Fox Schedules Simpsons/Family Guy Crossover, Late Start for Mulaney

'Event' series Gracepoint set for October

Fox's Fall schedule is officially set, with the long-awaited Simpsons-Family Guy crossover episodes on the official docket (Kill Peter, Sideshow Bob! Kill everyone but Meg!) and a surprisingly confident Sunday debut for next-gen-American-Idol-wannabe Utopia. Time will tell how it fares opposite the evening's usual lineup of high-powered dramas.

The rollout will take a solid two months for the new shows, culminating with Fox's Seinfeld wannabe, Mulaney, making a tardy debut on Oct. 5, and Masterchef Junior only returning on Nov. 7. Should be interesting.

Oh, and Glee is only going to be 13 episodes in its final season, not 22. Here's the schedule lineup:
