Both comedies had been yanked from the network’s schedule last month. The comedies join canceled dramas Alcatraz and The Finder at the network this season, while Fox has given series orders to comedies starring Mindy Kaling, Scott Foley and Nat Faxon.
The underperforming comedy, which hit a series low Tuesday, will take its planned hiatus sooner than expected.
The underperforming comedy I Hate My Teenage Daughter had been slated to shift from its Tuesday time slot to Wednesdays in April. Its last new original episode will air April 3 with the series returning in the summer.
Decent Bow For ‘I Hate My Teenage Daughter’
Fox’s new sitcom I Hate My Teenage Daughter got poor reviews but OK ratings for last night’s series premiere. Daughter averaged a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, airing at 9:30 p.m. behind a 90-minute edition of The X Factor. Daughter, about a pair of single moms raising two bratty teen girls, retained 76% of its lead-in from Factor, which averaged a 3.7, rebounding from last week’s series low when it aired on Tuesday and Wednesday instead of Wednesday and Thursday.
