Fox Orders Additional ‘Mindy Project’ Episodes

The Tuesday night sitcom’s third season gets six more installments

The Mindy Project

Fox has raised the “Mindy Project” season order by six episodes, totaling 21.

Season-to-date, “The Mindy Project” is averaging a 1.6/5 in the advertiser-sought adults 18-49 demographic, per Nielsen’s “most current” ratings. That not-so-impressive number is offset by the sitcom’s solid critical reception.

The Mindy Kaling sitcom pulls in 3.1 million viewers weekly.

Diving deeper into the Nielsen numbers, Fox boasts “Mindy” as a Top 5 live-action comedy among women 18-34. Additionally, the show has been seeing 30-day multiplatform lifts of up to 99 percent this season when compared to Live + Same Day numbers.

Last week, “Mindy” and its lead-in, “The New Girl,” saw lifts with new Tuesday primetime opener “MasterChef Junior.” This week, both comedies fell back down.
