Even before tonight’s Fox comedy pickups were announced there was plenty of speculation about Fox having a night with four half hour comedies. You won’t have to speculate long since Fox will announce its schedule Monday.
Some folks think it’s a done deal that Fox will move Glee and go with four comedies on Tuesday. But even a Glee that is beaten down below a 3.0 adults 18-49 rating is a better lead-in than a new comedy block that pulls below a 2.0 rating. As bad as last season’s X Factor ratings were compared to expectations, they weren’t that bad — and much better than an hour comedy block that draws less than a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. No moves would shock me, but I’d be a more surprised if they went with a two-hour comedy block out of the gate than leaving Tuesday night as Glee + 2 comedies and an hour comedy block behind The X Factor.
