Fox Shrinks 'Dads' By Three Episodes


Things don't look so good for Fox's least successful freshman show. The Hollywood Reporter learned that the network cut back its order for Seth MacFarlane's live-action comedy, "Dads."

In October, Fox picked the up the comedy for a back-nine, bringing "Dads" up to a full 22-episode season. But now, the network will trim that order to just six episodes, and the season will run at 19 episodes.

This news comes just after the network announced "The Mindy Project" would go on an extended hiatus due to a crowded midseason schedule.

As of now, controversial comedy -- remember that racist pilot? -- "Dads" will air new episodes through Feb. 11. After that, "Glee" will take over the show's Tuesday time slot.

The Seth Green-fronted show's future looks pretty bleak. Do you think Fox should keep "Dads"?
