After making her return for "The Office" finale, Mindy Kaling was on "Late Night." There, she talked about how much she loves the HBO series "Game of Thrones." Somehow, though, as fans of her show "The Mindy Project" know, Kaling manages to turn everything into a romantic comedy. In this case, she worked her rom-com magic on an amputation.
"On my show, all the writers -- everyone loves it," she said. "This season, this gorgeous guy, Jamie Lannister, lost his hand. And I actually thought that made him hotter -- I felt now he’s imperfect and I might have a chance with him.”
When Fallon had Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaimie Lannister, on "Late Night," Fallon had him hold up a picture of Kaling. Fallon then Tweeted the pic to Kaling, who said that it made her day. In the picture, though, he clearly had two hands. Does that »

The Big Four hear the footsteps of cable and have responded with an especially aggressive programming strategy for next season.
They’re trying to capture the buzz that pay-tv has generated with high-concept dramas and shorter-order series by investing in event television of their own. And they have loaded up on the one genre that cable has been unable to master: comedy.
The two-pronged approach was evident as each network — even traditional CBS — laid out their fall lineups last weeks.
ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox will air a whopping 13 new comedies in the fall, the most of any year in at least a decade. Of course, a big reason why is that only two of the 10 laffers to bow last fall are coming back — and neither Fox’s “The Mindy Project” nor ABC’s “The Neighbors” is what you’d call a hit.
But with projects starring Michael J. Fox, »

Update: After bashing this year's Met Gala immediately following the event, asserting that she didn't enjoy it and had no future plans of attending, Paltrow is now praising the event via a post to her goop page.
In the post, the Iron Man 3 actress writes:
"The Met Ball, at NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year's most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different. The theme was 'Punk: Chaos to Couture' and when the house of Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri asked me to join them, I was thrilled to see what they would create with my right fashion hand, Elizabeth Saltzman."
Gwyneth Paltrow may have appeared happy as she posed for photos on the red carpet of Monday's Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but she was apparently quite the opposite.
The 40-year-old actress was quoted by USA Today admitting that she »
Update 5/16: With everyone's schedules announced, only a handful of shows are still in limbo.
Update 5/13: A few more shows, including "The Cleveland Show" but not "Hannibal" (at least not yet), have their futures decided.

Update 5/8: Latest news reflected below.
In just two weeks, the broadcast networks (and a few cable channels) will announce their lineups for the 2013-14 season. We'll get our first looks at new shows for next season then, along with schedules for the fall and beyond.
Before the upfronts start, though, it's helpful to know -- which series the networks have already picked up for next season. In some cases -- particularly at CBS and at Fox -- there won't be »
The lineups are set, the new shows are ordered and the broadcast networks are starting to gear up for another season.
Here's your first look at how the networks will stack up against one another in the fall. For the most part, the biggest shows -- like "The Big Bang Theory," "The Voice" and "Modern Family" -- are staying in their familiar timeslots, but the nets have done a good amount of timeslot shuffling with returning series and added more than 20 new shows to the mix as well -- including Fox's "Almost Human," pictured above.
It's never too early to start planning your DVR strategy for the fall. This should help. Take a look at the prime-time grid for ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW in fall 2013 (roll your mouse over a day to see that night's schedule).

The new fall CBS comedy, from executive producer David E. Kelly, boasts two of the 2013-14 season's most impressive casting achievements in the form of Williams, returning to series TV for the first time since "Mork and Mindy," and Sarah Michelle Gellar, giving comedy a try after her first attempt at a post-"Buffy" comeback, The CW's "Ringer," proved a flop.
"The Crazy Ones," one of CBS' forays into the world of single-camera comedies this fall, centers around the father-daughter duo of Simon Roberts (Williams) and Sydney (Gellar). Simon, the head of a powerful advertising agency, is unorthodox, unpredictable, larger-than-life ... basically, he's Robin Williams. Sydney is his exact opposite, often finding herself playing the parent in the relationship. The cast is rounded »

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 »

When we first saw Mindy Kaling at the Fox upfronts, we knew one thing for certain: She definitely drove there in a convertible. Now, we can't decide if her braid started out that messy or perhaps she got stuck in traffic and tangled it up out of frustration, but, either way, we love it! The messy braid is so in right now. And the best part is that it doesn't matter if you have layers like Mindy or not—if your hair is long enough to braid, it works! It also doesn't hurt that The Mindy Project star obviously keeps those shiny locks in shape with regular conditioning and care. We're also having a love fest over her eye makeup. Meow, Mindy! This girl can rock an edgy cat eye. She's purrfected »

The season finale of "NCIS" Tuesday delivered the show's biggest total audience since mid-March and led CBS to a convincing win in total viewers for the night.

There were a lot of moves on television last night and not just the five finales inprimetime. So You Think You Can Dance (1.9/6) was back for a 10th season with a first-time May sweep debut. Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy were joined by guest judge Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family as La hopefuls auditioned and angled for a ticket to Las Vegas. The premiere stumbled 14% from last season’s debut on April 24, 2012 but was up 19% from Season 9’s finale on September 18. The other dance show of the night, ABC’s Dancing With The Stars (1.8/5), was up 6% from its results show from last week and was the third-most-watched show of the night with 11.59 million viewers. Back on Fox, the season finales of comedies New Girl (2.1/6) and The Mindy Project (1.3/4) followed. The second-season ender of the Zooey Deschanel starrer was even with its May 7 show but down 25% from its May 8, 2012 Season 1 finale. »

Skype sex is not easy, and neither is commitment. But sometimes you just have to say yes. Or do you? As Casey and Mindy practiced their long-distance sex talk, perhaps it was symbolic that things quickly disintegrated until they were talking about her “indecisive boobs” — neither A cups nor B cups. Casey’s version of dirty talk soon became, “A, A, A, tryin’ to be a B, tryin’ to be a B,” before he froze, and Morgan dropped in on their chat session. Things were obviously not headed in the right direction.The Mindy Project, on the other hand, definitely is headed in the right direction as it wraps up its first season. It didn’t always seem sure of itself, but there is now a solid vision behind it and the show has coalesced into a unique hybrid of workplace and romantic comedy. Sure, it still has a few »
