Fox sets premiere date for The Orville
As announced at the upfronts, the new Seth MacFarlane space dramedy Orville
is getting a platform launch behind NFL doubleheaders. The series will
debut on Sunday, Sept. 10, with two airings before the official
beginning of the season, both getting an NFL boost. Orville
will move into its regular Thursday 9 PM time slot during premiere week.
That hour looks less daunting after NBC reversed its decision to move
breakout drama This Is Us there.
