FOX announced its schedule for the 2013-2014 TV season, and there's a whole lot of experimentation. The network is splitting its fall season, meaning the schedule will be slightly different before and after it airs the baseball playoffs and World Series in October.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

More importantly, Kiefer Sutherland and 24 are coming back to television starting in May 2014 with a 12-episode limited series run to air over the summer. It will be joined by another event series, Gang Related, which will also debut in May and run through the summer. Once they end in late summer 2014, M. Night Shyamalan's new event series Wayward Pines will air, providing FOX with original scripted programming all year-round.

Glee will air the first half of its season in the fall, but then take an extended hiatus, not returning until the spring. FOX president Kevin Reilly promised that in the spring it will be "relaunching with I think a creative twist in terms of where we're going with the creative evolving." My current theory is that the first half will pick up with the rest of the school year, ending with Nationals in December, and when Glee comes back it will take place during the summer.

Bones will stay on Mondays for the beginning of fall, but then move to Fridays at 8pm in November where it will join two comedies, including Raising Hope (this is not a good sign for Bones or Hope).

New Girl will get the coveted post-Super Bowl slot, but only for the first half-hour. It will be joined by one of the network's new comedies, though which one has yet to be decided.

In addition, FOX has three unscheduled comedies, the animated series Murder Police as well as Christopher Meloni's Surviving Jack and the Jason Ritter/Alexis Bledel rom-com Us and Them, all of which will premiere at mid-season, replacing any failed shows.

Here's a complete look at FOX's current schedule. Early fall refers to the time before baseball playoffs begin and late fall means starting in November.
