Here are the highlights, night by night, for this February on FOX:

MONDAY

Mondays this February, FOX unleashes three all-new episodes of PRISON BREAK and five all-new, heart-racing hours of 24, including a night of back-to-back, Jack-to-Jack episodes.

The manhunt continues and the body count rises this February on PRISON BREAK. In the "Chicago" episode Monday, Feb. 5 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Michael and Sara become more than "strangers on a train" en route to confronting the President; Mahone recruits an new ally in his attempts to capture the fugitives; T-Bag puts on a happy face when the welcome wagon arrives; and a fourth escapee takes a fall. Two weeks later (Monday, Feb. 19, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) in "Bad Blood," Michael and Sara realize that Warden Pope (guest star Stacy Keach) is the key to recovering information that will bring down "The Company"; Mahone corners another escapee; C-Note fears for his daughter's life; Sucre learns the dangers of hitchhiking en route to reuniting with Maricruz; and T-Bag walks down memory lane when he takes the Hollander family to his childhood home. In the final February installment of PRISON BREAK, "Wash" airing Monday, Feb. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Lincoln, Michael and Sara find the evidence they need to expose the conspiracy; Mahone forces one of the escapees to draw Michael and Lincoln out into the open; T-Bag's visit to a psychiatrist's office is more than therapeutic; Bellick is dispatched south of the border; and Kellerman sets his sights on the President.

Six hours in, and already Jack Bauer's sixth non-stop day-from-hell is on an unbelievably thrilling countdown. The nation is under attack, Jack has returned home after a hellish 20 months in a Chinese prison and veteran CTU agent Curtis Manning is dead. February sees four all-new, suspense-filled weeks of 24, including a special two-hour television event. First, Jack is reunited with his estranged father (guest star James Cromwell) as the nation copes with the nuclear attack (Monday, Feb. 5, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). In a special two-hour event airing Monday, Feb. 12 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the nation continues to reel from the terrorist attacks, Agent Bauer battles unthinkable circumstances and savvy politico Reed Pollock (guest star Chad Lowe) and Vice President Noah Daniels (guest star Powers Boothe) become increasingly involved. As the situation worsens, new leads are uncovered and the investigation takes an unlikely turn on Monday, Feb. 19, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT. And in the 11th hour of Season Six airing Monday, Feb. 26 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the terror threat escalates, and developments in the Administration and at CTU intensify the already-critical circumstances facing the country.

TUESDAY

The quest for the next American Idol is on! America gets closer to finding its next singing superstar during FOX February, and Tuesday nights boast four not-to-be-missed episodes of AMERICAN IDOL, plus two all-new HOUSE calls and a special Tuesday night airing of 'TIL DEATH.

IDOL auditions hit San Antonio Tuesday, Feb. 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) � some will be two-stepping their way to Hollywood, while others are sent packing. The following week, contestants chosen from around the nation arrive in Hollywood for their big chance at the AMERICAN IDOL crown.

Faced with a grueling schedule, pressure-packed rehearsals and the judges' criticism, some will survive and more will go home during the Hollywood Round Tuesday, Feb. 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The performance shows kick off the following two Tuesdays, as the male semifinalists first take the stage on Tuesday, Feb. 20 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Tuesday, Feb. 27 (8:00-9:30 PM ET/PT).

In the first of two all-new Tuesday episodes of HOUSE, "Needle in a Haystack" airing Tuesday, Feb. 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the oddities of 16-year-old Stevie Lipa's case � a serious respiratory condition and internal bleeding � land him under House's and the team's care. When his gypsy parents arrive bearing homeopathic remedies, they won't consent to the doctors' suggested course of action, refusing any modern medical treatment. As Stevie continues to bleed internally, Foreman makes a risky decision and puts his medical license on the line. Meanwhile, House is beyond irritated when a new hospital researcher is assigned his handicapped parking spot. Determined to get a spot even closer to the hospital entrance, House appeals to Cuddy, who dares him to prove how much he wants it by spending a week in a wheelchair � a bet House takes.

The following week (Tuesday, Feb. 13, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on HOUSE, it's Valentine's Day at Princeton-Plainsboro, and the ER is short-staffed due to a snowstorm. House encounters Foreman's patient, Hannah, who has sustained injuries from a car accident but feels no pain, and takes a special interest in her case. He orders further testing to see if she has any serious injuries that she may not be able to feel, including an unnecessary procedure that causes Cuddy and Wilson to question House's motives. When she passes out and her temperature spikes, the doctors realize that she is much sicker than they had thought. As Hannah's body deteriorates without her so much as flinching, House works through his own chronic pain to find out why this young woman cannot feel anything at all in the "Insensitive" episode.

On the last Tuesday of February, Feb. 27, 'TIL DEATH (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) has a special Tuesday-night airing after an expanded AMERICAN IDOL, serving up an encore of the "Fight Friend" episode guest-starring Margaret Cho and Anthony Anderson. Joy turns to her friend Nicole (guest star Cho) for help when she and Eddie are fighting. When Eddie confronts Joy about Nicole, they get into a heated argument and seek support from their respective "fight friends" � Joy teaming up with Nicole, and Eddie with Nicole's husband Cofeld (guest star Anderson), in order to prove their points.

WEDNESDAY

On Wednesday nights this February, FOX presents two all-new episodes of BONES, both featuring guest stars Stephen Fry and Eddie McClintock; four installments of AMERICAN IDOL, including two special expanded editions; and a bonus episode of 'TIL DEATH.

Stephen Fry ("Jeeves and Wooster," "Blackadder") and Eddie McClintock ("Desperate Housewives") guest-star in the first of two all-new February episodes of BONES, "The Girl in the Gator" airing Wednesday, Feb. 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). After "maliciously" shooting an ice cream truck's clown hood ornament, Booth is forced to undergo psychiatric evaluation to return to work and get his gun back. With Booth out of commission, Brennan, who's in Florida to investigate the death of a young college student whose body is found inside a dead alligator, is paired with Agent Tim Sullivan (guest star McClintock). Although he's easygoing, the two of them have stylistic differences and communication problems from the start, and Brennan looks forward to Booth's return. As the Jeffersonian team works to unravel the circumstances surrounding the girl's death, Brennan finds she's more charmed by Sullivan than she cares to admit. Meanwhile, Booth has several meetings with FBI psychiatrist Dr. Gordon Wyatt (guest star Fry), an Englishman who conducts their "sessions" in his backyard and assigns an unorthodox project to Booth, while surreptitiously getting him to talk about his attack on the clown.

Guest stars Fry and McClintock are joined by another guest star, Ernie Hudson, the following week in "The Man in the Mansion" episode of BONES Wednesday, Feb. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Brennan, Booth and the Jeffersonian team are called in by the Bancroft family, major donors to the Jeffersonian, to investigate the death of patriarch Terence Bancroft, found stabbed and bound to his desk chair. The team can tell almost instantly he's been dead for a while, maybe as long as a month. Booth questions Terence's wife, while the team brings the body and evidence back to the lab for further tests. Hodgins removes an old photo of himself and the victim from the official evidence, knowing the photo links him to the case � an action that could jeopardize the Jeffersonian's reputation and Hodgins' career. Psychiatrist Dr. Gordon Wyatt (guest star Fry) has cleared Booth to carry a gun and return to work, contingent on Booth continuing to meet with Wyatt about a few underlying issues that may be affecting his judgment and investigative skills. Meanwhile, Agent Sullivan (guest star McClintock) invites Brennan to come to one of his basketball games, turning up the heat on their relationship.

Wednesday night is AMERICAN IDOL night during February, as the ultimate singing competition continues Wednesday, Feb. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). This season's Top 24 semifinalists are revealed Wednesday, Feb. 14 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and the first female semifinalist performance shows begin Wednesday, Feb. 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Wednesday, Feb. 28 (8:00-9:30 PM ET/PT), followed by a special Wednesday-night airing of 'TIL DEATH (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Meanwhile, Joy is sick at home, and Steph comes over with a special recipe to help them both feel better.

In the final all-new February installment of 'TIL DEATH, "The Italian Affair" (Thursday, Feb. 15, 8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), when Joy accuses Eddie of being a pack rat, he and Jeff go through piles of ancient items from Eddie's past and come across an old roll of film.

Martin Mull guest-stars in the first of three all-new February episodes of THE WAR AT HOME Thursday, Feb. 1 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT). Principal Fink (guest star Mull) suspends Larry for 30 days when pot is found in his jacket pocket, although it's actually Dave's jacket, which Larry wore by mistake.

But when Sid goes too far with a stripper, Dave wonders whether or not to tell Betty and risk losing the free trip. Meanwhile, Kenny goes on a date with an ex-boyfriend of Hillary's, prompting Dave to have an awkward conversation with him about gay safe-sex and Hillary to worry that she has a knack for turning men gay in the "No Weddings and a Funeral" episode.

In the final all-new February installment of THE WAR AT HOME Thursday, Feb. 15 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), "Kenny Doesn't Live Here Anymore," the kids are excited about the school's Sadie Hawkins dance, and even Kenny has a date. Once word gets out that Kenny's planning on attending with another guy, they are barred from the event for not keeping with the Sadie Hawkins tradition. An outraged Larry stages a protest against the discrimination, and Dave goes to the school to argue Kenny's case. Once Principal Fink (guest star Martin Mull) finds out that Kenny has been living with the Golds, he informs Dave that he's obligated to tell Child Services and that Kenny will have to be put in foster care, so Dave sets out to get Kenny's parents to let him come home.

In a special Thursday-night episode of AMERICAN IDOL (Thursday, Feb. 22, 8:00-9:00 PM LIVE ET/tape-delayed PT), four of the Top 24 semifinalists � two male, two female � will be eliminated from the competition and sent home during the season's very first LIVE results show.

In "The Case of the Franks" Thursday, Feb. 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the first of four final episodes of THE O.C., Taylor comes up with a plan to make things right between Ryan and his dad, Frank (guest star Kevin Sorbo), while Julie continues to move things forward with Bullit.
