FOX will do a major shuffle of its schedule in early 2016, with a couple veteran shows moving to new nights, “Empire” taking a sizable break and the final season of “American Idol” eventually setting up camp on Thursday nights.

“Sleepy Hollow” moves to Friday nights starting Feb. 5, while “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” joins the returning “New Girl,” “Grandfathered” and “The Grinder” on Tuesdays in January. “Idol” premieres Jan. 6, new comedies “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” and “Bordertown” on Jan. 10 and “Second Chance” (formerly “Lookingglass,” formerly “The Frankenstein Code”) Jan. 13.

“Empire,” meanwhile, won’t be back until March 30, with “Second Chance” leading out of “Idol” in January and February and “Rosewood” returning in early March. “Bones” and “The Last Man on Earth” aren’t on the schedule and are presumably being held in reserve to plug any holes that might pop up.

It is, quite simply, a lot. Here’s the full rundown, with new shows in italics. All times Eastern/Pacific unless noted.
