The Mindy Project: In Defense of Mindy and Danny's Breakup

"Sorry about that." 

Mindy Project writer and star Ike Barinholtz says up front, apologizing for his part in Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny's (Chris Messina) shocking breakup last week.

"We got some little abuse on twitter, a little friendly abuse. But you know when that happens I kind of love that," Barinholtz tells TVGuide.com. "It just means that people are not only watching the show but are passionate about the show. And they really get invested in it enough to tweet, 'You bastard, how could you do this?!'"

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

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."

How Mindy Project's Mindy Kaling Celebrates the Strength of Weak Female Characters

Strong female characters are rarely allowed to be nuanced on TV. They don't get to be brilliant, vain or funny. They get to be strong (and maybe sexy, if they're lucky). They kick a--, overcome obstacles and rarely display any signs of feminine vulnerability. Often times, their strength is framed as the result of some "issue," (SVU's Olivia Benson troubled childhood, Sonya Cross' Asperger's on The Bridge), as though the women are only strong because a catalyst forced them to be this way.

But Mindy Lahiri doesn't have issues (well, she has issues, but not in that sense). She's a strong, well-developed comedic antihero on par with  Michael Scott. But many Mindy Project viewers didn't warm to Mindy as quickly as they took to the equally offensive Office boss. "I think that [Mindy] is very resilient and very confident and until you see her display kindness or show rapport with other people, it's hard for an audience just to decide they love her," Mindy Kaling tells TVGuide.com, recalling the initial reaction to the character.

The Mindy Project: How Does Happy Endings' Adam Pally Fit In?

The Mindy Project went through so many cast shakeups in its first season, it felt like the ever-changing face of Degrassi. And on Tuesday (9:30/8:30c, Fox), we'll be introduced to yet another new series regular, Adam Pally. The Happy Endings alum plays Peter Prentiss, a fratty new doctor at Schulman & Associates who doesn't exactly make a good first impression on his co-workers.

"He's smart and a really good gynecologist. He actually takes his job really seriously," Pally tells TVGuide.com. "But... read more

The Mindy Project: What's Next for Mindy and Danny?

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 Is Finally Legitimately Awesome

Even the most die-hard Mindy Kaling fans had to acknowledge that The Mindy Project's first season had some flaws. And unfortunately, right when the show seemed to be finding its groove, the season was over. Now, The Mindy Project  is back for Season 2 and poised to be the great comedy we always wanted it to be.

The first season of the The Mindy Project suffered from a severe lack of focus. Torn between being a workplace comedy and a meta rom-com, The Mindy Project was a little all over the place. 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.
