Fox Midseason Shuffle: ‘Dads’ Shelved, ‘Glee’ Returns to Tuesday

Fox Midseason Shuffle: ‘Dads’ Shelved, ‘Glee’ Returns to Tuesday

“The Following” gets boosted to the coveted post-NFC Championship Game spot, “Rake” will follow “Idol”

“Dads” is being shelved early, “Glee” is returning to Tuesdays and “The Following” is being handed the coveted post-NFC Championship Game spot as part of the midseason changes for Fox, which the network announced Thursday.

“Dads,” which has not really found ratings success in its first season, is being put away after Feb. 11 — shy of its full-season order. The network has yet to decide whether or not the show will return later.

“The Following” will return for its 14-week second season on Sunday Jan. 19, kicking off after what will likely be a highly-rated game. The spot was originally promised to new legal drama “Rake” starring Greg Kinnear.

The next evening, the two-night “Following” premiere will continue in its regular time period, following the season finale of “Sleepy Hollow” in a special slot. ”Rake” will instead debut on Thursday, Jan. 23, after a new “American Idol.”

Changes to the Tuesday night slate begin after “The Mindy Project” airs its winter finale on Jan. 28. The next week, Feb. 4, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” moves to its new time period at 9:30 p.m., following “New Girl” at 9.

“Glee” will make its return to Tuesday nights on Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. with “New Girl” at 9 p.m. and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” following at 9:30 p.m.

“The Mindy Project” will return after its hiatus on April 1 (at 9), with a special one-hour event featuring new back-to-back episodes. The series returns to its regular time period (9:30) the following week.
