'Sleepy Hollow' gets expanded finale, while 'The Following' moves

"Sleepy Hollow," has been such a hit for Fox this fall that it's getting an expanded first-season finale on Jan. 20.

Previously, the network had announced a two-night second-season premiere for "The Following," with episodes airing on Jan. 19 and Jan. 20. Now, a special preview of the season will air on Jan. 19 after the NFC Championship game, with the actual premiere airing on Jan. 27.

"Sleepy Hollow" premiered in September to 10 million viewers, making it Fox's biggest fall drama premiere since "24" in 2001. Since then, it has consistently turned in solid ratings and gotten a big boost from DVR playback.

The series, which stars Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane transported to modern-day Sleepy Hollow, has been a swirling pot of Biblical creatures, witches and revisionist Revolutionary War history.

As Executive Producer Mark Goffman told the Los Angeles Times earlier this month, "I guess the line here is we are constantly teetering on the verge of 'That's just too crazy.' We really try to find that and, amazingly, I don't think we've crossed it yet, but we certainly will push for it."

Fox has already ordered a second season of "Sleepy Hollow."
