FOX's Midseason Shakeup: “Glee,” “Mindy Project” Benched
Following ABC’s lead, FOX is changing up their schedule for midseason, making room for some new series by benching some of their aging hits.
According to TVLine, the biggest changes are coming to Tuesday nights, with “The Mindy Project” going on hiatus after its winter finale on January 28, before returning on April 1.
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will slide into its 9:30 slot the following week, with “Glee” returning with its first episodes since December on Tuesday, February 25 at 8pm.
“New Girl” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will also air in a cluster after the Super Bowl on February 2.
The schedule shifting could be bad news for Seth MacFarlane’s “Dads,” which is getting rushed off the schedule on February 11.
Kevin Bacon’s “The Following” will now have a two-night premiere starting Sunday, January 19 following the NFC Championship, then making its time slot premiere the next day.
As previously reported, the Greg Kinnear-starring “Rake” will debut on Thursday, January 23 at 9pm, while the military-themed comedy “Enlisted” will air after “Raising Hope” on Fridays at 9:30 starting January 10.
