A new Fox drama starring Kiefer Sutherland will have a strong lead-in after it makes its official midseason bow March 22 in the network’s Thursday lineup at 9 p.m., leading out of “American Idol," TVLine reports.
“Touch” was well-received when it aired a sneak peek over the winter, the story notes. Now Fox is shuffling the lineup, which has already been in flux, in part to give the Sutherland series its best chance.
Clearing the way for “Touch,” “Bones” will play out its seventh season on Mondays at 8 p.m. starting April 2, the story notes.
“House” will be back at 9 p.m. starting April 2, for the runup to the series finale. A “House” retrospective will air Monday, May 21, at 8 p.m., leading in to the finale.
The spring finale for Fox’s “The Finder” is set for March 8, with the season to resume at a later date that has not been announced yet.
The story adds: “’Alcatraz,’ as previously announced, will continue with all-new episodes throughout March, including a double helping on March 5 and a two-hour season finale on March 26.”
