Fox trots 'Dance' into fall

Hoofer showcase may partner with 'Glee'

Fox is dancing into the fall, adding an in-season edition of summer reality series “So You Think You Can Dance” to its fall schedule, sources said.

The network and producer 19 Entertainment this week started casting for the first- ever fall “Dance.”

Fox may be summoning the hit summer series to fall duty to help launch its heavily promoted new music comedy series “Glee.”

“Dance’”s performance show is rumored to stay on Wednesday, leading into “Glee.”

“Bones,” whose renewal is pending, is expected to stay on Thursday, possibly paired with “Dance” result show. “Hell’s Kitchen,” may also return to the Thursday 9 p.m. time slot where it performed so well this season, perhaps in midseason.

Newly renewed midseason drama “Lie To Me” could get one of the cushiest Fox slots -- Monday 9 p.m., following powerhouse “House.”

“Fringe” may stay on Tuesday, paired with hot new comic book drama “Human Target.”

Meanwhile, “Dollhouse” -- which the network just renewed for another season -- is expected to stay on Fridays.

Sunday's animated lineup will feature newcomer "Cleveland" joining veterans "The Simpsons," "Family Guy" and "American Dad."

Meanwhile, newly picked up live-action comedies "Sons of Tucson" and "Brothers" are expected to be held back until midseason.

Fox will announce its official schedule Monday at its upfront presentation to advertisers in New York.
