For the full press release and schedule, including a couple of shuffling dates when certain shows return, hit the jump.
Earlier today, Fox announced the lineup for their fall 2012 schedule. Glee will now air on Thursday nights, and the network has created an all-comedy block on Tuesday nights with New Girl, Raising Hope, and two new comedy series. The network has now unveiled full trailers for said comedy series (and one that debuts midseason), so we now have a better idea of what to expect from the network’s new offerings. Despite having a terrible title, The Mindy Project actually looks really promising. Kaling, who also created the series, stars as a young physician who’s trying to break some bad habits in her personal life. Kaling is likeable and funny as the lead, and she’s buoyed by a strong supporting cast that includes Chris Messina (Damages) and Richard Schiff (The West Wing). The Bill Hader and Ed Helms cameos don’t hurt either. I like what I’ve seen, and it looks like The Mindy Project should make for a fine companion to New Girl on Tuesday nights.
Hit the jump to watch the trailers for all the new Fox comedies, including two other promising additions: Midseason series The Goodwin Games from How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and the sibling comedy Ben and Kate.
