If you've been looking forward to the premiere of Rake on Fox, you'll have to wait a little bit longer.
The network had initially planned to give the dramedy a big launch behind the Nfc Championship Game on January 19th. The execs have now decided that season two of The Following will get that plum spot instead.
The Following will follow the game on the 19th and then follow the Sleepy Hollow season finale the next evening. Moving forward, The Following will air at 9pm on Mondays, behind Almost Human.
Starring Greg Kinnear, Rake will now premiere on Thursday, January 23rd, behind American Idol. The dramedy follows the chaotic life of a criminal defense lawyer. His lack of discretion and inability to self-censor land him the cases that nobody else will touch. There are 13 episodes.

Fox has announced its new winter schedule, with the biggest changes coming on Tuesday nights: Glee is moving to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is moving to 9:30 p.m., and The Mindy Project is going on hiatus between January 28 and April 1. These moves make room for Rake, a new lawyer show, which will air at 9 p.m. on Thursdays, in the plum post–American Idol position. Will Idol watchers be into a dark dramedy starring Greg Kinnear as a bad-boy lawyer with lots of oddball clients? One wonders. »

Fox has announced a few schedule updates and changes for the upcoming winter calendar. Briefly: Season two of The Following now gets a two-night premiere on Sunday, January 19th and Monday, January 20th, following the season finale of Sleepy Hollow. The new drama series Rake, starring Greg Kinnear, will now make its series debut on Thursday, January 23rd instead of getting the post-nfc Championship slot on January 19th. Sam Raimi directed the pilot. Glee is moving back to Tuesday nights starting February 25th, which will result in Brooklyn Nine-Nine shifting to the 9:30pm timeslot starting February 4th. As a result of the Glee shift, Fox is pulling Tuesday comedies The Mindy Project and Dads from the schedule. The Mindy Project will have a “winter finale” on January 28th but will return on April 1st. Dads, however, will be pulled from Tuesdays effective February 11th and does not yet have a return date scheduled. »

Fox is making some scheduling tweaks for midseason, with much of its focus on its ratings-soft Tuesday comedy block.
Come February 25, the network is returning "Glee" to the 8 p.m. time slot on Tuesdays, scaling back the comedy line up to just "New Girl" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" at 9 and 9:30, respectively. The cop comedy takes over its home on Feb. 4, replacing "The Mindy Project," which will go on hiatus after its Jan. 28 winter finale, returning on April 1, after "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" wraps for the season.
Deadline reports "The Mindy Project" will take a month-long production hiatus around the holidays, which the writers will use to regroup and plot the show's April re-launch, which could be decisive to the comedy's future, considering Tuesday's (Nov. 19) episode hit a new series low in the 18-49 demo.
Fox is making a flurry of slightly confusing three-card monte changes to its winter schedule.
The most potentially meaningful shift is that Dads is going away, at least for awhile, despite having a full-season order. Dads will run through Feb. 11. After that, well … Fox won’t use the c-word, but this is what the c-word often looks like when a show’s demise is plotted months in advance. The network is reserving its right to bring the modestly rated freshman comedy back at some point next year.
As for the rest: You know how Glee is on Thursdays? Now it’s going back to Tuesdays. »

The nuts-and-bolts of it all:
* Glee, which airs its “lost Christmas episode” winter finale on Dec. 5, will return Tuesday, Feb. 25. Dads will have finaled by then and The Mindy Project will be on hiatus from Jan. 28 (its winter finale) until April 1, when it comes back with a double-episode spring opener.
* Fox’s Tuesday comedy block will thusly be scaled down to just the 9 o’clock hour, »

Fox is shortening American Idol for its 13th season next year. The network is giving the singing competition a 30-minute results show on Thursday nights for at least eight weeks instead of its usual hour-long show.
The revelation was contained in Fox’s midseason premiere date announcement (most dates below). Fox plans to add eight-episode sitcom Surviving Jack to its Thursday lineup at some point in midseason at 8:30 p.m., with Idol running for a half hour at 8 p.m. during those weeks.

“American Idol,” which will bow with a two-night, four-hour premiere on Jan. 15 and 16, will trim its Thursday results show to 30 minutes for eight weeks in the spring. This will provide a good lead-in for new Christopher Meloni comedy “Surviving Jack,” which will air at 8:30 p.m.
Amid declining ratings for most reality warhorses, “Idol” becomes the second big broadcast reality show to trim its results show. ABC actually took it a step further, eliminating its hourlong Tuesday “Dancing With the Stars” results show this fall to make room for some new shows.
An exact premiere date for “Surviving Jack” will be announced at a later time, but it’s possible that it will oppose comedies on both CBS and NBC. »
