    Looks about right to me. I wish the wait for Bones wasn’t so long but maybe its for the best. I hope Pitch does better than I think it will do

  2. Steven says:

    It says both actually.

  3. Iris says:

    Can’t wait for Lucifer S2!

  4. Kevin K says:

    Guess I’ll wait until the Super Bowl when 24: Legacy premieres (might have a torture scene in a future episode).

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Excited for new seasons of Gotham, Lucifer, Brookyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, and The Last Man On Earth! I’ll check out Pitch and Son Of Zorn.

  6. Jared says:

    Fox has a pretty solid lineup. The Exorcist looks really good and I’ll give a few of the new pilots a shot.

  7. Cindy Yelton Northup says:

    What happened to Houdini & Doyle ? Sure wish that would be renewed.

    What happened to the show”Second Chance?” I really liked that show and I don’t see it at all, yet. Does anyone know what happened with this show??
