Say it ain’t so.

It’s going to be a long, cold, mash-up-free winter without our weekly dose of glorious Glee. After the December 9 sectionals face-off, the freshman series will go off until spring, returning on a new night April 13.

After the fall finale and a long break, Glee will bring spring fun on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. It will make for a formidable primetime pairing of two super-huge TV draws for LGBT viewers with Glee’s placement after ratings phenomenon American Idol. AI also introduces the most famous lesbian in America, Ellen DeGeneres, as the singing competition’s fourth judge in its new season.

Also announced in the hiatus shake-up, the recently canceled Dollhouse, much to the dismay of lesbian fans of powerful leading lady Eliza Dushku, will air its remaining episodes Friday nights at 9, ending with the series finale on January 22.

Though Fox’s strategy to leave us panting for more Glee worked wonders following the pilot’s premiere way back in May before the full fall run, will rampant Gleekers be able to hold on till April for a fresh fix?

 

They’ll have a "Last Christmas" cover, the first two volumes of Glee’s soundtrack, as well as the first 13 episodes, Glee Season 1: Road to Sectionals on DVD available December 29 to get through the break.

TELL US: What do you think of all the switches? Is Fox fanning Glee’s flames or playing with fire and fickle fans? Who is your favorite character?
