CHICAGOFOX announced today that they have renewed their three biggest critical hits, the Tuesday night comedies “New Girl,” “Raising Hope,” and “Glee.” Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, made the announcement via press release, in advance of the company’s official May Fall schedule announcement. The renewals for smash hit “New Girl” and reliable performer “Glee” came as a surprise to no one. “Raising Hope” was closer to the bubble and so the early renewal makes for good news for its fans.

Reilly said, “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. 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.

All three shows return to the same night — Tuesdays — where it seems likely that they will also air in the fall. The network had recently experimented with four comedies on the night but “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” and “Breaking In” bombed and will not return.

“New Girl” is the number one new show among Adults 18-34 and “Glee,” while down this year, is still a top ten comedy for Adults 18-49.
