    So will Feb 11th be the finale?

    It never should have gotten more episodes in the first place.

    That sucks, We bust out laughing at each episode.

  • swc316

    So 11 episodes have aired so far…new episodes: 1/7, 1/14, 1/21, 1/28, 2/4 and two on 2/11. That’s only 18 so I guess they will be doubling up with an extra episode along the way?

  • John A

    Not that long ago it got 22. It has been lucky to last this long.

  • Oliver

    It was clear that Fox had cancelled Dads as soon as they announced they were pulling it from the schedule.

    yeah,never should’ve gotten a 2nd let alone a 19th episode.

  • Christian

    So is it defacto canceled? ;)

    The writing is on the wall — and the ceiling, and the floor, and the door, and all of the windows…

    Anyway Glee won’t do any better on Tuesday at 8 !

  • Candy Clouds

    I wish CBS would do the same thing for HIMYM. I don’t think I can take 11 more episodes of the Wedding Weekend.

    Even though I don’t mind Dads i don’t really care if its renewed or cancelled.
    Brooklyn Nine Nine is a far better show.
    But the joke will be on fox when Glee does worse than Dads & The Mindy Project.

    Good. If it wasn’t for the nepotism seth macfarlane gets from fox, Raising Hope wouldn’t have been banished to and burned off on Friday to get to 88 episodes. It would have gotten an honest chance to earn its renewal on Tuesday at 8pm. Which I have no doubt that it would have done better than Dads.

    If you’re a Raising Hope fan blame seth macfarlane for what happened

  • Alan

    Not shocking!

  • sofaspud

    “First” season? Was that a joke? There ain’t gonna be a second one, folks.

  • DW

    is it because Seth green is pregnant?. :)

  • david

    If they are burning the show off and finishing it in Febrary then it will not get a second season. Im not surprised by this decission.


    FOX has to know that Glee won’t do any better than Dads… Dads shoulda just remained on the schedule for whole season on Tuesday, I doubt anything else will do better.

  • DenverDean

    FOX should move Glee to Friday at 8/7 and keep it there for the remainder of this season and the ill-conceived 6th season renewal. At least people will find it. Move RH to Tuesday where it did well. FOX is just being dumb.
