New Girl Neighbors Edpisodic - H 2012

Fox is upping the episode count on New Girl.

The Zooey Deschanel-led comedy, currently in its second season, will now air 24, the same number as last year.

The news comes after Fox solidified an order for two more episodes of Raising Hope.

The two Tuesday night comedies join The Mindy Project in garnering extra episodes for their current seasons.

New Girl, which has averaged 5.1 million viewers in Live+Same Day this season, will return to Fox on Tuesday following a week off due to the presidential debate.
