Fox has announced the return dates for two shows as well as the premiere date of a brand new – and terrific – series. The new season of American Idol – with new judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban and returning judge Randy Jackson – will premiere in January, while Touch will return for its second season in February.
The new drama by Kevin Williamson, The Following, will premiere in January. This is a show that isn’t to be missed. Starring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy, it’s a fantastic series that pits an FBI agent (Bacon) against a devious serial killer (Purefoy).
