FOX Unveils Their 2012 Midseason Schedule

This Just In: Fox’s 2012 midseason schedule. But wait… before you completely ignore what we have to say in lieu of discovering when all of your soon-to-be-favorite new and returning shows premiere, there are few things of interest that you may wish to take note of. 1) Kiefer Sutherland’s TOUCH will get a special preview on January 25th following AMERICAN IDOL before returning to its regularly scheduled March 19th timeslot following HOUSE. 2) J.J. Abrams’ ALCATRAZ will replace TERRA NOVA on Monday nights starting January 23rd. And 3) THE FINDER will replace BONES starting January 12th with Fox promising BONES’ return sometime in the spring. But hey, don’t take our word for it, see for yourself after the jump.
