Fox Reveals Bauer-less Lineup
Fox released its 2010-2011 fall TV lineup, and with only a few holes to fill due to cancellations, there will not be any major changes to the schedule.
After eight seasons, the nearly-immortal Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland, pictured, will take a much needed break – maybe to sleep and eat. Though there has been talk of a 24 movie, no official time line has been made.
Joss Whedon‘s cult-favorite, Dollhouse, came back to life for one more season after fans protested the show’s cancellation last year by taking to social networking sites, Facebook and Twitter. However, the fans’ dedication proved to be not enough to save Eliza Dushku‘s character Echo, who will not be returning in the fall.
While the highly popular American Idol will be returning this fall, it will be without the show’s founder Simon Cowell. Cowell announced his departure in January, stating that he was interested in bringing his popular British television show, The X Factor, stateside.
While the show has not made an appearance on Fox’s lineup this fall, the network is still in search for a replacement for the snarky judge. –ELENA COX
