at .  Updated at . Comments

Alright, gang. Fox has set its winter 2016 schedule and, well, it's a tad confusing.

New Girl gets a premiere date, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is on the move (back to its original Tuesday slot), Bones is benched, The Frankenstein Code aka Lookinglass is now titled Second Chance and Lucifer gets a premiere date. 

But wait! There's more! To make sense of the full schedule, just look below. It's all written in black and white.
