Saturday Night Live
Live from New York, it's...NBC's hottest show? After nearly 40 years on the air and countless cast changes — including the losses of Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen and (soon) Seth Meyers in the last two seasons alone — Saturday Night Live routinely ranks as one of the Peacock Network's highest-rated series in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49 age demographic (just below The Voice, The Blacklist and Chicago Fire).

Fox has given a series order to Mulaney, a new ensemble comedy from comedian John Mulaney and Saturday Night Live showrunner Lorne Michaels.
Chris Messina, Mindy Kaling
The Mindy Project's Season 2 premiere ended with a major twist: Casey (Anders Holm) called off the wedding to Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and went back to Haiti without her. And while the couple has agreed to do long distance, it's not going to be easy (especially with their floundering Skype sex skills). So what's next for the adorably odd couple?
The Mindy Project
Even the most die-hard Mindy Kaling fans had to acknowledge that The Mindy Project's first season had some flaws.

Certain episodes featured so many disjointed story lines that it felt stitched together like a comedy Frankenstein. But even amid the confusion, the show always had enough great jokes — delivered by some of Hollywood's hottest actors — to keep me watching.
Six new faces are joining the Saturday Night Live cast as featured players, NBC announced Monday.
Stand-up comedian Brooks Wheelan joins previously reported new hires Beck Bennett, Michael Patrick O'Brien, John Milhiser, Kyle Mooney and Noël Wells.

Our top moments of the week:
11. Best Arrival: Viewers say goodbye to 24/7 soccer coverage and hello to FX's new sister channel, FXX, in appropriate fashion. When FXX officially kicks off at 7 a.m. Monday morning, the reception begins to go out and the game footage interchanges with an image of a black leather couch. Suddenly, the black leather couch begins to move and out from the seams bursts a very hot and a very naked Danny DeVito in a classic It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia clip. Goal!
10. Most Surprising Twist: Mistresses' Karen thinks her nightmare is over after the wrongful-death lawsuit against her is dismissed, but then her medical license gets suspended for six months. Who ratted her out for sleeping with Thomas (not to mention helping him die)? Not Elizabeth, but her...
