After the wave of cancellations and pick-ups this weekend, the TV networks are finally starting to set their fall line-ups accordingly. On Monday morning, Fox announced a major shake-up to the superhero landscape with the fall schedule.
First of all, Gotham will be moving to a slot later in the week. Instead of its 8pm ET place on Monday nights, which is where the show currently resides, Gotham will shift to the same time on Thursday nights. This puts it head-to-head with NBC's Will & Grace revival series.
Lucifer, the other DC comics property on Fox, will move up one hour, taking Gotham's former slot.
With Gotham on Thursdays, and Supergirl having the 8 pm slot on Monday nights, The Gifted should be able to flourish as the only comic-based series airing at that time.
