Fox has announced a few schedule updates and changes for the upcoming winter calendar.  Briefly:

  • Season two of The Following now gets a two-night premiere on Sunday, January 19th and Monday, January 20th, following the season finale of Sleepy Hollow.
  • The new drama series Rake, starring Greg Kinnear, will now make its series debut on Thursday, January 23rd instead of getting the post-NFC Championship slot on January 19th.  Sam Raimi directed the pilot.
  • Glee is moving back to Tuesday nights starting February 25th, which will result in Brooklyn Nine-Nine shifting to the 9:30pm timeslot starting February 4th.
  • As a result of the Glee shift, Fox is pulling Tuesday comedies The Mindy Project and Dads from the schedule.  The Mindy Project will have a “winter finale” on January 28th but will return on April 1st.  Dads, however, will be pulled from Tuesdays effective February 11th and does not yet have a return date scheduled.
