Fox Won’t Air ‘The Goodwin Games’ Until Late Spring of Maybe Even Summer


The Fox network still has one new sitcom that hasn’t debuted this season, The Goodwin Games, and according to Fox chairman Kevin Reilly, it won’t be placed on the schedule anytime soon. Created by How I Met Your Mother’s Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, and Chris Harris, Goodwin Games follows three siblings (played by T.J. Miller, Becki Newton, and Scott Foley) fulfilling their father’s last wishes in order to inherit his $20 million fortune. Speaking to reporters at the Television Critics Association tour yesterday, Fox chairman Kevin Reilly said this of the fate of the show:

“I’m creatively very happy with what’s happening in [our Tuesday comedy] block. But we haven’t been able to deliver the ratings. I’m not sure [Goodwin Games] is going to improve our lot, ratings-wise. So, we’ve got to hold off on it. To further upset that block is only going to exacerbate our problems. We are going to maintain consistency.”
