Good news for freshmen shows The Mindy Project and Ben and Kate - according to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has opted to expand the episode order for both shows after positive reviews from critics and fairly good premiere ratings. The Mindy Project received an additional order of nine episodes, bringing its total episode count for this season to a full 22, and Ben and Kate received an additional six episode order. 

"Ben and Kate and The Mindy Project have everything we want to stand for in comedy," Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said of the orders. "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."
