Fox is announcing schedule changes, set to take place in early 2014.
Last season's No. 1 new series, The Following, returns for its thrilling 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).
Bold 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 makes Tuesdays sing when it 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.
