Breaking In, I Hate My Teenage Daughter Return; Glee on Hiatus

Breaking In season twoGlee is going on yet another hiatus, this time to make way for the returns of Breaking In and I Hate My Teenage Daughter.

FOX has announced that the “winter finale” of Glee will air on February 21st. A special edition of American Idol, the blockbuster show’s 400th episode, will follow on February 28th.

Then, on March 6th, FOX will start running a two hour comedy block — Raising Hope moves to 8pm; I Hate My Teenage Daughter returns at 8:30pm; New Girl stays at 9pm; and season two of Breaking In kicks off at 9:30pm.

New episodes of Glee will resume on April 10th. It’s unclear yet what will become of the remaining four episodes of Daughter or the eight episodes of Breaking In. The network will likely decide once they see how the shows perform in March.

Here’s the press release:


Glee Winter Finale Airs Tuesday, February 21; All-New Episodes Return Tuesday, April 10

This spring, FOX continues the Tuesday laughs with an all-new block of four half-hour comedies including Raising Hope, I Hate My Teenage Daughter, New Girl and the Season Two debut of BREAKING IN.

Beginning Tuesday, March 6, the all-new night of laughs kicks off with the time period premiere of Raising Hope (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), followed by the spring return of the family comedy I Hate My Teenage Daughter (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT). From 9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT, the Golden Globe-nominated hit series New Girl continues to amuse with brand-new episodes, followed by the Season Two premiere of BREAKING IN (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), featuring new cast member Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”) shaking up the Contra Security team.

Expect a whole bunch of surprises this season on BREAKING IN, when Emmy Award winner Megan Mullally joins the cast as a series regular. When Contra Security is bought out by a stuffy, multi-billion dollar global corporation, how will this group of high-IQ oddballs, led by mastermind Oz (Christian Slater), react to their new owners and new boss, Veronica Mann (Mullally)?

This spring, on I Hate My Teenage Daughter, Annie (Jaime Pressly) and Nikki (Katie Finneran) face a whole new set of child-rearing challenges when Sophie (Kristi Lauren) and Mackenzie (Aisha Dee) try out for their high school’s cheerleading squad, want to attend an unsupervised senior party and go on an overnight ski trip.

Next week on Tuesday, Feb. 7, don’t miss all-new episodes of Glee, New Girl and Raising Hope. On Glee (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Will (Matthew Morrison) gives the Glee club a Spanish singing assignment, and enlists the help of his musically-inclined night school teacher (guest star Ricky Martin). Then, on New Girl (9:00-9:31 PM ET/PT), Jess (Zooey Deschanel) makes it her mission to get the loft’s cantankerous landlord (guest star Jeff Kober, “Sons Of Anarchy”) to like her, and inadvertently jeopardizes her and her roommates’ living situation. Finally, Burt (Garret Dillahunt) gets buried in finances during corporate tax season, and Virginia (Martha Plimpton) seeks a new business venture as a tarot card reader on Raising Hope (9:31-10:00 PM ET/PT).

What do you think? Are you looking forward to the return on Breaking In or I Hate My Teenage Daughter? Do you think either will survive to see another season?

    I am glad “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” is coming back. I thought it was hysterical. I even got my husband to watch it and he thought it was hysterical also.

    I’m excited that Breaking In is coming back. It didn’t deserve to be cancelled in the first place; I’m glad the network finally saw the light!

    It is great to see the Breaking In is coming back. I hope it does well with the New Girl lead in, so that we can get more episodes. As for Glee going on hiatus, that is just a nice bonus.

    Although I do love Glee, the theme shows are getting a bit annoying for my taste. I loved Breaking In, so I hope it is as good as it used to be, and not a total Harry’s Law change to it. I also really enjoy I Hate My Teenage Daughter, and have been waiting for it to return. I was a bit afraid when they only aired a couple of episodes then went on hiatus, that it would be canceled. New Girl and of course Raising Hope should both keep showing episodes for years to come without question. I like knowing that I will have an entire night to laugh. Life sucks bad enough that laughing is what alone can get a person through it many times. So glad to hear Fox has figured that out.
