The Mindy Project
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.
Chris Messina, Mindy Kaling
Will they or won't they? It's a question as old as TV and yet, one that never seems to get old. However, after The Mindy Project's first season finale on Tuesday, the question has quickly turned to: Should they or shouldn't they? After Mindy (Mindy Kaling) reneged on her decision to go to Haiti with...
The Mindy Project
The cast changes at The Mindy Project continue.
Recurring star Ike Barinholtz — who plays Morgan and also writes for the freshman Fox sitcom — has been promoted to a series regular, star, creator and executive producer Mindy Kaling revealed at Fox's winter TV previews Tuesday.
The promotion is the most recent of many for The Mindy Project. Stephen Tobolwsky exited in December, Amanda Setton will also soon be departing, and...
Our top moments of the week:
14. Best (Worst) Performance: After Jess rebuffs Sam's attempt to win her back on New Girl, she changes her mind and decides to take him back. But to tell him so, she must sneak into the children's hospital where he works. When she and the gang run into a security guard, they follow Jess' lead and pretend to be carol singers. Although Jess is the only one of the bunch who can carry a tune and no one seems to know the words to "Come All Ye Faithful," she still belts an impressive "I don't know the words" to the tune of the classic Christmas carol. Sam magically appears, even more smitten with her than he was before. Dear Sam, we have a great idea for what to get Jess for Christmas: a....
Die Hard made $137 million at the worldwide box office, turned Bruce Willis a bona fide movie star and earned legions of adoring fans. But you won't catch The Office's Ellie Kemper screaming "Yippee-ki-yay!" anytime soon.
"I saw the clips and I saw enough," she tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "I could say for The Sound of Music and A League of Their Own — like, 'How have you not seen those movies?!' But I don't feel that connection to Die Hard. No offense to Bruce Willis."
That won't stop Kemper's Office alter-ego from at least trying to get into the 1988 action classic on the NBC comedy's Christmas episode (Thursday at 9/8c). "Pete learns that Erin hasn't seen Die Hard and this is one of his favorite movies," she says. "Pete can recite all the lines. When we were on set, all the guys knew...
Mindy Kaling and Ike Barinholtz
The Mindy Project is back (finally!). Series writer Ike Barinholtz, who also plays Morgan on the Fox sitcom, spoke to TVGuide.com about why viewers need to tune in Tuesday, Mindy's busy love life and what's up with Danny's (amazing) dance moves!
After a three-week hiatus, the freshman comedy returns Tuesday at 9:30/8:30c with an all-new Halloween episode. Sadly, the show will once again be pre-empted next week due to the presidential election, a move Barinholtz calls a mistake.
Amare Stoudemire, Mindy Kaling
Mindy Kaling has scored some high-profile talent to guest-star on her new Fox comedy, The Mindy Project.
Three NBA players — New York Knick Amar'e Stoudemire, Indiana Pacer Danny Granger, and free agent Baron Davis — will play themselves in the show's fourth episode, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The show also announced this week that it has added a love interest for Kaling's character.
