Fox will keep its comedy Tuesday lineup intact

Fox has picked up both The Mindy Project and Brooklyn Nine-Nine for next season. The two shows and New Girl will likely continue to comprise Fox’s Tuesday comedy block.

Though Brooklyn Nine-Nine has seen ratings lows in recent weeks, its surprise Golden Globes win, along with star Andy Samberg’s Golden Globe for best actor, cemented its place in next year’s lineup. The Mindy Project‘s fate was more in question with an average of only 3.8 million viewers per week (compared to Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s 5.2 million).

The returning shows will be joined by a handful of new comedies Fox has already signed to series including SNL-writer John Mulaney’s comedy Mulaney and a Seth MacFarlane animated comedy called Bordertown. (Seth MacFarlene’s ill-conceived Dads has thankfully been dropped by Fox.) The network has also given a series commitment to a show by 30 Rock‘s Tina Fey, Matt Hubbard and Robert Carlock.
