Third Season of MASTERCHEF JUNIOR Starts Cooking Tuesday, January 6; Special Two-Hour THE FOLLOWING Premieres Monday, March 2; HELL'S KITCHEN Opens Tuesday, March 3; and BONES Returns Thursday, March 26

FOX is announcing premiere dates for new series WORLD'S FUNNIEST FAILS (working title) (Jan. 16), BACKSTROM (Jan. 22), THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (March 1) and WEIRD LONERS (March 31); and returning series MASTERCHEF JUNIOR (Jan. 6), GLEE (Jan. 9), THE FOLLOWING (March 2), HELL'S KITCHEN (March 3) and BONES (March 26).

New unscripted comedy WORLD'S FUNNIEST FAILS (wt) premieres on Friday, Jan. 16 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The irreverent one-hour series is based on the hit YouTube channel, FailArmy, which showcases the best "epic fail" viral videos in the most entertaining ways possible. Each week a panel of comedians will analyze the videos which have exploded across the internet, with the goal of awarding one with the ultimate "Fail of the Week."

BACKSTROM, the offbeat crime procedural starring three-time Emmy Award nominee Rainn Wilson ("The Office," "Six Feet Under"), premieres Thursday, Jan. 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following AMERICAN IDOL XIV's time period premiere (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Created and executive-produced by Hart Hanson (BONES), the series follows Detective EVERETT BACKSTROM, an unhealthy, offensive, irascible - albeit brilliant - detective who sees the worst in everyone, and he's usually right.

End-of-the-world comedy THE LAST MAN ON EARTH premieres with a special one-hour event of back-to-back episodes Sunday, March 1 (9:00-9:30/9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), and then moves into its regular time period the following week on Sunday, March 8 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). Executive-produced, created by and starring Will Forte ("Nebraska," "Saturday Night Live"), and executive-produced and directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord ("The Lego Movie," "22 Jump Street"), the single-camera comedy chronicles the life and adventures of an average guy - and humanity's last hope - who discovers what life is like when no one is telling you what you can and cannot do.

New ensemble comedy WEIRD LONERS debuts Tuesday, March 31 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). From writer Michael J. Weithorn ("The King of Queens") and director Jake Kasdan (NEW GIRL), the un-romantic comedy follows four single mid-30-somethings (Becki Newton, "Ugly Betty"; Zachary Knighton, "Happy Endings"; Nate Torrence, "Hello Ladies"; and newcomer Meera Rohit Kumbhani), who are unexpectedly thrust into one another's lives and form an unlikely bond in a Queens, NY, townhouse.

GLEE takes its final bow with a sixth and final 13-episode season starting with a special two-hour premiere event Friday, Jan. 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). New Directions' original star, RACHEL BERRY (Golden Globe Award nominee Lea Michele), comes home to Lima, after her humiliating failure as a TV actress, and discovers that SUE SYLVESTER (Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch) has banished the arts at McKinley. Throughout its closing season, McKinley alumnae will return to say "good-bye" to the award-winning and groundbreaking musical comedy. The series makes its time period premiere Friday, Jan. 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and air all-new episodes for 11 consecutive weeks, culminating in a special two-hour Series Finale on Friday, March 20 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Returning series premiering this winter include MASTERCHEF JUNIOR, which returns for its third season of talented kids, astounding culinary abilities and delicious challenges. Featuring host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur Joe Bastianich and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot, cycle three of MASTERCHEF JUNIOR gets cooking Tuesday, Jan. 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), leading into all-new episodes of NEW GIRL (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and THE MINDY PROJECT (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).

On Monday, March 2, hit psychological thriller THE FOLLOWING returns for its third shocking season with a special two-hour Season Three premiere event (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and moves to its regular time period the following week on Monday, March 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

The first week of March also sees Chef Gordon Ramsay firing up a new season of HELL'S KITCHEN, beginning Tuesday, March 3 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). BONES returns with all-new cases Thursday, March 26 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), followed by BACKSTROM (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Additional premiere dates and schedule details to be announced.
