FOX to Move 'Boston,' 'Wanda' to Fridays
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) - FOX is expected to move "Boston Public" and "Wanda at Large" to Friday nights when the network presents its fall 2003 schedule tomorrow morning. The moves are part of an aggressive schedule that will likely see changes to almost every night on its lineup.

Here's a rundown of the latest developments:

-- Mondays are set to see "Joe Millionaire 2" slide to 8:00/7:00c as a lead-in to Jerry Bruckheimer's latest drama "Skin," which involves the adult film industry.

-- Wednesdays have "That '70s Show" remaining at 8:00/7:00c followed by newcomer "A Minute With Stan Hooper," starring Norm Macdonald as a TV commentator who moves to a small town. "The Bernie Mac Show" will also stay put at 9:00/8:00c followed by the return of "Cedric the Entertainer Presents."

-- Thursdays see two new dramas left to the wolves with the Peter Gallagher-ensemble "The O.C." at 8:00/7:00c and the Eliza Dushku-led "True Calling" at 9:00/8:00c.

-- Fridays have FOX ditching both "Fastlane" and "John Doe" in favor of the newly relocated "Wanda at Large" at 8:00/7:00c and "Boston Public" at 9:00/8:00c. Sandwiched between the two is Luis Guzman's self-titled comedy.

-- Sundays are looking to have "King of the Hill," "The Simpsons" and "Malcolm in the Middle" stay in the current slots. Newcomers are set to fill the remaining half-hours with "Banzai," "The Ortegas" and "Arrested Development" at the 7:00/6:00c, 8:30/7:30c and 9:30/8:30c marks respectively.

-- Tuesdays and Saturdays are expected to remain intact with "24," "Cops" and "America's Most Wanted" all staying put. Summer series "American Juniors" is looking to hold up the Tuesday, 8:00/7:00c slot until its parent series, "American Idol," returns in January.

-- As for early pickup "Wonder Falls," it's unclear when or where the series will land on the schedule. FOX had planned an August bow for the series but now it appears headed for midseason. Also at midseason look for family drama "Still Life" to pop up on the schedule as well as a second season of "Oliver Beene."

FOX presents its official schedule tomorrow.
