This morning, Fox announced its schedule for the 2013-14 TV season, and while the network ordered nearly twice the number of new series it lined up at this time last year, several remain unscheduled. Beyond a few new names, not much has changed about the network’s broadcasting week: Mondays remain the place for genre fare. New Girl and The Mindy Project have been declared the de facto winners of this season’s Tuesday-night comedy clusterfuck. There’s no backing down on the singing-competition front. With Animation Domination back to four shows following The Cleveland Show’s cancellation, that block is set in stone for the first time in four years.
The schedule follows. New shows are in bold and all caps.
8 p.m.: Bones (fall) / ALMOST HUMAN (late fall)
9 p.m.: SLEEPY HOLLOW (fall) / The Following (midseason)
8 p.m.: The X Factor (fall) / American Idol (midseason)
8 p.m.: The X Factor Results (fall) / American Idol Results (midseason)
9 p.m.: Glee (fall) / RAKE (midseason)

We’ll be back later with more in-depth, night-by-night analysis of the schedule. Until then: You know what to do in the comments.
