Well, Fox has announced its new fall line up. The theme of the 2001 season seems to be: Don't mess with a good thing. Fox has left its popular series well-enough alone and added some new ones in key times slots. Check it out:

The Veterans

Some of your old faves will be back again this fall. Most of them haven't even jumped time slots which means you can still count on your Tuesday night dose of retro and your Sunday night laugh-fest.
What's better than Malcom, Reese, Lois and Hal in the middle of some choice cartoon comedy? Nothing and Fox knows it. Malcolm in the Middle, The Simpsons, King of the Hill and Futurama are all still on Sundays.


That '70s Show is sitting tight on Tuesday nights at 8 pm. Look for more crazy adventures with Hyde and Fez and more romantic rollercoaster rides with Donna, Eric, Kelso and Jackie. And let's not forget all that cheesy '70s clothing. Boston Public is sticking around on Mondays at 8 pm. The season finale was a good one. Annoying VP Grueber got recognized by the students and that abused kid turned the tables on his mother. Wonder what'll happen next season?

Grounded for Life will be back, holding down Wednesday nights at 8:30 pm. This show was hard to follow last year - it was on/it wasn't/it was again - which is too bad cuz it was funny. Actress Lindsey Bartilson is great as the teenage daughter (and parental nightmare) Lilly. Look for her hysterical yet subtle obsession with Justin Timberlake - it makes for some funny jokes.
Dark Angel flys back into the line up. The show seemed to have a following last year and hopefully they'll be able to follow her to Fridays. This fall look for Jessica Alba and her bar code tattoo on Friday nights at 8 pm.

The Newbies

Fox is trying its luck with some shows that seem like good ideas - and some that don't.

Undeclared

This is a word that will become part of your vocab once you're in college. It's what people say when they haven't picked a major - so it's the perfect title for this comedy that is set to air right after That '70s Show (Tuesday 8:30 pm.) The show is about college life, as seen through the eyes of Steven Karp, a freshman. It deals with Steven's social life in college along with six of his dorm friends.
The Tick Okay, this is a concept gone horribly wrong. Tick as a comic book hero, great. Tick as a cartoon, okay. Tick as a live-action series - with a middle aged guy dressed in a big blue rubber suit - more scary than funny. I don't know if Fox is trying to make this into a big funny joke or if they seriously expect people to get into this super hero and his insect friends. I don't think it'll fly.

Tempted by reality TV? Fox knows it and they've brought back a big hit. Temptation Island 2 will air in the fall on Thursdays at 9 pm. Get ready for more hotties in swimsuits.

    I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.

    Well I'm not a really big fan of Taylor Swift but if I had to choose I love both because 'shake it off' is for the older teens as well. So its great as she is growing up so is her music
