CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- With its growing commitments to "American Idol" and reality series in general, FOX will have a backlog of fresh episodes of both "Futurama" and "Cedric the Entertainer Presents" for the summer. The news was just one item in a host of announcements this week by the network concerning May sweeps and beyond:

-- "Futurama" will be pre-empted for the entire May sweeps period (April 24 - May 21) as at least six episodes of the animated comedy will be left in the can come June.

-- "Cedric the Entertainer Presents" will air fresh installments on April 30 and May 7 in its current Wednesday, 9:30/8:30c time slot with the four remaining episodes set to air in June. Current time slot holder "Wanda at Large" will wrap its season on April 23.

-- "That '70s Show" and "The Bernie Mac Show" will close their respective seasons on May 14 with the latter airing at a special time - 9:30/8:30c - to make room for a one-hour edition of "American Idol" that night.
