Fox Moves BONES to Mondays, TOUCH to Thursdays
February 27, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
Well, I hope you weren’t attached to the last schedule Fox released, because things are changing — BONES is returning to its former Monday night spot and TOUCH will now air Thursdays after AMERICAN IDOL.
In addition, the special 25th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL has been bumped back a few weeks, THE FINDER is ending its run a little earlier than planned, and there’s a HOUSE special in the works.
Take a look at the press release…
“FOX announces revisions to its Monday and Thursday spring schedule, as well as the air date for FOX’s 25th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL and the addition of a HOUSE retrospective leading into the show’s momentous series finale.
TOUCH, the distinctive new drama created by Tim Kring (“Heroes”) and starring Kiefer Sutherland (“24”), will world premiere Thursday, March 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following American Idol results shows (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed). Don’t miss an encore of the TOUCH preview episode Thursday, March 15 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
On Monday, April 2 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Bones moves to a new night and time. In the spring premiere, an expectant Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) are at odds over plans for the upcoming birth of their daughter. Meanwhile, a neighborhood is on edge when remains are found in the sewer, clogging up local plumbing lines.
Also on Monday, April 2, HOUSE moves to a new time (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) with all-new episodes leading up to House’s final diagnosis. A retrospective special looking back at the last eight years of the seminal series will air Monday, May 21 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), followed by the thrilling series finale (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Additional details regarding the special to be announced soon.
FOX’s 25th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL is set to air Sunday, April 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The exciting event will celebrate the shows and the stars of FOX’s 25-year history, from its earliest days as a bold, brazen upstart to its current standing as the No. 1 network among Adults 18-49.
The Finder will have its spring finale Thursday, March 8 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and will return later in the season with all-new episodes. Alcatraz continues with all-new episodes Mondays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) throughout March, with the previously announced special two-hour episode Monday, March 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and the arresting two-hour season finale on Monday, March 26 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).”
