FOX announced the fall return dates for some of its heavy-hitters, including three new series (The Big Leap, Our Kind of People & Alter Ego)- which means fans of The Masked Singer and the network's Sunday night "Animation Domination" block can start setting their alarms and tagging their calendars. First up, the sixth season of The Masked Singer kicks off with a two-night premiere event on Wednesday, September 22, and Thursday, September 23. Then three days later (September 26), FOX's killer animated Sunday line-up returns to start new seasons: The Simpsons at 8 p.m., The Great North at 8:30 p.m., Bob's Burgers at 9 p.m., and Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy at 9:30 p.m. In addition, Thursday Night Football will begin its run on October 7 (Los Angeles Rams / Seattle Seahawks), and WWE Friday Night SmackDown will continue to air on (wait for it… wait for it…) Friday nights.
