'Dads,' Seth MacFarlane's Live Action Awfulness, Is Going 'On Hiatus'

A few weeks ago, Fox seemed determined to keep the lowest-rated of its new shows on the air, picking it up for a full season. Now it's replacing it with Glee.

Yes, that low-rated font of racist jokes that is Seth MacFarlane's Dads will most likely be gone from our television screens forever after February 11.

Fox announced the schedule changes today, which were also bad news for The Mindy Project. That's being taken off the schedule, too, although it will be returning April 1 for a "spring premiere" before moving to a new timeslot after New Girl. There's no return date for Dads.

If you're concerned about Mindy's future (which you probably should be; it's never a great sign when a show is removed from a schedule, even temporarily), E! would like you to know "our Fox sources tell us not to worry about Mindy taking a break, because the network 'loves it and believes in it.'" And New York Magazine's Joe Adalian tweeted that the winter hiatus could be good for the show, as it would mean "fewer reruns and it won't air opposite the Winter Olympics."

Then again, it hit a new series low in the ratings on last Tuesday's episode.
