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

Chris Messina, Mindy Kaling

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.)

Amy Schumer Gears Up for Season 2 of Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer

Either Amy Schumer is the most modest woman in show business — or else she needs to have her hearing checked. Consider the facts: The 32-year-old's surprise Comedy Central hit, Inside Amy Schumer, is entering its sophomore season with a rabid following. Like Schumer herself, the series — a kinetic mix of sketches, man-on-the-street-style interviews and her live stand-up — is at turns racy, shrewd and deliciously warped, saved from actual wickedness by an undercurrent of chipper naïveté. (It's no surprise that Schumer cites Shirley Temple as a major inspiration.) She is also touring the country with her wildly popular stand-up act — while simultaneously writing and starring in a Judd Apatow movie, slated for release next summer. And yet, when asked about becoming the next big thing — Kristen Wiig comparisons come to mind — she balks. "Um... read more

Question: Just wondering if you've heard anything about or seen the pilot of FX's adaptation of Fargo yet? Obviously it's too early to tell, but just from the previews and the looks of the cast, it seems to me like it could be in contention for a few Emmys later this year? — Kevin

Khalil Muhammed, Amy Schumer and Michael Ian Black

Season 2 of comedian Amy Schumer's riotously raunchy sketch show Inside Amy Schumer doesn't premiere until Tuesday, April 1 (10:30/9:30c, Comedy Central), but that's no reason to wait to devour some new material fresh out of the edit bay.

The clip below — a send-up of all those irritatingly ubiquitous jewelry commercials —appears in the season's sixth episode. A viewing of The Bachelor 's season finale on March 11 prompted Schumer send us this reminder of the hollowness of most bauble-themed romantic gestures and the men who use them to buy time in a relationship.

The Tuesday Playlist: Funny Ladies, ABC's Knox Exclusive, Grimm's New Night

Zooey Deschanel and Dylan O'Brien

Everyone's losing it — or more to the point, remembering how they lost it — on one of this season's more uproarious episodes of Fox's New Girl, a reminder of just how potent the comic chemistry can be between Zooey Deschanel and her BFFs when they all hang together, sharing embarrassing stories (some more mortifying than others) about how their "innocence" (such as it never was) was stolen. This episode (Tuesday, 8:58/7:58c) will be especially enjoyable for fans of Max Greenfield's Fat Schmidt slapstick and for those who've been waiting for Lamorne Morris' Winston to emerge from the sidelines and get some major LOL action. Jess (Deschanel) starts the trip down Painful Memory Lane with glimpses from Prom Night, which brings suitors including Teen Wolf's Dylan O'Brien (Stiles!) into her life. But it's Winston's grotesque hook-up and Fat Schmidt's messy night in college with the girlfriend who would become Merritt Wever (from Nurse Jackie) that you're likely to remember. All that and another great payoff at the end. No sophomore slump for this show.
