FOX is announcing season finale dates and premiere dates for its summer programs, including new unscripted series DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO GO, the Season 10 premiere of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, the premiere of family comedy THE GOODWIN GAMES and the return of MASTERCHEF.

New unscripted workplace experiment DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO GO clocks in with a special preview Wednesday, May 15 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the first night of the two-night season finale of AMERICAN IDOL (8:00-9:00 ET live/PT tape-delayed). In the series, which makes its time period premiere Thursday, May 23 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the boardroom doors get blown wide open when employees are given the power to make some tough decisions. Frustrated bosses will hand over the reins of their companies to the employees, offering their respective staffs a chance to make changes in the workplace - even if it means letting co-workers go. Each participating office will have its own set of issues, which will force them to take a hard look at what's plaguing their workplace and answer the toughest question of all: DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO GO?

Returning for its landmark 10th season, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE waltzes into a new season Tuesday, May 14 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The Emmy Award-nominated hit dance competition series will feature host Cat Deeley and resident judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, as well as guest judges including actress Minnie Driver, actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson, comedian Wayne Brady, All-Star Stephen "tWitch" Boss and Adam Shankman, among others, at auditions in Austin, Boston, Detroit, Memphis and Los Angeles. Each two-hour show will again feature breathtaking performances as well as suspenseful eliminations, as the contestants compete to be named America's Favorite Dancers.

New comedy THE GOODWIN GAMES starts playing Monday, May 20 (8:30-9:00 PM), as part of a night of half-hour comedies, including encores of RAISING HOPE (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), NEW GIRL (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and THE MINDY PROJECT (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). Starring Scott Foley ("Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy," "Felicity"), Becki Newton ("Ugly Betty") and T.J. Miller ("Our Idiot Brother," "She's Out Of My League"), the inventive family comedy tells the story of three estranged siblings who return home after the loss of their beloved father (guest star Beau Bridges, "My Name Is Earl"), and unexpectedly find themselves poised to inherit more than $20 million - if, and only if, they can adhere to their late father's wishes.

MASTERCHEF debuts its fourth season with a two-hour season premiere on Wednesday, May 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). After a nationwide search, the best home cooks in America arrive in Los Angeles to present their signature dishes to judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot. The hopefuls whose dishes impress the judges the most will earn a coveted white apron and move onto the next round. Throughout the season, the judges will challenge the newest batch of contestants through a series of grueling challenges and elimination rounds to determine which home cook has the skill, drive and passion to make a mark in the culinary world and win a life-changing grand prize.

As previously announced, ANIMATION DOMINATION HIGH-DEF, FOX's new alternative animated programming block, will premiere on air Saturday, July 27 (11:00 PM-12:30 AM ET/PT), with a number of new quarter-hour animated series, including AXE COP, based on the hit graphic novel; HIGH SCHOOL USA!, created by Dino Stamatopoulos ("Community"); the UNTITLED LUCAS BROTHERS PROJECT, from identical twin comedians Kenny and Keith Lucas (aka The Lucas Brothers); and GOLAN THE INSATIABLE, from Fox Digital Studio script writer Joshua Miller. Voice actors include Megan Mullally ("Children's Hospital," "Will & Grace"), Patton Oswalt ("Young Adult," "Ratatouille"), Ken Marino ("Children's Hospital," "Party Down"), Vincent Kartheiser ("Mad Men"), Mandy Moore ("Tangled"), among others.
