Home Free is back on Fox tonight at 9p and there have been a lot of changes to the show. Even though there have been a lot of changes, the one thing that hasn’t changed is all the heart!
Mike Holmes is back and this time Tim Tebow is helping him out. Another change is that the contestants are not working as couples, but by themselves. Instead of building their Dream House, they are building it for their hero. Each contestant has a different hero, like one man’s whose mother-in-law helped him through cancer or another person who wants to give the house to the person who gave their parent a kidney.
But before they can give them a house, they have to compete. It starts out the same, where the winner of the first challenge gets to pick their team. But how they figure out who goes to the elimination challenge is different. On tonight’s season premiere one contestant will do something that will have everyone turn against them. It will be interesting to see what happens next week to him.
But before we get to that, we see what happen when someone is eliminated. That is where the heart comes in and because of that I am so happy the show is back!
Over on NBC at 9p, Aquarius is back and this season starts out on August 9, 1969. A day that not only lived in infamy for Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony), but also for the whole world. That is day his followers killed Sharon Tate and 3 of her friends.
As that date plays out, we go back to 1967 and some of Manson’s followers have befriended Dennis Wilson from the Beach Boys. They will eventually move in with him and that will change things for Manson. We will see him start to evolve more into the man we know.
Then there’s Hodiak (David Duchovny) who has no idea that someday he will be investigating the man that shocked the world.
Now that Aquarius is tackling the Tate-LaBianca Murders, it is so much more interesting to watch. While it was interesting to see him become the cult figure in the first season, we also want to get to that climax moment. Now both of those moments have been merged together for this season.
Fox announced when their new shows will debut and when their old ones back. Unlike the other networks, they are all rolling out in the same week. Which I appreciate because I hate guessing when my DVR is going to record something.
So mark your calendars for the week of September 19th for Lucifer, Empire, The Simpsons and more.

A few weeks ago, Fox announced that they were bringing back Prison Break and they are already filming the new season.
Today, while filming a scene for the drama, an iron bar accidentally fell on Dominic Purcell’s head and he was airlifted to a hospital. The closest one was two hours away, but thankfully due to the quick thinking by his girlfriend AnnaLynne McCord and Christina Northrup, he got the right care as quickly as possible.
Tests revealed that he did not suffer any serious injuries, but he did break his nose in two places. Instead of being upset by it, he joked, “I got a free nose job out of it.”
He wasn’t the only one who could laugh about it afterwards, McCord said, “That hard head is good for something.” I say afterwards because in that photo of them in the helicopter, you can see the fear in her face. Fear that was alleviated when he was given the all-clear.
Once he was released from the hospital, he was flown back to the set and immediately went back to work. Proving he is just as tough as his character.
On Monday, Fox announced its Fall schedule and today they announced that they are already making changes to it. It looked like Pitch struck out and was going to be sent to Spring Training, but now the drama about the first female baseball player will debut in the Fall. The show takes over Bones’ Thursday at 9p slot in the Fall and the concluding procedural will now come back in the New Year at that time.
Pitch was supposed to air on Tuesdays at 9p in 2017, but since it moved up that means that Prison Break will now be held up at that time.
I get why Pitch is now debuting earlier in the season, Fox airs the Playoff and World Series and its getting a lot of positive buzz, but I wish they would’ve let Bones keep its slot and slated Scream Queens for the Spring. Now, that I think about it, it works out better for Bones because it won’t be up against Thursday Night Football on CBS and NBC.
All I can say about Fox‘s Fall schedules is that I am glad I have a DVR. Without I would never know when the shows that I watch are on.
When it comes to the new shows, I won’t comment on them until I see the trailers. Seeing is believing how good or atrocious they will be.
FOX FALL 2016 SCHEDULE
8:00-9:00 PM GOTHAM
