FOX delays Almost Human premiere for 2 weeks

Fox has decided to delay the premiere of its new J.J. Abrams-produced drama Almost Human for a couple weeks. Instead of launching November 4, the series will now debut November 17 at 8 p.m., right after Fox's Sunday NFL doubleheader. Human will then settle into its regular timeslot, Mondays at 8, the following evening.

As a result, Bones will now stay on Mondays for a few more weeks (with original episodes) before finally moving to Fridays on Nov. 18. Fox hopes this plan will give Human a bigger push out of the gate, while also ensuring Sleepy Hollow has a proven lead-in when it returns with original episodes on November 4.
