DadsThe freshman season of Fox comedy Dads will consist of 19 episodes, three fewer than full-season 22. The network gave the live-action sitcom a back order in October, but the exact number was fuzzy. It now has been set at 6. The reduced pickup is understandable given the fact that Dads will air its last original episodes February 4 and 11 before getting off to make room for Glee. The series’ long-term prospects remain undetermined but not bright.
