The "Party" is over for the ever-busy Jane Lynch.
Lynch will be a regular on FOX's new series "Glee" in the fall, and as a consequence she's had to part ways with the Starz comedy "Party Down." Starz was hoping that "Glee's" schedule would let Lynch moonlight a little, but that didn't pan out.
Lynch missed the last couple episodes of "Party Down's" first season while filming the pilot for "Glee." Jennifer Coolidge guest-starred in her place, but there's no word yet on whether she could become a more permanent replacement for Lynch.
The second season of "Party Down," about a group of wannabe and never-really-were actors working as cater-waiters in Los Angeles, is likely to premiere next spring.
