NEW GIRL:  Cast L-R:  Damon Wayans, Jr., Jake Johnson, Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield, Hannah Simone and Lamorne Morris. The fourth season of NEW GIRL premieres Tuesday, Sept. 16 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.  ©2013 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: Autumn DeWilde/FOXFox has unveiled its schedule for the upcoming winter TV season, and it's full of returning favorites, series debuts, and lots of timeslot switcheroos.

"American Idol" will be back for its final season with a two-night premiere on January 6 and January 7, bumping "Sleepy Hollow" from Thursdays to Fridays. "Bones," meanwhile, is missing from the schedule entirely, though we're guessing that Fox is holding out on assigning it a new timeslot until it sees how its freshman shows fare (and whether or not they get yanked, opening up a hole for "Bones" to fill). "The Last Man on Earth" is in a similar situation, we assume, and is off the schedule for now.

"New Girl," which was held for midseason to accommodate star Zooey Deschanel's pregnancy and maternity leave, will make its fifth season premiere on January 5, moving to the 8 p.m. Tuesday timeslot. There are plenty more changes on that night, with "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" switching from Sunday to Tuesday (its original night when it debuted in 2013), and both "The Grinder" and "Grandfathered" moving to new Tuesday slots to allow for that shift.
