Here's the new Fox schedule with lots of big names both in front and behind the camera.

I will reprint the entire release and all the new program synopses. But I have to just take a shot at Fox chairman Peter Rice saying in the release that "nothing impacts culture the way a television show does."

Oh, really? How about a presidential election -- or attack on the World Trade Center? The tunnel vision, myopia and hype of Hollywood is astonishing even to me after 30 years of reporting and writing about it. And this from the network, by the way, that gave us "Joe Millionaire."

I have made a career out of saying how culturally powrerful television is. For decades, we have been a TV culture in some way. But some perspective, please.

With that bit of context, enjoy the hype.
