What does Fox have in store for us for the fall? Overall, it looks like they’re playing it safe and coming out with more programs that replicate their biggest hits. Here’s a rundown of everything you can expect.
The Mob Doctor: With its incredibly straight forward title, I probably don’t have to tell you that this is a show about a doctor who works for the mob. Fox is pairing it with Bones and I’m not sure we need another doctor show, so I wasn’t optimistic. But the trailer really sucked me in to the world of Dr. Grace Delvin (Jordana Spiro). If it can figure out how to maintain the tension across seasons, this could be an enjoyable thrill ride. The Mob Doctor will air Mondays at 9.
Ben and Kate: If you can get past the fact that the trailer is eerily like a reenactment of the New Girl trailer, there’s a lot of potential here. I say that mostly because Nat Faxon (Allen Gregory) is the cutest, funniest man in the world and I think we should all be supportive. Some people might find the show too saccharine sweet, but I personally like that Fox has decided to start creating such good-hearted comedies lately. Ben and Kate will air Tuesdays at 8:30.
The Mindy Project: They had me at Mindy Kaling. The trailer has plenty of laughs and shows that the show will be true to Mindy Kaling’s unique sense of humor and point of view. Plus, it promises appearances Saturday Night Live’s Bill Hader as a bonus. The Mindy Project will air Tuesdays at 9:30.
