Below you can find Fox's new fall schedule, along with a list of pilots the network has picked up to series for the 2012-13 season.
The Big Bang Theory was Thursday's top-rated show again, but Fox took the night overall thanks to American Idol.
Big Bang improved 12 percent to 13.27 million viewers and a 4.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. It was a great night for CBS as it saw growths for all of its shows.

Fox edged CBS by two-tenths for the demo win with Idol (15 million, 3.9), which was ...
Community, 30 Rock, Touch
This time of year can be brutal for TV fans. In the next few weeks, a number of shows will be canceled to make room for fall's new kids. The sad reality is that for every The Playboy Club or Charlie's Angels sent to the TV graveyard with little to no fuss, there's a handful of beloved shows that we're not ready to part with just yet. Behold, here are the shows we're desperately hoping the execs will give one more chance. (Click here to see our picks in photo gallery form!)
32 Bubble Shows: Which will survive?
30 Rock (NBC)
So Alec Baldwin continues to announce he's leaving the show. So viewership is, OK, the smallest it's ever been. So it isn't exactly a spring chicken, having been on the air for six seasons. So? So what! It's still, for our money, one of the sharpest comedies on network television, with a top-tier cast able to handle Tina Fey's fast and furious funnies, and TV's best guest stars, who just love to come and play (and play against type — More. Jon. Hamm. Please.) Please, NBC sirs, can we have s'more?...
Danny Pudi, Donald Glover
Welcome to May sweeps (albeit still in April) and, more important, the countdown to the end of the official broadcast season on May 23. Meaning an end, for now, to those pesky repeats and the start-and-stop scheduling of favorite shows. Reason enough to celebrate? Wait until you see what NBC has in store for you tonight (or at least for those choosy few who gravitate toward the network's better Thursday night comedies).
Sela Ward and Gary Sinise
It's nail-biting time for fans of programs that haven't yet been picked up for next season. As network executives make their final decisions next month on which shows to renew and which ones to cancel, low ratings across the board aren't making their jobs any easier.
It used to be pretty clear which shows were hits and what could be deemed a flop. But this spring, primetime ratings have once again slumped to levels ...
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...
Amy Poehler and Bradley Whitford
Parks and Recreation returned after a month off in a new timeslot to the same numbers.
Now in the post-Office berth, the NBC comedy drew 3.5 million viewers and a 1.8 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demographic ...
Scandal may be a keeper for ABC.
Bucking the second-week slump that usually plagues new series, the ABC drama grew Thursday, drawing 7.5 million viewers and a 2.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Scandal topped the 10 o'clock hour, which included ...
Henry Ian Cusick and Kerry Washington
Scandal didn't break out big, but it got off to a decent start for ABC.
Shonda Rhimes' new series premiered Thursday to 7.4 million viewers and a 2.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, putting it ...
