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!

    NCIS will get a 4.0 or above like it always does for premieres/big ticket episodes lately.

    Mindy: 2.7
    Vegas: 3.0

    NCIS: LA will probably be ~3.5 or lower, limiting Vegas’ potential. Expect huge numbers in the viewers for Vegas as nursing homes everywhere swap off DWTS and “that trashy medical show” for some old-time mem’ries.

    OK, maybe I was a little high, but not a lot.
    Changed Predictions:

    NCIS: 4.2
    NCIS: Los Angeles: 3.9

    It’ll still do great. NCIS is a powerhouse. There’s no chance it won’t get a 4.

    I really liked Mindy Project, it was far better than Ben&Kate, which I would call awful if not the heartwarming ending.

  • fran

    New Girl 3.3
    B&K 3.0
    New Girl 3.5
    Mindy Project 3.3

    Ncis 3.5
    Ncis LA 3.1
    Vegas 2.9

    Dancing results 2.2
    PP 2.0

    The voice 4.2
    Go on 3.2
    New normal 2.2
    Ph 1.9-2.0

    I think Vegas will get a 2.8 or maybe a 3. There’s little competition for it and it follows the NCIS duo that I think will still be strong. I hope New Girl does well on Fox. I’ve kind of grown to love it. I really want Private Practice to do well but fear for it.

  • Dan S

    I’m going with 2.7-3.2 for both Mindy & Vegas. I think Vegas will draw a bigger audience since its only real competition at 10pm comes from SOA on FX.

  • Alex

    My guess is that all three new shows debut in about the same range tonight – a mid to low 2. I don’t think New Girl is going to provide the lead-in that Fox want for their new comedies and I think the competition is probably tougher than they’d banked on from NBC.

    The more interesting question is probably going to be who wins the battle of the 9PM comedies Fox or NBC? In fact you can even throw CBS into that 9PM battle although you’d expect NCIS: LA to ultimately run away with it. That could be a pretty close run thing if Go On and New Normal hold up relatively well and given that both The Voice and Revolution managed to hold up at least OK against competition maybe we’ve all overestimated how much impact original opposition is going to have on the Tuesday line-up…

    I am however assuming that ABC ends up in fourth.

    We’ll see.

    Randomish, but here’s what I think CBS should do-

    Monday 10PM- CSI:Crime Scene Investigation
    Wednesday 10PM- Hawaii Five-O


    Wednesday 9PM- Dateline on NBC (Sunday on Wednesday)
    Wednesday 10PM- SVU
    Tuesday 10PM- Chicago Fire
    Thursday 10PM- Parenthood

  • capslocke

    Ben & Kate- 1.7
    The Mindy Project- 2.4
    Vegas- 3.4

  • Brian

    Mindy gets a 2.3 but I think will fade out before the end of the season. Vegas gets a 2.8 and proves to be somewhat compatible with NCIS:LA

  • Leondre

    Mindy Project-2.7. Vegas-3.0

  • senor chang

    NG(8): 2.7
    Ben and Kate: 2.4 (sad, I really like the show)
    NG: 3.0
    Mindy Project: 3.1

    Voice: 3.9
    Go On: 3.2
    New Normal: 2.0
    Parenthood: 1.8

    NCIS: 4.0
    NCIS: LA: 3.6
    Vegas: 2.8

    DWTS: 2.3
    Private Practice: 1.8

  • Hugh

    I’m more exited about Vegas than any CBS show ever. Chicklis is back!

    Mindy 3.4 Vegas 3.3

  • ABC hater

    Mindy – 2.0-2.6
    Vegas – < 1.9

  • Tessa


    Thanks for the info. I don’t watch The Office so I didn’t know her.

  • Dale

    Vegas was terrible. It’s on par with The Playboy Club and Pan-AM, those turkeys from last season. Revolution was also really bad. I don’t know why I even bother with new Network shows every year. Cable is where it’s at.

  • Anon

    I don’t know about this week, but for TMP next week I predict 1.5 or lower. I watched it tonight, and I want those 30 minutes of my life back.

  • Justin121

    Mindy will retain 100% of its lead-in, like Pan AM last year.

    New Girl – Ben & Kate – New Girl – Mindy

    2.1 – 1.9 – 2.8 – 2.8

    NCIS – NICS: LA – Vegas

    3.4 – 3.1 – 2.6 and CBS bad luck continues.

    Go On & New Normal = 2.9 & 1.9.


    Vegas was one of my top shows to watch going into the new season. After watching the pilot, I don’t hold much hope for it. The Plot was absolutely terrible. A murder that no one cared about, it felt like a total cop show with some cheap affects/props to make it look like its in 1960’s. That said ill give it a few more eps to see if it gets better. I wanted to like this show SO bad, but the terrible plot ruins anything good about pilot ( which I think are the actors )
