Fox's Fall Premiere Plan Includes Family Guy/Simpsons Crossover, 3-Part Utopia Launch, Late Mulaney Start

Fox Fall Schedule 2014

Fox is the fourth of the five major networks to reveal their fall premiere schedule, and it kicks off in early September with a three-part launch plan for Utopia, a new reality series that moves 15 everyday Americans to an undeveloped location and challenges them to create their own civilization. (Utopia will then air two nights a week, on Tuesday and Friday.)

Other highlights of Fox’s roll-out plan include the long-awaited, hour-long Family Guy/The Simpsons crossover episode and October premieres for three series, including the new sitcom Mulaney.

On tap for midseason are the Glee‘s 13-episode farewell run, the Rainn Wilson-fronted Backstrom, animated comedy Bordertown, hip-hop drama Empire, Will Forte sitcom The Last Man on Earth, limited series Wayward Pines, Becki Newton’s Weird Loners and the returning series American Idol and The Following.

  3. BrittBrat says:

    Gotham and Sleepy Hollow in one night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Make It So says:

    You know what I want to see? A Sleepy Hollow/Brooklyn Nine Nine crossover! The two towns aren’t that far apart in real life! It would be awesome. Ichabod Crane and Jake Peralta? Come ON!

  5. Ryan says:

    What’s fox going to do if Utopia doesn’t get enough ratings to warrant 2 nights, or even 1 night?

    • C says:

      Hopefully a quick cancelation death. Sounds like a retooled Survivor. I’m definitely planning on giving it a pass.

  6. Aries says:

    No thanks to Utopia.
    Can’t wait for Sleepy Hollow, Gotham and Glee!

  7. Angela says:

    “Sleepy Hollow”! So excited for its return.

  8. CBWBDK1 says:

    Bring back Almost Human!!!

  9. Grandma says:

    Why have a program premiere on a different night Then they show it on the they intend to for the rest of the season are trying to see if people will watch it first then put it against some popular program well let tell you something that can back fire first showing can do well but you put them in time slot against something I am infested in the new on loses.

  10. A says:

    OMG!!! I cannot wait for BONES to return….FREE BOOTH!!!!!!

    • Katie says:

      Bones in one show that I won’t be watching. I stopped watching a long time ago!

      • A says:

        yet you still feel the need to comment on bones, the show you havent watched in ages…really dont get that petty mentality…

        • Sarah says:

          My thoughts exactly. :)

          • C says:

            Well I was still watching it but was fed up with the season 9 end. I’ll give it a pass until they wrap up that story arc and will hopefully be able to — or remember to — tune back in when they get back to doing what I like best which is the fun mysteries with a side of squint drama not the stupid serial killer criminal mastermind arcs that they’ve done, and done again… and done yet again…and…been there and done that enough already. Missed most of last season because I’d gotten out of the habit of watching when the Pellant arc was on and half the season or more was over before I remembered to start watching again and of course they changed nights in there somewhere which made remembering to watch even more problematic.

    • Helen says:

      Excited for Bones too!! EEP!!!!!

  11. madhatter360 says:

    Are you sure its the season 3 premiere of masterchef jr? If so when did season 2 air?

  12. Sarah says:

    Finally! I can’t wait for Bones and Sleepy Hollow!

    • A says:

      So cant wait to see how B&B deal with Booth in jail. How they clear hìs name. The finale truly was phenomenal!! FREE BOOTH

  13. Joey Padron says:

    Excited for Family Guy/Simpsons crossover, new seasons of New Girl, The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and new shows Gotham, and Gracepoint.

  14. doris says:

    I want 24 to be back!

  15. This is going to confuse the heck out of me. Utopia is the title for an existing British drama – so how can Fox make a totally different show with the same name? I guess copyright only works sometimes.

  16. jason says:

    Big m.istake in letting tbs take over american dad….. you’re breaking up the bobs burgers american dad family guy simpsonns. Family

  17. Doris says:

    MORE 24 PLEASE!!!!
