Good news for fans of Ben and Kate and The Mindy Project! Fox has picked up both series for more episodes! Nine more episodes of The Mindy Project were ordered, and an additional six episodes of Ben and Kate were ordered. This brings both series to full-season orders. The news was announced yesterday by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
“BEN AND KATE and THE MINDY PROJECT have everything we want to stand for in comedy: smart writing, hugely appealing casts and comedy that feels contemporary and real – which is why we’re confident they will continue to build on what is already an appointment comedy night for young, influential audiences on Tuesdays,” said Reilly.
In tonight’s all-new episode of Ben and Kate, “The Fox Hunt,” airing at 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT on Fox, Ben (Nat Faxon) and Kate (Dakota Johnson) discover an unopened envelope from 15 years ago that contains the yearly scavenger hunt their dad used to organize for them when they were kids. The find prompts them to complete the unfinished hunt, with BJ (Lucy Punch), Tommy (Echo Kellum) and Maddie’s (Maggie Elizabeth Jones) help, but raises old issues of sibling rivalry. Meanwhile, the scavenger hunt takes an unexpected detour when BJ enlists Kate to help get her belongings back from an old fling.
In the all-new “In The Club” episode of The Mindy Project airing tonight at 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT, Shauna (Amanda Setton) takes the office to the hottest nightclub in town, where Mindy (Mindy Kaling) meets an unlikely suitor (guest star Tommy Dewey) who works as a lawyer for the New York Knicks. Meanwhile, Danny (Chris Messina) hits the dance floor, Jeremy (Ed Weeks) hits on a bride-to-be, and Morgan (guest star Ike Barinholtz) unexpectedly makes some extra cash as the club’s bathroom attendant. Season to date, The Mindy Project is the No. 1 new comedy among Adults 18-34.
