Fox’s Tuesday lineup to bow next Jan. 19

Fox Broadcasting Co. will introduce its new Tuesday lineup on Jan. 19, bringing the weblet to six regular nights of programming plus its monthly movie slot.

The two drama series, ABC Prods.’ “Class of ’96” and Viacom’s “Key West,” had been scheduled to premiere Oct. 27 but were delayed so Fox could devote more resources toward the launch, as well as seek to address weaknesses on other nights (Daily Variety, Sept. 28).

Introducing the Tuesday shows should be a major challenge. Fox was able to get Wednesday off the ground by introducing “Melrose Place” over the summer and permanently moving an established series, “Beverly Hills, 90210,” into the 8 p.m. hour.

The trade-off was a commensurate fall-off at 9 o’clock Thursday, where “The Heights”– originally targeted for Wednesday –has already been put on hiatus.

The Fox young-adult and teen audience is dominated Tuesday by ABC with its comedy block, particularly “Full House” and “Roseanne.” However, “Rescue 911” and “Quantum Leap,” the two other 8 p.m. entries, also have solid skews in the key 18-49 demographic.

The Monday “Fox Night at the Movies” slot plays on a monthly basis, though the weblet eventually wants to make it weekly as well for a full seven nights of programming.

Once the movie is weekly, Fox will be at 16 hours per week and will have six months to drop an hour in order to comply with FCC guidelines that define a network as any service offering more than 15 hours of national prime time programming a week.
