When the World Series concludes and the November Sweep approaches, FOX offers a brand-new game and makes some lineup changes of its own. The network will unveil THE RICH LIST, an exciting new quiz show where teams of strangers use knowledge and strategy to complete lists that can win them limitless amounts of money. Hosted by Eamonn Holmes, Britain's well-known morning TV personality, THE RICH LIST premieres Wednesday, Nov. 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) following BONES.
In addition, two new FOX dramas will move to new nights after Baseball. Court will be in session on Mondays for the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced legal drama JUSTICE beginning Monday, Oct. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the hit series PRISON BREAK. And suspenseful VANISHED takes the search for Sara Collins to Fridays beginning Friday, Oct. 27 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), leading into new episodes of TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY.

In THE RICH LIST, total strangers are thrown together to form two teams of two who compete against each other by filling in missing answers on a particular list. Wide-ranging topics could be films directed by Steven Spielberg, hit singles by ABBA or states with a coastline. Contestants bid upwards against each other while predicting how many examples of a particular subject they will be able to list. If a team fails to list as many answers as they predicted, the other team wins the round. The winners of the best of three lists move on to play "The Rich List," a new game of list-making where increasing amounts of money are up for grabs; however, make a single mistake and they lose it all. But it doesn't end there on THE RICH LIST - if you keep winning, you keep playing. The champions return to face a new set of opponents and try to win even more money in a potentially endless number of games.
PRISON BREAK returns with "Dead Fall" Monday, Oct. 23 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Scofield has his hands full when Sucre turns traitor and escapes with the newly found $5 million; Mahone is investigated by Internal Affairs regarding Tweener's death; Lincoln is determined to reunite with LJ, but may be walking into The Company's trap; and Sarah must fight for her life when the conspiracy tries to make history repeat itself.
As JUSTICE makes its time period premiere, the firm of TNT&G represents a teenage outcast who is accused of the ritualistic murder of the school bully in the "Crucified" episode Monday, Oct. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
And on the time period premiere of VANISHED Friday, Oct. 27 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), titled Aftermath, the mystery continues after the shocking events that transpired when Senator Collins visited Washington, DC, for Judge Wallace Rainer's confirmation hearing and Agent Graham Kelton (Gale Harold) was gunned down and killed. Meanwhile, newcomer Agent Daniel Lucas (Eddie Cibrian) contributes to the investigation into Sara Collins' baffling disappearance.
On the time period premiere of STANDOFF Tuesday, Oct. 31 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), titled "Man of Steele," a surrogate mother scams a desperate husband out $50,000 for her newborn baby.

In the HOUSE episode "Fools for Love" Tuesday, Oct. 31 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), House treats a young married couple who have similar symptoms, but when he uncovers the cause of their mysterious illness, they are both left in shock.

"The Girl with the Curl" episode of BONES on Wednesday, Nov. 1 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) finds Brennan and Booth investigating the death of Brianna Swanson, a young beauty queen whose decomposed remains are discovered at a Washington, DC, water filtration plant. Brianna's father is a suspect initially, but new clues lead Brennan and Booth to Brianna's dance school, where they glean key information. Meanwhile, Hodgins works up the nerve to ask Angela out on a date and after contemplating the pros and cons of dating a coworker, she agrees to go.
