FOX Moves ‘Glee’ to Tuesdays, Hiatus for ‘Dads’ and ‘The Mindy Project’

FOX Midseason 2014 Glee Dads Mindy Project
FOX

Though we still have a month or so of programming left, FOX has already begun making some major changes in its midseason lineup that may bode ill for previously safe offerings. ‘Glee‘ in particular will move out of its Thursday slot back to Tuesdays, while oft-maligned Seth MacFarlane comedy ‘Dads‘ will undergo a hiatus in 2014, alongside new episodes of ‘The Mindy Project.’

Changes for ‘Glee’ will take effect after the forthcoming December 5 Christmas finale, moving to Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. on February 25. The same Tuesday will see the picked-up, but struggling ‘Dads’ going on a temporary hiatus, while the critically adored, but underperforming ‘Mindy Project’ will break from January 28 to April 1. ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘ will follow ‘New Girl’ for the time being, taking over for ‘Mindy.’

Elsewhere, FOX has altered its plans to premiere Greg Kinnear lawyer dramedy ‘Rake‘ behind the big NFC Championship Game on January 19, that slot instead going to ‘The Following’ season 2. ‘Rake’ will instead premiere on January 23, following the premiere of ‘American Idol.’

You can check out the full FOX midseason schedule below, but what say you? Was ‘Glee’ a failure on Thursday nights? Have fans of ‘Dads’ or ‘The Mindy Project’ anything to fear?
