FOX summer schedule: Dancing, cooking and reruns

cat-deeley-sytycd-s7-320.jpgFOX is keeping its summer schedule fairly simple this year, sticking with a few proven franchises for its original content and loading up on reruns.

The network will roll out new seasons of "So You Think You Can Dance," "MasterChef" and "Hell's Kitchen" starting in late May. "SYTYCD" will be first up with a two-hour premiere on Thursday, May 26, then settle into its usual Wednesday performance-Thursday results pattern once the audition rounds are over. Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy are returning as full-time judges, and they'll be joined by a rotating group of guest judges. Cat Deeley is back as host.

"MasterChef" begins its second season on Monday, June 6 and will air at 8 p.m. ET Mondays and Tuesdays. You'll be able to get a double dose of Gordon Ramsay on Tuesdays starting July 19, when the latest edition of "Hell's Kitchen" debuts.
