We have good news. And we have better news. First, Mike O’Malley (Burt) — aka Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) dad, aka probably one of the coolest father, no, humans, in the entire world — has a new TV show that premieres later this week!

So what’s the better news? Even though Mike has a full-time new gig, Kurt’s dad is not being written off Glee. What’s more, onscreen son Chris Colfer is so excited his co-star’s new show, he’s telling the world about it on Twitter.

Mike promptly responded:

But it’s Chris’ joking response that really gets us:

Okay, you two. Will you stop being so darn adorable? Or actually, on second thought, don’t. We’re loving every moment of this.

Welcome to the Family premieres at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 3, which means it will be over just in time for you to switch the channel for Glee. How convenient is that? Thanks, TV scheduling overlords!
