This winter, FOX heats up with the all-new ultimate quiz show “The Floor,” hosted by Rob Lowe, premiering Tuesday, Jan. 2 (9-10 p.m. ET/PT), preceded by musical game show “Celebrity Name that Tune” (8-9 p.m.). “The Floor” is a spectacular battle of the brains in which 81 contestants stand on 81 squares on a massive game show floor, competing for a $250,000 grand prize. All-new episodes of “Celebrity Name That Tune” continue, testing the musical knowledge of athletes, musicians, actors, TV personalities, comedians and Olympians all playing for their favorite charities with a chance to win over $150,000. 

From executive producer and Academy and Golden Globe-winner Jamie Foxx, “We Are Family” is hosted by Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor, comedian and producer Anthony Anderson (“black-ish”), alongside his mother, Doris Bowman, commonly known as “Mama Doris.” The all-new music-centric guessing game show showcasing non-famous relatives of celebrities performing amazing solo performances and duets with their hidden famous family member, premieres Wednesday, Jan. 3 (9-10 p.m.), following the return of hit competition show “I Can See Your Voice” (8-9 p.m.). Host and executive producer Ken Jeong, joined by Emmy Award-nominated actress Cheryl Hines and Daytime Emmy Award-winning television host and vocalist Adrienne Bailon-Houghton, return with a rotating panel of celebrity detectives to help one contestant tell the difference between good and bad singers … without ever hearing them sing a note. 

“Animation Sundays” kick off Jan. 7, immediately following the FOX NFL Doubleheader (8-8:30 p.m.), with a special preview of the all-new series, “Grimsburg.” Starring and executive-produced by Emmy Award-winner Jon Hamm (“The Morning Show,” “Fargo,” “Mad Men”), Grimsburg centers on Marvin Flute (Hamm), who may be the greatest detective ever to catch a cannibal clown and correctly identify a mid-century modern armoire. But there’s one mystery he still can’t crack: himself. To do that, he must return to Grimsburg, a town where everyone has a secret or three, and redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow detectives, his ferocious ex-wife and his lovably unstable son. 

Following “Grimsburg,” “Animation Domination” continues with new episodes of “Krapopolis” (8:30-9 p.m.), “Bob’s Burgers” (9-9:30 p.m.) and the season four premiere of “The Great North” (9:30-10 p.m.). “Grimsburg” and “The Great North” make their time period premieres on Sunday, Feb. 18, as the night kicks off with all-new episodes of “The Simpsons” (8-8:30 p.m.) and “Krapopolis” (8:30-9 p.m.), followed by “The Great North” (9-9:30 p.m.) and “Grimsburg” (9:30-10 p.m.).

Entering its fourth season, “The Great North” is an animated comedy series following the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family, as single dad Beef (Nick Offerman) does his best to keep his bunch of kids close – especially his only daughter, Judy (Jenny Slate), whose artistic dreams lead her away from the family fishing boat and into the glamorous world of the local mall.

Starting on Monday, Jan. 22, “TMZ Investigates” (8-9 p.m.) and “America’s Most Wanted” (9-10 p.m.) return to FOX. “TMZ Investigates” will give viewers an inside look at some of today's most topical and intriguing stories. One of television’s most iconic crime series, “America’s Most Wanted” returns to FOX breaking down some of the toughest cases with a team of experts representing law enforcement units. Among its many accomplishments, “America’s Most Wanted,” since its original debut in 1988, has helped capture more than 1,190 criminals.

“Gordon Ramsay’s Next Level Chef” returns for season three with a special preview on Sunday, Jan. 28 (10-11:10 p.m.), immediately following the NFC Championship Game on FOX. The series will have its time period premiere Thursday, Feb. 1 (8-9 p.m.). “Next Level Chef” is the next evolution in cooking competitions, as Ramsay has designed a one-of-a-kind culinary gauntlet, set on an iconic stage. Over three stories high, each floor contains a stunningly different kitchen. For the first time ever, “Next Level Chef” will hold audition rounds in the first three episodes, where home, pro, and social media chefs will compete against one another within their group for the chance to be drafted by one of the mentors. Joined by two elite names in the food world, chefs Nyesha Arrington and Richard Blais, Ramsay and his co-mentors leave no stone unturned, as they each recruit a group of the talented chefs and take them under their wings.

Season two of “Farmer Wants a Wife,” the most successful dating show in the world, airing in 32 countries and resulting in 201 marriages and 514 children … and counting, returns Thursday, Feb. 1 (9-10 p.m.). In a trend that’s been sweeping America, there’s been a migration from city-centers to suburban and rural locales, and with that, love follows. Hosted by superstar entertainer and Grammy Award-winner Jennifer Nettles, this upcoming series follows four new farmers in search of real, lasting love.

Beginning Tuesday, March 5, thrilling crime dramas “The Cleaning Lady” (8-9 p.m.) and “Alert: Missing Persons Unit” (9-10 p.m.) launch new seasons. Based on the hit original Argentine series, “The Cleaning Lady” follows Thony De La Rosa (Élodie Yung), a whip-smart Cambodian doctor who comes to the U.S. for a medical treatment to save her ailing son, but when the system fails and attempts to push her down, Thony refuses to be marginalized, and instead takes matters into her own hands. Forced to use unconventional measures to protect her family and save the ones she loves, Thony further crosses the moral line as she gets deeper entwined in the criminal underbelly of Las Vegas. “The Cleaning Lady” continues to examine the plight of undocumented immigrants and their difficulties accessing necessary health care and resources. It is a story of empowerment, resilience, and explores the struggles and triumphs of the human spirit. It asks us all if the ends justify the means.

Co-created by John Eisendrath and superstar Jamie Foxx, “Alert: Missing Persons Unit” is a procedural drama set in the Philadelphia Police Department’s missing persons unit (MPU). Each episode features a heart-pounding, life-or-death search for a missing person headed by police officers Jason Grant (Scott Caan) and Nikki Batista (Dania Ramirez), who together with the team work to find the missing, abducted or kidnapped, and help reunite them with their loved ones before it’s too late.

Created by Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg and Dan Sterling, the series follows a group of local animal control workers whose lives are complicated by the fact that animals are simple, but humans are not.
