FOX Overhauls Its Summer Schedule (Again)
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- FOX is living up to its skittish reputation as the network has once again made changes to its previously announced summer lineup.

The moves, which have been confirmed to the site exclusively by network sources, include a new home for "Mental" and the return of "The Moment of Truth."

Newcomer "Mental" will now kick off Tuesday, May 26 at 9:00/8:00c following repeats of "House" with encores on Fridays at 9:00/8:00c. The series will then shift to the latter slot on Friday, July 3.

Meanwhile, "Truth" is set to rejoin the network's schedule on Wednesday, July 29 at 9:00/8:00c.

Assuming its reality and animated franchises remain in place on Saturdays and Sundays, said changes essentially complete the missing pieces to FOX's summer slate. Here's a complete breakdown of what to expect through August, by day of the week:
