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.'
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.
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.
