FOX today announced changes to its fall lineup on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. Bones moves to Tuesdays at 8:00 PM as of Sept. 25; KITCHEN NIGHTMARES shifts to Wednesdays at 9:00 PM, starting Sept. 19; and Don't Forget the Lyrics hums along on Thursdays at 9:00 PM, beginning Sept. 6.
Season Three of BONES, the darkly amusing procedural centering on a brilliant forensic anthropologist (Emily Deschanel) who teams with a dashing FBI agent (David Boreanaz) to solve crimes, premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. New unscripted series Kitchen Nightmares, in which fiery master chef Gordon Ramsay attempts to transform failing restaurants into popular hot-spots, serves its first course Wednesday, Sept. 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). And Don't Forget the Lyrics, with a $1-million prize awaiting contestants who can sing 10 missing lyrics in 10 hit songs, has its time-period premiere Thursday, Sept. 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
Leading off the game-show tandem on Thursdays is the A+ hit Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, which now premieres with a special one-hour class session on Thursday, Sept. 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and, as previously announced, also will air on four fall Fridays: Sept.14, Sept. 21, Sept. 28 and Oct. 5 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
Later in the fall, Fridays will rock with American Band. The producers behind mega-hit phenomenon American Idol take the musical reality genre to a whole new level in a search for the nation's best undiscovered bands, starting with the two-hour series premiere Friday, Oct. 19 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. American Band's regular time period will be Fridays, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT, leading into Nashville.
The freshman drama New Amsterdam, previously announced for Tuesdays at 8:00 PM in the fall, will be rescheduled in midseason.
