Fox Drops Reality Shows, Brings Back Sitcom Repeats; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 16, 2014)

Fox

Fox has dropped its original reality series line-up for Tuesdays effective immediately. Reality series Riot and I Wanna Marry "Harry" both struggled badly in the ratings. Only 4 episodes each of both series aired, with 4 episodes remain left to air for both. All of the unaired episodes of I Wanna Marry "Harry" will be made available for early preview via Fox.com, Fox On Demand, FOX NOW and Hulu starting this afternoon PT, June 13. No word on if Fox will do the same for Riot. Beginning Tuesday, June 17, Fox will air repeats of comedies that will represent the Tuesday night lineup through the remainder of the summer. Repeats of Family Guy will lead it off at 8pm, followed by freshman comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine at 8:30pm, New Girl at 9 and The Mindy Project rounds the night out at 9:30pm. That's all for now, but enjoy the return of comedies on Fox Tuesday for the rest of the summer.
