Fox announces primetime schedule for 2012-2013 season

Peter Rice, Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Networks Group; and Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, today unveiled the FOX primetime schedule for the 2012-2013 television season to the national advertising community during its annual Programming Presentation at the Beacon Theatre.

“Television continues to be the most vibrant, emotionally rich platform in the world,” said Rice. “FOX has been the No. 1 network for eight seasons by delivering groundbreaking, engaging and culturally relevant shows that connect with our audience, not only on-air, but wherever they are in the digital or social space.”

“With first-year culture-driving hits like New Girl and The X Factor and strong returning tentpoles like American Idol and Glee, we were laser focused on our development and it has really paid off,” said Reilly. “I have no doubt that our two genre-defying new dramas, our new FOX Sports Saturdays, and our three new distinctive, sharp and upscale comedies – all fronted by incredible talent – can propel FOX to even greater success.”

The schedule includes five new series: The Mindy Project; Ben and Kate; The Mob Doctor; The Following and The Goodwin Games. The schedule also includes a couple changes from last seasons, most notably: Glee will be moving to Thursdays following The X Factor in the fall; Touch shifting to Friday before Fringe and a new Thursday night comedy block. Full details over the jump.

FOX announces spring schedule

FOX is announcing April launch dates for the return of Bones and the debut of HOTEL HELL.

On Thursday, April 5 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Bones returns with an expectant Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) 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.

After more than a decade of running restaurants in some of the world’s top hotels, Gordon Ramsay knows firsthand the crucial importance of surpassing guests’ highest expectations. In HOTEL HELL premiering Friday, April 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Ramsay will travel across the country to fix horrid hotels, awful inns and just plain bad bed and breakfasts. To come to grips with the problems, Ramsay will endure hotels at their worst – from filthy bedrooms and mold-ridden bathrooms to dreadful room service and incompetent staff – all so you don’t have to. After he has uncovered the issues, Ramsay will put the hotel owners and employees to work as he attempts to turn around these failing establishments. With reputations on the line, one thing is certain: if they can’t meet Ramsay’s high standards, they will never check out of HOTEL HELL.

The complete press release is included after the jump.
