Glee On A LONG Hiatus!

| Filed under: TV NewsGlee

gleeeee__opt11__opt1bye.jpg

Is Fox is making a giant mistake??

Even though the entire country is in love with Glee, the hit show will be taking a mid-season break with the last episode running on December 9th and not returning to prime-time until April 13th, 2010!!!

All to make room for American Idol!

Is it smart for the network to put the show on hiatus at the peak of it's popularity????

How do U feel about the break?

    ahhh! american idol or glee? AMERICAN IDOL OR GLEE?! I can't decide!



  2. 102

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO GLEE FOR THAT LONG IS A CRIME! FOX PLEASE REBUTE THIS AND SAY PEREZ IS WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!



  3. 103

    Who cares about AI?!! Time to give it a rest!
    Getting sick of all the shows being stopped for that crap and so called "artists"!



  4. 104

    FOX is stoooooooooooooooooopid. American Idol SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Glee is awesome.



  5. 105

    The break is due to their shooting schedule. They don't start filming again until January. So there's really nothing that can be done. If you want the show to stay good (or mediocre in this case) they need time to make it so. Same thing with Lost. It's a difficult show to write and film so they need the long breaks. Maybe this hiatus is a good opportunity to pick up a book?



  6. 106

    break time? well $hit….this is one of my favs….and for american idol?! wtf…i thought popularity of ai was going down?



  7. 107

    FML NO.



  8. 108

    thats so stupid!!!!!!!!!!!! fuck american idol!



  9. 109

    Yes Fox, please remove your fresh, new, amazing show that everyone i know loves for tired out american idol. Its like survivor. I stopped watching after so many seasons. Its tired out and old - put it in the summer



  10. 110

    HORRIBLE IDEA :( I love American Idol, but come on!!! There is room for both!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This makes me sad! Fox is stupid, they're lucky to have hits like AI and Glee.



  11. 111

    I tried to watch Glee once but I shut it off after 15 minutes. It seemed so stupid and pointless– even worse than The Hills.



  12. 112

    WHAT?!?!?!!?!

    113

    WHAT?!?! Screw american idol!! Im so tired of that show. Glee is SO MUCH BETTER
    KEEP GLEE!!!
    I can't go that long without it! I'll just stop caring!



  14. 114

    I AM FURIOUS!!!!!!!!!!! WHY IN THE HELL WOULD THEY DO THIS? STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!



  15. 115

    are you serious. i may cry..that cannot happen..i cant wait that long?



  16. 116

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  17. 117

    this is a bad decision! glee is an awesome tv show!!



  18. 118

    i think they're keep finding ways to give themselves more time to write cus they're writing themselves into a hole by making a show based off of stereotypes. So if it's going to make it better and have more substance then HOLLAgoFOXY



  19. 119

    NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want my GLEE, DAMMIT!
    *Didja ever think though that maybe those FOX-y programmers are just spreading this rumor to get people to protest and garner publicity????? Could they really be so stupid as to remove a budding HIT to make way for a current hit that's fading gradually? IMHO who knows what will happen without Paula and now with Kara DioBoringo and Ellen…. My guess lots of snooze time. Oh well!



  20. 120

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  21. 121

    not a good idea.. a completely stupid idea. Switch nights or figure out a schedule with american idol on the same night. bad bad BAD idea to hold it off until April.



  22. 122

    NOOOOOOOOOO that is a horrible idea!

  23. tasha says – reply to this


    123

    I tried watching it a couple of times and thought it sucked so I could care less.



  24. 124

    What losers actually watch AI anymore? It died after the first few seasons, there is nothing new or fresh about the show aside from Ellen judging now, and that's not even enough for me to want to watch. Glee is original and after such a long hiatus, I highly doubt I'll be interested enough to jump back into the storylines. This. Is. A. Horrendous. Move.



  25. 125

    no waaayyyyyy



  26. 126

    big mistake!



  27. 127

    THAT IS A TERRIBLE IDEA!!!!!
    glee is my favorite show right now, and with the break….i will begin to forget about it like i have with all of the shows in the past. they arent as appealing once you have had that much time to realize that there are better shows



  28. 128

    I spend all day at work waiting to go home and watch glee on Wednesday lol.



  29. 129

    always leave them wanting more. I think long running seasons kill most shows. It is anticipation that builds audiences. That's what go the show such popularity. Plus they are releasing the mid season DVD for XMAS - so people will run to buy it.

    FOX WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?!? SO FREAKING DUMB I DON'T WANNA SEE STUPID A.I.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. k-lee says – reply to this


    131

    Oh, that sucks. Ditch American Idol instead. Nobody watches that shit anymore.



  32. 132

    who gives a crap about AI that show sucks. I rather watch glee.



  33. 133

    I have never watched American Idol and don't like the show. I have watched every episode of Glee. Yuck.



  34. 134

    ugh sooo sad



  35. 135

    Everyone needs to NOT watch A.I. this year, then they'll get the message and just cancel the whole damn thing anyway. I'm very sad for Glee! Also, have to wait until March for "V" and February until Lost. SUCKS!



  36. 136

    I LOVE GLEE, and I HATE AMERICAN IDOL… when will that series ever end???????????????????????????? keep glee on, and can AI……



  37. 137

    It's only 5 months…..

  38. ap076 says – reply to this


    138

    ABC is doing the same thing with V and in both cases it is a major mistake. Fox could find a hole in the schedule for this #1 show with the 18-34 demo (a demo you will soon be out of, oldster) and teens.
    As usual you print half truths about celebs and shows, movies, and albums you personally like or are trying to push. Glee is the number 3 out of 5 shows for the night/timeslot.
    Two shows I love, Criminal Minds and Modern Family beat out Glee in overall ratings (Criminal Minds is double Glee's total viewers with 14 million vs 7 million) and the all important advertising demo 18-49. When you think of Glee think of 3(rd) !!!



  39. 139

    If Glee were such a MASSIVE hit as you make out Perez, then Fox would accommodate it. Its obviously not that important that they will give it a decent time slot around Idol commitments.



  40. 140

    this is rubbish! a 5 month or so break will lose the audience - i'm in australia and i love watching glee, it's so fresh and fun. but this is ridikulous, only something an american network would do.



  41. 141

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  42. 142

    So what if AI is on. Wednesdays are the result show and thats an hour(59 mins to long) and Glee could still be on at 9. Dumb move Fox.



  43. 143

    you filthy sob's… that was literrally likee the best show ever, and you skanks can just suck a huge one if you think that you are going to take this show off the air and tghere was no guy on guy action btw… fuck ya'll



  44. 144

    Boooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  45. 145

    Love Glee, despise American Idol. Watched the first season, I'm over it.



  46. 146

    arehiuahgiuehgiuH'hku;;JHhkjH; NOOO



  47. 147

    this is stupid this show gets good reviews and great ratings and were bumping it to ake room for another dragged out American Idol? I love Ellen but I think we should have a good natured show rather than live kareoke.



  48. 148

    That is a stupid mistake. I hate it when you get into a show and they put it on a break. Change the night of Idol



  49. 149

    American Idol sucks! These kids sing better than the contestants on AI!



  50. 150

    speaking just from my own personal experience.
    I feel that over the last couple of years the interest in American Idol is gone down. I think that it would be a mistake for Fox to keep Glee off for that long just to make room for American Idol.



  51. 151

    I LOVE GLEE!!! DONT DO THIS!!!



  52. 152

    NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will cry!!! Why are they doing this to me?



  53. 153

    Nooooooooooooooooooooo, why, I Love Glee, im done with AI



  54. 154

    this is awful!!!!! glee is one of the most watched show! why would you stop it for something most people don't even watch!!!! WTF FOX?! ARE YOU CRAZY?!?!?!?!?



  55. 155

    They will lose viewers. GUARANTEED. Big mistake in my opinion. Look what happened to Lost…



  56. 156

    As Mercedes would say: Hell to the NO!

    BAD move! I could care less about American Idol, its sooooo old. GLEE is new and fresh and at number 1! Jeez, at least put it on a different night! Us Gleeks are NOT pleased with this!



  57. 157

    are they stupid?



  58. 158

    This is ludicrous!! I've hated American Idol for the past few seasons. It's so tired and overdone. Adam Lambert is the perfect example that the people who don't even win go on to have great success!! So why even bother having it? I LOVE GLEE AND I'M GOING TO MISS IT!



  59. 159

    I say we complain until they get it back on sooner Booooo I havent watched American Idol since season 3. I like Glee I prefer scripted and talented to semi talented camera whores. Who most of them don't even make it. UGH



  60. 160

    KEEP Glee on. CANCEL American Idol. it's overrated.



  61. 161

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WHAT THE FUCK FOX



  62. 162

    This is the stupidest thing Fox could do.

  63. Wytch says – reply to this


    163

    I don't like this idea. i love that show.



  64. 164

    So over American Idol…time to wrap it up



  65. 165

    I call bullshit! LOVE Glee, never have watched AI.



  66. 166

    seriously! American Idol is WAY overdone.. now that FOX has something decent on, they have to go and ruin it with a shitty reality tv show. not impressed at all. Move GLEE to a better cable network



  67. 167

    I'm actually very pissed!! That show is so refreshing and the music is great every week.



  68. 168

    MUCH rather have glee then american idol! i mean seriously how many seasons have they had now? its incredibly boring to watch now and im sick of it! i want GLEE!



  69. 169

    stupid! i mean i have to agree with the guy below that said is was creepy that the teacher sings more that the students but… come on. really? there's about to get fans to HATE them. not a good move on there part. Plus! all this for american idol?! really?! that's sooooooooo old school! people are all OVER that shit! Glee is soo cool and entertaining and real(-makeup, wardrobe and voiceovers)! I love Glee and I'm very disappointed. but what can you expect? its fox.

    Re: ap076Re: gleeisamazing – Read my previous post cited on the left for the truth about Glee's ratings and American Idol (for better or worse) is the most watched show in America when it is on.



  71. 171

    this probably isn't gonna last dat long… ppl r in luv with glee and they're not gonna stand aside and watch american idol take over glee's spot on wednesdays



  72. 172

    Huge mistake!!!!



  73. 173

    This is absolutely BULLSHIT!!!!!
    My sis just got me into watching it and I have now caught up with all the episodes and I can't for tonights episode.
    I have noooooooo idea what I am going to do with myself after Dec. 9. I would rather see glee on t.v then stupid american idol. Everyone HATES american. For example, if there was no american idol then there would b no controversy with Adam Lambert and his kissing scene at the AMA's.
    I am pissed off and now I am going to have noooooooo more shows to watch anymore. UGHHHHHHHHHHHH:@ …… sometimes I just don't get ppl.



  74. 174

    So dumb! I love this show and AI is getting old….ugh



  75. 175

    NOOOOOO:( WE NEED A PETITION, NOW! I CAN'T LIVE THAT LONG WITHOUT NEW GLEE!!!!!!!!



  76. 176

    noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    i love glee!!!



  77. 177

    HUGE MISTAKE!!! No one gives a flying f**k about American Idol anymore!! It's tacky, bad television!



  78. 178

    noooooooooooooo!!!



  79. 179

    THIS IS STUUUPIDDDD.
    i love glee. this is ridiculous.



  80. 180

    I am very BUMMED!!!!! i say Glee needs to stay on, even if its re-runs on a different night



  81. 181

    Are you kidding? it's a brilliant idea, marketing-wise. Give people who want to watch a chance to catch up. More people get into it. Build up a long wait and really build it up. They'll make sure we know when it's coming back and then, guaranteed, the night it starts up again, the viewer hits will be HUGE. They know their audience, and their audience will wait it out. Almost guaranteed.



  82. 182

    ahhh that is SO infuriating! I am absolutely in LOVE with Glee. It's fresh, funny, and touching. They cover beautiful topics and do it in interesting ways. Eff American Idol. Don't get me wrong, i Looooove Ellen, but I'll stick to watching her own show. I think it's stupid to put it on hiatus.
    It's bad enoug that we have to wait FOREVER for True Blood to come back!



  83. 183

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOW COULD THEY!!!!! :'( I want Glee!!!



  84. 184

    I'd much rather have Glee over American Idol…



  85. 185

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO~!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I WANT MY GLEE!!!

    LOVE,
    GLEEK



  86. 186

    I think Fox is stupid for such a long hiatus! April? That's 3 months of no Glee! I know Idol is their money maker, but 3 months is wayyy too long.



  87. 187

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ):

  88. Funzo says – reply to this


    188

    TOTALLY stupid idea. to replace Glee with that bullshitty waste of time is just…upsetting. I wish Glee could go to another network.



  89. 189

    BAD IDEA! That's waaaay too long of a wait. I don't give a rats ass about Lost or AI I want Glee!!!!!



  90. 190

    Hasn't anyone learned from the Sopranos. Long Hiatus = kiss of death



  91. 191

    WTF
    why would they do that? who ares about american idol? its old. glee is new, and its amazing.
    i hope this doesnt hurt glee because it cant get cancelled! it has to stay around for a long time please.
    be careful Fox



  92. 192

    Not cool, nobody cares about AI anymore. GLEE ALL THE WAY!

  93. MP says – reply to this


    193

    I love Glee, but am growing tired of American Idol. I'm disappointed there's such a long break.



  94. 194

    eww…american idol sux monley ass…



  95. 195

    i meant "monkey" not "monley"



  96. 196

    Re: aimeretpaix – i meant "monkey" not "monley"



  97. 197

    i haven't watched american idol since the first season, so the moment that Glee is on hiatus Fox loses me til April



  98. 198

    That's freaking ridiculous. I absolutely despise American Idol, but I love Glee. Glee is like a breath of fresh air on the network, and American Idol is just the same crap season after season. Paula isn't judging anymore, and maybe it'll be better with Ellen, but by switching judges AND nixing Glee in favor of AI, I think Fox is making a HUGE mistake.



  99. 199

    i love glee! and i have never watched one episode of american idol.



  100. 200

    Who gives a shit about American Idol? I stopped caring when they started making fun of people……Glee doesn't do that. MORE GLEE LESS AI MORE GLEE LESS AI MORE GLEE LESS AI MORE GLEE LESS AI MORE GLEE LESS AI
