    I could easily see Fox keeping Raising Hope on Tues paired with Enlisted in Jan. Move B99 to 9:30pm & send Dads & TMP to Fridays instead.

  • CrimTV

    I’m not justifying The Mindy Project’s rating, nor do I like it, but it is the highest rating since the series premiere, which does show how dismal the ratings were last season!

  • Kissan

    Dads was horrible last night, I didn’t laugh not once. Brooklyn 9-9 was funny and I have to say it did pretty good. But these two shows will plummet next week against the most highly anticapated show on TV which is SHIELD, the number one reality show The Voice and the number 1 most watched scripted show on TV NCIS. New Girl skews really young I don’t know how it does it but almost a 3.0 with only five and a half million viewers is really young skewing. LOL to TMP and I hope it gets cancelled this year. AGT is really skewing old this season.

    I think Brooklyn Nine Nine is safe. If I remember correctly, FOX is airing New Girl and another comedy after the Super Bowl, and I think Brooklyn Nine Nine has major potential to be that show. Unless Surviving Jack (Chris Meloni) goes there.

    I like The Mindy Project, one of my favorite comedies, but I can’t see it staying at 9:30 much longer, maybe it will swap with Brooklyn Nine Nine?

  • CBSviewer

    Awesome numbers for the NCIS Franchise :)

    I am very surprised that everyone is saying Dads launched very well. I mean, sure, expectations were terrible, but it had almost no competition and it will face MAJOR powerhouses in weeks to come. I think it will crash and burn as we all antecipated, I am confused why everyone is so excited about it. B99 did well though, that I agree, but it will have an uphill battle in coming weeks, especially with its lead-in collapsing.

    New Girl did better than I thought, I am happy for it, and America’s Got Talent is actually some sort of competition, even though far from what the voice will be next week. The Golderbs won’t probably hurt it though. I won’t even comment on mindy, it is pathetic that it was renewed last year and it will show this season – I doubt Raising Hope couldn’t do better there

  • Russell

    Fox comedies next week:

    Dads – 1.3
    Brooklyn Nine-Nine – 1.7
    New Girl – 2.0
    Mindy Project – 1.1

  • Kate

    Yeah first repeat since mid spring where ‘NCIS’ got over 10 million viewers, we’ll see if it will retain it’s #1 status, when ‘The Shield’ airs opposite it and after the Walking Ninja Barbie Mossad Action Figure, leaves the show after episode 2, younger viewers watched the series because of Cote, they won’t tune in for the middle aged fossils that appear onscreen, McGee will be 40 so in RL. And I give ‘The One’ who was just casted as Cote’s replacement 3 episodes before the lynch mob crazies on FB and Twitter flip out.

  • Ram510

    Fox just needs to go ahead and switch Mindy and B99. Mindy isn’t going to grow, it’s a lost cause and should be the final season

  • Michael

    DADs: 1.9

  • Mr T

    Wow, did DADS suck balls!

  • CBSviewer

    @ Michael

    I think you’re too pessimistic about CBS Shows.

  • CBSviewer

    @ Michael

    * Only about NCIS, sorry !

    NCIS: 3.8
    NCIS: Los Angeles: 3.1
    Person of Interest: 2.8

  • Dan

    Surprised at the upward adjustment for Dads & Brooklyn Nine-Nine but nonetheless both will get destroyed next week by SHIELD, NCIS, and The Voice. SHIELD will likely open big, and NCIS and Voice will do well around 3.5-4.0 as usual.

    However like they always do, FOX will give Brooklyn Nine Nine a full 22 episode season and likely air all episodes of Dads after they burn it off.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    The new FOX comedies were a bit higher than I predicted, but I had the rating spread between them about right.

  • forg

    Good start for Brooklyn 99, Dads is vulnerable. Mindy is up from spring episodes but it could easily go down towards the season.

    I wish Fox premiered Us & Them early

  • Michael

    They really need to swap B99 and Mindy. Mindy would counter program against shows people want to watch, while B99 can hold the NG audience.

  • NBC Fan

    The fox comedies did well but I think we should wait until next week before calling them hits.

  • KevinSW

    Honestly, I don’t see The Mindy project going much lower, lowest probably 1.7, i think it’s got a core audience that won’t leave it easily.

    On the other hand, i didn’t like Dads nor Brooklyn Nine Nine, dunno not my kind of comedy and honestly, i see them both kind of falling apart by Season’s end.
