Fox’s ‘Jury’ to Friday early

Net has no plans for additional episodes of skein

“The Jury” is out.

Fox has decided to shift its low-rated legal drama to Friday nights at 9, starting next week. As of now, however, net has no plans to order additional episodes of the skein and is not picking up its options of any of the show’s castmembers.

All of this likely means “The Jury” is dead, but Fox insiders said that if the show acquits itself on Fridays, there’s a chance the net will bring it back. “Jury” preemed June 8 and was scheduled to air on Fridays in the fall.

Five episodes of “The Jury’s” original 10-episode order remain unaired. With planned hiatuses, a Fox spokesman said the net will have enough episodes of the show to get through mid-August.

Fox will air repeats of “Bernie Mac” and “Method and Red” Tuesday, July 6, with baseball’s All-Star Game skedded for July 13. Starting July 20, Fox will replace “The Jury” Tuesdays at 9 p.m. with repeats of “That ’70s Show” and “Quintuplets.”

While the verdict on “The Jury” has been less than favorable, Fox execs have reason to be cautiously optimistic about some elements of the net’s ambitious summer sked.

“Quintuplets” has emerged as a success story, this week improving on its repeat “That ’70s Show” lead-in. And “The Simple Life 2: Road Trip” is a bonafide hit.
