With more and more broadcast series ending their seasons earlier and earlier, Fox is delaying the season finales of four series this year. The network today amended the list of season finale dates it issued two weeks ago with new dates for New Girl, The Mindy Project, Kitchen Nightmares and Touch. Comedies New Girl and Mindy Project, originally slated to wrap their seasons May 7, will now air their finales May 14. Kitchen Nightmares and Touch will finish their seasons May 10. In Fox’s previous plan, Kitchen Nightmares was to end its original run April 6, followed by Touch‘s closer April 26. The reason for the tweaks is that Fox brass decided to have more originals on in May. The rest of the network’s season-finale dates remain unchanged. Here is the full list of Fox’s season finales/summer premieres:
