Fox 2012 Midseason Schedule Includes The Series Premieres Of Touch, Alcatraz, And The Finder image
Fox released their 2012 Midseason schedule today. In addition to the return of the beloved American Idol, there are a number of new series scheduled to make their debuts in the new year, among which are Alcatraz and Touch, as well as the new Bones spin-off The Finder.

Animated series Napoleon Dynamite is set to join Fox’s Animation Domination line-up on January 15th. If you scroll down to the bottom to look at Sunday you’ll see that Fox shuffles things around more than once for their animated comedy series on Sunday night, bringing Napoleon Dynamite in (kind of aggressively as they’ve sandwiched two episodes around Family Guy for its premiere night. Then in March, Napoleon disappears from the line-up and the second season of Bob’s Burgers premieres.

Those of you looking forward to the new Kiefer Sutherland drama Touch will get an early look at the series when the preview airs in January (1/25), after which we’ll have to wait until March for the official premiere.

Below is the schedule. Before you panic, note that Bones and Glee will return with new episodes in the spring. Also absent from the list below is I Hate My Teenage Daughter, which will also be back in the spring after American Idol wraps up.
