Does Someone Have To Go, in which employees of troubled companies are given the opportunity to shake things up, including firing co-workers, will get a preview May 15 behind Part 1 of American Idol‘s finale before moving into its Thursday 8 PM slot May 23. Season 10 of So You Think You Can Dance kicks off May 14, taking over Fox’s Tuesday primetime where the network has been airing a comedy block this season. Displaced comedies will relocate to Mondays beginning May 20, joined by The Goodwin Games, which will air its seven-episode order. Fox has slated repeats of New Girl, Raising Hope and The Mindy Project, giving the three shows very good odds at renewal. (Networks often don’t air repeats of cancelled series over the summer.) Masterchef returns May 22 with a two-hour premiere. The network is not saying what the cooking series will be paired with it afterward. As previously announced, Fox’s new alternative animated programming block will premiere July 27, airing in the Saturday 11 PM-12:30 AM slot.

The series will wrap production today when it finishes filming Episode 6 to fulfill its reduced pickup of six episodes plus the pilot. Fox already ordered supersized 24-episode seasons of Raising Hope, New Girl and freshman The Mindy Project as well as 19 episodes of new fall comedy Ben And Kate. The reduced order for Goodwin Games, which will likely alternate with Ben And Kate, will ensure 24-26 originals for each half-hour time period of Fox’s fledgeling Tuesday comedy block this season (unless the network opts for more trimming of current orders).
