FOX Fall Premiere Dates: 'Fringe,' 'Prison Break' 'Bones' and 'Moment of Truth' Get 2-Hour Debuts
FOX is the most creative network around.  You might hate some of the shows it produces (cough The Moment of Truth cough), but you have to give FOX props for the way it creates its schedule.  If there is a new series the network is proud of, FOX promotes the hell out of it, and often premiere it after a veteran, highly rated series for good measure.  Thanks to American Idol, FOX constructs two very distinct Fall and Winter/Spring seasons, dodging the inclination to air most of its big shows year-round.  FOX has embraced the idea of airing its serial dramas with little or no breaks.  Today, FOX released the schedule for their Fall premieres.  There are a handful of two-hour premieres planned, including one for the most highly-anticipated new series of the Fall, the J.J. Abrams produced Fringe

FOX had originally planned to begin its Fall premieres in the last week of August, but has instead opted to push that back a week and being on September 1.  As is FOX's pattern for the last few years, new shows will air throughout September and the beginning of October, with most of the series then taking a break for a couple of weeks while FOX airs the Major League Baseball playoffs.  What follows is the FOX Fall premiere schedule.
