Calling its 2013-14 schedule Fox's “biggest investment in original programming in our history,” Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly on Monday presented the network's plans to launch original shows over all 12 months of the year. The schedule includes five new comedies, four dramas and the network's first “event” series, “Wayward Pines” from M. Night Shyamalan. Reilly also confirmed that the network would bring back “24” as a limited-run event series. Other highlights of the schedule include “New Girl” getting the post-Super Bowl slot for 2014 and “Glee” taking a...

Prince Harry actually agreeing to be on reality TV. Totally bonkers, right? Well, not to the contestants on Fox's “I Wanna Marry 'Harry,' “ which premieres at 8 p.m. Tuesday. The show finds 13 American women moving into a castle under the pretense of possibly meeting their Prince Charming. What they don't know is that said royal is actually Matthew Hicks, a 24-year-old British environmental consultant who just happens to look quite a bit like the U.K.'s cheekiest redhead. So just how convincing is this non-royal charmer?

Fox got "24" fans fired up for the return of Jack Bauer with a series of spots on Super Bowl Sunday.

Legendary rapper/producer The RZA (real name: Robert Diggs) is no stranger to the acting game. After turns in films like “Coffee and Cigarettes” and on shows like “Californication,” he now plays veteran cop Cassius Green in the new Fox series “Gang Related.” RedEye talked to him about the new series and how his rapping and acting worlds collide. On “Gang Related” your character, Cassius Green, is a veteran cop. In the Wu-Tang Clan, you've always acted as an elder statesman and leader.

Lucas Neff wants you to tune in to his Fox comedy, "Raising Hope," and he offered an extra incentive to watch the March 13 episode. "You have me getting spanked a lot," he told me Sunday at the Coffee Studio in Andersonville. (Watch the video above.) The Chicago native is back in town helping shepherd to the stage a play he's written, "The Last Duck. " The Jackalope Theatre Company is doing the play, his first to be produced, and will premiere it at the ViaDuct Theatre March 22-23.

Don't get used to "The Goodwin Games," Fox's new comedy about three damaged siblings competing for their dad's $23 million estate. I don't think it will be around very long. It seems fairly obvious Fox isn't committed to the sitcom ( 7:30 p.m. CT May 20, Fox; 1.5 stars out of 3 ). The network pushed it from the fall 2012 schedule, then reportedly cut its 13-episode order to seven. Now it's burning off the episodes on Monday nights with repeats of "Raising Hope," "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project.

Apparently the programmers at Fox think American viewers are still buzzing in a tryptophan-fueled, post-Thanksgiving feast euphoria. What other reason do they have to subject us to “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” ( 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Fox; 1 star ) so late in the Fall TV season? Oh yeah, because they wanted to bury this turkey for as long as they possibly could. Sad to say, another round of Black Friday madness would deliver more laughs than this brainless new sitcom. Jaime Pressly and Katie Finneran are wasted as single...

In the past decade, the Zuffa-owned Ultimate Fighting Championship has made considerable strides in pushing mixed martial arts further into the mainstream. And at 8 p.m. Saturday, the UFC makes its debut on Fox in a move that should serve to show even more people what MMA is all about. When the UFC was shopping for TV deals, there was a lot of interest regarding who would take the brand to the next level. There were conversations with old broadcast partner Spike TV, and there were rumblings that the UFC simply would create its own network.

I never thought we would see the day when the Muppets would have to defend themselves against accusations of pushing a liberal agenda. But sure enough, during a press conference to promote their new movie last month, Kermit and Miss Piggy found themselves doing just that. For anyone who hasn't seen the movie, the villain is an oil baron named Tex Richman who wants to destroy the Muppet studios in order to dig for oil. Shortly after the movie debuted in November, a conservative guest on a Fox News program claimed the Muppets were brainwashing kids with anti-corporate...

Poor Prince Harry. He's such a loser in love that he has to turn to a reality show to find a woman. Or so Fox would have you believe. The network somehow managed to convince 12 single American idiots girls that "average English bloke" Matthew Hicks--who sort of looks like Prince Harry--actually is Prince Harry, and that they might actually marry into the royal family. "I Wanna Marry 'Harry'" premieres 7 p.m. May 27, and promises to be a hoot, at least for the first few episodes.
