Fox Summer Lineup News

Fox announced the return of "So You Think You Can Dance," another round of "Hell's Kitchen" and a new scripted psych ward drama called "Mental" for the summer.

The postseason lineup launches a little early, in late May, something NBC is doing too as networks jockey to premiere their next round of programming while viewing levels are still high. Fox also is rolling out "Don't Forget the Lyrics" and "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader."

"Dance" has a two-night four-hour premiere starting Thursday, May 21, and Wednesday, May 27. Once auditions conclude, two-hour weekly performance shows will air Wednesdays at 8 p.m. with one-hour results shows on Thursdays at 9 p.m.

"Mental" will air Fridays at 9 p.m., debuting May 22. "Lyrics" will serve as "Mental's" lead-in at 8 p.m. launching the same day, and will be swapped with "Grader" starting July 3.

"Hell's" is airing back-to-back installments this year and will return with a two-hour debut on Tuesday, July 21 at 8 p.m. Also, Saturday night staples "Cops" and "America's Most Wanted" will continue into the summer.

There's no new reality shows listed here, though that could change -- and likely will the summer gets closer.
