9:30-10:00 PM THE LAST MAN ON EARTH.

TV's Upfronts week—that glorious time when the broadcast networks reveal their plans for the new season to advertisers and the press—continued rolling early this morning when Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of the Fox Television Group, hopped on the phone to talk about Fox's upcoming 2017-18 programming slate.

Armed with five of the last season's top 15 shows, including Star and Lethal Weapon, Walden explained that the net's strategy behind some of the pickups and moves was to "build bigger nights" and pointed out that each night's schedule is thematic in one way or another.

Mondays will go on being a showcase "for big bold dramas" that have benefited from the promo power of Sunday Night football, with Lucifer moving to 8/7c, followed by "the big cinematic and accessible" family-adventure drama The Gifted, their first Marvel series, starring Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker as a couple who take their kids on the run after learning that they have mutant powers.

Comedy comes next as Lethal Weapon relocates to Tuesdays at 8/7c as a powerful lead-in to The Mick, which Walden raved about. "We are big believers in The Mick and [star] Kaitlin Olson has been amazing." She went on to say that the net "sees enormous potential" for the comedy and plans to put "everything we can behind" it, including returning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which closes the night.

Wednesdays are music-soap night, with Lee Daniels' Empire and Star, "a young show we believe in," said Walden, teaming up for what is probably the most sensible pairing.

On Thursdays, Gotham is expected to bring its "really loyal, male" fanbase (Walden heaped on the praise for its ability to previously "hold its own" against Big Bang Theory and Monday Night Football) to Thursdays, where Season 4 will be followed by Seth MacFarlane's hour-long The Orville, "a funny accessible" sci-fi tale about the crew of an exploratory spaceship set 400 years in the future. The Adrianne Palicki-led show is "getting a big push after two NFL double-headers" before taking up its regular perch.

With the renewal of The Exorcist, its Friday pairing with Hell's Kitchen will stay intact and seemingly play off the idea that both shows have a devil running loose. One is just in a chef's jacket.

Saturdays will be reruns and football as usual, and on Sundays, the animation block is getting a live-action interloper in the form of Ghosted, the paranomal-hunters comedy co-starring Craig Robinson (The Office) and Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation). That newbie will be bookended by The Simpsons and The Family Guy.

As for mid-season, Gary Newman touted the returns of The X-Files and New Girl, as well as the "distinctive medical drama" The Resident starring Matt Czuchry (The Good Wife), Emily VanCamp (Revenge) and Manish Dayal (Halt and Catch Fire) as three doctors "at different stages of their careers." There will also be the new Ryan Murphy-Brad Falchuk series 9-1-1 with Angela Bassett about the crazy lives of first responders, and LA to Vegas, set on a commuter plane that flies between to two cities.

This one, from executive producers Steve Levitan (Modern Family), Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (The Boss) has our interest piqued, as Newman has declared that star Dylan McDermott gives "the performance surprise of the season."

On the live musical front, Walden said that casting would be underway soon for December's A Christmas Story and 2018's production of Rent, both of which will be overseen by La La Land EP Marc Platt (who is also on board for NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar).

And don't give up hope on seeing more 24: Legacy or Prison Break. Walden said that PB is "something we'd love to do again," but noted that it was never in the plan to bring the limited-event series back every season. And 24's reboot is "very much still in the mix," it was just that star Corey Hawkins is tied up doing Broadway right now, so that made scheduling any return difficult. Scream Queens, however, is dead. "We have no plans to go back," she said of the Ryan Murphy anthological horror-com.

Finally, the American Idol situation was addressed. Walden revealed that, despite a 70% drop-off in ratings during the final seasons, production company Freemantle was "hungry to get it back on TV" immediately after the final season.

"It felt to us that it would be extremely fraudulent to bring it back so quickly" after its hyped-up final season, she said, adding that "we didn't see the fan excitement" about the idea of the show living on. And although Freemantle balked at making budgetary changes or any tweaks to the judging panel to keep it on Fox, the company then met with NBC right after Seacrest signed off for the last time in hopes of finding it a new home.

Once it became clear that the show was not going to go away, Walden stated that Fox did consider mounting a revised return of Idol: "We did make an offer...ultimately that fell apart."

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

I'll give The Gifted a shot because I love Amy Acker. Otherwise probably just Gotham, and eventually, The X-Files.

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

The Gifted, Lucifer, Lethal Weapon, Gotham and The Exorcist

Not sure about The Orville. Guess it's a sci-fi comedy. Not too crazy about Seth MacFarlane as a human actor. It does have Adrianne Paliciki though. hmmmm.

I'm glad they put 24: Legacy to rest. It was disappointing season. I don't trust the 24 writers to be able to come up with something fresh and unique at this point.

1st promo image of The Orville



Looks like a Star Trek spoof.

Jon Cassar announced on Twitter he will be directing episodes.

Maybe the Exorcist. But I will probably just wait until it all airs and get it on Vudu like I did with season one.

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

I will check out Orville. Sci-fi/comedy could be fun if done correctly, not unlike Galaxy Quest

Just watched The Orville trailer. Looks like it could be fun.

I liked the Worf like character. We only urinate once a year.

I'm always willing to give Amy Acker a shot.

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

Have to admit The Orville looks pretty funny. I'd watch Adrianne Palicki read a toothpaste tube. Very sexy for a human. The big question is whether or not the show has legs or did they just blow through every gag they had on tap in that trailer?

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

Sadly, no matter how awesome something looks, the combo FOX and Sci-Fi gives me pause. The latest blow was losing Almost Human without an ending.

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

That was Norm MacDonald as the blob. I am definitely in for that.

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

I'll give The Gifted a chance. But, I have the bad feeling it will end up like past shows like Almost Human and other good shows that FOX killed after one season.

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

I'll be watching The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and The Last Man on Earth. I'll check out Ghosted, The Orville, The Resident (since Emily VanCamp is in it and I'm a fan of hers), and LA to Vegas.

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

Only Gotham here for me.

Most of these main TV stations seem to have lost me as a viewer in the past 2-3 years and just never picked up anything new that would interest me enough to check it out.

Re: Fox Announces Fall 2017-18 Schedule.

I definitely watch Gotham and The Exorcist, possibly others. Network television is in a sad state these days but Fox offers a better schedule than the others.

I must be the last person here that keeps watching new Simpsons.

FOX have announced the premiere dates for its Fall series launches.

The two-part opening episodes of Seth MacFarlane’s sci-fi/comedy “The Orville” will get a special Sunday night premiere on Sunday September 10th and 17th at 8pm. The show will then move to its Thursday 9pm regular timeslot on September 28th with its third episode. The same night sees the return of “Gotham” with its fourth season.

Most shows will return in the last week of September. “Lethal Weapon,” “The Mick” & “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will hit Tuesday September 26th, “Empire” & “Star” return Wednesday September 27th, and “Hell’s Kitchen” & “The Exorcist” are back Friday September 29th.

The Sunday night line-up (“Simpsons,” “Family Guy,” “Last Man on Earth,” etc.) all return October 1st along with the series premiere of the Adam Scott & Craig Robinson comedy “Ghosted”.

The anticipated “X-Men” spin-off series “The Gifted” will be the last of the new shows to premiere with a Monday October 2nd date targeted. The season premiere of “Lucifer” will air the same night.
