FOX Fall 2014 Premieres: ‘Gotham,’ ‘Family Guy’-‘Simpsons’ Crossovers and More
Most of the major networks have already put forward their fall 2014 schedules, but fourth place is hardly bad press for FOX, given all their promising new series on deck. The full fall premiere list has arrived, plotting 'Gotham''s batty debut ahead of the much-hyped 'Family Guy'-'Simpsons' crossover, while 'Glee''s final farewell and more have been pushed to midseason.
Not too many surprises on FOX's fall 2014 premiere list to be found, though we're most excited to see Batman prequel 'Gotham' debut on Monday, September 22, just before the season 2 premiere of 'Sleepy Hollow.' The following Sunday will see Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin crossing paths, while John Mulaney's new sitcom 'Mulaney' has been pushed to an October debut.
And while we won't lose any sleep over 'Glee,' somewhat sad to see is that Rainn Wilson's 'Backstrom,' animated comedy 'Bordertown,' Lee Daniels' 'Empire,' Lord and Miller's Will Forte sitcom 'The Last Man on Earth,' and M. Night Shyamalan's 'Wayward Pines' have all been pushed to midseason.
