FOX has renewed its freshman hit comedy, 'The Mindy Project' starring Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina for a second season.
The series premiered to almost five million viewers which is pretty low for a new series. With DVR/PVR playback and internet viewing it was actually seen by nearly 10 million viewer. The show had bottomed out around the three million mark but has steadily been raising in viewership over the past couple weeks. With a one-hour comedy block paired with 'New Girl' the series has been able to retain almost all of NG's viewers.
Here is a list of the last five-aired episodes:
Episode 12 - Hooking Up is Hard - January 22 - 3.05 million viewers
Episode 13 - Harry & Sally - January 29 - 3.20 million viewers
Episode 14 - Harry & Mindy - February 5 - 3.60 million viewers
Episode 15 - Mindy' Minute - February 19 - 3.05 million viewers
Episode 16 - The One That Got Away - February 26 - 3.26 million viewers
The season finale will air on May 7, 2013. No word on how many episodes have been ordered for season two, but the usual 22-24 episodes seems right.
