First, Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly sang the praises of The Following in announcing a second season for the Kevin Bacon thriller:

“From the very beginning, we felt Kevin Williamson and Marcos Siega had created a high-quality, edge-of-your-seat drama that could break from the pack, and it is exciting to see the audience responding. Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy have given us two of the most compelling characters on television and the entire cast is incredible. I’m delighted to have this thrill ride continue on FOX for another season.”

Next, Reilly also picked up a trio of sitcoms - New Girl, The Mindy Project and Raising Hope - saying of these three hits:

“We love working with these talented producers and casts who, week after week, create some of the funniest work on television. These shows are creatively vibrant, they have established a loyal and passionate audience and they will continue to define and grow the FOX comedy brand next season and beyond."

All four series will air new episodes this week.

New Girl & The Mindy Project did NOT air new episodes tonight because stupid American Idol was on instead. Boo. The Mindy Project (& possibly New Girl as well) supposedly won't be back until March 19, because AI will be on NEXT week as well. -_- God, American Idol hasn't had any breakout stars/singers since Adam Lambert. And how many years ago was THAT?

Glee better get renewed! It isn't as good as it was, but there is plenty to be said for all its fans!

I don't get it. I just don't GET .. IT!
I can list a bunch of shows that ARE funny. "Go On", "Anger Management", the old "Friends", "Don't trust the Bitch in ..." and others.
I have watched 4 episodes of "The Mindy Project" and I have to say I did not laugh one time.
After four episodes, if I don't get even a chuckle out of it then it's clear that I don't understand the humor or else it's too infantile for me.
Seinfeld, Big Bang Theory, 3rd Rock from the Sun, 30 Rock
Stop! I could list 1,000 shows, since the late 50's that I thought were funny.
For me I don't get how FOX could renew The Mindy Project.

I'm curious as to how The Following will continue on - storyline wise, of course.
