SUMMER SIZZLES BEGINNING THIS MAY ON FOX

"SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE" BEGINS ANOTHER SEARCH FOR AMERICA'S FAVORITE DANCER MAY 21

NEW MEDICAL DRAMA "MENTAL" DEBUTS MAY 22

GORDON RAMSAY TURNS UP THE HEAT ON "HELL'S KITCHEN" JULY 21

"TEEN CHOICE 2009" CELEBRATES TEEN ICONS MONDAY, AUGUST 10

Television's hottest summer season begins this May with Season Five of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and the premiere of new medical drama MENTAL. Fan-favorites heat up the summer with the next installment of culinary competition HELL'S KITCHEN and all-new episodes of DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS!, ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER?, COPS and AMERICA'S MOST WANTED.

As previously announced, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, the high-stepping summer sensation, again promises to keep viewers moving to a different beat, as dancers skilled in styles ranging from street to ballroom compete to be named America's favorite. Featuring host Cat Deeley, judges Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe and some of the country's greatest choreographers, Season Five of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE kicks off with a two-night, four-hour premiere Thursday, May 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Wednesday, May 27 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Once the DANCE auditions conclude, weekly performance shows will air Wednesdays (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and weekly results shows will air Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Medical drama MENTAL will debut Friday, May 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The series follows Dr. Jack Gallagher (Chris Vance), a dynamic, young psychiatrist who serves as Director of Mental Health Services at a Los Angeles hospital. At work he must reconcile his effective, yet highly unorthodox treatment methods with his conservative boss, hospital administrator Nora Skoff (Annabella Sciorra), a woman with whom he shares a romantic past. As Gallagher takes on new cases, he is confronted with patients battling unknown, misunderstood and often misdiagnosed conditions. Gallagher delves inside their minds to gain a true understanding of who they are, allowing him to uncover what just might be the key to their long-term recovery.

The summer gets even hotter when the next installment of HELL'S KITCHEN kicks off with a special two-hour premiere Tuesday, July 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The intensity continues Tuesdays beginning July 28 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) as Chef Gordon Ramsay narrows down the field of competing chefs until only one remains standing in the kitchen.

DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS! returns to lock-in the lyrics with all-new episodes Friday, May 22 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), and ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? heads back to the classroom for summer session and all-new episodes Friday, July 3 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The most arresting night of television continues on Saturdays with a mixture of all-new and encore episodes of COPS (8:00-8:30 and 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) and all-new episodes AMERICA'S MOST WANTED (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

As previously announced, TEEN CHOICE 2009, the annual special that celebrates the year's hottest teen icons in film, television, music, sports and fashion, will air Monday, August 10 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The coolest stars, best films and best TV shows of 2008-2009 will receive coveted Teen Choice Award Surfboards in categories such as Choice Breakout TV Show, Choice Reality/Variety Show, Choice Breakout Artist, Choice Male Hottie, Choice Female Athlete and Choice Hook-up.
