Fox is shifting its midseason plans.

Kiefer Sutherland’s new drama Touch is getting an American Idol lead-in, which is going to change things for Bones and House.

Here’s the deal: Instead of airing on Mondays, Touch will premiere on Thursday, March 22 after an Idol results show. (Not to be confused with the recent Touch preview).

On April 2, Bones will move to Monday nights at 8 p.m., pushing House to 9 p.m. Fox is also going to air a House retrospective special on May 21 at 8 p.m. before the drama’s series finale.

All the previously ordered episodes of The Finder and Alcatraz will air, with Finder wrapping things up on March 8 and Alcatraz having a two-hour closer on March 26.

Fox also has a two-hour 25th Anniversary Special celebrating the network to air on Sunday, April 22, so mark your calendars.
