Fox Bumps Touch to Midseason; Kitchen Nightmares Returns to Fill Friday Gap

Somewhere, Kiefer Sutherland may be letting loose with a Jack Bauer-like, “Damn it!”

Season 2 of the 24 alum’s Touch has been pushed back to midseason, Fox announced on Thursday. The adventure drama had been set to premiere its sophomore run — which moves the setting from New York City to Los Angeles, and adds Maria Bello (ER), Lukas Haas (24), Said Taghmaoui (G.I. Joe: The Rise of The Cobra) and Saxon Sharbino as series regulars — on Friday, Oct. 26.

Instead, Kitchen Nightmares will return on that date with new episodes, claiming the Fridays-at-8 time slot (leading into Fringe).

Touch is now scheduled to return in “January 2013,” with its Season 2 time slot TBD.
