Here's a couple of things we learned from Fox's fall schedule announcement:
First, the days of "American Idol" dominating the second half the season are over.
And, second, after years of struggling to establish live-action comedies, Fox is going back to its roots. It will intersperse live-action and animated comedies on Sunday nights.
"We're returning back to our roots," said Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly, who pointed to the success of shows like "Married ... With Children," "Malcolm In the Middle" and "That'70s Show" shared Sunday nights with animated series.
The network is also giving up on its four-comedy Tuesdays, putting "Utopia" — a "Big Brother"-ish show — in front of the returning "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project."<
