“Glee” will share Friday prime time with a new unscripted hourlong comedy project, working title “World’s Funniest Fails,” which is based on the YouTube channel FailArmy.
Fox also said it is officially reducing the number of “American Idol” episodes. The competition program, which was the highest-rated program on broadcast prime during its heyday from 2003-2011, has struggled with dwindling ratings in recent seasons.
“The veteran singing competition will start off its fourteenth season with its usual twice-a-week airing pattern before dropping the Thursday edition starting March 26,” the story reports.
Two new live-action comedies will air in midseason. They are “The Last Man on Earth,” which stars Will Forte and will debut March 1 behind Sunday’s “Family Guy,” and “Weird Loners,” which will air Tuesdays after “New Girl,” and will debut March 31.
“Idol” will help debut the new drama “Backstrom,” which will air on Thursdays after the reality series starting Jan. 22.
