Fox is announcing premiere dates for new series World's Funniest Fails (working title) (Jan. 16), Backstrom (Jan. 22), The Last Man On Earth (March 1) and Weird Loners (March 31); and returning series Masterchef Junior (Jan. 6), Glee (Jan. 9), The Following (March 2), Hell's Kitchen (March 3) and Bones (March 26). New unscripted comedy World's Funniest Fails (wt) premieres on Friday, Jan. 16 at 8:00PM ET/PT.

New ensemble comedy Weird Loners debuts Tuesday, March 31 at 9:30PM ET/PT. From writer Michael J. Weithorn (The King of Queens) and director Jake Kasdan (New Girl), the un-romantic comedy follows four single mid-30-somethings (Becki Newton, Ugly Betty; Zachary Knighton, Happy Endings; Nate Torrence, Hello Ladies; and newcomer Meera Rohit Kumbhani), who are unexpectedly thrust into one another's lives and form an unlikely bond in a Queens, NY, townhouse. Glee takes its final bow with a sixth and final 13-episode season starting with a special two-hour premiere event Friday, Jan. 9 from 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT. The series makes its time period premiere Friday, Jan. 16 at 9:00PM ET/PT and air all-new episodes for 11 consecutive weeks, culminating in a special two-hour Series Finale on Friday, March 20 from 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT.
