“The Mindy Project” and “New Girl” will return to Tuesday, and the latter sitcom has earned the prized post-Super Bowl spot next February, Fox said.

Their block mate, “Raising Hope,” is moving to Friday for its fourth season, where it will be paired with “Enlisted,” about a man who returns home to reconnect with his two brothers and take charge of a group of misfits on a small Florida Army base.

Its cast includes Geoff Stults, who starred in the now-canceled “Ben and Kate.”

Other series canceled by Fox include “Touch,” ”Goodwin Games,” ”Mob Doctor” and the long-running “Cops,” which has been picked up by the Spike network.

One new reality show, a cooking competition for youngsters ages 8 to 13 with the working title “Junior Masterchef,” will debut in the fall with Gordon Ramsey among its coaches.

In midseason, Greg Kinnear will take on his first continuing broadcast series role in “Rake,” a legal drama based on a hit Australian series of the same name. The actor, whose movie credits include “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Baby Mama,” starred in the cable miniseries “The Kennedys.”

Fox’s other new shows, all set for midseason, are:

• “Gang Related,” about a gang task force in Los Angeles confronting the city’s most dangerous criminals, stars Terry O’Quinn (“Lost”) as the task force’s leader and rapper-producer RZA, founder of the Wu-Tang Clan, and Ramon Rodriguez as members.

• “Us & Them,” a comedy based on the British hit “Gavin and Stacey,” stars Jason Ritter (“Parenthood”) and Alexis Bledel (“The Gilmore Girls”) as a young couple who find their relationship complicated by family and friends.

• “Surviving Jack,” based on Justin Halpern’s semiautobiographical book, is set in 1990s Southern California and stars Christopher Meloni (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) in a coming-of-age sitcom about a man and his son.

• “Murder Police,” an animated comedy about an inept detective and his colleagues, features the voices of Will Sasso, Chi McBride, Jane Lynch and Jason Ruiz, one of its executive producers.
