Fox has made the decision to keep the current season of American Idol at its full 2-hour format past April 4, which is when it was set to revert its run time to 90 minutes. This directly affects new comedy I Hate My Teenage Daughter, which was scheduled to air in the 9:30pm time slot following the hit reality singing competition.

This latest scheduling change is more bad news for I Hate My Teenage Daughter, which has had a hard time finding its place in the Fox line up since debuting late last year. It has only managed to air six of its scheduled 13 first-season episodes so far, and should only be able to squeeze in three more before being bumped to the summer schedule to burn off its remaining episodes.

As for the future of the show, things are not looking good. Its ratings have been mediocre and Fox has not found a way to give it a consistent place in its schedule.

Fox has now pulled the show from its schedule effective immediately. For the next two weeks, repeats of Raising Hope will air in its time slot until Glee returns with new episodes.
