Fox’s Summer Schedule a Snooze

Fox Broadcasting released its summer schedule today, and it looks like it will be pretty much filled with new episodes of returning reality shows and repeats of scripted series. 

On Thursday, May 26, the News Corp.-owned network premieres its eighth cycle of So You Think You Can Dance. On June 6, cooking competition show MasterChef returns for a second season, airing two nights a week—on Mondays and Tuesdays.
