Fox swaps ‘Touch,’ ‘Bones’ on sked

'House' to get two-hour finale May 21

Fox has shuffled its previously announced midseason schedule, switching nights for new drama “Touch” and returning series “Bones.”

Touch,” which was originally scheduled for Mondays at 9 p.m. starting March 19, has been sent packing to Thursday at the same time beginning March 22. On April 2, “Bones” will move to Mondays at 8 p.m., sending “House” to 9.

The shifts should offer a less competitive timeslot for “Touch,” which got off to a promising start with a preview airing last month. Now instead of going up against “Two and a Half Men,” “Dancing With the Stars” and “The Voice,” “Touch” will get a relatively easier berth at 9 p.m. as well as a much stronger lead-in courtesy “American Idol.”

“Touch” won’t have to face CBS rookie drama “Person of Interest” in its premiere as the Eye will be airing March Madness basketball action that night.

“House,” which has less to lose against the tough Monday competish given the network recently decided the medical drama will end its run this season, gets a two-hour sendoff on May 21.

In addition, Fox announced it would push back its 25th anniversary special from April 1 to April 22.
