FOX to Gives 'Happy Hour,' 'Justice' Early Exits
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- As part of a flurry of last-minute scheduling changes, FOX has placed its freshman comedy "Happy Hour" on hiatus until after its October baseball coverage. New episodes then are expected to resume on Thursday, November 2 at 8:30/7:30c.

Repeats of "'Til Death" will instead fill in for the show's previously announced broadcasts before the baseball break - Thursday, September 28 at 8:30/7:30c ("The Ring and I," a new episode of "Happy") and Sunday, October 1 at 7:30/6:30c (a repeat of "Happy's" pilot).

Also getting an early exit: fellow newbie "Justice." The show's October 4 airing has been bumped in favor of a repeat of "House" that night at 9:00/8:00c. Said development makes its September 27 broadcast its last new installment before its baseball-induced hiatus. To soften the blow however FOX has added a repeat of "Justice's" pilot on Friday, September 29 at 8:00/7:00c, trimming the previously-planned two-hour season finale of "Celebrity Duets" to just one hour in the process.

The news comes as both series hit ratings lows against its "premiere week" competition. So far this season (based on fast national numbers), "Happy" is down 34.78% in households and 32% in adults 18-49 from its premiere while "Justice" is off 37.29% in households and 36.67% in adults 18-49 from its bow.
