Fox Cuts Summer Schedule to 3 Reality Shows and Reruns

“So You Think You Can Dance,” “Hell’s Kitchen” among returning series

Last Updated: March 15, 2011 @ 10:12 AM

Fox plans a summer of scripted reruns and new episodes of three reality shows.

The network's summer schedule, unveiled Monday, announced premiere dates for the  three summer reality shows: "So You Think You Can Dance" (May 26), "Masterchef" (June 6) and "Hell's Kitchen" (July 19).

"Lie to Me," which ceded its Monday 9 p.m. time slot last month to "The Chicago Code," will return in reruns Friday at 9 p.m. — a TV no man's land — starting June 3. "The Chicago Code" has an even less desirable time slot: Saturday nights at 9 p.m., starting June 25.

Reruns of "Fringe" and "Human Target" aren't on the schedule at all.
