Fox's Unveils Its 2013-2014 Primetime Schedule
Fox released it's new primetime schedule for 2012-2013 this morning, and unlike NBC, there's not nearly as much movement. "Sleepy Hollow" has been added to Mondays in the fall, and two new sitcoms have taken the 8-9 slot on Tuesdays in front of "New Girl." Meanwhile, the brilliant "Raising Hope" has, sadly, been moved to Fridays, starting in late fall. The quirky Greg Kinnear legal drama will give "Glee" a midseason spell, and "Bones" will also move to Friday in late fall to make room for "Almost Human."
New shows "Gang Related," "Surviving Jack," "Us & Them," and "Murder Police" will bow at midseason, while "New Girl" has been given the post-"Super Bowl" slot this year.
