Full Seasons For ‘The Mindy Project’ and ‘Ben And Kate’
Fox has announced today that they will be ordering Full Seasons of the hit comedy sit-coms ‘The Mindy Project’ and ‘Ben And Kate’. The two shows have proven with the episodes aired thus far that they are worthy of Fox’s mantel of comedy series they allow. It is no wonder why the shows have made the cut and really have pushed the envelope on many issues.
Chairman to the Fox Network has said according to EOnline that, “Smart writing, hugely appealing casts and comedy that feels contemporary and real, which is why we’re confident they will continue to build on what is already an appointment-comedy night for young, influential audiences.” In other words, the shows are going to be around for a while. No one is shocked at the swift full season pick-ups for the two comedies and fans are happy to be able to see more.
The ratings for Ben and Kate opened to 2.1 adults and getting a total of 4.7 million viewers. That is pretty good for Fox Comedies. The Mindy Project was a little bit more popular with the adults as it showed that 2.4 million adults with a total of 4.7 million. This is the first of the Fox series this year to receive the full season pick up and it is good to know that former ‘Office’ star Mindy Kaling is getting noticed for her comedic genius.
It seems that this Fall, the shows have stepped it up. With other networks greenlighting full seasons for their shows, it has been a good Fall so far. With many shows returning to the winter schedule, it is going to be fun to see if the shows will survive the full season and be able to get signed for another season. That is the plan for every show and here’s hoping that they succeed.
‘Ben And Kate’ and ‘The Mindy Project’ air on Tuesdays on FOX!
