Things are going pretty well for Mindy Kaling's comedy The Mindy Project, with decent ratings and a full-season order to secure the comedy will be around, at least through a full first season. But it looks like we're going to see a few noticeable shifts among the casting in the show coming up, and a couple more guest appearances by Kaling's former Office co-stars.
There's good news for one new series and kind-of-good news for for two others. Mindy Kaling's new Fox comedy The Mindy Project has been given an order for additional episodes, which are tacked onto the previously announced full season order. Meanwhile, the official word on the fates of Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue isn't in yet, but ABC has given orders for additional scripts for both dramas.
A few days ago, baseball's rain-out and subsequent rescheduling wreaked havoc on Fox’s schedule last week, and new episodes of The X Factor needed to be rescheduled. Now, Fox has officially tweaked and announced next week’s schedule, and The X Factor fans are not going to be the happiest of campers.
It's at this point in the fall, when most of the new series have premiered, that we're forced to look at our overflowing DVRs and figure out which shows to keep and which ones to let go. And then, of course, there are the shows we haven't gotten around to checking out yet. For those of you trying to play catch-up and need a little help deciding which new series are worth a look, we've come up with a list of the keepers this season.
Fox’s freshman comedies Ben and Kate and The Mindy Project have been greenlighted for full season orders. The network announced the news Monday, noting that six episodes have been added to Ben and Kate’s initial order and a whopping nine episodes have been added to The Mindy Project’s schedule to keep the programs on air through the spring.
If there's a silver lining to Mindy Kaling's departure from The Office, it's that she left the NBC comedy to create and star in her own comedy series at Fox. The Mindy Project puts Kaling front and center as a thirty-something trying to juggle her hectic professional life as an OB/GYN with her fairly disastrous love life. The Project takes some of the more amusing aspects of Kelly Kapoor and puts them into a lead character with a bit more substance and direction.
We're still weeks away from that point during the fall schedule when all of the new shows are beginning to premiere and it comes time to start picking the ones that will hold a place on our primetime TV-viewing schedule. Fortunately, some of the networks have been offering early samples of their programming, and that's the case for Fox's new comedies The Mindy Project and Ben and Kate.

Fox previewed freshman drama New Girl to bring attention and hopeful a few eyeballs to the freshman sitcom last year. Taking a cue from that show’s success, the network will preview Ben and Kate, the new comedyfollowing adult siblings as they raise the precocious little girl from We Bought A Zoo. The highly touted The Mindy Project, which will star Kaling, as well as will be written and directed by the actress, has also earned a preview episode.
Joining Fox's Tuesday night comedy block this fall is The Mindy Project, a series that puts The Office star Mindy Kaling front and center in a half-hour show that looks like it'll pair nicely with returning comedy New Girl. The new poster for series features the star and creator surrounded by words that suggest she's on a mission of self improvement.
Fox has posted its Fall TV premiere schedule, which includes the addition of their new drama series The Mob Doctor and a couple of new comedy series to the line-up, not to mention the return of The X Factor for Season 2, and the standard Animation Domination Sunday night block.
