Fox has unveiled a pair of series premiere dates for midseason. Airline comedy LA to Vegas will touch down at 9 PM Tuesday, January 2, and medical drama The Resident begins operations with a special premiere at 10 PM Sunday, January 21, following the NFC Championship Game. It moves to its regular time slot of 9 PM Mondays the following night.
Fox also said The Mick will return in its new time slot at 9:30 PM Tuesday following the LA to Vegas premiere.
LA to Vegas follows an airline crew and the eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take a no-frills roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with one goal in mind: to come back a winner. It stars Kim Matula, Ed Weeks, Nathan Lee Graham and Olivia Macklin, with Peter Stormare and Dylan McDermott. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, creator/showruner Lon Zimmet, Chris Henchy, Owen Burke, director Steve Levitan, Josh Bycel, Jonathan Fener and Jeff Morton serve as executive producers.

It stars Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp, Manish Dayal, Moran Atias, Merrin Dungey and Shaunette Renée Wilson, with Melina Kanakaredes and Bruce Greenwood.
