FOR THE LOVE OF RAY J (VH1, New!) - The cable channel will roll out the latest installment of 51 Minds Entertainment's "Love" franchise on Monday, February 2 at 10:30/9:30c. Said hour, which will regularly air on Mondays at 10:00/9:00c, features 14 ladies competing for the heart of R&B star Ray J. Cris Abrego and Mark Cronin are the executive producers. No other specifics were released.


FOX AT THE TCA - Amongst its sea of scheduling announcements today, FOX also confirmed that "American Idol's" Wednesday edition will move to 9:00/8:00c once results shows begin. "Lie to Me," which bows next week at 9:00/8:00c, will then slide back to 8:00/7:00c. And on the development front, FOX has ordered a new pilot for "Boldly Going Nowhere," its sci-fi comedy from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" creators Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, and Charlie Day, while the drama "Virtuality" is being recut by director Peter Berg into an hourlong installment after the two-hour version was deemed too dense.


THE CW AT THE TCA - "One Tree Hill" creator Mark Schwahn won't be behind the netlet's "Melrose Place" revival, CW chief Dawn Ostroff confirmed at the network's TCA Winter Press Tour party on Monday night. The search is still underway for someone to spearhead the project, which is expected to receive a pilot order in the coming weeks. As for specifics, Ostroff would only reveal the new incarnation would attempt to capture life in the Los Angeles neighborhood, something the original did not. She also hopes to, like "90210," feature a mix of new and returning characters to the franchise. Also of note: Mike Fleiss's latest entry "Hitched or Ditched" will roll out in the spring, most likely leading out of the upcoming cycle of "America's Next Top Model." The project features couples at a crossroads in their relationship who must decide whether or not to follow through with a lavish wedding in a week's time.
