Sure, there’s plenty of great summer TV to keep us occupied for the next few months, but you didn’t expect us to sit back and ignore our favorite major network shows, did you?  Just as NBC recently announced their fall schedule (moving ‘Community‘ back, boo!), so too has FOX unveiled their own listings.  Have their been any major upsets?

Today FOX announces its full schedule for the fall, including both the series and season premiere dates of new and returning shows.  Unlike the NBC schedule, there aren’t quite so many upsets or shockers, though the second season of Kiefer Sutherland drama ‘Touch‘ has been moved all the way back to October 26.

Elsewhere, the schedule reveals that the newly re-vamped ‘The X-Factor‘ with Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will receive a two-night premiere across September 12 and 13, and ‘New Girl‘ has been granted an additional preview episode that will air the same night of its season premiere, both on Tuesday, September 25.

Being saved for mid-season are ‘American Idol,’ ‘Hell’s Kitchen, ‘Cops,’ Kevin Bacon-fronted serial killer drama ‘The Following’ and the Scott Foley-Becki Newton comedy ‘The Goodwin Games.’  Also, personal favorite ‘Fringe‘ will debut its final season on September 28, but have a look for yourself at what FOX has to offer this fall!
