Fox Pushes Back ‘Almost Human’ Debut By Two Weeks

Almost Human, one of the most anticipated launches of the fall television season, is coming a little bit later than expected.

Fox has announced new plans for the Almost Human, pushing back the premiere of J.H. Wyman’s sci-fi/crime drama by two weeks, from Monday, Nov. 4 to Sunday, Nov. 17. The network will air the second episode the following night, during its regular 8 p.m. time slot.

The move places the premiere right after an NFL double-header, which Fox hopes will boost the show’s initial viewership. It also gives newcomer Sleepy Hollow some time to remain paired with proven hit Bones before the veteran drama shifts to its new Friday schedule.

Created by Wyman (Fringe) and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Almost Human is set in 2048, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. Karl Urban stars as police detective John Kennex, the sole survivor of a devastating ambush, and Michaely Ealy as his robot partner Dorian.

    If Fox were smart they’d push it back to 1,205,044 AD. This show looks like total garbage. What kind of morons work at Fox? They turned down Locke & Key. They cancelled Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles after two season. They cancelled Firefly.

    Saw the entire first episode at NYCC, its actually pretty good once Dorian shows up.
