Just weeks after announcing that FX UK will re-brand as FOX on Friday January 11th and the acquisitions of FX’s off-beat comedy series Louie, The Ricki Lake Show, Men At Work and the second season of The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret, the broadcaster has revealed the details of their launch schedule.
Kicking things off one day ahead of the re-brand is the UK premiere of the eighth season of Fox’s long running animated series American Dad on Thursday January 10th at 9:30pm. Following just behind the season 8 premiere of American Dad is the channel premiere of The Cleveland Show season 3 (which has previously been aired in the UK on E4) on Thursday January 10th at 10pm. The tenth season of CBS’ long running procedural NCIS will then receive its UK premiere on the newly re-branded FOX on Friday January 11th at 9pm. The first season of FX’s award winning comedy series Louie – which puts a spotlight on Louie CK’s everyday ordeals, his quest to find love and his pursuit of humor – will receive its UK premiere on Tuesday January 22nd at 9pm. Following just behind the UK premiere of Louie will be the channel premiere of the first season of The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret (which was previously aired in the UK by More4) on Tuesday January 22nd at 9:30pm. Finally, Ricki Lake’s talk show The Ricki Lake Show will return to UK screens on FOX on weekdays as of Monday January 21st at 4pm.
