In 2016, additional new series joining the schedule include devilish drama LUCIFER and modern action series THE FRANKENSTEIN CODE; and two comedies, THE GUIDE TO SURVIVING LIFE and animated BORDERTOWN.
NEW GIRL will return to Tuesdays in January, for its first-ever season of virtually uninterrupted originals. These weekly all-new episodes will platform THE GUIDE TO SURVIVING LIFE, the new young ensemble comedy about a group of friends living together for the first time.
A new animated comedy from FAMILY GUY’s Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane, BORDERTOWN is a satirical look at the cultural shifts taking place in America.
AMERICAN IDOL will begin its 15th – and final – season this January on FOX.
As previously announced, GREASE: LIVE, a three-hour production of the massively popular crossover musical “Grease” will air LIVE Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016 on FOX.
Additional FOX series include: ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?, BOB’S BURGERS, BONES, BOOM!, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, BULLSEYE, EMPIRE, FAMILY GUY, GOTHAM, HELL’S KITCHEN, HOME FREE, THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, MASTERCHEF, MASTERCHEF JUNIOR, THE SIMPSONS, SLEEPY HOLLOW, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and WORLD’S FUNNIEST.
Full Press Release including new show descriptions
Highlights of the FOX press conference call
•Staying on Wednesday at 9PM because "We’d be crazy to move it. We want to thank and reward our fans by leaving it in is timeslot."
•Empire will have an 18 episode season 2, split into fall and winter halves. FOX will break a lot of its dramas into two halves.
•Empire cast is doing concerts this summer, more promotional efforts start in June.
•Even more big-time guest stars next season, though no names were revealed.
•Ne-Yo will write songs for season 2 along with Timbaland.
•No repeats this summer, other than streaming.
•The final season is likely to include appearances from past judges and contestants.
•Will keep its Wednesday and Thursday timeslots.
•FOX may develop more music competition shows, but the sense is that the genre needs to be reinvented to succeed.
The X Files
•Wanted to maximize exposure by giving it a NFL playoff lead-in, then running second episode the next day.
•The hope is that The X Files will help the launch of Lucifer.
•Chris Carter has not revealed to FOX much of what he has planned, storywise.
Harry Shearer fired from the Simpsons.
Shearer does Principal Skinner, Kent Brockman, Mr. Burns, Waylon Smithers, Ned Flanders, Reverend Lovejoy, Dr. Hibbert, Lenny Leonard, Otto Mann, Rainier Wolfcastle, Dr. Marvin Monroe and many others.
I really hope a Canadian network picks up the next season of Last Man on Earth. Been looking forward to that show since before it even aired.
