Fox has released its fall premiere dates, staggering launches starting Sept. 11 and wrapping Nov. 8 with Enlisted.

The rollout includes a two-night bow for its rebooted The X Factor, which will launch Fox's fall season on Wednesday, Sept. 11 with its second part airing with a two-hour conclusion the following night.

Fox's approach comes as CBS will launch all of its fare a week later during Premiere Week, while NBC will also stagger its new and returning fare through Halloween. The CW, meanwhile, will again look to avoid the clutter and fierce competition and launch its 2013-14 season in October.

Here's a look at Fox's premiere schedule:
