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.
