EXCLUSIVE: I’ve learned that midseason Fox comedy series Us & Them is taking an early break. The romantic comedy, which is six episodes into its 13-episode order, was scheduled to film two more episodes before a built-in hiatus. Instead, a decision was just made to move up the hiatus starting today. The weeklong break is expected to be used for working on scripts as I hear Fox brass have had concerns about the tone of the series. For now, the plan is to resume production in a week though Fox executives will likely wait to see how the Tuesday comedy block performs next week before making a final decision. It’s been a rough start for the network’s comedies, with none able to break a two 18-49 rating this week, and freshmen Dads and Brooklyn Nine-Nine and sophomore The Mindy Project at a 1.5 or below in Live+Same Day. In addition to Us & Them, Fox has new comedy Surviving Jack on tap for midseason and just gave a series order to Mulaney.
