Weeks after Fox announced that the next two episodes of the Zooey Deschanel comedy New Girl would be broadcast at special times, the network is pushing the half-hour series back until November.

When New Girl was picked up for a full season last month, the network noted that the show would be broadcast on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 9:30 p.m. and Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 9:30 p.m. But because Fox decided to expand The X Factor from 90 minutes to two hours, new episodes of New Girl will begin in its usual Tuesday 9 p.m. slot starting Nov. 1.

Additionally, the season finale of Terra Nova has been scheduled for Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. and will be a two-hour episode, like the series opener.
