The Mindy Project Finale: Will Danny Win Mindy Back?

Danny (Chris Messina) went in for a kiss again on last week's Mindy Project, but our favorite doctor was having none of it. Mindy (Mindy Kaling) shut Danny down — hard — for only wanting her when he couldn't have her. And good for her! Danny was acting like a royal jerk. But thankfully, he'll try and make up for it in Tuesday's Season 2 finale (9:30/8:30c, Fox) when he sets out to win Mindy back.

In homage to You've Got Mail, Danny places a missed connection ad for Mindy in a newspaper (because do you really think Danny's heard of Craigslist?) and begins courting our modern day Shopgirl under the guise of being someone else.

How Seth Meyers and TV Showrunners Are Using Twitter to Find New Writers

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?!'"

The "NBC Comedy Playground" advisory board includes... read more

Mindy, Amy and (on DVD) Laura Petrie: TV's Funny Girls

Having recently been renewed for a third season, disproving TV's usual out-of-sight/out-of-mind policy, Fox's The Mindy Project emerges from a three-month hiatus with back-to-back episodes (Tuesday, 9/8c) demonstrating Mindy Kaling's devotion to screwball comedy. A concept which Amy Schumer would probably find a way to make sound really, hilariously dirty. (Her uproarious Comedy Central sketch-com Inside Amy Schumer returns at 10:30/9:30c, making this an especially happy April Fools Day.)
