newborn child and babysitter hostage. The resulting high-speed chase ends at the scam artist's home, where, in an attempt to defend his actions, the man calls shock-jock radio personality Avery Steele's show and his plight goes live on the air. Matt and Emily must enlist Steele's help to negotiate the crisis over the airwaves, but this "power to the people" jock is anything but cooperative.

In another all-new Sweeps episode of STANDOFF, "Accidental Negotiator" Tuesday, Nov. 21 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), bank robbers refuse to communicate with Matt and Emily, and a third party, Angela, is brought in to help with the negotiations. But when Angela takes matters into her own hands and accepts the robbers' demands without consulting CNU, the situation escalates, and Matt and Emily must deal with more than just the thieves to end the standoff.

Matt and Emily save a young woman from a hostage situation in the "Heroine" episode of STANDOFF Tuesday, Nov. 28 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), but their work isn't done, as the woman becomes prey to a stalker. When Emily discovers the woman's feelings for Matt, she questions her case. As the situation escalates, it becomes clear that the woman is holding secrets, but having saved her once, Matt takes it upon himself to save her again.

With a month of all-new medical mysteries and guest star David Morse, HOUSE opens November Sweeps in a big way when a 600-pound man, George Hagel (guest star Pruitt Taylor Vince), is admitted to the hospital after he is found in his apartment in a coma. George believes his problems are unrelated to his weight and wants the team to come up with another explanation, but his size makes testing difficult. It's not until House has a physical altercation with his patient that the case becomes clear. Meanwhile, after House is arrested, Officer Michael Tritter (guest star Morse) puts the squeeze on the good doctor, searching his home for evidence of drug abuse and questioning Wilson about House's relationship with Vicodin in the "Que Sera Sera" episode airing Tuesday, Nov. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

The next all-new November Sweeps HOUSE call, "Son of Coma Guy" (Tuesday, Nov. 14, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), features guest star John Larroquette as Gabe, a man who has been in a coma for 10 years. Noticing something "off" about Gabe's visiting son, Kyle, House conducts a mini-experiment that leaves the boy unconscious. When symptoms point to a possible genetic condition, House and his team must glean a family history from Kyle's only living relative � his comatose father. Meanwhile, Wilson confronts House about stealing his prescription pad, and Tritter (guest star Morse) questions Cameron, Foreman and Chase, dividing the team and revealing where their individual loyalties lie.

Patrick Fugit ("Almost Famous") guest-stars in the Tuesday, Nov. 21 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) outing of HOUSE, titled "Whac-A-Mole," as Princeton Plainsboro's newest patient and heart attack victim, 18-year-old Jack. Barely an adult himself, Jack has been the parent to his younger brother and sister since their parents died. After a brief perusal of Jack's file, House thinks he's got the diagnosis, seals it in an envelope and turns the process into a game, challenging Cameron, Foreman and Chase to figure it out on their own. When Jack is given an option that would lead to a possible reprieve from his worsening illness, he's faced with a decision that could break up his little family forever. Meanwhile, in an attempt to extract a confession, Tritter (guest star Morse) makes it almost impossible for Wilson to practice medicine, driving a friendship-ruining wedge between House and Wilson.

In "Finding Judas" (Tuesday, Nov. 28, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the final November episode of HOUSE, the team takes on the case of a young girl admitted with pancreatitis. When her divorced parents won't agree on how to proceed with her treatment, House takes the parents to court to have a judge make the decision for them. Meanwhile, Detective Tritter's (guest star Morse) investigation intensifies after he offers Foreman a deal to come clean about House's drug use.


It's a whole new game on FOX Wednesdays during November Sweeps when BONES unearths three all-new episodes, the exciting quiz show THE RICH LIST continues and FOX's annual three-night Thanksgiving movie marathon gets started with the World Broadcast Premiere of CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN.

On BONES on Wednesday, Nov. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the skeletal remains of a federal prosecutor who disappeared five years earlier are discovered in the desert outside Las Vegas. Brennan and Booth suspect his death is tied to the mob, and then vultures lead them to the more recent remains of a young woman, just a few yards away, whose injuries point to abuse. Following an anonymous lead into the world of gambling and underground ultimate fighting, Booth and Brennan go undercover as Vegas high-rollers, and Booth takes his turn in the ring, risking his life in a desperate effort to uncover the mystery of "The Woman in the Sand."

The following week, on Wednesday, Nov. 15 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), when the bodies of twin teenage boys kidnapped five years earlier are found in Pennsylvania, Booth and Brennan find themselves on the trail of The Grave Digger, a notorious serial killer whose M.O. is to kidnap, bury his victims alive and make a single, exorbitant ransom request. If the money is not paid in the specified period of time, there is no further communication and the victims are left to die. During the investigation, Brennan and her scientist colleague Dr. Hodgins become The Grave Digger's latest victims, forced to try to solve their own kidnapping from an underground grave in the "Aliens in a Spaceship" episode.

"The Headless Witch in the Woods," the final Sweeps installment of BONES airing Wednesday, Nov. 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), finds Brennan and Booth investigating the remains of a headless body discovered in the DC-area woods. The legend of a woman who lived in the forest and whom many thought to be a witch runs rampant through the case. A videotape found with the bones contains frightening images of what went on the night the mystery person was killed, and the team try to keep their heads about them as more details bring a decidedly creepy pall over the investigation. Meanwhile, Hodgins tries to comfort a terrified Angela in hopes of inching closer to her.

Two can play this game when FOX unveils three all-new installments of THE RICH LIST Wednesdays, Nov. 8, 15 and 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Hosted by well-known British TV personality Eamonn Holmes, the exciting new quiz show teams two total strangers and asks them to use knowledge and strategy to complete lists. Contestants bid upwards against each other while predicting how many answers on a particular subject they will be able to list. If a team fails to list as many answers as they predicted, the other team wins the round. The winners of the best of three lists move on to play a final round of list-making where increasing amounts of money are up for grabs; however, make a single mistake and they lose it all. But it doesn't end there on THE RICH LIST � if you keep winning, you keep playing. The champions return to face a new set of opponents and try to win even more money in a potentially endless number of games.

FOX takes you from THE RICH LIST to CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, when the network's annual cinematic feast begins with the first title in its three-night Thanksgiving movie marathon on Wednesday, Nov. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT): the World Broadcast Premiere of CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN starring Steve Martin. When Tom Baker (Martin) gets his dream job of coaching his alma mater's football team, he uproots his family of 12 from small-town Illinois to the big city. Meanwhile, Tom's wife, Kate (Bonnie Hunt), achieves her own dream of having her book published. While Kate is away promoting the book, Tom has a hard time balancing family life with coaching his football team, and the happy family starts falling apart in CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN.


FOX Thursday in November is a place for spinning webs, from the hilariously complicated hijinks on new comedies 'TIL DEATH and HAPPY HOUR, to the romantic, dramatic/comedic intrigue of THE O.C., to Peter Parker's crime-fighting stickum on the World Broadcast Premiere of SPIDER-MAN 2.

Starring Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher, 'TIL DEATH leads off Thursday nights in November with three all-new episodes. On Thursday, Nov. 2 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), when Eddie tells Joy that he's practicing with his band, he feels he has to lie to her, but Joy already knows what Eddie is actually doing in "The Garage Band" episode.

The following week, Thursday, Nov. 9 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), things heat up again in "The Toaster" episode of 'TIL DEATH. Joy attempts to persuade Eddie that unplugging the toaster saves electricity, but Eddie is convinced that his wife is mistaken. Stubbornly, they bicker until Eddie decides to take it to the next level and repeatedly goes out of his way to prove Joy wrong. The third all-new Sweeps episode of 'TIL DEATH airs Thursday, Nov. 16 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

HAPPY HOUR uncorks three all-new episodes for November Sweeps, and first up is the "The Ring and I" episode airing Thursday, Nov. 2 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT). When Larry discovers that Henry still has the engagement ring he intended to give his ex-girlfriend Heather before she broke up with him, he urges Henry to sell the bauble online and buy a wine refrigerator. But romantic Henry, still holding out hope that Heather is his destiny, wants to hang onto the ring. Meanwhile, Amanda borrows the diamond to impress a guy she used to date, and the gang finds out that it was Tina who popped the question to Brad � and she has yet to receive an engagement ring for her trouble.

The following week on the "Crazy Girls" episode of HAPPY HOUR (Thursday, Nov. 9, 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), Henry starts to date Shauna, a barista at the local coffee shop whom Larry dated and dumped. Despite Larry's desperate warnings, Henry still pursues her. After Shauna's boundary issues surface, Henry, like Larry before him, runs out of options for getting rid of her, and it's Tina who comes to the rescue. Meanwhile, Amanda meets up with an old college friend who is determined to get her married off � even if it means signing her up for the online dating service "last-shot-at-love.com."

"Arrested Development's" Jessica Walter guest-stars in "Thanksgiving," the final November Sweeps round of HAPPY HOUR (Thursday, Nov. 16, 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT). Tina is hosting Thanksgiving dinner, and Brad invites Larry, Henry and Amanda to join them, since Tina's mother Nanette (guest star Walter) and sister Alicia (guest star Laura Bell Bundy) are in town for the holiday. Despite trying, Brad can't seem to make a good impression on Nanette, especially after Henry has to fend off Nanette's advances. Meanwhile, Larry mistakenly calls Alicia "Tina" during a make-out session, and Amanda gets very defensive about her femininity.

Premiering Thursday, Nov. 2 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Season Four of THE O.C. hits the ground running with the cult soap's trademark mix of heart, humor, drama, action and romance. Willa Holland, as Kaitlin Cooper, and Autumn Reeser, as Taylor Townsend, become series regulars this season, and Chris Pratt ("Everwood") guest-stars in a multi-episode arc.

The fourth season premiere finds the gang adjusting to life without Marissa Cooper. Summer is attending Brown University in Rhode Island, where she has reinvented herself as a left-leaning, tree-hugging activist under the sway of environmentalist Che (guest star Pratt). Ryan has moved out of the Cohen house and is dealing with Marissa's death in the only way he knows how. When he misses a special dinner at the Cohens', Seth finds him on the wrong side of the tracks and calls Summer for help. Meanwhile, Julie Cooper will do anything � even yard work � to avoid dealing with Marissa's death; Kaitlin earns a new pair of boots from Dr. Roberts in true Cooper fashion; and Taylor hides out in the diner so no one will know she's not in Paris in "The Avengers" episode of THE O.C.

The following week, Thursday, Nov. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Ryan leaves Orange County to put an end to his turmoil, but comes up empty on his search. Meanwhile, Seth acts like a jackass and finds some new friends in Mexico (including guest star Steve-O) who help him find what he's looking for. Kaitlin and Julie are forced by Dean Torres (guest star Tia Carrere) to work together on Harbor's clothing drive, and Julie is ostracized by the Cohens when they discover what she has been up to. And when Taylor drops in on Summer unannounced, the truth comes out as Summer continues to separate herself from everything Orange County in "The Gringos" episode.

A week later (Thursday, Nov. 16, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), it's Thanksgiving morning at the Cohen house, and the family is still dealing with what happened in Mexico. As Summer packs to be with her family and Seth for the holiday, she wonders if she can deal with Newport. Meanwhile, Julie can't deal with Kaitlin or Dr. Roberts and finds herself alone for most of Thanksgiving in "The Cold Turkey" episode of THE O.C.

On Turkey Day itself (Thursday, Nov. 23, 8:00-10:30 PM ET/PT), FOX serves up the main course of its Thanksgiving movie marathon, with the World Broadcast Premiere of the blockbuster SPIDER-MAN 2. Tobey Maguire returns as mild-mannered Peter Parker, who is struggling with the delicate balance of his dual roles as college student and superhuman crime-fighter. Peter's life becomes even more complicated when he confronts a new nemesis, the brilliant Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina), who has been reincarnated as the maniacal and multi-tentacled "Doc Ock." When Dock Ock kidnaps Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst), Spider-Man must swing back into action and the adventure reaches new heights of excitement in SPIDER-MAN 2.

After Chris is approached by an Army recruiter, Brian goes to the headquarters to give him a piece of his mind, but with Stewie tagging along, they both end up in boot camp. The two make it through basic training with no help from Sergeant Angryman (guest voice Gossett) and end up in Iraq, where they try everything possible to get an honorable discharge. Meanwhile, back at home base, Chris joins Joey's (guest voice Culkin) Goth rock band and releases the hit track "Evil, Evil Monkey" on the "Saving Private Brian" episode of FAMILY GUY Sunday, Nov. 5 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT).

Drew Barrymore guest-voices her recurring role in the following week's all-new Sweeps installment of FAMILY GUY, "Whistle While Your Wife Works" (Sunday, Nov. 12, 9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT). When Peter hurts his hand, Lois goes to the brewery and helps him play catch-up. Meanwhile, when Stewie discovers that Brian is dating a very attractive but intellectually challenged girl named Jillian (guest voice Barrymore), he tries to convince Brian to break up with her, but Brian can't close the deal because she is so hot.

When Lois discovers that Chris has some bad information about sex, she volunteers to teach a sex-ed class at the high school in the "Prick Up Your Ears" episode of FAMILY GUY Sunday, Nov. 19 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT). After Lois

upsets the other parents with her honest approach, Principal Shepherd (guest voice Gary Cole) is forced to replace her with Reverend Jerry Kirkwood (guest voice David Cross). Meanwhile, Meg and her new guy take an abstinence pledge, but still manage to find a loophole. And a terrified Stewie sets a series of traps for the Tooth Fairy, hell-bent on destroying him.

Drew Barrymore returns as Brian's hot but dumb girlfriend Jillian in the FAMILY GUY episode "Chick Cancer" Sunday, Nov. 26 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT). Stewie ties the knot with his old friend and fading child actress Olivia, but their relationship quickly turns into a traditional marriage filled with resentment and bickering, which comes to an ugly head when they join Brian and Jillian on a double date. Meanwhile, Lois introduces Peter to chick flicks, and he decides to make his own movie based on the plots of every girly movie ever made.

In the first of four all-new episodes of THE WAR AT HOME, Dave and Vicky rush to the hospital when they find out Hillary's date overdosed, only to discover that the date was fake and that Hillary is really dating an older man (guest star Seth MacFarlane) who overused his prescription in the "I Wash My Hands of You" episode airing Sunday, Nov. 5 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).

The following week, in "Be Careful What You Ask For" on Sunday, Nov. 12 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), Dave accuses an incensed Hillary of cheating on her SAT after she gets a surprisingly high score. Meanwhile, Vicky and Dave meet a couple who may be interested in more than friendship, and Dave asks Larry to take a client's daughter out on a date, only to find out that she isn't an ideal match for him.

When Dave thinks he sees Hillary in a "Girls Gone Wild" video, he's beyond relieved to learn that he's mistaken � but completely freaked out at being turned on by girls his daughter's age. After he throws out all of his "visual aids," Dave looks to Vicky for inspiration, which was fine at first, but is now starting to tire her out. Meanwhile, an edited-for-television version of "Goodfellas" inspires Larry to replace swear words with the word "love," and Hillary prevents Mike from taking drugs by passing PMS medication off as mood enhancers in the "Love This" installment of THE WAR AT HOME (Sunday, Nov. 19, 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).

THE WAR AT HOME turns into the "Gaza Strip" in the Sunday, Nov. 26 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) episode, the final November Sweeps installment. Kenny's dad, Ahmed, pulls up the rose bushes between his home and Dave and Vicky's, believing the property is his after an assessment. When Dave and Vicky disagree, the two families declare war on each other, putting Larry and Kenny in the middle. Meanwhile, Hillary jokingly tells Dave to choose her next boyfriend since he's never happy with the boys she picks. Dave meets a boy who reminds him of himself, and against her better judgment, Hillary agrees to go out with him.

Additional FOX November schedule information will be announced soon.
