Fox Renews THE FOLLOWING, NEW GIRL, MINDY PROJECT and RAISING HOPE

Fox’s announcement that they will be stacking their midseason next year with a slate of renewals is of little surprise: The Following, which stars Kevin Bacon, as well as Zooey Deschanel‘s New Girl are two of the network’s top rated series.  While some worried about the fates of The Mindy Project and Raising Hope, both have been performing well enough with viewers and critics to warrant an unsurprising return next year.

So far, the only Fox series in question is the Ryan Murphy-helmed musical series Glee, which is sure to be renewed after contract negotiations.  For fans of Touch (are there any?  Speak now!) the signs are pretty clear that it won’t be returning after this season.  For more on the renewed series, hit the jump.

Tuesday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • Smash’s future looks pretty dim.  Following the abysmal ratings for its season premiere two weeks ago, last night’s episode dropped a whopping 25% for a series-low 0.9 rating and 3.29 million viewers versus the season two premiere’s 1.2 rating.  The NBC drama’s days are likely numbered.
  • Also down was Fox’s New Girl, which scored a 2.2 rating and 4.36 million viewers for yet another creatively swell episode.  That’s a drop of 15% from its last original episode’s 2.6 rating.
  • NBC’s new comedy Go On—which has been one of the better performing new programs of the season—has been having some trouble gaining its momentum back following the December break.  Last night’s episode garnered a 1.1 rating and 3.32 million viewers, which is down 15% from its last new episode’s 1.3 rating.
  • The series premiere of The CW’s Cult was met with a muted response, as the episode netted a 0.3 rating and 940,000 viewers.  For comparison’s sake, that’s down from the now-cancelled Emily Owens, M.D.’s 0.4 rating for its series finale a few weeks ago.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Tuesday, February 19th, including NCIS, The Mindy Project, The New Normal, and more.

Tuesday’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • Apparently even hate-watchers get tired of watching Smash, as the second season premiere of NBC’s musical drama series absolutely flatlined with a series low 1.1 rating and 4.47 million viewers.  That’s a 71% drop from the series premiere 3.8 rating and a 39% drop from last season’s finale rating of 1.8.  A creative change behind the scenes took place to try to course-correct the show, but apparently fans just weren’t interested in coming back.
  • Hot off last week’s much buzzed-about episode, another excellent installment of New Girl dipped a bit, hitting a 2.5 rating and 4.81 million viewers.  That’s down 4% from last week’s 2.6 rating.
  • On the other hand, Fox’s The Mindy Project saw a rise of 12% from last week’s 1.7 rating with a 1.9 rating and 3.6 million viewers.
