The following week (February 4th), Brooklyn Nine-Nine will move to the 9:30pm timeslot following New Girl. Dads will continue to air at 8pm on Tuesdays until February 11th when it takes a break. 

Finally, starting February 25th, Glee moves to Tuesdays and will start the night off at 8pm followed by New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

I think things are fine the way they are... Why do they have to change everything?!

The only show on Fox I was interested in was Gang Related but looks like they have no plans to air that show.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.


Glee Club is officially over. Thank you guys. It’s been an honor.
