Fox announced Monday that it has picked up its Tuesday night comedies Glee for a fourth season, New Girl for a second and Raising Hope for a third. The news comes a month ahead of Fox's upfront presentation to advertisers and several weeks into the network's pilot season, which includes such projects as a serial killer drama from The Vampire Diaries' Kevin Williamson and comedy efforts from Cougar Town's Bill Lawrence and The Office's Mindy Kaling.
"Over the past season, New Girl has become the hottest new appointment series for young adults; Raising Hope has established itself as one of the smartest and most unique offbeat comedies on television; and Glee has continued its success as a genre-defying, global cultural phenomenon,” Fox Entertainment chief Kevin Reilly said in a statement announcing the news. “All three of these comedies add a fresh and distinctive flavor to our Tuesday nights, and I’m really happy to bring them back to our air next season.”
Glee has averaged 8.9 million total viewers and a 3.8 rating in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic so far this season, according to Nielsen. With the show's third year marching toward the graduation of its core cast members including Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer, the fourth will continue to feature the stars in what the network and actors have called a ground-breaking fashion, potentially a show-within-a-show format.
The Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk co-created series returns from its winter hiatus on Tuesday with the first of eight original episodes that will likely explain the trajectory of the newly announced next season.
For its part, the Zooey Deschanel starrer New Girl is averaging 8.3 million weekly viewers and a 4.2 demo rating this season. Since starting particuarly strong, the freshman effort has dipped more recently without the benefit of Glee as a lead-in.
Raising Hope is regularly luring 5.6 million viewers per week this season and a 2.6 rating in the key demo.
The three series have anchored Fox's Tuesday night comedy block this season, with the network pushing into a second night of comedy this season.
