Renewed: Glee, New Girl, Raising Hope.

FOX has renewed three of its shows ahead of the annual Upfronts, due next month.

Glee, New Girl, and Raising Hope have all been renewed.

Glee will enjoy a fourth season despite a drop in its numbers and the upcoming “graduation” for characters played by Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer.

Co-creator Ryan Murphy had previously ruled out the three exiting the show or enjoying their own spin-off, and spoken about incorporating them into “a ground-breaking” story that is potentially a show-within-a-show format.

Any notion of a Glee concert tour is also off the table.

Glee has been averaging 8.9 million total viewers in the US and a 3.8 rating in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic.

New Girl is averaging 8.3 million weekly viewers and a 4.2 demo rating while Raising Hope, pulls 5.6 million viewers per week and a 2.6 rating in the key demo.

FOX Entertainment chief Kevin 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 air in Australia on the TEN Network.

  1. @J Bar – because they are rating well, NG and RH are relatively new and FOX needs some consistency in its programing since it will be loosing House in May. Glee is still a hit in the US even if TEN have teated it badly here.

    Yes we need Fringe to be renewed, Alcatraz is dead in the waters of San Francisco Bay!

    @MuchoTB – so the constant TBBT re-runs are doing their job. I like the show from day 1 but it’s only this season I’ve become obsessed and needing to find any spoilers to know what will happen with Leonard & Penny LOL

  2. I still enjoy Glee so am happy it got renewed

    Not a fan of Raising Hope, didn’t like the Southern “twang” humour – not surprised it got shafted to Eleven. New Girl is an okay show but I find it ‘entertaining’ rather than funny

    Strangely I’ve warmed to the Big Bang Theory after five years of thinking of it as one of the worst shows on TV. Seems they made Sheldon less annoying and more sympathetic in later seasons…at least thats what I saw

  3. I’m glad there is some good news for those that love these shows. I’m hoping there’ll be a Fringe renewal too if there can be a deal that can be worked out. As it’s a great show and I hope for one more season.
