Fox Delays Bones' Friday Debut, Gives Almost Human Two-Night Premiere

Bones Pelant Dies Season 9 RecapBooth and Brennan, don’t pack your things just yet…

Fox will keep Bones in its current time slot for a little longer than planned, the network announced Monday. The fan-favorite drama will make its Friday debut on Nov. 15, at 8/7c, instead of the previously announced Nov. 8.

In turn, Raising Hope’s one-hour premiere also has been pushed to Nov. 15.

Meanwhile, Almost Human — originally scheduled to premiere on Monday, Nov. 4 —  will now get underway with a two-night premiere on Sunday, Nov. 17, and Monday, Nov. 18, airing both evenings at 8 pm.

The change will allow J.J. Abram’s futuristic cop drama Almost Human to benefit from its football doubleheader lead-in; the series’ second episode then will bow in the Monday-evening, pre-Sleepy Hollow spot Bones now occupies.
