Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Tonight two new comedies premiere on FOX, back-to-back. The first, Dads, has garnered some of the worst reviews of the new season. The second, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has received some of the best. Dads is a  multi-cam. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a single cam. One has been criticized for ethnic stereotypes, the other praised for its diversity. Together, they are a true odd couple of scheduling. But, as Brooklyn Nine-Nine castmates Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher prove, sometimes odd pairings work. So how do you think each show will fare tonight?

Last season, FOX launched two comedies on Tuesday, September 25. At 8:30 PM Ben & Kate debuted to a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. At 9:30PM The Mindy Project premiered to a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating. Dads and Brooklyn Nine-Nina have the advantage of airing against minimal competition. Make your predictions then check back Tuesday morning to see if you were right.

    Mistake: 2, not 3. Slip of the fingers.

  • Dan S

    I voted 1.9-2.1 for Dads & hope it premieres lower. For B99 I voted 2.0-2.2 & hope it premieres higher. Here’s hoping that Dads quickly bombs & Raising Hope stays on Tues instead of moving to Fri.

    I’m really not so sure why people think Brooklyn Nine-Nine will premiere higher than Dads.

    Dads: 2.0
    Brooklyn Nine-Nine: 1.8

  • NBC Fan

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine-2.3
    New Girl-2.3
    The Mindy Project-1.7

    The Million Second Quiz-1.1
    America’s Got Talent-2.5

    Whose Line Is It Anyway?-0.8

  • Addrell

    Dads- 2.2
    Brooklyn Nine-Nine: 2.5
    New Girl: 2.4
    Mindy Project: 1.9

  • Liz

    ten minutes into the big premiere of Brooklyn 99 I switched channels and knew that I would never watch this crap.

  • ToXiX

    I predict Mindy Project will bomb

    Brooklyn Nine Nine was definitely better than Dads.

    I hope it doesn’t flop.

  • HV

    Dads 2.4
    Brooklyn Nine-Nine 2.2
    What? I’m predicting Dads higher? Yes. But I think that Dads will fall a lot faster/farther than Brooklyn Nine-Nine, so by week 4 Brooklyn Nine-Nine should be winning on a weekly basis.

  • Mike

    Dads: 2.0
    Brooklyn nine nine: 2.8
    New girl: 2.8
    Mindy project: 1.7

  • Christian

    Dads- 2.6
    B99- 2.8
    New Girl- 2.5
    Mindy- 2.1

  • CraveRecords

    @rob60990: B/c Dads looks like a really, really bad show.

  • Networkman

    Dads actually exceeded my expectations. I sometimes love comedies that are not PC. Married with Children is the perfect example of a comedy that was at times crude in nature but it was just entertaining to watch. The cast on Dads have great chemistry and so it has potential. I really like Giovanni Ribisi. I have to say that even though Dads is multi cam, I found it a great pairing with Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

    My predictions
    Dads 2.0
    Brooklyn Nine-Nine 2.3
    New Girl 2.8
    Mindy Project 2.6

  • Samuel

    Mindy got strangely bug buzz on social networks tonight because of James Franco. Maybe he can get good ratings for the premiere! But realistically, I’d guess a 2.0 for Mindy and a 2.5 for New Girl.
