The much-anticipated premiere of FOX's new sci-fi series 'Almost Human' has been pushed back by two weeks. The series, originally slated to kick off on Monday, Nov. 4, has been given a new two-night premiere date of Sunday, Nov. 17 and Monday, Nov. 18.
The move places 'Almost Human' -- a robot buddy cop series helmed by 'Fringe' showrunner J.H. Wyman -- behind an NFL double-header on the network, meaning that FOX hopes to attract the audience of that sporting event to tune into the sci-fi series.
The delay of 'Almost Human' isn't the only FOX schedule shake-up. The procedural drama 'Bones' will continue on Mondays for the next two weeks -- with new episodes on Nov. 4 and Nov. 11, as a lead-in to 'Sleepy Hollow' -- before moving to Fridays at 9/8c on Nov. 15. It will be followed that night in its new timeslot by the Season 4 premiere of 'Raising Hope' at 10/9c.
What do you think of the schedule change-up? I'm personally a little disappointed to have to wait a little longer to see more of this fantastic series, given the strength of the pilot episode. Here's hoping that the premiere being pushed back doesn't rob the series of any much-deserved viewers.
