Fox Programming Notes: More Alcatraz, Less House

at . Comments

In a move that bodes well for Alcatraz, but less well for House's chances of landing on the Fox schedule again this fall, the network has revamped its March lineup.

Hugh Laurie and company have been removed entirely next month in order to make room for one week of twice the Alcatraz; and two weeks of an Alcatraz/Touch pairing, as Fox likely wants to see how these two rate together before making any decisions for 2012-2013.

Here is a look at the new schedule:

Monday, March 5
8:00/7:00c - Alcatraz (Back-to-Back Episodes)

Monday, March 12
8:00/7:00c - Alcatraz (New Time Period)
9:00/8:00c - Touch (Encore of Pilot)

Monday, March 19
8:00/7:00c - Alcatraz
9:00/8:00c - Touch (Season Premiere)

Monday, March 26
8:00/7:00c - Alcatraz (Season Finale)
9:00/8:00c - Touch

Mondays (as of April 2)
8:00/7:00c - House
9:00/8:00c - Touch
