    That’s great news about Fox renewing The Following for a second season since this is becoming one of my favorite shows on TV. I work at DISH and several of my coworkers have said that they are excited to see The Mindy Project and New Girl get renewed as well. I missed last night’s episode of The Following, but I’ll watch it later today since it was recorded on my DISH Hopper. I never worry about missing new episodes of The Following because my DVR automatically records Fox shows during primetime.
