*Michael Ealy’s new drama series “Almost Human,” originally slated to premiere on Monday, Nov. 4, will now launch as a two-night event on Sunday, Nov. 17 and Monday, Nov. 18, Fox announced.

The network is making the change to take advantage of the football doubleheader lead-in on Sunday, Nov. 17 and try to keep the momentum going with the second episode of “Almost Human” airing the next night in its regular Monday 8 p.m. time period.

The decision also will help breakout “Sleepy Hollow,” keeping its successful pairing with “Bones” for a couple more weeks before “Bones” relocates to Fridays on Nov. 15.

That same night, “Raising Hope” will have its fourth season premiere with one hour of all-new back-to-back episodes.

Watch a promo of “Almost Human” below.
