‘Alert: Missing Persons Unit,’ ‘Animal Control,’ ‘The Cleaning Lady’ Set Midseason Premiere Dates at Fox

As Hollywood returns to production following this year’s historic WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, Fox has announced winter and spring premiere dates for its returning scripted series including “Alert: Missing Persons Unit,” “The Cleaning Lady,” and its latest comedy “Animal Control.”

Also, as part of its midseason rollout, Fox is breaking up its “Animation Domination” stalwarts, moving “Family Guy” to Wednesday — marking the first time it hasn’t aired on Sundays in two decades.
