Fox renews The Following, New Girl, Raising Hope and The Mindy Project

http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-wat...esday-comedies

New Girl and The Following were expected. The other two display that shows don't have to get huge ratings to get renewed anymore.

Yay, New Girl. A favorite in our house! Jury is still out on the Following for me.

Have not seen the others.

Raising Hope got renewed because it's close enough to syndication numbers by now that it makes sense for the studio to give FOX a discount. The Mindy Project is kind of surprising, since it hasn't received very high ratings, and hasn't retained too much of New Girl's audience, but I guess FOX realizes that even getting a 1.7 rating these days is pretty good and isn't guaranteed from something new they might bring in. Plus, being in business with a minority, female showrunner is always good when people start to throw around accusations of the TV industry just being about the good, ol' white boys.

Raising Hope is consistently funny. They never have a bad episode. Glad to see it will be back. I gave up on New Girl this season but I may catch up at some point.

I am so backed up on The Mindy Project but I try to watch new girl whenever I see it on my recorder.

I'm glad about the New Girl & Mindy Project renewals. New Girl is funnier, but both are entertaining.

Great news for Raising Hope. New Girl was expected. Both are very funny and good shows.

Wow! 'The Following' is the only one on the list that I watch and I felt pretty certain that it would be a 'one and done' deal. I wonder how far they can take this premise.

I tried Mindy Project when it first started and didn't even get through an episode.

The Following is the only show on the list I watch and I've actually only watched the first episode. Show is building up on my DVR.

not really. But the character is great. Lots of fun to watch. And well played by the actor.

+1 for Raising Hope, occasionally watch new Girl.

Have not watched a single episode of the other two. If I hear a new show is good I will play catch up. I do not usually watch from the beginning.

Raising Hope is getting renewed but Greg Garcia is leaving.

The non-Mindy characters make Mindy Project worth watching.

Only thing with raiding hope is Greg Garcia is turning the show over to one of his assistants as he starts a new show.

That is not necessarily a bad thing but hope's tone and consistently is certainly heavily influenced by Garcia.

I love new girl, and am waiting on following to do a marathon.

Gave mindy about a 15 minute chance. May at some point try again but probably not.

Perhaps one factor helping mindy is the feeling they needed to have a female comedy voice in an era where females have become much more powerful in terms of creating shows. I don't know if fox has any other female based comedies.

New Girl is created and run by a woman, and Jess is still the central character, although it's turned into more of an ensemble.

Yeah that is good. In my head I was thinking more creator / star mode Ala Fey, Poehler , Dunham etc but still fits the bill.

Haven't watched new girl yet, but I do have all the episodes waiting for me. Only seen some of the Mindy Project, but have those in the queue too.

Plenty to watch over the summer.
