Glee is on the move.
Fox unveiled its official 2012-13 schedule this morning and the big news is the relocation of Ryan Murphy’s musical dramedy this fall to Thursdays at 9/8c following The X Factor results show (and American Idol at midseason). That timeslot’s former occupant, Kiefer Sutherland’s Touch, will shift to Fridays where it will lead into the final season of Fringe.
Among new shows, Mindy Kaling’s The Mindy Project has, as expected, landed the plum post-New Girl slot on Tuesdays at 9:30, and Jordana Spiro’s Mob Doctor will air after Bones on Monday.
On tap for midseason, in addition to American Idol, Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, The Cleveland Show and Cops: Kevin Williamson’s Kevin Bacon-fronted serial killer thriller The Following (to air Mondays) and the Scott Foley-Becki Newton comedy The Goodwin Games (to air Tuesdays).
All told, the Fox schedule looks like this; new shows are in CAPS, click for details.
