AFTER BASEBALL, FOX STILL HAS THE HITS NETWORK ANNOUNCES ALL-STAR LINEUPS FOR MONDAY, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY

"THE SWAN" RETURNS OCT. 25 AND JOINS SUMMER HIT "TRADING SPOUSES" ON MONDAY NIGHTS STARTING NOV. 1 "THE O.C." AND "NORTH SHORE" MOVE TO THURSDAY WITH TIME-PERIOD PREMIERES NOV. 4 "TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR" & "WORLD'S CRAZIEST VIDEOS" MOVE TO FRIDAY ON OCT. 22, LEADING INTO NEW EPISODES OF "THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP" "COPS" GOES TO LAS VEGAS FOR A ONE-HOUR SPECIAL NOV. 19

When the World Series bats go quiet, the hits will continue on FOX. The network has announced new, all-star lineups on Monday, Thursday and Friday nights after post-season baseball.

The second season of THE SWAN premieres with a special two-hour episode on Monday, Oct. 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. In the first hour, the participants from season 1 reunite for the first time on television to share stories, reminisce about their experiences in the Swan program and update viewers on how their makeovers have changed their lives. After a sneak peak at the new group of Swans, the transformations will begin in the second hour, when viewers will be introduced to two women who are transformed inside and out through cosmetic surgery and an intensive "boot camp" of exercise, diet, therapy and coaching, all while not seeing themselves in a mirror during the three-month process. After the final reveal of their transformations, one will be selected to move on to the Swan Pageant and one will go home. Another two women are transformed on the time period premiere of THE SWAN Monday, Nov. 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Beginning Nov. 1, Monday nights on FOX will feature a double-header of popular unscripted shows. The smash summer hit TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY moves to Monday at 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT, where it will be followed by the second season of THE SWAN � last season's No. 1 makeover show among Adults 18-49.

TRADING SPOUSES tries to answer the age-old question, "Is the grass really greener on the other side?", by having moms and dads switch families to take on a clan from another walk of life. In part 1 of each episode, the spouses spend a few days getting accustomed to their new family's way of life before imposing their own rules on the household. While some parents are welcomed with open arms, others face mutiny. The drama escalates in part 2, when the parents decide how their new family will spend the $50,000 prize. Two new parents trade houses and spouses in the time period premiere of TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY Monday, Nov. 1 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

FOX Thursday will burn with audience-favorite dramas featuring two of the hottest casts on television. Leading off the night will be THE O.C., the highest-rated drama series of 2003-2004 among Adults 18-34 and Teens, which begins its eagerly awaited second season Nov. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Then NORTH SHORE makes its own splash, riding a wave of summer success to follow THE O.C. on Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

On the second-season premiere of THE O.C., viewers will find out how life has changed for residents of Orange County. As season 1 ended, Ryan returned to Chino to protect his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Theresa, from her abusive ex-boyfriend. And with Ryan's departure, Seth decided to do what he always had planned � sail off on his yacht, the Summer Breeze, and run away from Newport Beach. With Seth and Ryan gone, Kirsten and Sandy try to stay busy with a remodeling project at home, while Julie and Caleb settle into their gorgeous Newport Beach mansion. Marissa and Summer both have had long and lonely summers living with their parents�or have they? Find out when THE O.C. moves to Thursdays starting Nov. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

NORTH SHORE makes its time period premiere with new plot twists behind the scenes of Hawaii's most glamorous resort hotel. Now that Alexandra (guest star Shannen Doherty) owns a majority of The Grand Waimea, she decides to clean house by firing Vincent and promoting Tessa to be Nicole's new boss. Nicole quickly reaches her boiling point and loses control in front of guests, prompting Alexandra to fire her � much to Tessa's delight. Meanwhile, Alexandra enlists Frankie's help in introducing her to the local community leaders, but her plan backfires when Jason shows her that running a hotel requires much more than just majority ownership on the NORTH SHORE episode "Leverage" Thursday, Nov. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

On Fridays starting Oct. 22, THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP gives a whole new meaning to the term "power hitter." On Oscar De La Hoya's unscripted series, boxers are battling it out � in and out of the ring � until one of them wins a professional contract with De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions and a title fight within the World Boxing Organization (WBO). The competition intensifies as two of the eight remaining fighters face off in an elimination bout that sends one of them home and the victor one step closer to becoming THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP on the time period premiere Friday, Oct. 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Batting lead-off for THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP will be never-before-seen episodes of the popular clip shows TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) and WORLD'S CRAZIEST VIDEOS (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT). Hosted by Fox Sports Net's Lisa Dergan, TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR reveals what can happen when people press the "record" button on their video cameras and capture the most shocking and unbelievable moments for posterity. On WORLD'S CRAZIEST VIDEOS, comedian/host Brian Unger presents funny flubs and blunders from TV shows, news broadcasts and other hilarious outtakes from around the world.

On Nov. 19, COPS goes to Las Vegas for a special one-hour edition. In this all-new episode of the veteran police series, cameras capture the events surrounding a homicide with very detailed coverage from crime scene to courtroom. Other segments include a car chase and women urinating in a casino parking lot along the legendary Las Vegas Strip on COPS: LAS VEGAS METRO '04 airing Friday, Nov. 19 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
