Fox Tuesday Tonight

2 10 2012

Last week, wedged between two new episodes of NEW GIRL, BEN AND KATE, and THE MINDY PROJECT pulled decent numbers in the ratings considering that these episodes were readily available on-line for weeks before the premiere to generate interest. Tonight, Raising Hope returns to the line-up.

Once again, thanks to the FOX VIP program, I was able to screen tonight’s episodes of BEN AND KATE and THE MINDY PROJECT.

Alan Ruck guest stars tonight on BEN AND KATE‘s episode called “Bad Cop/Bad Cop” as the principal of Maddie’s school. There is a scene that cracked me up where Ben (Nat Faxon) does an impression of a voice that sounds like Alan Ruck’s impression of his call to the principal as Cameron Frye in the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” Kate (Dakota Johnson) has been lying about where she lives so Maddie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones) can get into a better public school, the parents of their friend, Tommy (Echo Kellum). Ben says, “May I remind you that you are a guest in your own home?” BEN AND KATE airing Tuesday, Oct. 2 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

On THE MINDY PROJECT, Mindy (Mindy Lahiri) and Danny (Chris Messina) interview for a new nurse in the practice, leaving Jeremy (Ed Weeks) to use his charms to fire the current nurse, Beverly (Beth Grant), in an aptly named episode, “Hiring and Firing.” I especially loved the name of one of the people interviewed, named Morgan “Ransom” Tookers (Ike Barinholtz), a reformed ex-convict. Ransom may seem to be a weird name, but I swear to you on my mother’s grave I have a neighbor whose name is Ransom and his dog’s name is Dexter. I have videotape of Dexter trying to jump our fence to get at my golden retriever, Maddie. THE MINDY PROJECT airing Tuesday, Oct. 2 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

And don’t forget RAISING HOPE returns tonight as well, rounding out the Fox Comedy Tuesday block.
