Mlb to Disrupt FOX's Fall Rollout
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- FOX's coverage of the MLB playoffs will once again prove to be a double-edge sword this fall.

While not mentioned among its premiere dates released today, each night of the network's fall schedule will be disrupted at least once due to baseball with most getting hit twice if the best-of-seven series run extra games.

The potentially hardest hit will be Thursdays and Saturdays with up to three pre-emptions, while Tuesdays and Fridays will sit out just one week at most.

Here's a breakdown of each night's affected dates, all of which are subject to change:

Mondays ("House," "Lie to Me")
October 19 (ALCS Game #3)
November 2 (World Series Game #5, if necessary)

Tuesdays ("So You Think You Can Dance")
October 20 (ALCS Game #4)

Wednesdays ("So You Think You Can Dance," "Glee")
October 28 (World Series Game #1)
November 4 (World Series Game #6, if necessary)

Thursdays ("Bones," "Fringe")
October 22 (ALCS Game #5, if necessary)
October 29 (World Series Game #2)
November 5 (World Series Game #7, if necessary)

Fridays ("Brothers," "'Til Death," "Dollhouse")
October 16 (ALCS Game #1)

Saturdays ("Cops," "America's Most Wanted")
October 17 (ALCS Game #2)
October 24 (ALCS Game #6, if necessary)
October 31 (World Series Game #3)

Sundays ("The Simpsons," "The Cleveland Show," "Family Guy," "American Dad")
October 25 (ALCS Game #7, if necessary)
November 1 (World Series Game #4)

TBS is home to this year's coverage of the NLCS as well as the Divisional Series.
