Fox Announces Winter Schedule Changes

ON

The Fox network has announced schedule changes that are set to take place in early 2014.

“The Following” returns for its 14-week second season with a special two-night season premiere event, beginning Sunday, Jan. 19 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), following the NFC Championship Game (live, 6:00-10:00 PM ET). The two-night event continues with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the season finale of “Sleepy Hollow,” airing at a special time (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

New legal drama “Rake” debuts on Thursday, Jan. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following an all-new “American Idol” (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Making his broadcast television series debut, Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine, “The Kennedys”) plays a brilliant and frustratingly charming criminal defense attorney, whose chaotic and self-destructive personal life often gets in the way of his professional one.

Changes to Tuesday nights begin after “The Mindy Project” (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) airs its Winter Finale on Jan. 28. Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 4, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” moves to its new time period premiere at 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT, following all-new installments of “New Girl” (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT). “Dads” continues to kick off Tuesdays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) until Tuesday, Feb. 11.

On Tuesday, Feb. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), “Glee” moves to a new day and time and returns with all-new episodes for the remainder of the season. All-new installments of “New Girl” (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) follow, until “The Mindy Project” returns Tuesday, April 1 (9:00-9:30 and 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), with a special one-hour event featuring all-new back-to-back episodes. The series returns to its regular time period beginning Tuesday, April 8 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Additional premiere dates and schedule information to be announced.

As previously announced, new comedy “Enlisted” will debut Friday, Jan. 10 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). And, following Fox Sports’ coverage of Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, Feb. 2 (6:00-10:30 ET live), an all-new episode of “New Girl” will air (10:30-11:00 PM ET/7:30-8:00 PM PT), followed by an all-new episode of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (11:00-11:30 PM ET/8:00-8:30 PM PT).
