Fox lines up summer slate

'Dance' and 'Mental' will return to network

Fox is kicking off its summer slate in late May, starting with the return of “So You Think You Can Dance” and new drama “Mental.”

As previously announced, “Dance” launches its fifth season on Thursday, May 21, with a two-hour special (the night after the “American Idol” finale, as has become tradition at Fox). “Dance” will also air a two-hour special on Wednesday, May 27.

Show then will fall into a regular series pattern, with two hour performance shows on Wednesdays and one-hour weekly results shows Thursdays at 9 p.m.

The new drama “Mental,” meanwhile, will air Fridays at 9 p.m. starting May 22. Fox TV Studios and Fox Intl. Channels shot 13 episodes of “Mental,” starring Chris Vance and Annabella Sciorra, in the fall at Fox TeleColombia in Bogota, Colombia.

Simultaneous to its run on Fox, “Mental” will air day-and-date on Fox Intl. Channels outlets in 35 countries.

“Mental” will be paired with the return of reality skein “Don’t Forget the Lyrics,” which will air Fridays at 8 p.m. starting May 22. Then, on July 3, reality competish “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” will take over that slot.

Also in the summer, Fox will air the next edition of “Hell’s Kitchen,” which kicks off Tuesday, July 21 at 8 p.m. with a two-hour opener. Show will continue to air in the Tuesday 8 p.m. slot.
