Finally, Fox has announced the premiere dates for its fall shows, including New Girl, Glee and Bones. The network has spaced out the premieres in such a way that we get nearly two months of premieres. The first show to kick off is the X Factor on September 11th. The X Factor premiere will be followed by a brand new season of Bones, starting September 16th, While the show will begin airing on Mondays, it will later move to a Friday night slot, for reasons known only to the network gods. The Monday night episodes of Bones will be followed by Sleepy Hollow – a new twist on the familiar Ichabod Crane story, or at least that’s how the network is billing this one. Sleepy Hollow will also premiere on the 16th.
