NEW YORK – Simon Cowell returns to Fox’s schedule this fall as his new talent show “The X Factor” mimics the schedule that “American Idol” uses.

Fox introduced a schedule for next season that includes eight new series, including the long-awaited debut of “Terra Nova,” Steven Spielberg’s drama that sends a futuristic family back to prehistoric times.

Fox is also adding comedies, featuring Zooey Deschanel and Jaime Pressly.

“The X Factor” has Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Cheryl Cole as judges. Its performance shows will run from 90 minutes on Wednesdays and there will be a one-hour results show on Thursdays.
