Fox Sets Season Finale Dates and Announces 2013 Summer Schedule

So You Think You Can DanceIf you’re planning your April and May 2013 television viewing schedules, then you’re way more organized than most people – or you’re really into television. For those who plan ahead, Fox has just unveiled their season finale dates as well as their 2013 summer premiere schedule. Among the shows on Fox’s schedule are the 10th season of So You Think You Can Dance and the premiere of the new unscripted series Does Someone Have to Go as well as the family comedy The Goodwin Games.
 
Does Someone Have to Go – The Details:
 
New unscripted workplace experiment Does Someone Have to Go clocks in with a special preview Wednesday, May 15 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the first night of the two-night season finale of American Idol (8:00-9:00 ET live/PT tape-delayed). In the series, which makes its time period premiere Thursday, May 23 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the boardroom doors get blown wide open when employees are given the power to make some tough decisions. Frustrated bosses will hand over the reins of their companies to the employees, offering their respective staffs a chance to make changes in the workplace – even if it means letting co-workers go. Each participating office will have its own set of issues, which will force them to take a hard look at what’s plaguing their workplace and answer the toughest question of all: DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO GO?
 
The Goodwin Games – The Details:
 
New comedy The Goodwin Games starts playing Monday, May 20 (8:30-9:00 PM), as part of a night of half-hour comedies, including encores of RAISING HOPE (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), New Girl (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and The Mindy Project (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). Starring Scott Foley, Becki Newton and T.J. Miller, the inventive family comedy tells the story of three estranged siblings who return home after the loss of their beloved father (guest star Beau Bridges), and unexpectedly find themselves poised to inherit more than $20 million – if, and only if, they can adhere to their late father’s wishes.
