Fox Picks Up The Mindy Project For Full Season – Plus: Good News For Ben and Kate

Fox is going all the way with The Mindy Projectpicking up the freshman comedy for a full 22-episode season.

Additionally, the network has ordered six additional episodes of fellow rookie Ben and Kate, bringing that sitcom’s Season 1 haul to 19.

Both shows have been modest ratings performers, but Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly said in a statement that they possess “everything we want to stand for in comedy: 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 on Tuesdays.”
