Simon Cowell, Mindy Kaling

Less than 24 hours after Brooklyn Nine-Nine's surprise double wins at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly touted the network's Tuesday slate of comedies while also saying that he hopes for growth.

"I'm very proud of all four shows. I think they've all performed very well. ... We put a nice little crown on top with our wins," Reilly told reporters Monday at Fox's Television Critics Association winter previews. Although Reilly called the low ratings for Dads, Brooklyn, New Girl and The Mindy Project "a frustrating situation," he also noted that all four comedies are "at the top of the pack" compared to comedies on other networks.

Chozen's Bobby Moynihan on His Character's Sexuality: "It's Not What the Show Is About"

Chozen

FX's new comedy Chozen touts itself for featuring "the world's first gay, white, animated rapper," but star Bobby Moynihan says his character's sexuality never defines him.

"It's not what the show is about. It's not very heavy-handed on the politics or anything," the SNL star tells TVGuide.com. "There's a couple lines in the second episode where he wanders into an LGBT meeting and they're asking him if he's gay or bisexual and he says, 'Why are you trying to label us?' ... I  feel like it's not such a crazy thing anymore and it shouldn't be."
