FOX fall TV 2013 schedule: 'New Girl' comedy night adds Seth MacFarlane and Andy Samberg; 'Raising Hope' moves to Fridays
"Bones" (fall) and "The Following" (midseason) will be joined on Monday nights by time-travel adventure thriller "Sleepy Hollow" (fall) and J.J. Abrams' new futuristic drama about android cops called "Almost Human" (late fall).
The Tuesday night comedy lineup adds Seth MacFarlane's live-action comedy "Dads" and Andy Samberg's comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" as lead-ins for returning shows "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project."
"New Girl" also has the distinction of airing in the post-Super Bowl timeslot in 2014.
Wednesday and Thursday nights stay the same, with "X Factor" or "American Idol" performances and results in the fall and spring, respectively, followed by "Glee" on Thursday nights at 9 p.m.
Fridays will see the debut of reality cooking competition show "Junior Masterchef," followed by "Sleepy Hollow" encores in early fall. In late fall, Fridays will host "Bones," "Raising Hope," and new comedy "Enlisted," a sibling comedy set on an Army base.
Midseason shows include drama "Gang Related," about Los Angeles' elite gang task force; legal drama "Rake," starring Greg Kinnear as an optimistic but self-destructive defense attorney; comedy "Surviving Jack," starring Christopher Meloni as a dad thrust into more of a fatherly role when his wife goes back to school; "Us and Them," a comedy starring Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel as a young couple whose lives are dominated by the wacky family around them; and "Murder Police," an animated cop show featuring the voices of Will Sasso and Jane Lynch.
There is also "Wayward Pines," an "event series" coming in 2014 from M. Night Shyamalan, about a Secret Service agent arriving in a small Idaho town looking for two missing feds.
Finally, FOX has added Saturday programming with Animated Domination high-def, which will air from 11 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. and include shows "Axe Cop" and "High School USA!"
