  Fading in ratings, Fox bets on a late surge
The Super Bowl is not an annual Fox property, of course, but the network needs it especially now, because of the pit it dug for itself in the past four months.
The network has lost about 8 percent of its viewers from a year ago (8.5 million, down from 9.2 million), but Fox, like NBC and ABC, cares most about viewers between ages 18 and 49 because advertisers pay a premium to reach that group.
Beyond "Idol" and football, Fox is also counting on a strong comeback for "24," the much-admired drama, which returns Sunday and Monday with the first four of 24 hours of original episodes, as well as new episodes of "The Simple Life," featuring Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie taking on various jobs as interns.

The new top executive of Fox television said on Friday the struggling network is moving to a year-round programming cycle, marking the latest bid by a major broadcaster to break from the traditional September-to-May TV season.
But the move also is driven by Fox's own coverage of the major league baseball playoffs in the fall, a fact of life that has made it hard for the News Corp. Ltd.-owned network to stick with a conventional timetable for season premieres.
Fox is banking much of its immediate future on an upcoming third edition of the talent show sensation "American Idol," which helped transform the network's ratings from mediocre to marvelous in the second half of last season.

So while it is still early in the new Fox regime, one thing seems certain: given the impact Fox had on the cable scene, its interest in local stations is bound to change the landscape of local television news.

The Fox executives repeatedly promised favorable, albeit unspecified, revenue splits, and said there would be no "reverse compensation" -- meaning the affiliates would not be charged for My Network TV programming.
