Mindy Kaling's Elle Magazine Cover Sparks Controversy

Mindy Kaling for Elle Magazine

Elle Magazine is facing backlash in the wake of its Women in TV issue, with some critics saying the publication intentionally highlighted only Mindy Kaling's face on the cover because she isn't as thin as some of the other honorees.

Gracing the other Women in TV covers are Amy PoehlerZooey Deschanel and Allison Williams, all of whom are shown in nearly full-body color shots. Kaling's picture, however, is cropped from the chest up and is in black-and-white. Check out all the covers here.

Ask Matt: The Scandal Hiatus, Carrie Preston and Good Wife, Sound of Music, Following

Scandal

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: Announcing a plan to take their top dramas off the air to avoid reruns is one thing, but how do you think ABC is actually going to fare for the next couple of months while Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Once Upon a Time and Revenge take two-month breathers? I am a fan of the airing-consecutively strategy, but I'm afraid they won't stick to this model, because quite frankly, the new shows they are using as substitutes in these timeslots don't look very good. What happens if something bombs? Will they have no choice but to rush these signature shows back to the air sooner?

Mike & Molly Boss on Show's New Direction: "It Was Necessary"

Melissa McCarthy

When Al Higgins took over as showrunner on Mike & Molly in May, executive producer Chuck Lorre posed a question that he couldn't answer.

"We sat down and the first thing Chuck Lorre said to me was, 'Why is Melissa McCarthy a movie star and not a TV star?' And I had no idea," Higgins tells TVGuide.com. "I was stumped. And he said, 'In her movies, people react to her and on the show, she reacts to everyone else.' I thought about that and he was right. He said, 'I want to flip that dynamic.'"

The Monday Playlist: A Night for Moms (Mabley and Mom), Who's Turning 50

Moms Mabley

With her floppy hat and flapping gums, Jackie "Moms" Mabley is mostly remembered these days for her outrageous appearances on late-'60s and '70s-era variety and talk shows, as mainstream as Ed Sullivan and as of-the-moment as the Smothers Brothers, performing racy and politically barbed stand-up routines whose sting was couched in a dirty-old-lady's guise.

Among those influenced by Mabley was Whoopi Goldberg, who performed an homage to the comedian early in her own career. In the HBO documentary Whoopi Goldberg Presents Moms Mabley (Monday, 9/8c), the View personality directs and participates in this tribute to the pioneering comic's life and legacy, with TV clips and audio excerpts (enhanced with crude animation) from her many comedy albums, which hold up surprisingly well. read more

Ask Matt: Scandal, Walking Dead, NCIS, Elementary, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Question: I started watching Scandal from the start, when it was simply a problem-of-the-week plot mixed in with a little soap opera with Olivia and the President. They lost me a little bit last year when they temporarily dropped that element to completely focus on the soap opera element when the president was shot. With the addition of the B613 storyline (and possible new Harrison storyline), I feel the show has lost its focus. I was highly enjoying Lisa Kudrow's story and performance only to have the show dragged down by B613's machinations and apparent manipulation of Quinn. I get the fear the show could be the political Love Boat where the guest stars get all the meaty storylines, but I watch shows like Strike Back for my spy action and adventure. Have these writers learned nothing from the mistakes countless shows including Alias and recently Revenge have made with these over-the-top secret maniacal agencies? — Brian
