Stay Tuned: Fox reading a strike schedule

Nothing’s set yet, but Fox Broadcasting could announce a strike schedule as early as today.

So far, nets haven’t made many adjustments to their lineups, save for ABC’s decision to push “Cashmere Mafia” until after November and NBC’s scrapping of “Heroes: Origins.”

Fox, however, could be the first net to detail how its sked might change if the walkout drags on.

One key question: The fate of “24.” Insiders say that if the strike last more than about two weeks, it could be impossible for the show to premiere in early January as planned without taking some sort of hiatus. What’s more, producers probably wouldn’t be too happy about an eight-episode season of the show.

As somebody else might say: Impacting….
