Fox will expand its Tuesday prime-time lineup in order to air its regularly scheduled comedies, as well as the previously unaired X Factor footage from Wednesday's rain-delayed debacle.
New episodes of Raising Hope, Ben and Kate and New Girl will kick off the night at 8/7c, followed by an one-hour episode of The X Factor starting at 9:30/8:30c. The episode will show the conclusion of the Judges' Homes round — when the judges pick their four finalists — that was cut off Wednesday on the East Coast. The episode will recap the footage that already aired, but won't show it again.
Fox had initially said Thursday that it will bump its Tuesday night comedies back a week to air the full two-hour episode of The X Factor. It's possible that the plan was scrapped to accommodate Halloween episodes for some of the shows.
