Series

Fox made a last-minute decision Monday to join ABC, CBS and NBC in postponing its fall premieres. The new series "Undeclared" and "Love Cruise," scheduled to debut tonight, were pulled. Instead, there are back-to-back episodes of That '70s Show (8 p.m., Fox), and reruns of The Simpsons (9 p.m.) and King of the Hill (9:30 p.m.). Big Brother 2 (9 p.m., CBS) has its two-hour penultimate episode. An ABC News Special Report (10 p.m., ABC) airs each night this week to recap the latest on the terrorist attack and its aftermath.
