Fox Thursday Fall TV Preview: The X Factor, Glee
Aug 29 2013 07:54 am CET
Fox's Thursday stays the same, with The X Factor results show and the fifth season of Glee. However, the musical dramedy will begin the year on a somber note.
The X Factor (Season Three)
The front half of the fall season will feature one-hour audition episodes for The X Factor. Once the live shows begin, Thursdays will feature the one-hour results show. I recommend reading yesterday's post for more details about season three. The first Thursday episode will air September 12.
Glee (Season 5)
Glee will be the elephant in the room for Fox this season. Back in May, Fox announced it had renewed the show for two more seasons—a bold move considering the show went off the rails during its last multi-year renewal. Many are speculating that this renewal will be the last for the show—six seasons is a pretty good run.
Then Cory Monteith died of a drug overdose. This happened right before the current season went into production. The show's website and the trailer above make no mention of the incident, though there will be a tribute to Monteith's character Finn in the third episode of the season. The show delayed its premiere by a week, making the tribute the last episode before the World Series hiatus. It will be interesting to see what the fan response will be.
Glee will debut on September 26.
