THE NEXT GREAT EVENTS ARE AUGUST 30-SEPTEMBER 12 ON FOX

PREMIERES, SPECIAL EPISODES AND THEATRICALS LIGHT UP TWO BIG WEEKS AFTER THE OLYMPICS THE COMPLEX: MALIBU (Aug. 30), RENOVATE MY FAMILY (Sept. 1) And THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP (Sept. 7) Will Debut Special Aug. 31 Episode of TRADING SPOUSES Features Dads Sept. 8 Premieres of New Wednesday Lineup Include THAT '70s SHOW, THE BERNIE MAC SHOW, QUINTUPLETS and METHOD & RED COPS and AMERICA'S MOST WANTED Start New Seasons Sept. 11

After the Closing Ceremonies, the torch is passed and FOX fires up its schedule with two weeks of powerhouse events and medal-worthy shows, including a two-hour preview of THE COMPLEX: MALIBU; a two-hour preview and the series premiere of RENOVATE MY FAMILY; a special "Meet Your New Daddy" episode of FOX's newest hit, TRADING SPOUSES; the highly anticipated premiere of THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP; and an all-new Wednesday night of comedy featuring the season premieres of THAT '70s SHOW and THE BERNIE MAC SHOW and fall-premiere episodes of QUINTUPLETS and METHOD & RED.

The big events continue with blockbuster movies - special encore broadcasts of BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE, THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK 2 and DEUCE BIGALOW: MALE GIGOLO - plus the season premieres of COPS and AMERICA'S MOST WANTED and a special night of TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR and WORLD'S CRAZIEST VIDEOS, all airing Aug. 30-Sept. 12 on FOX.

THE COMPLEX: MALIBU, inspired by Australia's smash-hit show, "The Block," moves eight real-life couples into four units of a cliffside complex in Southern California's coastal enclave of the rich and famous, and puts their construction, interior design and, most importantly, their relationship skills to the test with a large cash prize on the line. The couples take on the master bedroom and the first couple is kicked off on the two-hour preview/premiere of THE COMPLEX: MALIBU Monday, Aug. 30 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

THE COMPLEX: MALIBU will have its time-period premiere four days later with a new one-hour episode on Friday, Sept. 3 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

Moms have been in the spotlight thus far on TRADING SPOUSES, but for the first time on the series, two dads will switch places on TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW DADDY. Mr. Cooke from Georgia and Mr. Levine from New York City try out the ultimate life change - switching their families to take over a clan from another walk of life. Parts 1 and 2 of this special episode air back-to-back on Tuesday, Aug. 31. In Part 1 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the dads and families adjust to the new arrangements, and in Part 2 (9:00-10:00 ET/PT), the families find out how they must spend their $50,000 prize.

On Wednesday, Sept. 1, (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), FOX presents a two-hour preview/premiere of RENOVATE MY FAMILY. Hosted by best-selling author Jay McGraw, son of Dr. Phil McGraw, RENOVATE MY FAMILY is a life-improvement program that visits families who have encountered challenges along the way - be they weight issues, physical disabilities or a house that is crumbling - and gets them back on track so they can forge ahead toward their goals.

In the Sept. 1 preview, the Biggins family, previously seen on TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY, allow a full-force makeover team and construction crew to completely demolish their house from foundation to rooftop. Al-Mela will no longer have to cook next to the washing machine, while Anthon, Chrishara, Zikea and little Omar all have their lifestyles examined and improved. Another family will be renovated in the time period premiere of RENOVATE MY FAMILY Monday, Sept. 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the fall premiere of the hit Hawaii drama NORTH SHORE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

Movie fans are in for a treat when FOX presents the laugh-out-loud comedy BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE Thursday, Sept. 2 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Street-smart FBI agent and master of disguise Malcolm Turner (Martin Lawrence) has his hands full when he is sent to Georgia to protect a beautiful single mother, Sherry (Nia Long), and her son from an escaped convict. In order to remain incognito, he impersonates a soul food-cooking, baby-delivering, crass Southern granny known as Big Momma (Ella Mitchell), who happens to be out of town. Now he must find a way to catch the con and get the girl before the real Big Momma comes home. Cedric The Entertainer also appears as the Reverend.

On Sunday, Sept. 5 (7:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), FOX brings back the blockbuster science-fiction adventure, THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK 2, starring Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore and Vince Vaughn. In this hit sequel, a second island of John Hammond's Jurassic Park experiment is revealed when Ian Malcolm (Goldblum) joins his girlfriend (Moore) in researching dinosaurs' behavior in their so-called "natural" environment. When Hammond's nephew and a team of big game hunters interrupt the expedition with self-fulfilling ambitions, the adventure becomes a fight for survival.

The opening bell rings for THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP with the highly anticipated series premiere Tuesday, Sept. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Twelve boxers chosen from thousands across the country will lay it all on the line, both in and out of the ring, in the hope of winning every fighter's ultimate dream - a professional contract with Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions and a title fight within the World Boxing Organization (WBO). In the premiere episode, these hungry, young fighters endure a physical challenge, train one-on-one with De La Hoya and move into their new living arrangements. Finally, two fighters will face off in an elimination bout that sends one of them home and the victor one step closer to becoming THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP.

Original episodes of THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP will air on four consecutive Tuesdays, Sept. 7, 14, 21 and 28 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and weekly encores begin Friday, Sept. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Original episodes of THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP will move to Fridays after Major League Baseball returns to FOX primetime.

Comedy grabs the spotlight Wednesday, Sept. 8 with an all-new lineup of hit FOX shows.

As THAT '70s SHOW begins its seventh season, Eric decides he's going to sell Donna's engagement ring so he can afford to take a year off and hang out. But when he learns Donna threw the ring off the water tower, the gang tries to find it and the results are disastrous. Brook Shields and Tanya Roberts guest-star on the "Time Is On My Side" episode Wednesday, Sept. 8 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT).

On the fall premiere of QUINTUPLETS, the quints' longtime friend Alayna returns from Africa for a visit. The reaction is complicated as Paige decides to celebrate with a slumber party, Alayna's return stirs up Parker's feelings for her, and Alayna admits she has feelings for Pearce. Meanwhile, Patton tries to spy on the slumber party and Bob and Carol try for some time alone on "The Sixth Quint" Wednesday, Sept. 8 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT).

On THE BERNIE MAC SHOW season premiere, Bernie becomes suspicious of Vanessa when he overhears her talking with her friend about smoking. With help from guest-star Snoop Dogg as the local spy shop proprietor, he installs security cameras in every room to monitor everyone's activities. But when his cameras catch the kids and Wanda making fun of him, Bernie can't handle the truth on the "Big Brother" episode Wednesday, Sept. 8 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

The fall premiere of METHOD & RED finds a series of burglaries plaguing Nottingshire Estates. Nancy forms a neighborhood watch and is paired with Meth on patrol duty; Red's addiction to video games causes his eyesight to weaken; and Lil' Bit and Dupree invite the circus to Meth & Red's crib on the "Neighborhood Watch" episode Wednesday, Sept. 8 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).

FOX stays outrageous and crazy on Thursday, Sept. 9, with four never-before-seen episodes of the uproarious clip shows TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT and 9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and WORLD'S CRAZIEST VIDEOS (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT and 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). Hosted by Fox Sports Net's Lisa Dergan, TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR reveals what can happen when people press the "record" button on their video cameras and capture the most shocking and unbelievable moments for posterity. On WORLD'S CRAZIEST VIDEOS, comedian/host Brian Unger presents funny flubs and blunders from TV shows, news broadcasts and other hilarious outtakes from around the world.

FOX's veteran lineup of COPS and AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK continues to dominate Saturday primetime. The pioneering shows that ignited the reality phenomenon have their season premieres on Saturday, Sept. 11. COPS begins its 17th season with a glimpse of the lighter moments encountered during police work (8:00-8:30 PM) and an up-close look at drug busts and domestic disputes (8:30-9:00 PM). And AMERICA'S MOST WANTED launches its 18th season in hot pursuit of Hells Angels in Mesa, AZ, Saturday, Sept. 11 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

On Sept. 12, viewers will enter the hilarious world of Deuce Bigalow (Rob Schneider), a down-on-his-luck aquarium cleaner who lands a job fish-sitting for a professional gigolo, Antoine Laconte (Oded Fehr). As Deuce gets comfortable at Antoine's place, he sets off a chain of events that virtually destroys the apartment, including Antoine's $6,000 custom-made aquarium. Needing money to pay for the damages, Deuce launches his new career as a gigolo, taking on Antoine's unusual mix of female clients - and falling in love with one of them, Kate (Arija Bareikis) the blind date. Meanwhile, sleazy detective Chuck Fowler (William Forsythe) is hot on Deuce's trail in DEUCE BIGALOW: MALE GIGOLO Sunday, Sept. 12 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
