Dads and The Mindy Project both stumbled badly out of the gate, and both are likely to be canceled by the end of the season. While [TV By The Numbers] doesn't predict the timing of any moves, it's worth noting that second season shows are typically allowed to air their entire season of ordered episodes, regardless of their eventual fate at the end of the season.
This season will be American Dad's final season on Fox (it will continue on TBS), and Glee has already been renewed for the 2014-15 season. ...
TV BTN lists Dads as "more likely to be cancelled than renewed by May, 2014."
So maybe this will give executive producer more time to focus on Family Guy and American Dad. Or maybe he'll be making more live-action movies soon.
