|2.9/1.67/1.2 (New Girl) |
1.9/1.28/1.3 (The Mindy Project)
Last season, Fox rang up big numbers on pre-premiere Tuesday, which included the premieres of Dads (2.2) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2.6) in the 8:00 hour. New Girl's 2.9 was a whooping eight tenths ahead of any result the rest of the season (aside from the post-Super Bowl airing), while Mindy's 1.9 was 0.4 above the next highest ep. It will be very tough to repeat those bounces with Utopia airing at 8/7c; it'll do only about a third of last year's comedy hour rating. However, the utter lack of competition should still get these shows past last year's 1.2/1.3 finales (and probably, again, above any ratings the rest of the season).
New Girl PLUS The Mindy Project Over/Under: 2.85.
