Fox Moves ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ To Sundays; ‘Gotham’ Paired With ‘Sleepy Hollow’

May 12 (TheWrap.com) - Fox revealed its fall schedule Monday, shifting Brooklyn Nine-Nine to Sundays and slating Batman prequel Gotham on Monday nights.

First-year comedy Mulaney will also run on Sunday evenings. New reality series Utopia will air on Tuesdays and Fridays, Octavia Spencer vehicle Red Band Society on Wednesdays and Gracepoint on Thursdays.

Other new series, Backstrom, Bordertown, Empire, Hieroglyph, The Last Man on Earth, Wayward Pines and Weird Loners will join the network's schedule in 2015, as will returning series American Idol XIV, The Following and Glee, among others.

Also announced for the 2014-2015 season are brand-new live specials Jump of the Century (working title), Pitbull's New Year's Revolution (working title) and Grease Live (working title).

First, on the 40th anniversary of Evel Knievel's attempt to jump across Idaho's Snake River Canyon, professional stuntman Eddie Braun and daredevil Big Ed Beckley hope to achieve what Knievel could not by crossing the gaping 2,300-foot-deep canyon. On New Year's Eve, rapper Pitbull's party kicks off live at 8 p.m. Then, following local news, Pitbull's New Year's Revolution returns from 11 p.m.-12:30 a.m., produced by Endemol Live and Honey I'm Home. Finally, Fox is throwing it's T-Birds’ jacket in the ring of live musical performances — a la NBC's wildly successful The Sound of Music — with Grease Live, a live three-hour production with a young ensemble cast.

Last week, Fox canceled Dads, Rake, Enlisted, Surviving Jack. It axed Almost Human the prior week.
