Additionally, returning dramas 9-1-1 and Empire will return in the spring, when new dramas Filthy Rich and neXt also will premiere.

Among the highlights: Flirty Dancing, the innovative new series that is part performance, part blind date, and all about romantic chemistry, previews Sunday, Dec. 29 from 8:00-9:00 PM ET/5:00-6:00 PT live to all time zones, following the NFL on Fox doubleheader. The series then makes its time period premiere Wednesday, Jan. 1 from 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT hosted by Jenna Dewan. Entering its eighth season, hit Tim Allen sitcom Last Man Standing returns to Fox with all-new back-to-back episodes, beginning Thursday, Jan. 2 from 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT. Following Last Man Standing, a new sheriff comes to town on the all-new police drama Deputy at 9:00PM ET/PT.

New comedy Outmatched premieres Thursday, Jan. 23 at 8:30 PM ET/PT. Outmatched is a multi-camera family comedy about a blue-collar couple in Atlantic City trying to raise four kids - three of whom just happen to be certified geniuses starring Jason Biggs and Maggie Lawson. The series also stars Tisha Campbell (Dr. Ken, My Wife and Kids), Jack Stanton (The Mick), Connor Kalopsis (The Grinder), Ashley Boettcher (Lost in Oz) and Oakley Bull (Beautiful Boy). New animated comedy Duncanville premieres Sunday, Feb. 16 at 8:30 PM ET/PT. The animated family comedy is centered around a spectacularly average 15-year-old boy, and the people in his world. Amy Poehler voices the series' two leading characters, Duncan and his mother, Annie. The series also features the voices of Emmy Award winner Ty Burrell (Modern Family), Emmy Award nominee Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel and Oates), Betsy Sodaro, Yassir Lester and Zach Cherry, as well as guest voices Rashida Jones and Wiz Khalifa.


Batwoman and Nancy Drew

The CW Network has given full season orders to both of its new Fall series, Batwoman and Nancy Drew, bringing their first season totals to 22 episodes each. With The CW securing full in-season streaming rights to all new series starting this season, every episode of Batwoman and Nancy Drew will exclusively stream on The CW's digital platforms the day after broadcast throughout the season, so viewers can catch up at any point during the season on CWTV.com and The CW app – for free, without authentication, subscription or log-in required.

Airing Sundays at 8:00pm ET/PT, Batwoman is set three years after the mysterious disappearance of Batman, and Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kate (star Ruby Rose) will have to become what her father loathes, a dark knight vigilante, soaring through the streets of Gotham as Batwoman. Airing Wednesdays at 9:00pm ET/PT, Nancy Drew (star Kennedy McMann) is a brilliant teenage detective whose sense of self had come from solving mysteries in her hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine – until her mother's untimely death derails Nancy's college plans. Devastated by her mother’s passing, Nancy swears off crime-solving while crossing off the days until she can re-apply to college. But when a socialite is murdered, Nancy finds herself a prime suspect in the crime, along with a group of other teens present at the scene.
