The Mindy Project, which debuted on Fox in 2012, has never been a big hit in the ratings. It averages about 3.1 million viewers per episode and a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic, according to Variety.
However, due in part to Kaling’s high-profile, it has something of a cult following, particularly among women. It’s also garnered significant critical acclaim. Former Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly was a big supporter of the show, and its place on the network hasn’t faltered in the network’s rebuilding.
The Mindy Project airs Tuesday nights on Fox at 9:30 p.m. EST.
