FOX has delayed the second season of Touch, pushing back the Kiefer Sutherland drama to January instead of the originally planned October 26 premiere. This marks the first change in the network's fall lineup. According to Deadline.com, Touch's Friday 8pm timeslot will now be taken over by Kitchen Nightmares.

So far, FOX has not announced whether Touch will continue airing in the Friday 8pm slot when it returns next year or if it's going to take on a new slot. For now, you can meet the new characters for season 2.
