Upfronts: Fox relocates “House” to buoy “Fringe”

FringecropFox is giving “Fringe” everything it’s got in the fall, moving “House” down to an 8 p.m. slot to give J.J. Abrams’ new drama (pictured left) a strong sendoff on Tuesdays in the fall.

There was more shuffling than we expected on Fox’s fall lineup. With going for laughs in the Wednesday 8-9 p.m. hour this fall, Fox has done a switcheroo and will slot drama “Bones” at 8 p.m. and its sitcom combo “Til Death” and “Do Not Disturb” (the working title for the newcomer formerly known as “The Inn”) at 9 p.m.

Monday will remain home to “Prison Break” at 8 p.m. at 9 p.m., paired with season two of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday are all unscripted, and Sunday remains animation central. Frosh toons “Sit Down, Shut Up” (which seems to have gone back to that title after switching to “Class Dismissed” earlier this week) and “Family Guy” spinoff “Cleveland” (pictured right) won’t be ready until spring at the earliest.Clevelandcrop

Here’s Fox’s fall sked. Variety’s marathon-man Michael Schneider has more details in this report. The January lineup and new show descriptions follow after the jump.
