E! News has learned that Fox is shifting Glee back to Tuesday nights at 8 pm, starting Feb. 25. Greg Kinnear’s new dramedy series Rake will be taking the plum Thursday night slot, airing after American Idol. Rake premieres Jan 23.
Starting Tuesday, Feb. 25, Glee will air at 8/7c, followed by New Girl at 9/8c and Brooklyn Nine-Nine at 9:30/8:30c. The Mindy Project airs its winter finale on Tuesday, Jan. 8 and will return to its Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30 slot when Brooklyn finishes off its run. Dads will continue on Tuesday nights at 8/7c until Tuesday, Feb. 11, and may return at a later date.
Deadline reports “The Mindy Project” will take a month-long production hiatus around the holidays, which the writers will use to regroup and plot the show’s April re-launch, which could be decisive to the comedy’s future, considering Tuesday’s (Nov. 19) episode hit a new series low in the 18-49 demo.
