On Tuesday, Jan. 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Tuesday, Feb. 5 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and Tuesday, Feb. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), FOX will air all-new one-hour episodes of Raising Hope, followed by all-new episodes of New Girl (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and The Mindy Project (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) in their regularly scheduled time periods. On Tuesday, Feb. 12, as previously announced, encore episodes of Raising Hope (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) and New Girl (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) will air, followed by the STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS (9:00-10:30 PM ET/live in all time zones). On Tuesday, Feb. 19 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), an all-new episode of Raising Hope leads off the night, followed by an encore of New Girl (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), and all-new installments of New Girl (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and The Mindy Project (9:30 PM ET/PT).

In the special one-hour episode of Raising Hope airing Tuesday, Jan. 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Jimmy (Lucas Neff) and Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) tie the knot. Then, as a wedding gift from Barney (Gregg Binkley), the Chance family heads off to Los Angeles to watch the taping of Hope’s (Baylie and Rylie Cregut) favorite TV show. On an all-new episode of NEW GIRL (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT), Schmidt (Max Greenfield) falls for a beautiful woman (guest star Brooklyn Decker), while Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick’s (Jake Johnson) relationship takes a surprising turn. On a brand-new episode of The Mindy Project (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), Mindy (Mindy Kaling) finally thinks she’s met the perfect guy (guest star BJ Novak).

Tuesday nights heat up this spring when Chef Gordon Ramsay returns for the Season 11 premiere of HELL’S KITCHEN on Tuesday, March 12 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), followed by all-new episodes of NEW GIRL (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and The Mindy Project (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). In the hit cooking competition series, aspiring restaurateurs are put through an intense culinary academy to prove they possess the right combination of ingredients to win a life-changing grand prize. Each week on HELL’S KITCHEN, the contestants will brave Chef Ramsay and his fiery command in the kitchen as they compete in rigorous culinary challenges and dinner services. In each episode, the losing team will put two contestants on the chopping block, and Ramsay will eliminate one chef. Only those who can handle the heat in the kitchen will earn a coveted black jacket and continue to compete for the ultimate prize. HELL’S KITCHEN is produced by ITV Studios America in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions. Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Gordon Ramsay serve as executive producers.

The one-hour season finale of RAISING HOPE will air on a special night Thursday, March 28 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following American Idol (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

This sucks. Ben and Kate was a really funny show and way better than Raising Hope and The Mindy Project. Maybe Fox should put Ben and Kate on another night instead of cancelling it. Seems like my Tuesday comedies will begin and end with New Girl.
