Fox has handed out early renewals for next season to comedies Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl and The Mindy Project and drama The Following.
The shows that aired after Sunday’s Super Bowl saw no bump for their next original episodes. In fact, both New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine were down last night from their most recent Tuesday outings. Girl posted a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating at 9 p.m., off 16 percent from its previous Tuesday original, which posted a 1.9 on Jan. 21. Brooklyn, moving into its new 9:30 p.m. timeslot for the first time, posted a 1.4, sliding from a 1.9 two weeks ago when it aired at 8:30 and down from the 1.5 that The Mindy Project posted in the slot on Jan. 21.

Fox has given renewals to midseason drama The Following and Tuesday comedies New Girl, Raising Hope and The Mindy Project. They join recently renewed veteran Bones, with negotiations for a fifth season of Glee ongoing.
On the heels of freshman The Mindy Project getting a pickup for two more episodes, bringing its first season order to 24 episodes, Fox has done the same with its two returning live-action comedies, New Girl and Raising Hope.
The network has picked up its Tuesday night comedy lineup for next year.
In the latest DVR rankings, for the week of Nov. 28-Dec. 5, the freshman comedy not only posted the largest gain in total viewers, 3.1 million, but it also had the largest ratings increase in the 18-to-49-year-old demographic considered important to advertisers.
New Girl suffered a baseball hangover last night. The hit new show’s first episode in four weeks, after being preempted by Major League Baseball playoffs, was well off from its most recent outing, though it still won its timeslot. Girl averaged a series-low 3.5 adults 18-49 rating at 9 p.m., down 19% from its previous episode on Oct. 4, which averaged a 4.3.
Given the amount of ratings success Fox has enjoyed with entertainment programs this fall (it’s the only broadcaster to have improved in the adult demo), and considering this year’s World Series Rangers vs. Cardinals match-up, it does raise the question: Is disruptive fall baseball coverage still worth it for Fox?
Three weeks into the new season, Fox is officially the network to beat on Tuesdays. The network won its third straight Tuesday last night, with new comedy New Girl once again finishing as the night’s top program. Girl averaged a 4.3 adults 18-49 rating at 9 p.m., down just a tick from last week’s 4.4.
The half-hour Zooey Deschanel comedy is the first series of the new season to get an additional order.

It averaged a 3.4 rating/9 share in that category, according to Nielsen, up 31% over last year and its highest-rated premiere week in 11 years. Fox was the only network to see gains over last year. CBS, which finished No. 2 with a 3.1/8, was down 6% from last year, when it won premiere week.
Fox’s new comedy New Girl retained 92% of its audience in week two when it was broadcast on Tuesday. It averaged a 4.4 adults 18-49 rating at 9 p.m., down from a 4.8 for last week’s premiere.The show scored higher than its lead-in, Glee, which averaged a 3.6 rating, off from a 4.0 last week. A few shows on broadcast increased their results over last week among 18-49s, including NBC’s Parenthood (up 5% to a 2.2) and the CW’s 90210 (up 14% to a 0.8).
