The Fox network is planning a low-key summer of music, dance and Legos.
It will also have some cooking and wrestling; there’s always wrestling. And alongside lots of reality shows, it will have two scripted ones – “Fantasy Island” (shown here) and “Duncanville.”
All of that starts early, with everything in place by the end of May. It includes:
SUNDAYS: “Duncanville” – Amy Poehler’s animated comedy – starts its season at 7:30 p.m. May 1. It will be surrounded by other cartoons – new episodes at first, then reruns.
MONDAYS: Two musical game shows will share the night, starting May 23. At 8 p.m. is “Don’t Forget the Lyrics,” hosted by Niecy Nash; at 9 is “Beat Shazam,” with Jamie Foxx hosting and his daughter Corinne as DJ.
TUESDAYS: A mixed night – reality, then scripted – starts May 31. At 8 p.m., Will Arnett hosts “Lego Masters”; at 9 is “Fantasy Island.” The latter had a late-summer run last year, with Roselyn Sanchez (shown here) playing a descendant of the original island-master, Mr. Roarke.
WEDNESDAYS: After a two-year Covid break, “So You Think You Can Dance” takes the 9 p.m. slot. On May 18, it follows the season-finale of “The Masked Singer”; a week later, “MasterChef” starts its season at 8. Gordon Ramsay hosts and produces “MasterChef,” as always, but Nigel Lythgoe will no longer be on the panel of “Dance,” which he co-created.
ALSO: No details were offered for the other three days, but two are spoken for. Fridays have wrestling; Saturdays have baseball.
