Fox Boss on Growing Tuesday Comedies, the Future of X Factor and New Details on Gotham

Less than 24 hours after Brooklyn Nine-Nine's surprise double wins at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly touted the network's Tuesday slate of comedies while also saying that he hopes for growth.

Promising (not for the first time) to schedule and develop shows year round with fewer "fallow" periods of repeats, while changing up the way this new wave of "event" series is being programmed — most notably, launching the 12-hour 24 reboot next May, with the M. Night Shyamalan miniseries Wayward Pines to follow in July — Reilly declared, "The one-size-fits-all business is over."
