Fox announced Monday its premiere dates for the 2012-2013 TV season with some notable changes.

While “Premiere Week” technically begins the week of September 24th, many networks continue to blur the lines of the traditional launch week, debuting some shows early to get a jump on each other and grab viewers early. Check out NBC’s fall premiere plans here, announced last week.

So look for the splashy, two-night Season 2 premiere of “The X Factor,” starring new judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, to get out of the gate early, along with the return of “Glee” on a new night and the new series “The Mob Doctor.”

Two weeks later, viewers will find a new comedy block on Tuesday nights and sci-fi fanatics will welcome/lament the premiere of the fifth and final season of Fox’s cult hit “Fringe.”
