FOX Spring 2012 Schedule: 'Bones' Is Back

FOX Spring 2012 Schedule: 'Bones' Is Back This spring, a FOX ratings juggernaut returns alongside a few other favorites, and Gordon Ramsay introduces a brand new circle of hospitality industry Hell.

Highlighting the network's spring set, "Bones" returns Thursday April 5 at 9 PM ET/PT to resume and complete its seventh acclaimed season. Prior to the latest "American Idol" season kicking off, the Feds-and-anthropologists procedural dominated Thursday ratings earlier this season  easily. Alongside "Idol," it could be the further edge FOX over CBS and "The Big Bang Theory."

Elsewhere, "Breaking In" begins its second season Tuesday March 6 at 9:30 PM. "I Hate My Teenage Daughter" premieres in its new time slot Wednesday April 4 at 9:30 PM. "Glee" presents the third-season favorite's winter finale Feb. 21 and begins its spring campaign April 10 in its usual Tuesday 8 PM frame. In between, "Raising Hope" will make its Tuesday 8 PM premiere on March 6.

Finally, after two weeks of "Kitchen Nightmares" airing Fridays from 8-10 PM starting March 2, hospitality taskmaster Gordon Ramsay presents his latest torture opus "Hotel Hell," debuting at 8 PM on April 6.
