Fox's 2014-2015 Schedule: A Sunday Shake-up, Gotham With Sleepy Hollow, and Glee MIA

Fox has unveiled its new fall schedule, which finds Animation Domination getting a little less animated, Bones on the move (again!), and Glee missing in action. 

One of the bigger surprises of the network's new schedule is that the network is adding two live-action comedies to its Sunday-night lineup, which has been exclusively devoted to animated programming for the last several years. The block formerly known as Animated Domination will now feature the sophomore season of the Golden Globe-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine 8:30pm, preceded by Bob's Burgers and The SimpsonsFamily Guy will air at 9pm, followed by new comedy Mulaney—which stars comedian and former Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney—at 9:30pm.

On Monday nights, the new Batman prequel Gotham (watch the first trailer here!) will take over the 8pm time slot, followed by the second season of Sleepy Hollow at 9pm. 

New reality series Utopia—which sends 15 people to an isolated, undeveloped location for an entire year and challenges them to create their own civilization—will kick off Tuesday nights at 8pm, followed by New Girl and The Mindy Project at 9pm and 9:30pm, respectively. 

On Wednesday, the Octavia Spencer-starring coming-of-age drama Red Band Society airs at 8pm, followed by Hell's Kitchen at 9pm.

After testing out the waters on pretty much every night of Fox's schedule, Bones is returning to Thursday nights at 8pm, where it aired during its fourth, fifth, and part of its sixth seasons. It will be followed by Gracepoint—Fox's 10-episode adaptation of the U.K. series Broadchurch that stars Anna Gunn and David Tennant—at 9pm. 

Closing out the week on Fridays are Masterchef Junior at 8pm, and a second new episode of Utopia (the show will air twice a week for its first six weeks) at 9pm. 

Glee's sixth and final season is currently unscheduled. New series Backstrom, EmpireHieroglyphLast Man on Earth, Bordertown, and Weird Loners, as well as the event series Wayward Pines and a live version of the Broadway musical Grease, will debut in 2015. Live special Jump of the Century is slated for fall.

    Looking forward to Gracepoint, if it ever gets shown in the UK. Broadchurch was a good story with plenty of twists and turns, but included in the cast were some of the most irritating of all British actors. I'm hoping that the US cast is stronger.

    Is Cabot College still going ahead?

  • antdude May 13, 2014

    What about Cosmos?

  • ArkhamNative May 17, 2014

    There are still 3 episodes left, but I would very much like to see Cosmos return if it can continue to reveal wonders and entertain as well as it has. I do hope the show creators have a "success" plan, because I thought ratings were pretty good. But Cosmos was apparently 20 years in the making, so I worry we may not see more for years, if ever.

  • antdude May 17, 2014

    Ratings are doing well? I am surprised.

  • jjafargi May 13, 2014

    Broadchurch with Skyler White? NO THANK YOU!

  • irehawk20 May 13, 2014

    I think Glee should be put on Friday Nights, no offense.

  • terminaltrip421 May 13, 2014

    does 'schedule' not imply starting or air-dates?

  • amf9933 May 13, 2014

    Where's 24? Everyone loves Jack Bauer, Dammit!

  • irehawk20 May 14, 2014

    Please watch your language, thank you. 24 will come.

  • littlebitliz May 12, 2014

    I'm only interested in Gotham, but I will probably give it a pass until/unless it's confirmed renewed for a second season.

  • shocker713 May 12, 2014

    Y'know what gets it renewed? Actually watching it.

  • littlebitliz May 13, 2014

    I've already explained this elsewhere, but too bad, basically. I got burned with Almost Human; not risking it again. At least if it doesn't get renewed, I won't have seen it and won't miss it.

  • KevinG87 May 13, 2014

    that's only true if you take part in the Nielsen ratings system, otherwise what the average TV watcher actually watches doesn't matter at all to the networks.

  • littlebitliz May 13, 2014

    And this. Don't have a Nielsen box.

  • Whatifnuts May 12, 2014

    I might give Gotham a try but other than that nothing of interest.

  • Akyriel May 12, 2014

    I watch most everything through On Demand or Hulu now, so the schedule, for me, is meaningless. That said, and I do not watch Brooklyn 9-9 at all, B99 needs to switch places with Family Guy. Going from animation to live action to animation is just off in some way. Besides, Family Guy leading into B99 may actually help B99 more, as Family Guy is Sunday's most successful show, as far as I know.
