Fox Rearranges October Schedule: Leaving New Girl Out in the Cold

new girl‘Suppress the Jess’ was a phrase we heard on last week’s episode of New Girl and it seems that Fox is doing exactly that. Fox has shuffled their October schedule and bumped all new New Girl episodes until next month.

As first reported on The Futon Critic the next new episode will air on Tuesday, November 1 instead of this Wednesday as originally scheduled. This original change of day for New Girl was as a result of the MLB playoffs/World Series and now the extended episodes of The X-Factor have led to this further schedule change. It is the judges round on The X-Factor which has increased the running time from an hour and a half to two hours (apparently these extra minutes are important). Glee and Raising Hope which are both Tuesday shows will also return with new episodes on November 1.

New Girl has already been picked up for a full season but will this early break have an impact on ratings? The ratings have been impressive for this freshman show and it has managed to win its first 3 nights in Adults 18-49; a first for a new sitcom on any network in 20 years (figures from TV by the Numbers). It is thanks to this success then that Fox feels comfortable in holding back new episodes until November which also means that they won’t have to air it on a different night as was originally intended.

If you want to get your Zooey Deschanel fix before November 1 then you are in luck, as Deschanel’s musical project She & Him have released a track from their forthcoming album ‘˜A Very She & Him Christmas’. The track can be heard at their official website where you can also pre-order the album that will be released October 24.

What are your thoughts on this schedule change? Glad to be getting extra X-Factor? Annoyed to have to wait for New Girl? Let us know in the comments below.
