“Human Target” will get a coveted “American Idol” lead-in on Fox’s mid-season schedule and “Fringe” will remain on Thursdays where it has been struggling, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
"American Idol" will begin on Jan. 12. On Tuesdays it will be followed by the game show "Our Little Genius” –which actually gets a Wednesday Jan. 13 stunt premiere before moving to its regular slot–until April, when “Glee” returns from a four-month hiatus and lands there.
The new action-drama series "Human Target" will get the post-“Idol” Wednesday slot on Jan. 20, after an earlier stunt Sunday launch.
Meanwhile, “24” returns with a two-night, four-hour event on Sunday Jan. 17 and Monday, Jan. 18.
“Fringe” will remain on Thursdays at 9 until Feb. 11, when the new thriller “Past Life” will take over until April.
