OutFoxed: Marvel’s The Gifted Chases Gotham Out Of Monday Night

Fox has something for you whether you’re a Marvel fan of a DC fan this fall, and they’re even pairing them up:  Marvel Mutant-based series The Gifted finds a place on the schedule right next to WB/DC’s Lucifer. That’s an interesting combination, but it does mean that Monday mainstay Gotham will be moved to Thursdays.  The Gifted tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers and stars Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker.  As for Gotham… remind me to tell you a story about that some day. Multiple comic-based series jostling for a place on the television schedule… what a time to be alive.

Fox’s 2017-2018 fall schedule has arrived and it’s both familiar and new. Some nights were just copy and pasted from last year to this year’s schedule, while others are entirely new as Fox tries out something different.
The biggest change may stoke the rivalry between DC Comics and Marvel Comics, as Fox’s new darling Marvel’s The Gifted makes its debut on Monday nights, the same evening that Gotham — based on characters from DC Comics — used to rule over. The Gifted will pair with Lucifer on Mondays as Fox continues to try to hammer down a genre night, while previous Monday mainstay

Gotham moves over to Thursdays at 8pm, where it will pair with Seth MacFarlane’s new live-action sci-fi comedy The Orville.
