Zooey Deschanel as Jess in ”New Girl.” (Greg Gayne)

“The Following,” starring Kevin Bacon (the good guy) and James Purefoy (the bad guy), is this season’s No. 2 rated broadcast drama when DVR-ing up to seven days after broadcast is factored in, Fox noted.

“New Girl” is Fox’s most watched comedy; “Raising Hope” is Fox’s “Rules of Engagement” — plays solid no matter where the network slaps it. “The Mindy Project” early pick-up is more of a mystery.
