From TV Line, looks like FOX is getting in the renewal mood a little early this year. Three comedies were just renewed and one drama:
- New Girl
- Brooklyn Nine-Nine
- The Mindy Project
- The Following
I’m always happy for renewed shows because people are keeping their jobs. I’m even more excited when it means my favorites are coming!!!
The one that has me the most excited on this list is Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I have loved this show from the minute it aired. Funny, well written, perfectly cast…this show was tight right out of the gate…which is a challenge for new ensemble comedies. I was worried because the ratings weren’t good and it was looking bad for cancellation. Then the Hollywood Foreign Press did me a solid and gave B99 the Golden Globe for Best Comedy. And they were right on. Since then, people have checked out the show and if you haven’t, what is wrong with you? Do you not like sharp, witty TV shows? Well, I’ll give you a second chance and HIGHLY encourage you to check it out over the summer so you can be ready for the fall.
Of course New Girl and The Following make me happy since those are on my must view list. I don’t watch The Mindy Project and this renewal surprises me a lot because the ratings are bad and people who I have talked to who have seen the show say it’s pretty bad. I watched the pilot and 2nd episode and it didn’t do anything for me so it was bumped. But for those that do, congrats that your crappy show is still on the air! I say crappy with all due respect of course.
So great news right?? Are you happy about these shows? Surprised? Pissed Enlisted isn’t on here? Worried for Almost Human? May is a long way away for bubble shows.
