Fox Pushes ‘Touch’ Return By Week, Makes It Two-Hour; Sets ‘Mob Doctor’ End Date

The second season of Fox‘s Touch, originally slated for a fall launch and then pushed to February 1, will have to wait another week. The series starring Kiefer Sutherland will kick off its sophomore season with a two-hour premiere on Friday, February 8. Starting the following week, the drama will settle into its regular Friday 9 PM slot, likely following Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, which currently airs in the time period.

Meanwhile, Fox is still not confirming that Mob Doctor has been cancelled, though the struggling freshman is not getting a back order beyond the original 13 episodes, making cancellation a foregone conclusion. All of them will air — Fox has set the airing pattern for the remaining four episodes of Mob Doctor‘s 13-episode order, which includes a mix of broadcasts in its regular Monday time slot and outings on the dead-as-a-doornail Saturday night: Saturday, December 29; New Year’s Eve, Monday, December 31; Saturday, January 5; and Monday, January 7.
