FOX has just announced finale dates for several of its 2011-2012 shows, including "American Idol", "Glee", "Bones", "Fringe" and "Family Guy" (which will have a special hour-long season-ender on May 20). In addition, the network has announced that the series finale of "House" will air on May 21, in a two-hour block that will be made up of a retrospective from 8-9 PM and the show's final episode from 9-10.

"American Idol", meanwhile, will air its final "performance showdown" on a special night - Tuesday, May 22 at 8 PM - directly followed by "Glee"'s third-season finale at 9. "Idol" will crown its Season 11 winner with a two-hour grand finale the following night.
