  • Quick Question: Does ‘Almost Human’ not air on Jan 20, seeing that it’s time slot is being taken up by Sleepy Hollow.?

    • Almost Human goes on a break after the Episode 08 airing 2013-Dec-16; 2 episodes are scheduled in January (2014-Jan-06 & 2014-Jan-13), followed by another break for 2 weeks of doublers from Sleepy Hollow & then The Following, and then another short run is scheduled from 2014-Feb-03 (Ep.11) onwards.

      • Thanks. But I believe the episode airing on 16th Dec is Almost Human’s sixth and not the eighth. So, that will make Jan 6 and Jan 13 episodes as Ep.7 and Ep.8 followed by Ep.9 on the 3rd of February.

  • Mixed feelings. On one hand, less is more. But on the other, I feel like they’re not really moving the story as fast as one should with the limited time they have. Network shows with this limited run BS still operate like network shows.

  • Hey, it’s Fox, wait 10 minutes and they will change the schedule again. Hope I can keep up with the changes……

  • Instead of getting picked up for a full season Hollow only gets 13 episodes. Really don’t get that.

    • Networks are going for a “cable” feel nowadays. It’s much better this way. Less chance of having filler and BS.

  • This long break for Sleepy Hollow ducks. It’s only 13 episodes, they should have tun it through

  • I initially loved the idea of only doing 13 episodes- it keeps the story moving faster and gives us less filler. But the scheduling is ridiculous. Off for a month and one new episode followed by another two week break to end the season? It should not take 5 months to air 13 episodes.

  • This should effectively kill The Following.

    • Because the second episode is a week later…?

  • Another hour of Ichabod and Abbie is a good thing. Hopefully the cliffhanger will be enough to bring viewers back in 7 1/2 months.

    • Holy Cow, 7 1/2 months? I love this show and I only wish we did not have to wait so long. I just wish FOX and the producer had a Fall finale in December and then started back up in February. Surely, they realize that this show has a very good audience and their ratings are pretty decent.

  • I think it’s kinda stupid to put only the finale in January.Either split it properly or run it all at once!

    • There are three Sleepy Hollow episodes in January.
