FOX Trims 'On the Lot' to One Weekly Airing
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- After another week of sagging ratings, FOX has dropped its Monday edition of "On the Lot."

The series will now condense its competition and results shows into one weekly one-hour program, airing Tuesdays at 8:00/7:00c starting June 5.

Said schedule will continue until its two-night finale airs on Monday, August 13 and Tuesday, August 14 (both at 8:00/7:00c). (The series will also have a special Monday, 8:00/7:00c airing on July 9 due to the network's coverage of the MLB All-Star Game on July 10.)

In its place on Mondays at 8:00/7:00c, FOX will run repeats of "House" and "Hell's Kitchen" on June 4 and June 11, respectively, while a mix of "The Simpsons," "American Dad" and "Family Guy" encores will fill the hour for the rest of the summer.

As a result of the change, FOX will shift "The Loop's" previously announced Tuesday airings (June 5 and June 12) to Sundays at 7:30/6:30c on June 24 and July 1. The news means that "The Loop" will air at 7:30/6:30c, 8:30/7:30c and 9:30/8:30c on said nights. (Regular 7:30/6:30c occupant "King of the Hill" then will move to 7:00/6:00c on those two nights.)

To help wade through the confusion, here's a breakdown of the affected nights:


Monday, June 4:
8:00/7:00c - "House" (R, Encore of Season Finale)
9:00/8:00c - "Hell's Kitchen" (Season Premiere)

8:00/7:00c - "The Simpsons" (R)
8:30/7:00c - "American Dad" (R)

8:00/7:00c - "On the Lot" (Due to preemption on July 10)
9:00/8:00c - "Hell's Kitchen"

8:00/7:00c - "Family Guy" (R)
8:30/7:00c - "American Dad" (R)
