After the conclusion of postseason baseball in late October, Fox will premiere a new game show on Wednesday and flip its Tuesday night dramas, the network confirmed Thursday.

Starting Wednesday, Nov. 1, quiz show “The Rich List” will premiere at 9 p.m. (ET), following an episode of forensic drama “Bones.”

“Rich,” a game in which teams of strangers create lists of information to win cash prizes, is being hosted by British morning show host Eamonn Holmes.

The day before “Rich” premieres, Fox will move hostage drama “Standoff” to 8 p.m., with medical drama and former time period holder “House” moving to 9 p.m.

Fox also confirmed the previously announced schedule change for drama “Justice,” which is making room for “Rich” on Wednesday and moving to Monday at 9 p.m. on Oct. 23. In addition, the one-hour “Vanished” is shifting from Monday to Friday at 8 p.m. beginning Oct. 27.

Veteran reality series “Trading Spouses” returns with a two-hour season premiere Friday, Oct. 20, and makes its time period premiere at 9 p.m. on Oct. 27.

As was previously announced, once baseball concludes, the new Thursday sitcoms “‘Til Death” and “Happy Hour” will return to the schedule, leading into teen drama “The O.C.,” which will have its fourth-season premiere Thursday, Nov. 2, at 9 p.m.
