    FOX has set the fall premiere dates for its new and returning series.

    The 2013-2014 season begins with the return of THE X FACTOR. Hosted by
    Mario Lopez, and featuring judges Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland
    and Paulina Rubio, the hit music competition series will launch with a
    two-night season premiere event on Wednesday, Sept. 11 (8:00-9:00 PM
    ET/PT) and Thursday, Sept. 12 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

    Darkly amusing procedural BONES enters its ninth season on Monday, Sept.
    16 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), followed by the series premiere of the thrilling
    adventure fantasy SLEEPY HOLLOW (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). In this modern-day
    twist on Washington Irving’s classic, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison, “Salmon
    Fishing in the Yemen”) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries
    through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and
    that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a
    contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie, “42,” “Shame,” “American
    Violet”) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.

    On Sept. 17, the Tuesday night comedy block is back with two new additions
    – DADS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) and BROOKLYN NINE-NINE (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) –
    and new seasons of NEW GIRL (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and THE MINDY PROJECT
    (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). Kicking off the night is DADS, the new live-action,
    multi-camera comedy from Emmy Award winner Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin
    and Wellesley Wild (“Ted,” FAMILY GUY) that stars Emmy Award winner Seth
    Green (FAMILY GUY) and Emmy Award nominee Giovanni Ribisi (“My Name is
    Earl,” “Ted”) as two successful gaming entrepreneurs – and childhood best
    friends – whose lives get turned upside down when their pain-in-the-neck
    patriarchs (Martin Mull, “Two and a Half Men”) and Academy Award and Emmy
    Award nominee Peter Riegert, “The Good Wife,” “The Sopranos”) move in.
    BROOKLYN NINE-NINE (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), from Emmy Award-winning
    writer/producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur (“Parks and Recreation”) and
    starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg (“Saturday Night Live”) and Andre
    Braugher (“Men of a Certain Age,” “Homicide: Life on the Street”), is a
    new single-camera workplace comedy about what happens when a hotshot
    detective (Samberg) gets a new captain (Braugher) with a lot to prove.

    Will Rachel (Lea Michele) be Broadway’s next baby? Will Blaine (Darren
    Criss) marry Kurt (Chris Colfer)? Can the kids of New Directions win yet
    again at Nationals? Find out the answers to all these GLEE-related
    questions when a new season of the hit musical comedy launches Thursday,
    Sept. 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following THE X FACTOR.

    New unscripted series MASTERCHEF JUNIOR is set to debut Friday, Sept. 27
    (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The new culinary competition series for talented
    kids gives budding cooks between the ages of eight and 13 the opportunity
    to showcase their talent, culinary smarts and passion for food through a
    series of delicious challenges and cook-offs. Award-winning chef Gordon
    Ramsay, restaurateur and winemaker Joe Bastianich (Del Posto, Eataly) and
    acclaimed chef Graham Elliot (Graham Elliot, Graham Elliot Bistro) coach
    and encourage the promising hopefuls to cook like pros and teach them the
    tricks of the trade along the way.

    Sundays get re-animated beginning Sept. 29, with the season premieres of
    THE SIMPSONS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), BOB’S BURGERS (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT),
    FAMILY GUY (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and AMERICAN DAD (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).

    Later this fall, futuristic action drama ALMOST HUMAN premieres Monday,
    Nov. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Executive-produced by Emmy Award winner J.J.
    Abrams (“Fringe,” “Lost,” the “Star Trek” and “Mission: Impossible”
    franchises) and creator J.H. Wyman (“Fringe,” “The Mexican”) and starring
    Karl Urban (“Star Trek”) and Michael Ealy (“Sleeper Cell,” “Common Law”),
    ALMOST HUMAN is a high-tech, high-stakes action drama set 35 years in the
    future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like
    androids. An unlikely partnership is forged when a part-machine cop
    (Urban) is forced to pair with a part-human robot (Ealy) as they fight
    crime in a futuristic new world.

    Friday nights beginning on Nov. 8 are all-new when BONES moves to a new
    night and time (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and RAISING HOPE (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT)
    kicks off an all-new hour of comedy, followed by the series premiere of
    the new sibling comedy ENLISTED (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). Written and created
    by Kevin Biegel (“Cougar Town,” “Scrubs”) and starring Geoff Stults (“Ben
    and Kate,” “The Finder”), Chris Lowell (“Private Practice,” “Veronica
    Mars”) and Parker Young (“Suburgatory”), ENLISTED is an irreverent
    single-camera comedy about an older sibling who returns home to reconnect
    with his two brothers and lead a group of misfits on a small Florida Army
    base.
