Fox announced today that American Idol will return with a special two-night, four-hour debut on Jan. 13 and 14. But that was hardly the end of the good news from the network, which also divulged the debut date of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse and the night when 24 will return! Whedon’s drama that stars Eliza Dushku will launch Feb. 13, and 24 will make a comeback over two nights on Jan. 11 and 12. Here are other important dates from Fox’s midseason lineup to remember: the new drama Lie to Me (which stars Tim Roth as an expert who can tell whether people are fibbing) will bow on Jan. 21; Hell’s Kitchen resurfaces on Jan. 29; House shifts to Mondays starting Jan. 19; Bones moves to Thursdays on Jan. 15; and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will jump to Fridays on Feb. 13. And finally, the reality show Hole in the Wall, which is based on the Japanese Tetris series, will bow on Sundays beginning Jan. 18
