Fox Fall 2012 Premiere Dates: 'The X Factor' Season 2 Kicks Off In September

Fox is kicking off its Fall 2012 season with the help of one of the world's most-popular singers: Britney Spears. "The X Factor" will premiere on Wed., Sept. 12 with new judges Spears and Demi Lovato. Part two airs on Thurs., Sept. 13 at 8 p.m. ET, leading in to "Glee" on its new night and time, Thursdays at 9 p.m.

Adorkable hit comedy "New Girl" gets two new episodes on Tues., Sept. 25, the first at 8 p.m. followed by the series premiere of "Ben and Kate," and the second at 9 p.m. Mindy Kaling's new series "The Mindy Project" follows at 9:30 p.m. The official Season 2 premiere of "New Girl" is at 9 p.m., but the 8 p.m. episode will be new and from Season 2, according to Fox.

Wondering where "The Following" is? You'll have to wait until midseason to see Kevin Bacon's new series. We've seen it, and if our first reactions are any indication, it'll be worth the wait.

After "Touch" premieres on Fri., Oct. 26, "Kitchen Nightmares" will return later in the season.
