Fox looks to sci-fi, fantasy this fall; MacFarlane in space

Meanwhile, Walden's fellow Fox TV Group chair and CEO, Gary Newman, confirmed that there are "no plans at this point" for more Scream Queens. "It's definitely not something we want to do every season", she said.

On Sundays, it's NFL on Fox during football season, then The OT and Bob's Burgers, The Simpsons, new comedy Ghosted, Family Guy and Last Man on Earth.

MIDSEASON: Angela Bassett ("American Horror Story") stars in Murphy's "9-1-1-" drama; Emily VanCamp ("Revenge", "Captain America: Civil War", "Everwood") and Matt Czuchry ("The Good Wife") headline Fox's "The Resident" medical drama; and Dylan McDermott ("The Practice", "American Horror Story", "Hostages") plays an airline pilot in "LA to Vegas" from Farrell, Steve Levitan ("Modern Family") and Lon Zimmet ("Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt").

Fox will have music as well, with returning series "Empire" and "Star" and the live musicals "Rent" and "A Christmas Story".

From executive producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Lon Zimmet, and executive producer/director Steve Levitan, LA to Vegas is a workplace comedy about an airline crew and the eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take a no-frills roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with one goal in mind - to come back a victor. Scott and Robinson also serve as executive producers on the series.

The next chapter of The X-Files, a 10-episode second installment of the event series, once again will be executive-produced by creator Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning in their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. The razor-thin margins are apparent in the live-same-day ratings: Per Nielsen, the shows Fox renewed for next season averaged a 1.2 rating in the target demo, which works out to 1.54 million adults 18 to 49. Newman noted that 24: Legacy is "very much still in the mix", but star Corey Hawkins' current Broadway commitment prevented it from showing up on the fall schedule.

Walden addressed a question about American Idol ending up on ABC. Walden said Fox was interested in bringing back the show in 2020 with changes for a new generation of viewers but couldn't reach an agreement with producer FremantleMedia.

"It was too early to bring the show back, and all our research and fan forums supported that", Walden said. "We want to make it special".

Fox will present its 2017-18 schedule to media buyers and advertisers today at 4 p.m.at the Beacon Theatre.
