With fall TV now fully underway, it's time for networks to start thinking about what's next for their midseason agendas. Luckily, FOX seems to be way ahead of the curve and has just revealed its next batch of premiere dates scheduled to take place in January.

This includes return dates for Kevin Bacon's hit thriller, 'The Following,' which will launch on the heels of the 'Sleepy Hollow' finale, as well as 'American Idol,' which will once again fill into its traditional two-night, four-hour premiere time slot. Meanwhile, Greg Kinnear’s legal drama 'Rake' and the new guy-friendly military comedy 'Enlisted' have both finally been given start dates.

'Glee' will return from its annual winter hiatus later in the spring, along with two brand new comedies 'Surviving Jack' and 'Us & Them.' Check out the full lineup below for all the details. At least now we have something to look forward to after the holidays.
