Update 3/13: FOX has switched their schedule around and moved Touch to Thursdays. It will premiere on March 22nd after American Idol and continue to air on Thursdays. FOX’s Bones has been moved to Mondays.

Kiefer Sutherland in Touch

FOX has sent out a press release detailing their mid-season schedule and we finally have some information on Touch‘s premiere. First they will air a “special preview” of the pilot episode on January 25th right after American Idol to build buzz, then the series will premiere in 24‘s old time slot on Mondays at 9-10PM in March.

TOUCH, the distinctive new drama created by Tim Kring (“Heroes”) and starring Kiefer Sutherland (“24”) will debut with a special preview Wednesday, Jan. 25 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), immediately following AMERICAN IDOL (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The uplifting drama, which makes its series premiere Monday, March 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), features Sutherland as a widower and single father haunted by an inability to connect to his mute 11-year-old son. But everything changes when he discovers that his son possesses the gift of staggering genius – the ability to see things that no one else can and the patterns that connect seemingly unrelated events.

Can’t wait! Keep us posted.

If ‘Touch’ is renewed for a second season, let’s hope Fox keep it at the same time slot, including it’s late January premiere, that way the Kief’ will have more time in between to spend on the ’24′ movie, which, if they begin shooting in late April, will hopefully have a solid sixteen-week production through until late August, giving them around 90-odd days to get Jack Bauer’s big-screen debut in the can, so to speak, which is a totally solid schedule by any standards, speaking of which, is Tony Scott still directing it, I haven’t heard anything to the contrary, so I presume he still is, but if anyone knows different, I’d love to know…?

Love Kiefer in 24 and can’t wait to see the new series!!!

what happened to full season television, which was September to May? “24″ was a good show, but they started that crap with airing late in January, and calling Jan – May a season. For that reason, I will not watch. I’m not going to wait until January 2013 for it’s new ” 2nd season.”
