With a total of 17 shows premiering in 2012 across all networks, so there’s gotta be at least a couple long-term gems hidden in the stack. I’m still running through “Breaking Bad” on Netflix and I got “Boardwalk Empire” next on tap, so I’m always in search of a new classic to help waste even more precious time and pack on some extra weight.

With NBC’s big party going down on Friday, the Fox network held their winter party for prospective advertisers last night at the The Green Castle in Los Angeles. Here are the new shows that Fox will be pimping to the masses (via Hollywood Reporter):

Finder, Fox

Premieres: Thursday, Jan. 12, 8:00 p.m. ET

A loose spin-off of veteran procedural Bones, creator Hart Hanson takes a more whimsical approach to crime-solving with this series about an eccentric war vet who can find anything. Starring Geoff Stults as sleuthing Walter Sherman, Michael Clarke Duncan joins as his right-hand man and legal representation.

Napoleon Dynamite, Fox

Premieres: Sunday, Jan. 15, 8:30 p.m. ET

Nearly 7 years after the indie comedy about an awkward youth with unparalleled fighting skills hit theaters, Napoleon Dynamite is now a cartoon series. Original stars Jon Heder, Tina Majorino, Aaron Ruell and Sandy Martin among those lending their voices to their old roles, now forever preserved in high school.

Alcatraz, Fox

Premieres: Monday, Jan. 16, 8:00 p.m. ET

Lost gurus J.J. Abrams and Elizabeth Sarnoff hope for success on another island with this supernatural mystery about Alcatraz prisoners returning modern day San Francisco after disappearing when the notorious prison closed. Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia and Sam Neill headline the ensemble trying to figure out (or cover up) what’s really happening.

Touch, Fox

Premieres: Monday, March 10, 9:00 p.m. ET (Preview episode Jan. 25)

Kiefer Sutherland stars as a single father whose mute, 11-year-old son communicates through numbers. Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Undercovers) and Danny Glover co-star in the drama from Heroes creator Tim Kring. As Glover explained to Sutherland in a preview: “Your son sees everything in the past, the present, the future. He sees how it’s all connected.”

It is Zooey.

How can you run a celeb blog and completely butcher her name? lol

That takes talent.

Omg, what happened with Tamara Taylor? She's so pretty in 'Bones'. Here she's scary skinny and that haircut is awful.

She looks horrible.

She'll make you go Gugu and asked do you want it raw?

Idk, but she is at the top of the pyramid compared to these other women.
