November Sweeps Scoop for Fox's Glee, Bones, House, Fringe, New Girl and More!

A Glee crush, prehistoric murder, big House drama, new love for the New Girl, the Chance clan raising a ruckus and the long-awaited return of Bones are but a few things on tap for Fox this November. The network just coughed up one of our fave documents of the year, its sweeps preview, and we’re here to hit you with the (non-animated) highlights.

Bones | The show is back – sorta – with encore airings of last season’s seminal “The Doctor in the Photo” and “The Change in the Game” – that is, unless the World Series goes seven games.

Fringe | On the heels of Peter’s own return, the translucent shapeshifters also put in an encore.

Terra Nova | Jim and Taylor investigate a murder; Skye helps Josh a way to get his girlfriend from 2149 to the past.

New Girl | When Jess accidentally walks in on a naked Nick, she sending his self-confidence to an all-time low — just as he scores a date with guest star Lake Bell.

Glee | The kids prepare to perform the school musical; Finn meets with a recruiter who also has his eye on Beiste.

New Girl | Cece convinces Jess that Nick likes her more than just as a roommate. (No, too soon!)

Raising Hope | When Maw Maw swallows her gold tooth, Burt and Virginia contemplate retrieving it. Ew.

Glee | Puck has a crush!

New Girl | Jess invites Paul (guest star Justin Long), a guy on whom she Long has had a crush, to Thanksgiving dinner at the loft.

Bones | When Morgan Fairchild guest-stars as the CEO of a toy company implicated in a murder, Brennan, wondering whether she will be a good mother, uses the case as a way to understand the importance of playing with her child.

Fringe | As Olivia and Lincoln help Peter get “home,” something “over there” occurs that hasn’t happened since the universes were linked at the end of last season.

    “Fringe | As Olivia and Lincoln help Peter get “home,” something “over there” occurs that hasn’t happened since the universes were linked at the end of last season.”

    Walternate strikes back

    • Dessy says:

      peter is going over There?? Whyyyy??

      • Michael Sacal says:

        I believe that home in this context (i.e. the quotes) might refer to the timeline he comes from.

        It may be that they will speculate that just like there are two different realities (Over Here and Over There) there might be two different timelines (let’s call them “What Once Was” and “What Is Now”. Home may be “What Once Was”, and they’re trying to send Peter over there (those last two words make this sound like a bad Abott and Costello joke!)

        • Dacaria says:

          I agree, I thought about the same thing since the last episode when Olivia commented that Walter hadn’t left the lab in “3 years.” So perhaps timelines will come into play again.

        • Julio P says:

          So true. I didn’t think of that…good on ya mate!

    • Michelle says:

      I wonder… maybe this new timeline is technically a different reality, and he’s seeking the old one?

    • Hanna says:

      I hope this doesn’t mean Peter can’t get our universe Olivia and Walter to remember him and he wants to go back “over there”. Gah, why do I torture myself with spoilers? they just make me worry!

      • Sandro Cutajar says:

        These spoilers are raising up the stakes… the Observers might have messed things up to such an extent that now it is too late to modify the outcome!!!

  2. Stef says:

    It’s insane how excited I am about the Terra Nova stuff. I don’t care what anyone says I love this show! Thanks Matt. :)

    • Dessy says:

      I like the show a lot too, actually.

      • dacaria says:

        I like Terra Nova. Unlike Falling Skies, it started off strong and imho, it keeps getting better with each episode.

        • Cloudy Knight says:

          If you think Terra Nova started off strong, I’d like to know your definition of weak. Falling Skies was a MUCH stronger show in it’s first few episodes. Terra Nova is a lame family “drama” masquerading as science fiction. They need to pump up the sci-fi factor and lower the family drama nonsense to a very slow boil.

          • Hanna says:

            I agree, Terra Nova has turned into such a soap opera and not at all what I expected. Falling Skies was much more interesting, and in my opinion had more likable characters AND better acting.

  3. Cheyenne says:

    That’s all for the Glee? What about all the other stuff we’ve heard? :(

    • Angel says:

      Ugh, I know! It seems like we just get little bits, it makes me so anxious! I guess that’s the idea, lol. I know there is a showdown coming between Shelby and Will’s groups, hope Will wins. Shelby, and Mercedes annoy me more than Mr. Schue.

  4. Alex says:

    Why do I get the feeling that Puck’s new crush will be Shelby?

    • Juliana says:

      I think so too and can’t help wonder… WHYYYYYY RYAN MURPHY? WHYYYYYYY!?

    • Lee says:

      Could it be because they not so subtley infer it in the trailers for upcoming episodes? Not too difficult to “get the feeling” when it is all over the commercial…

  5. Megan says:

    “Fringe | Olivia suffers from migraines.”


    Just kidding, I’m sure the migraines are due to some awesomely weird phenomenon. I love Fringe!

    • Michelle says:

      It would be funny if, for once, the migraines were just migraines XD

    • Kay says:

      Perhaps her latent cortexiphan abilities start to get activated. Or she starts to remember her past with Peter. Either way, her head hurts! :)

      • dacaria says:

        Peter returning to the Universe and Olivia’s “erased” memories returning could be a strong possibility for her migraines.

      • Emily says:

        I canNOT wait for this one. The more cryptic the synopsis, the better. It wouldn’t be the first time we saw Olivia getting back memories…she does have a special head, after all. Either way, I’ll love it.

  6. Snapy says:

    I’m glad I quit watching Glee after the second episode this season. This stuff sounds dreadful!

  7. Anita says:

    Could not help but laugh at the migraine synopsis for Fringe. Every other synopsis is needlessly complicated and that one is just…not! :P

  8. Keisha says:

    Wait what? Where is Peter going? Why? For who? For what? When? How? What the hell?…And “Bones” yay!!! Terra Nova is lame and stupid but at least its fun,so I’ll keep watching lol.

  9. Grace says:


  10. Beth says:

    I’m having a hard time believing that it’s almost November! The Fringe stuff looks great, so thank you.

  11. Jill says:

    Thank god Chase (Jesse Spencer) is back on House!!!

  12. Saracen Riggins says:

    Completely agree with the “too soon” sentiment regarding Nick & Jess on New Girl. I mean, I’ve seen that pair coming since the premier, but let’s draw it out a bit longer, please!

    • Sharon says:

      Agree. I think they should play with the Jess/Nick storyline, kind of like Booth and Bones, only for not nearly as long as 6 seasons.

  13. Coeur says:

    Olivia suffers from migraines? aww poor baby lol can’t wait :)

  14. Paul says:

    The Glee episode on November 15th also has a mash-up competition between Shelby and Will’s group.

  15. Sarah says:

    I seriously giggled at each episode description of “Raising Hope”. Love that show.

  16. Wendy says:

    I wonder what announcement Brennan makes to Booth about their baby that catches him off guard? Hmm.

  17. Wes says:

    I wonder who else will be joining the Glee Club. It won’t be Finn, Kurt, or Rachel. Probably not Tina or Mike. Maybe not Quinn. I think Brittany for sure and maybe Quinn will join Shelby’s group.

  18. Tristan says:

    Is it wrong that i can’t wait for Olivia to suffer migraines? Poor girl, but this is FRINGE, so its bound to be great.

    • Aly says:

      I was thinking the EXACT same thing! “Bad Dreams”, “A New Day in the Old Town”, “Marionette”… It seems like the episodes that consist of some Olivia-is-hurt storyline have been some of Fringe’s best!!

  19. jj says:

    Note that noone has commented on NEW GIRL. It’s because nobody cares!!! trust and believe. alot of people bought the hype and/or like Zooey Deschanel, but this show is going to cool off… FAST. Unless they fire all the original writers and get some that actually write funny episodes. it’s really hard to make quirky and unrealistic work. you’ve got to really commit to it and New Girl is stuck somewhere in between.

    • Doris says:

      Totally agree with your comments. I do not get all the hype surrounding this show. I have watched three episodes now, and I laughed a grand total of zero. Zooey is cute, (she always plays the same character), but cute can only go so far. I do admit the scene of them dancing to “Groovy Kind of Love” in the last episode was kind of sweet. But that won’t be enough unless the writing gets much funnier. I don’t know how long it will take for the bloom to come off this rose. We shall see.

    • Phoebi says:

      But there WERE comments on New Girl

  20. Marly says:

    I quit watching Glee after it became the Kurt show.

    • nikki says:

      yess! i hate that soooooo much. I don’t even remember when they did something that wasnt about Kurt/Rachel/Blaine. it’s just so boring…

      • Sara says:

        Yup, agreed. Way to turn us off characters we once like. And Darren criss has been so over-exposed it is painful. Have really missed Cory Monteith as he brought a realness that I identified with from the pilot episode and was someone who was an everyman. With him gone – or rather sidelined – it has been missing something. Mr.Shu has never really had the depth to be able to carry it.

  21. Gabi says:

    Mark Salling is weird in that pic. He looks like a wax figure.

  22. Shayla says:

    “Raising Hope” and “Fringe” my two favorite FOX shows,thank you so much for the news :)

  23. AngelMoonGirl says:

    YAY! Bones and Fringe! The Bones synopses I already knew about- I’m quite bad when it comes to finding out every possible spoiler- but the Fringe scoop I wasn’t aware of and it sounds SO cool! Maybe I’m sadistic but I just love the thought of migraines plaguing Olivia and since nothing is ever what it seems on Fringe I can’t wait to find out the source. Also, YESSSS hopefully Peter finally returns “home” to his timeline (okay, this suddenly feels like an eerie parallel to the beginning of last year when Olivia was trying to go home after being stuck in the alternate universe :D) because I really miss it! Season 4 has been cool but I miss the seasons 1-3 team dynamics. I wouldn’t want to remain in this new “yellow!verse” and I’m glad it appears we may not have to.

  24. Paige says:

    Justin Long is in the Thanksgiving episode of New Girl? Yay! I heard in that episode something hillarious goes down. Can’t wait!

  25. RKron says:

    “Olivia suffers from migraines” – I don’t think that’s the entire press release! What are you hiding from us?! XP

  26. Amber says:

    I’ll be glad to get New Girl back on TV.

  27. Tamara says:

    No offense, but you need a copy editor.
    “Skye helps Josh a way to get his girlfriend from 2149 to the past.”
    “When Jess accidentally walks in on a naked Nick, she sending his self-confidence to an all-time low”
    “Cece convinces Jess that Nick likes her more than just as a roommate.”

    Also, what’s with the extremely short and not-at-all fulfilling “descriptions”?

  28. marcee says:

    So many typos, I’m having a hard time understanding…

  29. Rex says:

    Awesome FRINGE news. Man, I LOVE this show!!!!!
    Glad Chase and Taub are coming back to House.
    Still sticking with Terra Nova although it hasn’t really grabbed me yet. I think they need to step up the story lines a bit, although I do like how Mira’s sprinkled a little doubt about Taylor and the true purpose of Terra Nova in Jim’s mind. I can see that little sprout beginning to grow over the next episodes. There’s definitely potential there. I just hope it continues to improve. All of the kids annoy me, so I can definitely do without the family drama. As for New Girl, that hasn’t grabbed me either. She’s good, but two of the three roomies are as one-dimensional as can be and the friend is a little ridiculous. I honestly don’t know what all the hype is about. It’s not knocking my socks off. Hanging in for Justin Long, though. Glee? Don’t even get me started. I thought it started off this season on the right foot and I do like Mercedes finally standing up for herself. The unicorn thing is ridiculous and I keep hoping Kurt’s Big Gay Drama that took over almost all of last year does not poke its ugly head back in. I’m hanging on, but only just.

  31. Dexter Q. says:

    Yay! Finally some Damian McGinty love to start off November. Excited to come back to Glee.

  32. AndyLuvr says:

    Please, TV Gods, let Noah Puckerman’s crush be Idina Menzel’s Shelby Corcoran!

  33. jaded says:

    All those House spoilers sound boring as hell! I’m excited about Glee!

  34. Jaimee says:

    If Pucks crush is Shelby I will never watch the show again. The writers screw up so much already but if they do this it will be way too big of a screw up and a horrible storyline and I just won’t want to watch anymore.
