THE BOX - FOXY Scheduling leaves this viewer confused and infuriated

FOX has introduced numerous schedules to advertisers and the trades this week all of which has my head spinning. I mean, I would like to watch some of these shows, if I could only figure out when they are on.

Okay, so, The O.C. could move from Wednesdays to Thursdays at 8 p.m. which would solve the thursday night dilema. This would also force a move with WB's The Mountain to relocate to Wednesday at 9 p.m. (thus making Angel's demise slightly more just).

While we've all heard that Family Guy is likely to return thanks to hot ratings on the cartoon network and DVD sales, most likely, March is the soonest we could expect. Good news is the FG creators also have American Dad slated to debut around the same time.

The worst news of all, is a delay in 24 til 2005. It was a dumb move for ABC to pull this with Alias and even dumber for Fox to make this move with 24... not to mention shifting it's day and time to Mondays at 9 p.m. which would put it up again Las Vegas on NBC and Raymond on CBS, and some crap on ABC. While the day move means I might have something of interest to watch on Monday nights, the January move is unfair. I'm an American damit... don't tell me patience is a virtue!

And a scary "Arrested" development in scheduling also arises... where is Arrested Development? It's been given the go ahead, yet it has not scheduling position. Fox, Fox, Fox... How I long for those simple summer seasons of 90210 at the beach where things were easy, simple, and predictable.
