"The Jeff Foxworthy Show" is sort of this season's flagship for change - the sort of change that returning televisions shows are going through at this time of year.

"Foxworthy" is changing time slots. It's changing networks. It's changing setting. It's changing most of its cast.Other than that, it's pretty much the same old show.

It would be easier to tell you what hasn't changed about "Foxworthy." Jeff is still the star, and Haley Joel Osment returns as his 9-year-old son.

But, in addition to moving from ABC to NBC (Mondays, 7 p.m., Ch. 5), the series' setting has moved from Indiana to Georgia; Jeff has a new job (he'll be a loading dock foreman); he's got a new wife (Ann Cusack replaces Anita Barone); G.W. Bailey joins the cast as Jeff's much-married father; and instead of one kid, Jeff will have two - Jonathan William Lipnicki plays the just-added 5-year-old son.

Just a few minor alterations - all done, of course, in the pursuit of increased ratings.

"Foxworthy" is one of three shows that's moving from one network to another. "Brotherly Love" has left NBC for the WB, and "In the House" has gone from NBC to UPN.

In addition, two other shows will return as midseason replacements on different networks - "JAG" goes from NBC to CBS and "The Naked Truth" shifts from ABC to NBC.

If that's not confusing enough, 25 other shows on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, UPN and the WB are getting new time slots - moving to new nights and/or times.

And, of course, lots of returning shows make changes - both major and minor - to try to stay fresh. And to try to improve their ratings.

Here's a quick look at what to expect:

Almost Perfect (Wednesdays, 8 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2): One of last year's stars, Nancy Travis, is back. The other, Kevin Kilner, is being written out in the season premiere. And the show will focus on Travis' character and her job as a TV producer.

Boy Meets World (Fridays, 8:30 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4): Cory's older brother, Eric, goes off to college.

Brotherly Love (Sundays, 6:30 p.m., WB/Ch. 30): Not only has this show changed networks, but expect a change in the show's direction as well. Instead of romance storylines for heart-throb Joey Lawrence's character, the stories will emphasize the relationship among the brothers. Joe's relationship with Lou will, however, heat up.

Caroline in the City (Tuesdays, 8:30 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): Caroline has to work out new personal relationships with Del, her ex-fiance, and Richard, her lovesick assistant.

Ellen (Wednesdays, 7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4): Ellen's life is rocked when her parents' marriage breaks up. She decides to sell her bookstore, buy a house and put down roots. But, as manager of the bookstore she used to own, she clashes with the new corporate boss. And the romance between Paige (Joely Fisher) and Spence (Jeremy Piven) heats up.

ER (Thursdays, 9 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): Laura Innes becomes a full-time cast member this season as Dr. Kerry Weaver.

Family Matters (Fridays, 7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4): Frighteningly enough, Urkel's clone - the suave Stefan Urquelle - will now be a regular character. And he begins a romance with Laura. The Winslows become foster parents to a young boy.

Fire Co. 132 (Sundays, 6 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13): Formerly known as "L.A. Firefighters," this show will return sometime in November with three new cast members - Rob Youngblood, Alexandra Paul and Jensen Daggett - who play a helicopter pilot, a female firefighter and an emergency room doctor, respectively. The show will also emphasize action over soap opera-ish plotlines.

Friends (Thursdays, 7 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): Look for some bumps in Ross and Rachel's road to romance. Oh, and the stars will all be a lot better paid this season.

The John Larroquette Show (Wednesdays, 7:30 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): John and ex-hooker Carly begin their lives as a married couple. And Alison LaPlaca is leaving the series after the season premiere.

Kirk (Sundays, 6 p.m., WB/Ch. 30): In the show's season premiere, Kirk (Kirk Cameron) suddenly marries the object of his desires, his gorgeous neighbor, Elizabeth (Cameron's real-life wife, Chelsea Noble).

Law & Order (Wednesdays, 9 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): The latest of many cast changes brings Carey Lowell aboard as assistant district attorney Jamie Ross. (She replaces Jill Hennessy, who left at the end of last season of her own accord.)
