The first televised Critics’ Choice Television Awards ceremony let TV thesps and creatives show their true colors Thursday night at the Beverly Hilton — and those colors were predominantly orange and black, with “Orange Is the New Black” winning three awards, while “Orphan Black” star Tatiana Maslany took home the lead drama actress trophy for the second year running.
“It’s phenomenal and so innovative what they’re doing, because they give so much freedom to the writers and ["Oitnb" creator] Jenji Kohan. This allows us more freedom as actors to bring our spunk to our characters without feeling censored,” Brooks told Variety.
Brooks and Maslany exchanged words and hugs on the red carpet, »

The comedian has been tapped to host the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards — which, for the first time, will only be broadcast online — from the Beverly Hilton on June 22.
“I am beyond thrilled to be hosting what I’m told is the most important television event of the year,” Griffin said in a statement. “Knowing that over 100 million people from every corner of the planet will be watching, I will try to keep my nerves at bay and deliver a great show. »
If the TV networks are wondering where their female under-25 audience was last night — they were at the Awardsline screening of Fox’s The Mindy Project. Fox always knew better than to cancel Mindy Project, and for anyone who ever had their doubts about the show’s popularity, given its low nightly ratings, look no further than the stampede of women who showed up at the Landmark Theatre in West La to catch the season finale “Danny and Mindy” and to get a chance to meet star/executive producer Mindy Kaling and castmembers Ike Barinholtz, Adam Pally, Ed Weeks, Xosha Roquemore and Beth Grant. Making good with those who couldn’t get into the overbooked screening, Kaling threw herself into the crowd for selfies, autographs and hugs. One fan exclaimed to Kaling, “To have an Indian woman like you onscreen, who is so nuanced, so smart and witty, who has flaws and strengths, »

Hulu has entered discussions to revive Community for that sixth season. Discussions are preliminary, but the move would make sense. The cult comedy is one of Hulu’s top shows plus the streaming service could use a signature show to draw attention to its original series.
Max Martini has joined the guest cast of the upcoming season of Covert Affairs, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Pacific Rim alum will play a former CIA agent who mysteriously went off the grid. That reminds me of another Covert Affairs character…
I was planning on telling you that LeVar Burton launched a Kickstarter to raise funds for a revived Reading Rainbow as a web show. However, it only took a few hours for Burton to hit his Kickstarter goal. That puts Reading Rainbow on a list with Veronica Mars for the quickest Kickstarter projects to meet its goal.

Casey Wilson tied the knot with fiancé David Caspe at the Ojai Valley Inn in Ojai, CA, on Sunday. Comedienne Whitney Cummings, Casey's close pal, captured the couple in a photo as they made their way down the aisle, and wrote, "Sorry boys, Casey Wilson is off Tinder," when she shared it on Instagram. The bride wore a lace-sleeved Monique Lhuillier gown for the traditional Jewish ceremony, which was officiated by her brother, Fletcher Wilson. Casey and David got engaged over the Labor Day weekend in 2013 after meeting on the set of Happy Endings two years earlier: David created the bygone ABC comedy, and Casey played the boy-crazy Penny Hartz. Their nuptials were also attended by Casey's former Happy Endings costars Elisha Cuthbert, Eliza Coupe, Adam Pally, Zachary Knighton, and Damon Wayans Jr., as well as Abby Elliott, who worked with Casey on Saturday Night Live. Casey and David paid »

Now this is an after party we want to join! The Mindy Project's cast is dressed to impress and enjoying some late-night pizza after a night out on the town in an adorable new cast shot we're exclusively sharing with you. (Yes, we know, we're the best.) In the first season 3 image, Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina, Adam Pally, Ike Barinholtz, Xosha Roquemore and Ed Weeks all cuddle up on a New York City sidewalk and we almost can't handle the cuteness. Fox's rom-com-gone-wrong recently wrapped up its ridiculously awesome second season, with Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) finally getting together at the top of the Empire State Building. Yes, we're still »
Years from now, sitcom fans will still be stuck mourning the end of the cut-off-in-its-prime Happy Endings, the ABC series that ran for three glorious and brief (but not gloriously brief) seasons, the brainchild of creator David Caspe, a revolving door of solid directors (including Fred Savage, the Russo brothers and Beth McCarthy-Miller, among many others), and a seriously game cast. The series may have centered on a standard-sounding premise — a group of six friends live and love in Chicago, kicking off after one of them leaves another one at the altar on their wedding day (sort of like if Barry was part of the core cast of Friends) — but its outlandishly clever humor and believable beating heart set it apart. It was good. It was really good. And you didn’t watch it, because ABC cancelled it. But despite the loss of the show, many of its talents have journeyed elsewhere. Damon Wayans Jr. »

If you're a diehard fan of "New Girl," you're probably pleased as punch that Damon Wayans Jr. returned to the show to reprise his role of Coach. Wayans Jr. appeared on the pilot of "New Girl" when the future of "Happy Endings" looked shaky, but he left his roomies behind once "Happy Endings" got renewed. Sadly, "Happy Endings" got canned anyway, but the loss is somewhat mitigated by the return of Coach and Wayans Jr. on "New Girl."
Even though Wayans Jr. has been totally rocking out as Coach in every episode, he was still being billed as a guest star. Come on, even Winston's cat Ferguson gets better billing than that! But now it's offish: The handsome comedian will be a regular on the fourth season of "New Girl," which means we can only hope for more amazing Coach insights like, "It really bums me out that I will »

Normally, I wouldn’t pass along news about Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson, but this one might interest some of you. Following allegations that he used a racial slur, Clarkson is saying he’s been warned by the BBC that any further instances will cost him his job. Seems rather win-win for those of us who are tired of him saying offensive things.
I’d say I’m going to miss that chest but Days doesn’t feature it very often, anyway.
For Grey’s Anatomy viewers, Isiah Washington‘s return was a polarizing moment. I was ready to consider that Washington may have grown in the time since his Grey’s exit. It »

When Mindy Project returns for its third season in the fall, Shulman & Associates will be missing one regular receptionist.
EW has confirmed that Zoe Jarman, who portrayed sweet and naive Betsy Putch, will not be returning as a series regular. A rep for the show added: “She has been asked to guest star, so it’s possible that fans will see her next season.”
Jarman is far from the first casting shakeup on the Fox comedy series — Anna Camp, Amanda Setton, and others have also departed. The show has also added new additions to the mix, like Peter (Adam Pally »

Chances are you’re still not over last week’s Mindy Project breakup, and we can’t blame you. But the good news? Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) might be done for now, but they’re not done forever.
“I think the dynamic between them is special and different and they are unlike any other couple on TV because they are such distinct characters and they fight so much,” says Ike Barinholtz, who plays lovable nurse Morgan on the show and co-wrote the big breakup episode. “To put them back together just makes so much sense…eventually.”

Coincidentally, both new episodes deal with the fallout of two break-ups. In New Girl’s “Big News,” Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) have to come clean that they’re just friends again, resulting in a “devastated” Schmidt. As for Mindy, “Think Like a Peter” follows Dr. L (Mindy Kaling) under the tutelage of her frat bro colleague Peter (Adam Pally), who tries to get the rom-com »

"The Mindy Project" finally returned after the Longest Hiatus Ever with two episodes prominently featuring Mindy and Danny hooking up. At least when the show came back it gave us Chris Messina reading "Bridget Jones' Diary" in a proper British accent. (Side note, can that be an actual audiobook we can buy? Asking for a friend.)
In "French Me, You Idiot," after making out in the most spacious airplane bathroom ever, the new couple returned home to find that Cliff made a grand gesture to get Mindy back. And since he didn't believe her when she tried to break up with him and then his grandmother died, Mindy pulled the classic "try very hard to get dumped" thing, which didn't actually work until she and Danny caused a fire and ruined his grandmother's funeral.
Mindy and Danny sort-of being together is awesome because it gives us excellent exchanges between »
Television shows are evolving organisms, which is one of the most exciting things about them, but also one of the scariest. Mediocre pilots can one day lead to great series, and vice versa. Brilliant shows can abruptly fall off a cliff, and mediocrities can stun you with leaps forward. Characters can die, settings can be abandoned, and even genres aren't sacrosanct. You just never know. One day an earnest, boring show about twentysomethings trying to make it in the big city can import Heather Locklear and turn into a gleefully trashy soap opera about the apartment complex of the damned. Or a black comic farce about the Korean War can take a more serious tone as it ages and various actors and producers come and go. Or a riveting thriller about a terrorist sleeper agent and the bipolar CIA agent chasing him can fall apart by keeping the sleeper agent alive much too long. »
