Are Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak a Couple Again? Mindy Project Star Dishes on Dinner Date With Her Bff

20 October 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Are Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak more than friends once again? The former Office mates have been under the are-they-on-again microscope ever since Kaling opened up to Howard Stern about just how deep her feelings were for Novak back in the day, and a recent spotting of the besties at dinner did nothing to dispel the speculation. But while the creator and star of The Mindy Project assures us that there's nothing new to report about her and Novak on the romance front, she admits that she's rather enjoying the vigilant interest in her love life. "I'm so boring that I see him at least once a week just to hang out, and now it has, like, a patina of coolness to it—which I love," »

We Don't Know What's Going On Between Mindy and Matt, but We Like It

20 October 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Mindy Kaling shared a tender embrace with Matt Damon in La on Saturday, but it's probably not what you think it is. The two stars were spotted filming a scene together, which involved Mindy coming up to Matt at a restaurant and wrapping her arms around him. Details are scant on the purpose of the shoot, although there are reports that it is for a Super Bowl commercial. Mindy didn't drop any hints about her famous costar, although she did post a few Matt-less behind-the-scenes snaps on Instagram, calling it a "super top secret shoot for something cool." The pair's onscreen moment is particularly special for Mindy, who rose to fame in 2002 in an off-Broadway production called Matt & Ben, which followed the pair's prefame friendship. (Mindy cowrote the production and also starred as Ben.) »

These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy.

'NCIS: New Orleans' is staging a 'Quantum Leap' reunion

16 October 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NCIS: New Orleans” is staging a “Quantum Leap” reunion Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell will be reunited when Stockwell plays a retired cop who’s confronted about a murder from 40 years ago. Neil Patrick Harris: I don’t want to host an Oscars that is "super derivative of other shows that I’ve done" "I don’t want it to seem like I’m doing the same award hosting gig that I did on the Tonys, just now on a different stage,” he says. "And I think they don’t want that, either … It’s the biggest sandbox in the world. If you say, 'I think that I should do a thing with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.' Because it’s the Oscars, do they say yes? Because they would say no for the Tonys … I want to also just make sure that it’s a classy event. »

The Mindy Project: Season Three Ratings

15 October 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | 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.

10/15 update: You can see the rest of the latest night's ratings. »
