If you were hoping your favorite FOX shows could last just a little bit longer before ending their seasons, then you're in luck. FOX has announced new finale dates for four of its shows: New Girl, The Mindy Project, Kitchen Nightmares and Touch. According to Deadline, the reason for this is because the network wanted more new episodes airing during May sweeps.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

New Girl and The Mindy Project, originally scheduled for May 7, will now end their current seasons a week later on Tuesday, May 14, at 9pm and 9:30pm, respectively. Because of this move, the So You Think You Can Dance premiere is being cut down to one hour.
