It's that time of year again, when the major networks begin picking up pilots and making final decisions on struggling series. FOX and NBC have already greenlit a number of new shows and taken others to the woodshed, but some of FOX's latest may surprise you: Seth MacFarlane's controversial 'Dads' is no more, along with the critically-adored 'Enlisted,' Rake,' and Christopher Meloni's 'Surviving Jack.'
Though we still have a month or so of programming left, FOX has already begun making some major changes in its midseason lineup that may bode ill for previously safe offerings. 'Glee' in particular will move out of its Thursday slot back to Tuesdays, while oft-maligned Seth MacFarlane comedy 'Dads' will undergo a hiatus in 2014, alongside new episodes of 'The Mindy Project.'
FOX got a hefty amount of business taken care of today, not the least of which will surely have the internet talking, as Seth MacFarlane's controversial 'Dads' has been given a full season order to continue its equal opportunity offending. Meanwhile, the network has also plotted 'The Following's January premiere to coincide with the 'Sleepy Hollow' finale, a spring break for 'Glee' and more!
FOX has officially joined the ranks of broadcast networks to release their fall 2013-2014 premiere schedule, leaving ABC the lone holdout. Among the bigger changes on deck for the network, 'The X-Factor' will debut over two nights with a solid four hours, while 'Bones' moves to Fridays in November, and the much buzzed-about '24' revival '24: Live Another Day' has a semi-official premiere date set for May 2014.
After announcing their fall lineup this morning, FOX has officially doled out the full trailers of its major 2013-14 offerings. Among the new showings, we have J.J. Abrams' futuristic robot cop drama 'Almost Human' looking slick, cop comedy gets the 'Parks and Rec' treatment for 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' Greg Kinnear's 'Rakes,' and 'Gavin & Stacey' comes to the US as 'Us & Them'!

Just yesterday NBC officially announced its fall schedule, complete with new additions to the lineup and a few shuffles of existing series, while today FOX has joined the fray. Not only will '24' return in 2014, but FOX will also move 'Bones and 'Raising Hope' to Fridays, giving new series from J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman places to shine!

Earlier tonight we heard that FOX had picked up four major new dramas to series, though the network's announcements are far from over. FOX has also granted series orders to 'SNL' vet Andy Samberg's new detective comedy 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' under 'Parks and Recreation' showrunner Mike Schur,' along with Seth MacFarlane's 'Dads' and three others. Get the inside scoop on FOX's new comedy lineup inside!
Though already ordered to series, Seth MacFarlane's first live-action TV project 'Dads' has already garnered a significant amount of attention without so much as a single aired episode. Now, with its pilot episode already in the can, we're hearing that the series will undergo a major change by replacing lead actor Tommy Dewey with MacFarlane favorite Giovanni Ribisi, but what other changes can we expect before 'Dads' makes it to air?
Recent Oscars host and animation magnate Seth MacFarlane might be branching out into live-action TV, but not everything about the 'Ted' creator's latest work will feel unfamiliar. After years of voicing Chris Griffin on MacFarlane's FOX flagship 'Family Guy' and taking playful potshots at one another with regard to 'Robot Chicken,' Seth Green has officially joined the cast of MacFarlane's upcoming live-action sitcom 'Dads.' Find out what brings the Seths together inside!
Between the ongoing success of 'Family Guy,' 'American Dad,' 'The Cleveland Show,' 'Ted' and his upcoming gig hosting the Oscars, Seth MacFarlane has the world by a string. And with live-action success at the box-office, where better to turn next than a live-action TV series? As pilot season picks up, FOX has given a strong display of faith to MacFarlane picking up to series live-action comedy pilot 'Dads,' but what role will MacFarlane take on the actual show?
