In a scheduling shift announced Thursday, the second season
of Fox's Touch is being delayed until next year.
The Kiefer Sutherland drama, which was originally slated to
premiere Oct. 26 at 8 p.m., will now debut its sophomore season in January. The
exact date and time is yet to be announced. The Gordon Ramsay series Kitchen
Nightmares will instead premiere its fifth season in Touch's slot,
which airs before the net's sci-fi series Fringe.
After premiering to a solid 3.2 rating with adults 18-49
(leading out of American Idol), the drama struggled to find an audience,
registering just a 1.3 rating for its finale.
