Fox has pushed back the premiere date of Touch again. Season 2 of the Kiefer Sutherland drama will now kick off with a two-hour premiere on Friday, Feb. 8 at 8/7c, the network announced Wednesday.
Fox has delayed the launch of Touch's second season until January 2013, the network announced Thursday.
An exact premiere date for the show, which was originally slated to begin later this month, has not been set.
"All those equations add up to something, I'm guessing," Lukas Haas says of the chicken scratch behind him. "Just don't ask me what it all means."

Danny Glover's stint on the new Fox drama Touch was a temporary one, as viewers found out last week. Now that Glover's character has been killed off the Kiefer Sutherland series, creator Tim Kring confirms that the actor had signed on to only appear in the show's first six episodes.
Last Thursday's episode ended with Glover's character, Prof. Arthur Teller, slumped over his...

Anyone who thinks TV isn't trying hard enough to raise the bar this midseason should check out tonight's most distinctive shows. With the official series launch of Fox's fantastical Touch (9/8c) and another fascinating episode of NBC's mystifying Awake (10/9c), I imagine some will maintain that they may be trying a little too hard.
It's probably fair to wonder if Fox is touched in the head for going forward with a show as out-there as Touch. This hasn't been an easy time for truly offbeat shows to gain traction, as risk-takers including Smash, The River and Awake have struggled in the ratings, with critics eager to point out their obvious flaws while often undervaluing the ambition it took to put ...

Will Kiefer Sutherland always save the day?
Viewers who tuned into the premiere of his newest series Touch watched as his character Martin Bohm pieced together a puzzle indirectly given to him by his autistic son Jake (David Mazouz). By the end of the hour, Martin, like Sutherland's Jack Bauer, connected the dots in the nick of time, saving a young boy from a bomb, reuniting a grieving couple and leading a lottery winner to save a bunch of kids from a burning bus. But will each episode always end with...

Inside his trailer on the set of his new Fox series Touch, Kiefer Sutherland can't stop thinking about numbers: 12,000,000... 318... 100...
"It boggles the mind," he says. "It's become a huge part of my life."
No, Sutherland hasn't become obsessed with patterns like his son on the show. Touch tells the story of Martin Bohm (Sutherland), a once promising journalist who's now a widower unloading baggage at JFK. His 11-year-old special-needs son, Jake (David Mazouz), scribbles strangely prescient numbers into notebooks but has never uttered a word. In each episode of the drama, Jake connects those numbers to...

This mid-season, we're being asked repeatedly to take giant leaps of faith with shows that dare to be different, that refuse to settle for the same old TV formulas, despite all of the risk that entails. Risk is the operating principal behind shows like NBC's Smash (Feb. 6), a dazzling but dauntingly inside (theater) baseball look at the making of a Broadway musical. Ditto ABC's The River (Feb. 7), a terrifying supernatural quest into an exotic heart of darkness in the Amazon jungle that's not for the faint-hearted. Later in the season, not yet scheduled, NBC will offer up Awake, a gripping but grim psychological drama about a grieving man trapped between two possible dream worlds.
