Here are the highlights, night by night, for this May on FOX:

MONDAY

Mondays this May, hearts will be racing as lives hang in the balance on special encores of HOUSE, and then FOX takes viewers on the ultimate thrill ride with five relentless, all-new hours of 24, including the adrenaline-charged two-hour Day 6 finale.

In the first of three May Sweeps Monday HOUSE calls, "Distractions" airing Monday, April 30 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), a burn victim with unusual activity in his blood tests presents a difficult challenge to House and the team. The following week, Cameron Richardson guest-stars as a teenage supermodel with a heroin addiction and a startling secret unbeknownst even to her in an encore of "Skin Deep" Monday, May 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). And in an encore of "Clueless" Monday, May 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), House believes that heavy metal poisoning is responsible for a patient's breathing attack, and ends up confronting the man's wife to determine the origin of his deadly illness.

With only five hours left, Jack Bauer's sixth non-stop, pulse-pounding day comes to a climactic full circle in the last ticks of 24's "Day Six." May Sweeps sees all-new, suspense-filled hours (Mondays, April 30, May 7 and 14, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and the pressure-packed two-hour season finale (Monday, May 21, 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). As the clock approaches these final hours of a long and terrifying day underscored by a nuclear blast, the loss of thousands of innocent lives, a Presidential assassination attempt and the recovery of threatening nukes, Jack stops at nothing to get what he wants and to protect the country from an international incident that could change the world forever.

TUESDAY

This May, Tuesday nights are reserved for live musical performances, doctor-supervised HOUSE calls and moviemaking, with four all-new, live hours of AMERICAN IDOL, four all-new episodes of HOUSE and a special preview of the hotly anticipated Mark Burnett-Steven Spielberg moviemaking competition series ON THE LOT.

America zeroes in on its next AMERICAN IDOL during FOX May Sweeps, with four live Tuesday night performance shows. On Tuesday, May 1 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 5 finalists, mentored by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora of legendary rock band Bon Jovi, will perform rock songs live for the nation, singing their hearts out in hopes of winning America's vote and surviving another week in the competition. On each of the next two Tuesdays, May 8 and 15 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), one less finalist will vie for the title, and then on Tuesday, May 22 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the final two contestants will take the stage for the last time to battle it out for the crown at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, CA. After the contestants perform that night, viewers will vote to decide who will be the next AMERICAN IDOL.

House and the team tackle three difficult cases during May Sweeps. On Tuesday, May 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) in the "Family" episode, the team races against the clock to cure Matty Woodruff (guest star Dabier Snell), an 8-year-old planning to donate bone marrow to his dying older brother, Nick (guest star Jascha Washington), who is a leukemia patient at Princeton Plainsboro. As both brothers' conditions worsen and Nick has only days to live, the team must diagnose and treat Matty before it's too late for both boys. The following week, Tuesday, May 8 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), in the "Resignation" episode, after giving House his two-week notice, Foreman unapologetically announces his resignation to Cameron and Chase without a word of explanation, while the team treats Addie (guest star Lyndsy Fonseca), a 19-year-old college girl brought in after coughing up blood. Meanwhile, House takes a special interest in a young, attractive nutritionist named Honey (guest star Piper Perabo), whom he met at the clinic, and sees to it that they meet again under more casual circumstances. In the last all-new May Sweeps episode of HOUSE, "The Jerk" (Tuesday, May 15, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), House meets his match in the form of Nate (guest star Nick Lane), an obnoxious 16-year-old chess prodigy with intense head pain and behavioral issues, who manages to annoy and offend every member of House's team during his course of treatment. Meanwhile, Foreman's frustration with House reaches a new level when he believes House sabotages his job interview with another hospital. And in the season finale of HOUSE, "Human Error" airing Tuesday, May 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), House and the team take on the case of a young woman who, along with her husband, is rescued at sea en route from Cuba in a desperate attempt to see House and get a diagnosis for her illness. Meanwhile, Foreman prepares for his last day at Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital.

From Mark Burnett and Steven Spielberg comes ON THE LOT, a moviemaking competition series that affords aspiring filmmakers the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to win a $1-million DreamWorks development deal. The series will have a special preview following AMERICAN IDOL on Tuesday, May 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). In this audition episode, the 50 semifinalists, culled from over 12,000 submissions, are brought to Los Angeles to undergo a "Hollywood Boot Camp." The competitors must impress the judges � actress, screenwriter and author Carrie Fisher ("Star Wars," "Postcards From the Edge"); and directors/producers Brett Ratner ("Rush Hour 3," "X-Men 3"), Garry Marshall ("Georgia Rule," "Pretty Woman") and Jon Avnet ("Fried Green Tomatoes," "Risky Business") � or wind up on the cutting room floor.

WEDNESDAY

FOX Wednesday is jam-packed this May with must-see happenings: three all-new episodes of BONES, including the series' second season finale; and four LIVE AMERICAN IDOL results shows, including the two-hour season finale, which promises to be the biggest night of television this season.

This May on BONES, Brennan, Booth and the Jeffersonian team have their work cut out for them with three sets of unusual remains � bones from outer space, bones that glow and bones that seemingly belong to both a little girl and an old woman. First up on Wednesday, May 2 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) in "Spaceman in the Crater" is the case of a flattened body with signs of significant demineralization, suggesting the victim was either 130 years old or a space traveler. While Hodgins goes into hyper-drive with extraterrestrial conspiracy theories, Brennan and Booth keep both feet firmly planted on the ground to figure out who killed a former National Space Agency astronaut. The following week on Wednesday, May 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Brennan and Booth are called by Homeland Security to investigate potentially radioactive remains in "The Glowing Bones in the Old Stone House" episode, directed by Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Caleb Deschanel, father of series star Emily Deschanel. Back at the lab, the team determines the identity of the victim, but has no immediate explanation as to why the remains are emitting a green glow. With each of their specialties called upon, the whole Jeffersonian team joins Brennan and Booth in pursuing the murder mystery, which leads them to a group of friends who are shocked to discover that one of their own is the victim. In the season finale of BONES, "Stargazer in a Puddle" (Wednesday, May 16, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), featuring guest stars Ryan O'Neal and ZZ Top's Billy F. Gibbons, Brennan and Booth investigate a small skeleton assumed to be a 10-year-old girl, but Angela's facial reconstruction based on the evidence reveals the face of an 80-year-old woman instead of a child. Meanwhile, Brennan's father, Max Keenan (guest star O'Neal), reappears in Brennan's life in an attempt to make a connection and deliver information from her past; and Hodgins and Angela walk down the aisle with Brennan and Booth as maid of honor and best man, respectively, but all does not go as planned.

The most anticipated night of the television season is almost here � the finale of AMERICAN IDOL. On Wednesdays, May 2, 9 and 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the live results shows count down to the final two contestants. Each week, the finalist who receives the fewest votes will be eliminated from the race for the title. Then, on the two-hour AMERICAN IDOL season finale Wednesday, May 23 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 12 reunite on the stage one last time before the newest American Idol is crowned in front of thousands of fans and millions of television viewers.

THURSDAY

Although graduation season begins this May, viewers will have to hit the books when classes resume on the A+ quiz show ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? with all-new lessons Thursdays, April 26 and May 3 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and a special two-hour quiz session Thursday, May 10 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Host Jeff Foxworthy is at the head of the class of the atypical game show that tests adults' lack of knowledge � as revealed by how much they've forgotten since elementary school. New grownup contestants will again find themselves in a classroom setting, revisiting their youth, as they tackle subjects they've already been taught, ranging from art to geography and math to social studies. However, the players are not alone. There is a way for contestants to "cheat" in this classroom. The adults will have the opportunity to get some help from real grade-schoolers, who will offer what they think are the correct a-n-s-w-e-r-s.

TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY, the unscripted series where moms from different walks of life switch families to experience the ultimate life change, offers up two all-new episodes this May Sweeps. In the Thursday, April 26 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) installment, Cheri Naudin, a successful, competitive mom from Orange County, CA, trades places with Laurie Allen, a belly-dancing massage therapist from Santa Rosa, CA. The Naudin family keeps very busy with work, school and sports, while the Allens take a more laid-back approach to life. Will Laurie be able to keep up with the Naudins' fast-paced lifestyle, and how will Cheri pass the time when she suddenly has "nothing" to do? In Part 2 of this episode airing Thursday, May 3 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Cheri and Laurie say goodbye to their new families, each leaving behind a letter that could change the recipients' lives forever. Back in their own homes, they learn how they will have to spend the show's $50,000 prizes.

On the last Thursday of May Sweeps, Thursday, May 17 (8:00-10:30 PM ET/PT), Dennis Quaid and Jake Gyllenhaal battle Mother Nature in the World Broadcast Premiere of THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW. When global warming triggers the start of another Ice Age, weather catastrophes are felt around the world. Tornadoes flatten Los Angeles, a tidal wave surrounds New York City and the entire Northern Hemisphere begins to freeze. Climatologist Jack Hall (Quaid), his son Sam (Gyllenhaal) and a small group of survivors must ride out the growing super-storm and stay alive in the face of an enemy more violent and persistent than any they've ever faced: Mother Nature!

FRIDAY

FOX Fridays this May Sweeps are nights of classic drama with encore installments of HOUSE and BONES, and real-life family drama on NANNY 911.

On HOUSE, Stacy Warner (guest star Sela Ward), the woman House once loved, reappears in House's life to ask him to diagnose her husband, whose brain is inexplicably dying, in an encore of "The Honeymoon" episode (Friday, April 27, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

And, on Friday, May 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), a rebellious teenage girl (guest star Michelle Trachtenberg), who's immuno-compromised as a result of heart transplant medications, has a severe allergic reaction and goes into shock despite living in a "clean" room. Mel Harris also guest-stars in the encore of the HOUSE episode "Safe."

It's Nanny Yvonne to the rescue on NANNY 911 Friday, May 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Stevi and John McKelvain are at their wits' end with a 7-year-old daughter and three boys aged 6, 3 and 2. When the kids aren't fighting to get their parents' attention, they're fighting with each other, and the McKelvain household is out of control. On Friday, May 11 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), another call to NANNY 911 brings Nanny Deb to the chaotic Amico household, where parents David and Dawn are struggling to keep order among their oldest son Sal, and the quadruplets � three girls and a boy � all while running the family-owned pizzeria.

BONES also offers up four Friday-night encore episodes, starting with "The Man in the SUV" (Friday, April 27, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). A car bomb killing innocent people leads Brennan and Booth on the trail of a terrorist with possible U.S. government ties. When a human arm is found inside the stomach of a black bear, Brennan and Booth travel to Washington state to investigate possible ritualistic cannibalism in an encore of "The Man in the Bear" episode Friday, May 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Dr. Brennan discovers that she may have more in common with a victim, a teenage boy who had only comic books for friends, than she originally thought in an encore of "The Superhero in the Alley" airing Friday, May 11 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The final Friday of May Sweeps, Friday, May 18 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), sees an encore of BONES' "The Skull in the Desert," in which Angela fears her missing boyfriend is dead.

SATURDAY

This May Sweeps, FOX Saturday is chock-full of action-packed happenings: four all-new episodes of COPS; two all-new, special-edition episodes of AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK; two editions of NASCAR ON FOX in primetime; three all-new airings of MADtv, including the series' 12th season finale; and two all-new sit-downs on TALKSHOW WITH SPIKE FERESTEN.

COPS offers up two nights of back-to-back, all-new episodes this month.

That same night, the all-new, far-from-routine traffic stops continue with a passenger in a suspicious vehicle reaching for a gun in Cincinnati, OH, and a bikini-clad driver with a busted taillight in Las Vegas, NV, in COPS: POLICE PULLOVERS SPECIAL EDITION #2 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT). On Saturday, May 19, COPS cameras capture drug crimes and suspects in two more all-new, back-to-back episodes, COPS: HIGH CRIMES SPECIAL EDITION #2 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) and COPS: OHIO DRUG ARRESTS SPECIAL EDITION (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT).

The following week on Saturday, May 12 (7:00 PM-Midnight ET live/4:00-9:00 PM PT live), the action moves to Darlington Raceway for the DODGE AVENGER 400.

Always tackling the nation's hottest crime issues, AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK unleashes two all-new, special-edition episodes this May.

Michael Rapaport and Leah Remini guest-star in the Saturday, April 28 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT) episode. Rapaport portrays "Clark Gable" in "Gone With the Wind" as he provides alternate endings to this American film classic, and Remini's conversation with the flower delivery man gets out of hand. The following week, join the festivities as the cast of MADtv celebrates Cinco de Mayo Saturday, May 5 (Midnight-1:00 AM ET/PT) with all-new sketches, including "Survivor" and "Scrubs" parodies as well as footage from "Britney Spears" and "Kevin Federline"'s appearance in divorce court.

And, on Saturday, May 19 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT), funnyman Fred Willard drops by the late-night comedy fest to close out MADtv's 12th season.

This fast-paced half-hour combines elements of a talk show with irreverent comedy sketches � both inside the studio and out in the field � and goes where other talk shows have gone before, only faster. The unconventional format dispenses with the monologue, features comedy in every act and uses celebrity guests � and its own staff � in unpredictable ways.

SUNDAY

FOX May Sunday features all-new installments of KING OF THE HILL, THE SIMPSONS, FAMILY GUY and AMERICAN DAD, including two Texas-sized, one-hour special episodes of KING OF THE HILL and a special one-hour season finale of THE SIMPSONS, which is also the series' milestone 400th episode.

Anchorman Kent Brockman utters a swear word on live television when coffee is spilled in his lap, and Ned Flanders wages an anti-indecency campaign. Meanwhile, with the help of Jack Bauer (guest voice Sutherland) and Chloe O'Brian (guest voice Rajskub), Bart and Lisa, agents of the Counter Truancy Unit (CTU), must stop bullies Dolph, Kearney and Jimbo from releasing the ultimate stink bomb at the school's annual bake sale.

The following week Sunday, May 6 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) in the "No Chris Left Behind" episode, when Chris gets expelled from school, the family enrolls him in a snooty boarding school Mr. Pewterschmidt attended, and the chicken returns to pick a fight with Peter.

And, in the season finale of FAMILY GUY, "Meet the Quagmires" airing Sunday, May 20 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT), Death grants Peter's wish of going back in time to be 18 again just for one night so that he can sow his wild oats.

This May, AMERICAN DAD rolls out three all-new episodes. First up on Sunday, April 29 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) is "When a Stan Loves a Woman." After Stan discovers that Francine has a secret, he fears their marriage may be on shaky ground, while Steve becomes addicted to an energy drink and finds himself panhandling in the streets to support his habit.
