No, the BMA’s still don’t have a broadcaster. I presume they would move back to Fox and preempt 11/19. ALCS Game 7 could preempt 10/22 if it’s on Fox and not FS1, although I expected at least 4 episodes until 10/29.Have the Billboard Music Awards announced who is going to air them on 11/19 yet?
There's also a "wild card" in the works; if the Baseball ALCS (which I am guessing Fox/FS1 is airing, as they usually alternate the NLCS and ALCS with TBS) goes to Game 7, that should be on 10/22, and the last time this happened, Fox did pre-empt the announced Sunday schedule for it.
As for airing repeats in early December, usually Fox does have a "repeat night" in early December (it used to be the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend). However, it's possible that Fox may want to air all of the episodes in production before the break for postseason football.
Since there’s only 12 episodes, 10 could air this fall (10/1 - 10/22, 11/5 - 11/12, then 11/26 - 12/17), with the other 2 in January despite NFL playoffs: 1/7 at 9:00 and (I know about NBC but still) 1/14 or 1/21. If the strike ends in the next couple of months and production continues, more episodes could air for February or March (long 2 month hiatus though). Or maybe 11 episodes this fall and 1 in January
