Exclusive: FOX Sets August, Early September Plans; "Masterchef" Heads to Wednesdays
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- FOX has locked in its plans leading up to the launch of its 2010-11 season lineup, network sources have confirmed to the site exclusively.

It all begins - or ends so to speak - with the season finales of "Hell's Kitchen" on Tuesday, August 10 and "So You Think You Can Dance" on Wednesday, August 11 (performance) and Thursday, August 12 (results).

The following week, "Glee," "Bones," "Fringe" and "Human Target" will start to assume their fall time periods: back-to-back repeat episodes of "Glee" on Tuesday nights beginning August 17; repeats of "Bones" and "Fringe" on Thursdays starting August 26; and double encore episodes of "Human Target" on Friday nights effective September 3.

In addition, newcomer "Masterchef," following a three-week run on Tuesday nights (July 27-August 10), will shift to Wednesdays beginning August 18 to lay the groundwork for "Hell's Kitchen's" eighth season debut this fall.

Premiere dates for all of FOX's new and returning fall series will be announced later this summer.
