Fox Slashes Episode Order for The Goodwin Games
Fox has reduced the order of its midseason comedy The Goodwin Games from 13 episodes to seven, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
A lack of room on Fox's Tuesday comedy block is the reason for the change, according to a network rep. Fox recently ordered 24 episodes of Raising Hope, New Girl and The Mindy Project, along with 19 episodes of Ben and Kate. The seven Goodwin Games episodes will air sometime in the spring.
The single-camera comedy, from How I Met Your Mother executive producers Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Chris Harris, stars Becki Newton, Scott Foley and TJ Miller as estranged siblings who reconnect when they stand to inherit a fortune after their father's death.
