The cancellation of “Lone Star” has led to some more scheduling shifts for FOX — including the delay of “Human Target’s” second-season premiere.
The network is moving the “Human Target” premiere — which had been scheduled for Friday (Oct. 1) — back to Nov. 17. The show will air at 8 p.m. ET Wednesdays, the timeslot where it aired with decent success last year. The series averaged 9.5 million viewers per episode last year and led the time period in viewers and most demos during its fun.
“Human Target” is moving into the Wednesday spot vacated by “Lie to Me,” which is moving to Mondays starting Oct. 4 in the wake of “Lone Star” being pulled. Back-to-back episodes of “Hell’s Kitchen” will continue to air on Wednesdays until mid-November.
On Fridays, meanwhile, FOX will plug in reruns of “House” at 8 p.m. to pair with “The Good Guys” at 9.
Season 2 of “Human Target” will introduce two new female characters: billionaire Ilsa Pucci (Indira Varma, “Rome”), who asks Chance (Mark Valley) for protection and becomes his benefactor, and a mysterious operative named Ames (Janet Montgomery), who has a past with Winston (Chi McBride). Jackie Earle Haley returns as Guerrero.
