Both New Girl and Raising Hope have gotten orders for two additional episodes, bringing both veteran comedies up to 24 episodes according to Deadline. No announcement has been made about freshman comedy Ben & Kate, which is currently lagging behind with only 19 episodes

    I don’t know why they don’t simply give Ben and Kate a back 9 order. I hope they don’t actually think about premiering The Goodwin Games after Raising Hope. That would be the same as killing the show.

    The wise call would be to let the four comedies there for the rest of the season and premiere The Goodwin Games on Wednesdays at 9:30. Since Glee will probably take 5 or 6 weeks off like it always does, then FOX could simply air 2-hour Idol’s on Thursdays in the meantime (they could spare one week to premiere Touch and that’s it). Ben and Kate is as good as dead, so letting it die with three more episodes makes no difference and they could make all kinds of arrangements for the three other weeks where Raising Hope would air without Ben and Kate (maybe airing two episodes of Mindy and one of Goodwin Games, for example).
