'Glee,' 'So You Think You Can Dance' start earlier

Matthewmorrison_glee_290 FOX has decided to get its heavily hyped series "Glee" a little farther out in front of the fall-premiere crush.

The network released a revised premiere schedule Tuesday morning (July 28) that features both "Glee" and the fall season of "So You Think You Can Dance" moving up a week. Both shows will debut Wednesday, Sept. 9, rather than the previously announced Sept. 16.

The change will give "Glee" and "SYTYCD" two weeks to establish themselves against lighter competition. The CW is premiering "America's Next Top Model" on Sept. 9, but ABC, CBS and NBC won't roll out their Wednesday lineups until Sept. 23.

The first two episodes of "Glee" will also get Friday airings on Sept. 11 and 18, which in turn changes the premiere dates for comedies "Brothers" and "'Til Death."

"Brothers" will get an hour-long premiere on Friday, Sept. 25, leading into the new season of "Dollhouse." "'Til Death" joins the schedule on Oct. 2.
