Fox Announces Fall Schedule: Creates Comedy-Packed Tuesdays, Moves Glee to Thursdays
Fox announced its 2012-13 schedule this morning (May 14) with few surprises.
The network will continue its comedy-packed Tuesday night block with returning favorites Raising Hope and New Girl. Mindy Kaling’s new comedy, The Mindy Project, will also air on Tuesday night along with brother-sister comedy Ben & Kate.
After being booted out of a Tuesday night spot by the slew of half-hour comedies, Glee will air on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET, following the X Factor results show in the fall and the American Idol results show midseason. Both talent competitions will air their regular shows on Wednesday nights.
Monday will be devoted to dramas on Fox with Bones at 8 p.m. ET and House’s replacement medical drama, The Mob Doctor, at 9 p.m. ET.
Touch, the supernatural thriller starring Kiefer Sutherland, will move from Thursday to Friday night where the network hopes its small but devoted audience will follow. J.J. Abrams’ Fringe, which will embark on its fifth and final season, will join the drama on Friday nights.
As usual, Sundays will be packed with cartoons like Family Guy and The Simpsons.
