'The Goodwin Games' Might Benefit From the Time Limit

The Goodwin Games premieres tonight at 8:30 p.m. eastern on Fox. Check your local cable box for confirmation. Or you can just watch the episode right now.

The Goodwin Games is a cute, fun show that has a 99.9 percent chance of not lasting beyond its seven episode order. Which is a good thing.

You probably know the names of Carter Bays and Craig Thomas – they are the creators and executive producers of How I Met Your Mother, a comedy that is about to continue to extend a cool, lofty premise even longer past the point of diminishing returns for a final, ninth season. Well, [...]

Mindy Kaling and How I Met Your Mother Team Coming to Fox

What's the point of upfronts if all the networks are just going to announce everything the week before, all willy nilly (oddly, All Willy Nilly is also the name of a yet to be picked up CBS pilot – no it's not)? Jealous of all the NBC bean spilling, last night, FOX announced its three new single-camera comedies for next season.

First, is Mindy Kaling's highly anticipated It's Messy, in which she plays a doctor trying to have it all. Besides Kaling, The Office's Howard Klein and BJ Novak will executive produce the show (things are just looking bleaker and bleaker over in Scranton). Her co-stars – Ed Weeks, [...]

Fox Won't Air 'The Goodwin Games' Until Late Spring of Maybe Even Summer

The Fox network still has one new sitcom that hasn't debuted this season, The Goodwin Games, and according to Fox chairman Kevin Reilly, it won't be placed on the schedule anytime soon.

Speaking to reporters at the Television Critics Association tour yesterday, Fox chairman Kevin Reilly said this of the fate of the show:

"I'm creatively very happy with what's happening in [our Tuesday comedy] block. But [...]

Fox Buys New Show From HIMYM Creators

According to TVLine, Fox has snapped up a new comedy from How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, though since it won't star a horny Neil Patrick Harris, it's hard to really see the point. The single-camera show follows "three siblings who reconnect after their father’s death" and will be titled The Goodwin Games, probably because How I Met Your Dead Father seems a little gauche.

FOX Reveals its Predictable New Schedule

As the first place network, FOX is different place than NBC and their predictable schedule suggests as much. Tuesday becomes their night of sitcoms, with the only somewhat comedic Glee moving to Thursdays. Raising Hope moves to 8:00, which is perfect for its family focus, and the hotly anticipated The Mindy Project goes right where it should be at 9:30, post New Girl. There isn't much to discuss, as it’s a pretty safe schedule. Check it out below. What do you think? Are these your go-to Tuesday plans?
