As fans of "The Mindy Project" might have noticed, this week's episode rendered Stephen Tobolowsky's character, Dr. Shulman, somewhat obsolete -- effectively removing him from the show by way of a retirement note. According to HitFix, Tobolowsky is officially exiting the show, and the actor shared his side of the story with the site via email.

"I wasn't in the Thanksgiving show. That was a bad sign. I was told that they wanted Dr. Shulman to be more of an authoritarian. Then I was told that they didn't really want Mindy to have a boss in the office. Then Mindy told me I was being written out of the show," Tobolowsky told Hitfix. "I don't think anything untoward happened. I suspect I was a casualty of a show meeting many different demands from different sources. The people involved were very talented. I hope they succeed."
