Fox has set return dates for sophomore drama The Following and American Idol and a premiere date for new drama Rake. Season 13 of American Idol will have a two-night launch January 15-16. Sleepy Hollow will wrap its freshman season on January 20 at 8 PM, leading to the second-season debut of Following, which will succeed Sleepy Hollow, returning to its Monday 9 PM slot. New legal drama Rake will kick off on Sunday, January 19, following the NFC Championship Game, before moving into its Thursday 9 PM berth on January 23. New comedy Enlisted will debut on Friday, January 10. The network also confirmed that new comedy Surviving Jack will air behind Idol on Thursdays for eight episodes in spring (no premiere date set yet) when Idol‘s result show is cut to 30 minutes for the first time, and noted that fellow midseason comedy Us & Them also will have a spring debut. The new season of Fox’s Saturday late-night Animation Domination High-Def block will launch January 11 with Lucas Bros. Moving Co. and Golan The Insatiable. Here are Fox’s midseason premiere date:
