Fox has announced its fall premiere dates, and it's pretty much a straightforward schedule: Premiere week starts Monday, Sept. 19 at 8/7c with the Season 3 premiere of Gotham, followed by the Season 2 premiere of Lucifer.

The network's new fall shows all premiere that week: Lethal Weapon starts on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8/7c, Pitch debuts on Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9/8c, The Exorcist bows on Friday, Sept. 23 at 9/8c, and Son of Zorn debuts on Sunday, Sept. 24, at 8:30/7:30c.

Keep in mind that Pitch, a dramedy about the first female in the major leagues, was added to the fall schedule after the upfronts, in what most observers thought was a move that would help the show.
