Tonight sees two new show premieres, and they couldn't be more different. The Mindy Project premieres tonight on FOX after New Girl and has received a considerable amount of buzz as the "next" hot comedy. Vegas, on the other hand, hasn't enjoyed the same amount of pre-show notoriety but is the only scripted drama premiere of the night, and makes its debut after NCIS: Los Angeles.

So how will these two freshmen fare tonight? Take a guess and tell us about it in the comments!

    And perhaps this post proves that FOX’s Ben & Kate has absolutely no buzz at all. Although after watching both B&K and Mindy on demand, I actually thought B&K was better. But it’s only one episode, and I’m sure Mindy will do much better in the ratings.

    Mindy 2.9
    Vegas 2.6
    Ben & Kate 2.3

    “New Girl”: 6.0+++!!

    Haha… Kidding! I know it won’t be that high, but it’s one of my favorite shows. At most I think it will get a 3.2 at 9:00 PM. :p

    The 8 PM episode could easily get a 2.5+.

    “Ben amd Kate”: 2.2
    “Mindy Project”: 3.0

    Mindy 3.4
    Vegas 2.5
    Ben & Kate 2.6

    Nice TVbythenumbers, leaving out Ben & Kate. RUDE!

  • KarenM

    Vegas – 3.0 – I’m not watching though.

    The Mindy Project – What’s that?

  • Nick

    Dancing With the Stars: Results: 2.4
    Private Practice: 2.0

    NCIS: 4.7
    NCIS: Los Angeles: 4.4
    Vegas: 2.7

    New Girl: 2.2
    Ben & Kate: 2.1
    New Girl: 2.6
    The Mindy Project: 2.4

    The Voice: 4.0
    Go On: 3.2
    The New Normal: 2.0
    Parenthood: 1.7

    1. CBS: 3.9
    2. NBC: 2.8
    3. Fox: 2.3
    4. ABC: 2.3
    5. the CW: 0.2
    (I averaged the shows to the nearest tenth, so Fox is actually a little higher than ABC)

    CBS & NCIS will win the night by a landslide, even though Vegas will flop. B&K and TMP will do OK. Their futures will be decided later on in the season.

    @ Nick

    As usual you are making ridiculous predictions for CBS, NCIS will do high 3s and NCIS:LA is not going to be near 4.4


    I’m exited for VEGAS, looks like an amazing show. My Guess: Vegas-3.1 Mindy- 2.3.

    I think Vegas will do something around 2.7, but after last night my dear Hawaii I don’t know what to expect anymore. As for the Fox comedies, I have no clue with this one. Basically, I think it all comes down to what New Girl is able to do. And New Girl, between it’s crazy fall numbers, the huge fall in the spring, the sophomre bounce for sitcoms, the general lower numbers for the comedies yesterday and the absence of Glee on the same night, is nothing but a huge, gigantic question mark. I have no idea how it will end up, and I think the other comedies will depend on it, with Mindy doing better than Ben and Kate. At this point, I expect Go On to beat New Girl, which I never thought would be possible at the beggining of summer.

  • darius

    I don t see NCIS doing 4.7 despite the cliffhanger.A 4.6 in season 8 is its best 18-49 rating up to now.Hopefully it goes at least over 4.0

  • Mark

    New Girl – 3.3
    Ben and Kate – 2.6
    New Girl – 3.6
    The Mindy Project – 3.3

    DWTS – 2.7
    Private Practice – 2.3

    NCIS – 4.0
    NCIS: LA – 3.5
    Vegas – 3.0

    The Voice – 3.9
    Go On – 2.9
    The New Normal – 2.0
    Parenthood – 1.8

    I believe the difference between NCIS and The Voice will be much more than .1 If NCIS does not do significantly better than the Voice then CBS needs to go back to the smoky dark room and start all over again. You cannot go from the number one network year and year and suddenly get killed by the worst network. Something is seriously wrong and it is not NBC being good it is something going on with CBS.

  • KarenM

    NCIS will win the night even though they continue to flaunt the Tiva nonsense. Their writing’s also subpar.

  • Tessa

    I don’t know this Mindi woman. Is she popular in the comedy circles or well known in some other way? It seems unlikely that they would give an unknown comedian her own show in such an in-demand time slot unless she has some hefty credentials under her belt.

  • Samunto

    I couldn’t get through Ben & Kate. Stopped watching halfway through.

    Vegas will do around a 2.5 Mindy a 2.4.
    I expect Go On to win it’s slot.

  • Samunto

    Obviously your delusional with those numbers. Given how well The Voice did last week, i think some viewers who were used to watching Idol Tuesdays at 8pm liked the idea of a singing show there. Expect NCIS to get a thorough beating from The Voice. Low 3s

  • KarenM

    @Samunto, if CBS gets beat by NBC tonight also they’ll need to start retooling shows ASAP!

  • s0303

    2.3 for mindy project..don’t think new girl will get much higher than 3.0

    3.1 for vegas

  • s0303

    @ tessa…mindy kaling has been on the office since its premiere, just left this season for her own show…
