Fox has moved Almost Human’s premiere from November 4th to make it a two-night event and goose its potential audience by scheduling its first episode immediately after NFL on Fox on Sunday, November 17th. The series will then premiere in its regular timeslot on Monday, November 18th at 8/7C.
Bones, which usually airs in the 8/7C timeslot on Mondays will move to Fridays on November 15th. Returning half-hour comedy Raising Hope will return for its fourth season premiere airing of two episodes following Bones on the 15th. Follow the jump for the press release – including schedule updates.
Fox has pulled quirky, brother & sister comedy Ben amd Kate from its schedule effective immediately. Until Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen returns on March 12, Raising Hope (an equally quirky, but much less funny series) will pull double duty with new ‘one-hour’ episodes on January 29 and February 5 and 26th. New episodes of New Girl and The Mindy Project will continue in their regular timeslots.
Full details of the hastily rejigged schedule – complete with episode taglines – follow the jump.
Fans of Fox series – like Bones, Fringe and New Girl – might want to mark their calendars. Fox announced the season finales for thirteen of their sixteen series – and the series finale for House, today.
Check out the full press release following the jump.
Richard Dean Anderson, who is best known for his roles as the intrepid, resourceful MacGyver from the series of the same name and the Gate traveling, alien fighting Colonel Jack O’Neill of Stargate: SG1, will make a guest star appearance in the fourth episode of the second season of the FOX comedy, ‘Raising Hope’.
In the successful FOX comedy, ‘Raising Hope’, Lucas Neff plays Jimmy Chance; a man who becomes a single parent to an infant girl named Hope after the mother he had a one-night stand with ends up on death row.
Anderson, who is a father of one daughter in real life, will be playing the role of Keith, a very protective father who sees Jimmy talking to the man’s daughter at Howdy’s. Only hearing part of the conversation being had with his young daughter, Keith becomes suspicious that Jimmy is coming on his little girl. Keith’s young daughter will be played by Richard Dean Anderson’s real life thirteen year old daughter, Wylie Quinn Annarose Anderson.
The second season of ‘Raising Hope’ premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 9:30 PM, right after the Zooey Deschanel lead freshman comedy ‘New Girl. The Anderson’s are set to appear in the fourth episode
