FOX officially unwrapped its Fall schedule on Monday, May 18 and some worthy to take notes are the bold move they make with "Fringe" and what's behind the cancellation of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles". Other than that, the network has announced several changes as well as their plan for 2010 midseason.

Instead of Tuesdays, "Fringe" will go for Thursdays on the second season, meaning it will challenge ABC's "Grey's Anatomy", NBC's "The Office" and CBS' "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" at the 9 P.M. time slot. It will be preceded by "Bones" that retains its regular slot. But changes are bound to happen for FOX is the first to announce its line-up and other networks are to follow throughout this week.

Meanwhile "Terminator" is definitely a goner. "It was not an inexpensive show," Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly explained. "We looked at ratings track where it had a consistent run. That trend line was not pointing in the right direction. We did a huge launch with that show. It was time to move on." The vacant slot will be filled by "Dollhouse" with the lead-in from half-hour shows "Brothers" and "'Til Death".

On Mondays, "House M.D." will still take the 8 P.M. slot, paired with the second season of "Lie to Me". On Tuesdays, FOX is confident enough with two-hours of "So You Think You Can Dance". It will take the schedule left by "American Idol" which wraps up this Spring, having its one-hour result show on Wednesdays. New musical "Glee" will follow "Dance" after the result night.

Wanda Sykes' new talk show is put on Saturday nights at 11 P.M. while "The Simpsons", "The Cleveland Show", "Family Guy" and "American Dad" are cramped on the Sunday line-up.

The midseason 2010 schedule meanwhile, is reserved for "House M.D." and "24" on Mondays, "American Idol" and new drama "Past Life" on Tuesdays, "Idol" result show and new show "Human Target" on Wednesdays, and "Sons of Tucson" on Sundays. The rest is planned to remain intact from the Fall schedule.

Fox ReallY??? Just bump off Terminator, hang'n like this? No story wrap up? Just dumping the show, ending it at a major cliff hangger?? What Is Wrong with you people @FOX??? Dollhouse is a good show, yet how can that kind of story line keep any long term holding power? When placing a Good show on Fri nights is almost the kiss of death for it!! Most people are going out, hiting the town, going to the theater. How can Fox expact any show to hold the same rating #'s when 1st starting out sometime early week, then moving it to Fri. nights? No way can any show hold the same ##'s on a Fri night vs Mon, Tues or Wens. I;d Much Rather watch Terminator way over 2 nighting in a row of ANY Reality show. Put So you think you can dance & American Idol on Fri nights!! I'd bet their rating #'s Will drop just cause of airing on a Friday!!!

I can't believe they canceled my favorite show "Terminator". What can we say to get it back on? I tried watching dollhouse and it really isn't very good (per dollhouse sucks- it does suck.) At least one more season so we can have closure.
