When you think of books written by celebrities, "fine literature" might not be the first two words that come to mind —but College Candy rounds up 10 books by celebs you might actually want to read: Bossypants by Tina Fey: Funny, inspiring, and has some important things to say about feminism.

Shonda Rhimes and the Diversifying of Network Television

25 September 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Tonight marks the season 11 premiere of Grey’s Anatomy, the season 4 premiere of Scandal and the series premiere of How to Get Away With Murder. Each consists of a diverse cast and is produced by Shonda Rhimes.

When Grey’s Anatomy premiered in 2005, The New York Times ran an article about the show’s diversity, due in part to the color-blind casting technique used by Rhimes, writer, producer and creator of the show. The article called Seattle Grace Hospital a “multicultural hub where racial issues take a back seat to the more pressing problems of hospital life” and said that the show was created in Rhimes’ vision: “one in which color is more description than definition.”

Nine years later, and Rhimes is still revered for her vision, even receiving the Diversity Award from the Director’s Guild of America this past January, but she’s »

The Mindy Project: Season Three Ratings

24 September 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Despite low ratings, Fox renewed The Mindy Project once again last spring. If the ratings go lower, will it be cancelled or would this sitcom still be renewed for a fourth season? We'll have to wait and see.

On The Mindy Project, a talented obstetrician (Mindy Kaling) has a chaotic personal life and struggles to find the elusive perfect relationship. Her workmates are played by Chris Messina, Ed Weeks, Adam Palley, Ike Barinholtz, Beth Grant, and Xosha Roquemore.

Why track the ratings? The higher a show's ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

9/24 update: You can see the rest of the latest night's ratings. »

Move over, Duchess! Mindy Kaling proved that Kate Middleton doesn't monopolize the market on chic coat dresses on the episode "Annette Castellano Is My Nemesis" of The Mindy Project, which aired on Sept. 23. Read on to find out the story behind the multitasking look from the show's costume designer Salvador Perez.

Sun Rising Up: ‘Lost’ and Asian Women on TV

24 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The sixth episode of Lost was the first Sun episode. “House of the Rising Sun”, which originally aired on October 27, 2004, is one of the best episodes of the show’s first season, and it has stuck with me as the moment when Sun became a fully-formed and truly fascinating character, which she would remain until the end of the series.

Let’s talk about how rare this is. Sun is played by Yunjin Kim, a Korean actress who moved to the United States when she was 10, got some decent acting work, moved back to South Korea to star in films like Shiri (considered South Korea’s first blockbuster), and then was cast in Lost. In terms of representation on television, female Asian characters are hugely underserved, and Kim was one of the most consistently present Asian actresses on American TV for six seasons on Lost and now two seasons on Mistresses. »

The Mindy Project Recap: The Ma, the Myth, the Legend

23 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

As far as adversaries go, Mindy, you sure found a worthy one in Annette Castellano.

Danny’s mom makes her debut in this week’s Mindy Project, an episode that explores the Castellanos’ family dynamic by thrusting Dr. L into its midst.

Or, more accurately, Mindy thrusts herself into the guilt-trips, hurt feelings and favorites-playing that Danny and Richie have endured for years — and watching Mindy Kaling and Cheers queen Rhea Perlman throw down is going to be one of my recurring joys this TV season, I can already tell.

While the episode is still hot like Annette’s piping pot of gravy, »

Yas Girl of the Week: Mindy Kaling

19 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Is there anything Mindy Kaling can’t do? At 35, Mindy created and stars on her own TV show, wrote and acted on The Office for eight years before that, and published a book. With The Mindy Project starting up its third season this week to the best hype it’s ever had, Mindy is on a roll. She is also carving the way for Indian-American women behind and in front of the camera on American television.

Her autobiographical book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) was not only hilarious but also landed on the New York Times best sellers list. How does she still have time to come up with all of her funny tweets and Instagram posts? Mindy can do it all! And she gets to write herself into enviable dating situations and make out with hot guys (give us Chris Messina) every day. What a life! »

Ratings: ‘Talent’ Tops Tuesday; ‘New Girl’ Down From Last Year, Up Vs. Finale

17 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On paper, Fox’s “New Girl” got off to a rocky start in its fourth season premiere, down 45% from last season’s opener — but when compared to where the show left off (1.2 in adults 18-49 and 2.4 million in total viewers for its third season finale), the Zooey Deschanel comedy posted gains, scoring a 1.6 rating and 3.1 million total viewers. Whether it can improve those numbers once DVR viewing is factored in remains to be seen, but given the show’s audience erosion last season, it’s likely heartening for execs that fans were curious enough to give the laffer a second chance after a creatively uneven year.

Lead-out “The Mindy Project” told a similar story, posting a 1.3 in 18-49 (down from last year’s 1.9 premiere, but even with its season three finale). In total viewers, the Mindy Kaling series was up a tick from its most recent finale, with 2.8 million vs. »

6 Reasons The Mindy Project’s Danny Castellano Is TV’s Best New Yorker

17 September 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Thank you, Mindy Kaling, for the gift that is Danny Castellano. In an age where every New Yorker on TV is a hot-dog-eating cartoon — plastic housewives, greased-up sleazeballs, gum-snapping Mafia girlfriends — The Mindy Project’s Danny feels like a real person. A fast-talking, smooth-dancing, undershirt-wearing mama’s boy from Staten Island, he also happens to be played by Long Island’s own Chris Messina, who rocks perfect outer-borough pronunciation. This is rare. As Vulture’s resident Staten Island native (Fyi, Port Dogkill is not a real place), I have taken it upon myself to applaud the Mindy writers for creating such an accurate portrayal of someone born and bred outside of Manhattan.“Ma? Ma? Ma!”Danny has a very close relationship with his family. He practically raised his little brother (“Look at him, he's got the Castellano curse! He's got a perfect face.”), and every time he mentions his mother, »

Don't pick your jaw off the floor just yet! Chris Messina made viewers swoon with Aaliyah's choreographed "Try Again" dance, and melted hearts with those adorkable red reading glasses, but nothing else he's done has topped what went down on The Mindy Project's season three opener on Tuesday, Sept. 16.  Warning: Spoilers ahead! Messina's character, Dr. Danny Castellano, gave girlfriend Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) a sexy, half-naked striptease during the show's final scene in honor of his (gasp!) stripper past under the alias "Diamond Dan."

Jessica Biel Helps ‘New Girl’ Embrace Single Life While ‘Mindy Project’ Couples Up

(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you have not yet seen the Season 4 premiere of “New Girl” titled “The Last Wedding,” and the Season 3 premiere of “The Mindy Project” titled “We're a Couple Now, Haters!”) Call it a soft reboot, or at the least a focus shift for both of Fox's returning comedies. “New Girl” and “The Mindy Project” kicked off their new seasons by pushing their central characters in opposite directions, and it worked perfectly for both shows. While Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina gave coupledom a try on “The Mindy Project,” guest star Jessica Biel helped »

11 Times Chris Messina Proved He's TV's Best Leading Man in The Mindy Project's Premiere (Including That Final Dance)

16 September 2014 7:07 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

A devout Catholic divorcee with some pretty serious dad issues is the new manic pixie dream girl.  After tonight's season three premiere of The Mindy Project, we are boldly stating that Danny Castellano is the best male character on TV, thanks in large part to Chris Messina's go-for-broke comedy style. Who knew three years ago when the Fox sitcom first premiered that that guy who you had seen in countless indie movies, but couldn't quite remember his name would be down to perform a strip tease on network TV?! (Just add it to the list of reasons why Mindy Kaling is our spirit showrunner/should be the next president.) And while Messina has been stealing scene after scene season after season, the season »

Mindy Kaling Recalls Romance with Bj Novak: I Would've Married Him If He Asked

16 September 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Mindy Kaling got grilled about her real-life love life!

Before there was Mindy Lahiri and Danny Castellano's swoon-worthy romance on The Mindy Project, there was the dysfunctional relationship of Kelly Kapoor and Ryan Howard on The Office. Mindy Kaling opened about her longtime pal and former Office co-star B.J. Novak while on Monday's The Howard Stern Show, when she was grilled about why the two aren't involved romantically.

When asked if she ever had a "great love" who got away, the 35-year-old writer/actress admitted, "He's a good friend of mine, yeah. He's my best friend. He broke up with me. It was years and years ago that that breakup happened. I was so sad, not angry, sad. That was the hottest I ever looked 'cause I stopped eating. When I get depressed, I stop eating. I was so miserable and so beautiful."

'New Girl' vs. 'The Mindy Project': One's a Winner

16 September 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Fox's offbeat, female-centered comedies "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" premiered in 2011 and 2012, respectively, both were hailed as the season's best new comedy. But as the pair returns tonight, it's clear that only one takes full advantage of its star's distinctive persona -- and it's not the one you might expect. As part of a television vanguard of "young women askew," to use James Wolcott's phrase, Zooey Deschanel and Mindy Kaling once seemed poised to disrupt the pop cultural landscape. Neither is anywhere close to universally liked--the former has been called "twee" and the latter "smug," criticisms that often smack of discomfort with successful women. In embracing eccentric leading ladies, Fox implicitly promised two fresh, funny sitcoms with distinct perspectives on modern womanhood. Since then, while both series have weathered rough patches and witnessed moments of grand comic invention -- the hilariously »
