Fox announced Thursday that the sixth and final season of the Fox musical comedy will kick off with a two-hour premiere on Friday, Jan. 9 at 8/7c. The show will move to its new timeslot on Fridays at 9/8c the following week and wrap its run with a two-hour series finale on...

Worse, that fight spills into the Jeffersonian when Arastoo's dissertation proposal is rejected by Dr. Brennan and Cam tries to change Brennan's mind. Unfortunately for Cam, she'll quickly learn that opening her mouth has only made things worse between her and Arastoo.
I don't understand why Rick would let Glen and Maggie leave with Abraham on the The Walking Dead. Shouldn't they all stick together? — Valerie

New shows were no match for Scandal and football.
The ABC drama was Thursday's top-rated scripted show, drawing 10.4 million viewers and a 3.3 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, trumping the series premieres of Fox's Gracepoint (4.8 million, 1.2), and NBC's Bad Judge (5.9 million, 1.3) and A to Z (4.8 million, 1.2). All three were down ...
