It's that time of year when the US networks announce their Fall schedules to advertisers.

FOX announced a four-comedy block on Tuesdays, introducing Ben and Kate and The Mindy Project. This move effectively bumps the fourth season of Glee to Thursdays.
In addition to new comedies on Tuesday, FOX also is introducing a new drama series, medical drama The Mob Doctor, penned by Drop Dead Diva‘s Josh Berman and Robert Wright. It is taking over the Monday 9 PM slot currently occupied by House. FOX’s other newly picked up drama series, Kevin Williamson’s The Following starring Kevin Bacon, will also premiere on Monday in midseason.
Touch will relocate to Fridays (never a good sign), paired with the departing Fringe.
