Fox sticks to script for fall sked

20 May 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

NEW YORK -- Fox Broadcasting Co. is taking a pass on new unscripted series for the fall and loading up on comedies in the 2005-06 season schedule unveiled to advertisers Thursday at the City Center in Manhattan. Five new dramas and two comedies will be ready for the fall, in stark contrast to the fleet of unscripted series like My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss that cratered Fox's primetime schedule in the fourth quarter of last year. Nonetheless, Fox rebounded strongly in January, with the heat of American Idol poised to deliver Fox its first-ever win for the season (albeit by the slimmest of margins over CBS) in the all-important 18-49 demographic. Less than six weeks into his post as president of entertainment for Fox, Peter Liguori, former president of FX, held up Fox as the network to beat next season. "We recognize we have a target on our backs," Liguori said. "Everyone is gunning for us." Borrowing a theme from 20th Century Fox's Star Wars franchise, Fox poked fun at its competitors Thursday, labeling CBS the Evil Empire under the leadership of Darth Moonves. Another taped skit skewered Liguori, who received advice on his new job from a range of people including Denis Leary, star of the FX drama Rescue Me, who ticked off a list of expletives that no longer can be used in shows Liguori oversees now that he's shifted from basic cable to broadcast TV. »
