The Mindy Project's season finale aired this week, closing out a first season that started out a little shaky but has found its footing over the last few months and become one of the season's funniest new shows. And though a lot of this success is due to Mindy Kaling herself, she's not the only one who makes The Mindy Project so entertaining. Here are the reasons why I think the series has gone from promising new show to powerhouse comedy in its first season - all of which, incidentally, are on display in this week's finale. Mindy's relationship humor is now landing perfectly. When the season begins, Mindy is single, and I liked watching her dating life, but the hopeless single-girl routine has been done. However, Mindy has been shining when she's in a relationship, especially with current boyfriend Casey (Workaholics' Anders Holm). The jokes about relationships have »

"The Mindy Project" Season 1 came to a very funny finish tonight on Fox and one major question is bound to carry over to Season 2: Will doctors Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) and Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) ever get together?
When "Mindy" launched last fall, the pilot established Mindy's sexual fling with bad boy co-worker Jeremy (Ed Weeks) but that potentially ongoing story was almost immediately dropped as the series went through some growing pains and creative changes. At the same time, Messina's Castellano quickly became the show's breakout character -- a guy's guy from a working class Staten Island background with a love for Springsteen and baseball. He couldn't be more different from Kaling's girly pop culture loving romantic comedy fan. And that's when fans started wondering if they'd hook up.
Blame "Mindy's" rom-com influences, the sparkling performances of Kaling and Messina, or the writers' tendency to give Mindy and »
Wow! What a finale! Mindy Kaling has had a place in my heart ever since this moment and Mindy Lahiri ever since she gave up going to a party with a bunch of basketball players to stay with her friends (and footed the bill). Over the season, we’ve grown to understand Mindy and admire her love of all things rom com. Tonight, she got to do her very own big gesture.
We begin the finale with Mindy and Casey failing miserable at Skype (or Skype-equivalent) sex. Has computer sex ever worked out on a TV show? And not to be too nit-picky, »

Already renewed for a second season, Fox's freshman comedy "The Mindy Project" has the rare pleasure to close out its season on Tuesday, May 14, with the assurance that it'll return next year.
But that doesn't mean that star, executive producer and writer Mindy Kaling -- who plays love-hungry 30-something Ob/Gyn Dr. Mindy Lahiri -- is ending at a different place than she planned.
Out on the Universal Studios back lot, around the corner from what looks like a giant courthouse and a huge, flat painted row of urban buildings, Kaling is taking a break inside a jumbled restaurant set. From the giant Buddha and pagoda lamps, it might have been a Chinese eatery.
The penultimate episode is in production, involving a frat party and two of Mindy's ex-boyfriends: cool Lutheran pastor Casey (Anders Holm, "Workaholics") and dentist Tom (Bill Hader, "Saturday Night Live"). There's even some violence, but first, »
"The Mindy Project" closes out Season 1 tonight with a finale that continues the show's recent winning streak. Full of dense plotting, romantic complications and laugh out loud moments, the episode co-written by creator and star Mindy Kaling and Jeremy Bronson won't disappoint anyone who has warmed to this standout romantic comedy over the course of its first 24 episodes.
We'll have a full breakdown after the episode airs tonight, but here are five teases of what to expect from "Take Me With You."
1) Mindy and Pastor Casey (Anders Holm) try out Skype sex
After Casey dropped a bomb on Mindy last week -- he wants to move to Haiti for a year for missionary work -- Mindy is still wrestling with how Ok she is with the whole idea. A disastrous attempt at Skype sex (like phone sex, but with video) doesn't exactly help.
2) Mindy's ex-boyfriend Jamie (Bj Novak) returns and »
Mindy Kaling is a woman with a decision to make. The first season of her breakout Fox sitcom, The Mindy Project, comes to a close tonight and, while fans have taken quite a shine to Mindy's minister boyfriend, Casey (Anders Holm), they've definitely got opinions on her relationship with Danny (Chris Messina)—arguably making Mindy and Danny TV's best new will-they-or-won't-they couple (with New Girl's Nick and Jess passing the torch). Are fans in for seasons of small moments and longing similiar to Jim and Pam on The Office, on which Kaling served as executive producer, or an avuncular relationship à la 30 Rock's Liz and Jack? We chatted with Kaling and »
Whether you thought Season 1 was brilliant, silly or somewhere in-between, the message of the show's Season 2 promo is: We're making a show for everyone!
"This season is a lot of fun, very exciting," Sorkin promises in the promo above. "Anybody coming to it new is not going to have much trouble picking up what's going on."
There will be a new overarching story (much of the Acn crew is preparing for a deposition) and big challenges for returning characters: Jim opts to leave office tensions and love triangles behind to cover Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, Sloan and Don are going to get closer and Maggie will "lose everything" (ruh roh!).
Maybe the best news for fans? Chris Messina will be »
Christina first turned up at the tail end of April 9 installment "Santa Fe," but in tonight's "Triathlon" we'll actually see her interact with Danny, Mindy and the rest of the core characters. Plus we'll learn why she's back and what she wants. (If you're guessing it involves that letter Morgan found in Danny's office and mailed without Danny's knowledge, well, good guess.)
"None of us in the office really know anything about his ex-wife, so it's like a total shock," "Mindy" co-star Zoe Jarman teased at the show's recent PaleyFest event. "I think it'll be surprising in a good way."
All doctors get to heal people, but not all doctors get to bring new life into the world on a regular basis, but that's the job of the Ob/Gyn, like the ones portrayed on Fox's Tuesday-night comedy "The Mindy Project."
Inspired by the Ob/Gyn mom of star, producer and writer Mindy Kaling ("The Office"), the freshman show (already renewed for a second season) focuses on romcom-loving Dr. Mindy Lahiri, who's in practice with Drs. Danny Castellano (Chris Messina, "The Newsroom") and Jeremy Reed (Ed Weeks).
Although Danny can be gruff on the surface, Messina -- taking a break before starting work on the show's penultimate episode on the New York street set at Universal Studios in Los Angeles -- thinks it was a little baby magic that set him in his professional path.
"I always thought he went to med school for something else," Messina tells Zap2it, »
It started out more or less PG and just went downhill from there -- hilariously though, if we may add. Conan asked Messina, who stars on Mindy Kaling's "The Mindy Project' and will be on the second season on HBO's "The Newsroom" this summer, what his kids think about their dad being in showbiz.
Messina, who has two small children, said they mostly think of him as a clown. Then he explained: "On 'The Mindy Project' we just did this episode called 'The Triathalon' and I was unfortunately written in a speedo," he said, and explained that to prep himself for the role, he sunbathed in his back yard and unfortunately got sunburned. The quick easy Hollywood fix? A spray tan. »

"The Newsroom" is gearing up for Season 2 and now, HBO has released a teaser (above).
Although nothing is really revealed in 36 seconds of switch-flicking and newsroom-illuminating, "News Night" is definitely "back on the air" with Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels).
"The Newsroom" Season 2 will see several guest stars including Jane Fonda, Patton Oswalt, Marcia Gay Harden and Meryl Streep's daughter Grace Gummer. But according to Chris Messina, who recurs as Reece on Aaron Sorkin's drama, guesting on a series isn't always easy.
"The 'Newsroom' set is very intimidating to me because most of my stuff is with Jane Fonda, Jeff Daniels and Sam Waterston," he told HuffPost TV. "They're all pretty amazing, and being a guest -- and I'm sure even Jane Fonda felt this way -- being a guest on any show, when anyone's in a groove and they feel very comfortable is tough."

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars
The Performer | Candice Glover
The Show | American Idol
The Episode | ”Top 6 Perform”
The Airdate | April 10, 2013
The Performance | Candice Glover got a rude shock a week ago Thursday on American Idol‘s Top 7 results night. When the show’s quartet of judges and mentor Jimmy Iovine were asked to name their personal Top 3 lists, only Mariah Carey included the 23-year-old vocalist from St. Helena Island, Ga — despite the fact that she’s been consistently fantastic in every performance since her audition aired in January. To make matters worse, when Ryan Seacrest revealed America’s vote totals, »

Though he's most recently known for his role as the grumpy-but-kind doctor Danny Castellano on Mindy Kaling's "The Mindy Project," Chris Messina's face has popped up often in numerous movies and TV shows in recent years. So often, in fact, that it gets overwhelming for the actor.
"There were times when I was shooting 'The Newsroom' at six in the morning and then I would go home and start shooting 'The Mindy Project,'" Messina said of playing Danny and Reese of Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" simultaneously. "Ultimately, I'm lucky as an actor to have that as a problem. But it was pretty tiring, and I felt like my work suffered on both shows because my focus was split. But it was definitely a fun and challenging exercise to go from such different characters and roles."
But Messina was able to take a few »

It's a big week for Fox's "The Mindy Project." The freshman comedy will air two episodes -- one tonight (April 2) and another on Thursday (April 4) following "American Idol" and a special "New Girl" -- and introduce two new love interests for series creator and star Mindy Kaling's character Dr. Mindy Lahiri.
Anders Holm ("Workaholics") begins a four-episode arc tonight as a character Kaling describes as a "minster with a lot of swagger. It's almost like he's a minister crossed with a Vegas party promoter."
He and Mindy quickly hit it off and enter into what Kaling calls Mindy's "raciest relationship yet. It's a very funny dynamic to have that with a Christian minister."
Thursday's episode welcomes guest star Josh Meyers (of "Mad TV" and the real life young brother of "Saturday Night Live" head writer Seth Meyers, who guest starred in "Mindy" episode "Hiring and Firing" earlier this season »
"Amanda Knox for partying; Jesus Christ for dinner…" Mindy Kaling is drawing up the imaginary guestlists for her almost-as-imaginary social life, explaining that the most important rule comes down to inviting "no one funny. Except for me. So I would seem funnier in light of that."
Kaling is pro-league funny, though. Not "ha ha, that's cute" funny, but "ha ha, I'm writing, producing, directing and starring as the lead in my own sitcom because I'm that bloody funny" funny. And she is. Most viewers who first saw her in the Us Office, playing the spectacularly vapid Kelly Kapoor, probably wouldn't have known that she started on the series as a staff writer at just 24. Kaling was the only woman in the writers' room, holding her own against four New Yorkers who had all, »

In an effort to review every new film I see this year -- a task I have never accomplished but there's a first time for everything -- I will resort to capsules like these when I haven't reviewed properly. (I realize that my "Oscar" section of reviews implies that all films should be seen through this prism. This implication is not literal or an endorsement -- it's just something that's fun for me and some of you to think about.)
We're ten years on from Yossi & Jagger and Yossi is now a doctor, who buries himself in work to avoid living life or moving beyond that love cut short. When a chance encounter with Jagger's mother shakes him from his stupor, he ends up on holiday. Some of the notes are beautifully played -- the early tearful scene with Jagger's mother is super -- but Yossi is a maddeningly passive protagonist. »

Fans of The Mindy Project were treated to a lively Q&A with some of the core members of the cast and producing staff, and a chance to see “Mindy’s Birthday” (airing March 19), Friday in Los Angeles at the PaleyFest.
Fresh off the news that The Mindy Project would be returning to Fox for a second season, the cast seemed grateful and at ease, and spent the majority of the panel doing their Chris Messina impressions. Show creator Mindy Kaling was sweet, gracious and self-deprecating, and admitted that she loves to look at Messina and that she was excited »

Last night, the cast of The Mindy Project teamed up at PaleyFest to preview next week's episode for a crowd of fans and reporters and to talk about working on the show. It was just announced that the series was picked up for a second season, and Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina, Ike Barinholtz, Ed Weeks, and Beth Grant talked about what we might learn about their characters in the future - especially when it comes to their love lives. They also weighed in on new characters they hope to bring to the series, their favorite romantic comedies, and Mindy's return to The Office. Here are seven things we learned about The Mindy Project and its cast at last night's panel and screening: 1. Chris wants Mindy and Danny to kiss: The sexual tension between Danny and Mindy is one topic fans couldn't wait to dig into. Chris admitted that while it's »
