Fox Delays Almost Human Premiere, Plans Two-Night Event

at . Comments

Fox has pushed back the premiere of Almost Human by nearly two weeks.

But the network means this as a sign of encouragement for the series.

Instead of kicking off on Monday, November 4, the J.H. Wyman-produced drama will now launch on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, following an NFL doubleheader that Fox believes will bring more eyeballs to Almost Human. It will then air its second episode the following night at 8/7c.

What does this mean for Bones and Sleepy Hollow?

The former will remain on Monday nights on November 4 and November 11, making the move to Fridays on November 16. The latter, meanwhile, was never going anywhere. It will finish its 13-episode run at 9/8c.

Almost Human, meanwhile, stars Karl Urban as a futuristic detective who gets paired with an android partner played by Michael Ealy. Check out the promo here:
