Well, get ready for more schedule juggling due to the playoffs. Fox is pulling its hit sitcom, "New Girl," to accommodate the Major League Baseball postseason. Tuesday's schedule that included "Glee," "New Girl" and "Raising Hope" already has been pulled for Game 3 of the American League Championship series between the Texas Rangers and Detroit Tigers.
Talk about a momentum killer for its scripted TV series. Fox has extended episodes of "The X Factor" from 90 minutes to 2 hours this Wednesday and Thursday. Next week "The X Factor" will air on Tuesday night, because the World Series will air Wednesday and Thursday.
The week of Oct. 24 Fox has Wednesday and Thursday nights set up for a possible sixth and seventh game of the World Series. "The X Factor" will air 7 p.m.-9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25. If the World Series doesn't go to six or seven games, Fox will air reruns of its series.
I guess the bright side of that news is that we know we won't miss new episodes either way. Call me when baseball season ends.
