'Glee' Switches Canadian Networks
The musical dramedy finds a new home north of the border.
TORONTO – Glee has a new home for Canadian viewers.
Rogers Media has acquired the rights to the Ryan Murphy series for its City network as part of a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Incendo Television Distribution.
Glee formerly aired on rival Global Television.
City will air the remainder of the fifth season in simulcast with Fox on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m., starting on Feb. 25.
The Canadian network also will air New Girl at 9 p.m. and Brooklyn Nine-Nine at 9:30 p.m. after both series were moved back an hour due to the Glee move from Thursday to Tuesday nights.
City also airs the Fox sitcoms Dads and The Mindy Project. The Mindy Project will go on hiatus in the U.S. from Feb. 4 until April 1. There's still no word on when (or if) future episodes of Dads will air on Fox following the low-rated series' final original episode on Feb. 11.
City will air the sixth and final season of Glee in fall 2014.
