How do the execs decide what to cancel or keep? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play a very large role. The higher the ratings, the better chances a show has of surviving.

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars
The Performer | Andrew Lincoln
The Show | The Walking Dead
The Episode | “Try” (March 22, 2015)
The Performance | We always knew that Lincoln could play the living daylights out of anything that was thrown at him. But until this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, we didn’t realize that he could act his way from A to Z all within the span of a single hour.
Talk about a revelation! Early on in “Try,” the native of London revealed his character’s sweet, sensitive side during his interaction with (forbidden) love interest Jessie. »

As television shows have grown in critical and commercial success over the years, interest in what goes on behind the scenes has also grown. The evolution of television and the current landscape allows for a particularly fascinating look at the creative process that brings a show to fruition and shapes it as it’s on the air. Behind the Story with the Paley Center promises to do just that, and now SundanceTV has announced that the series will make its premiere on April 7th, at 8 pm Et.
Curated from footage shot from the 2013 and 2014 incarnations of PaleyFest, an annual television convention held by the Paley Center for Media, the show will sit down with performers and crew members to discuss the process behind bringing popular shows to the air. SundanceTV President Sarah Barnett had this to say:
These dynamic conversations are full of the same energy and creative passion that »

The Tuesday TV ratings for March 24th are in; here are some of the highlights: CBS won the night in the key 18-49 demographic and with viewers overall thanks to NCIS at 8 p.m., which notched a 2.2 rating and 16.01 million viewers, as well as NCIS: New Orleans at 9 p.m. (1.9 and 14.25 million viewers).

The night was tough for the network since Forever was also down to a series low »

Tuesday night's Mindy Project finale, with its grand romantic gesture, left us wondering if this could perhaps be the end. (Say it ain't so!) Not only that, but Mindy stars are already off doing other things — take Chris Messina, who is making his directorial debut with Alex of Venice (in theaters and VOD on April 17), a sweet indie drama that stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a young working mom whose family is thrown for a loop after her husband (played by Messina) decides to leave. We spoke to Messina about doing triple duty, being a first-time director, and the future of The Mindy Project. You’re out in L.A., right?I’m in L.A., where it’s very sunny. Sorry. It’s always nice there. While I was watching Alex of Venice, I kept dreaming of Venice, California. It’s so kooky and great. Yeah, it’s a great place. »

Community, Cristela, CSI, The Following, and Looking, which was canceled just one day after voting ended. (Fortunately, HBO is giving us a special to wrap things up/properly mourn.) But still: the power of Save One Show is real, y'all! But you still have the chance to rescue one of the 10 remaining shows from cancellation. The contenders are Agent Carter, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Constantine, Forever, Hart of Dixie, Hawaii Five-0, The Mindy Project, Nashville, Revenge and »
The Mindy Project capped off its very strong third season last night with a fantastic finale (check out my colleague Jen’s review of the episode right here) that, once again, illustrated how much Danny and Mindy love each other but also showed the very real differences between the two of them, types of differences that could have potentially led to a break-up for one of TV’s best couples. Fortunately, Mindy Kaling is a great writer that not only loves and understands the basic format of the romantic comedy but also knows these two characters better than anybody else, so when Danny told Mindy he was going to Austin for Peter’s wedding, only to really fly to India to meet her parents, his actions felt real and honest, despite how grand and cinematic they actually were. It’s that perfect blend of real life emotion and romantic fantasy that makes The Mindy… »

As midseason replacements and limited event series continue to populate the primetime lineup, last night saw an ending of sorts. With a pregnancy and a declaration of love, The Mindy Project (0.8/3) wrapped up its third season. There has been no announcement of a Season 4 for the Mindy Kaling-created and starring series from Fox but this finale certainly took a tumble among adults 18-49. In preliminary numbers, the 9:30 Pm sitcom hit a series low last night. Year-to-year… »

CBS edged a down NBC to finish first in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic; America’s most-watched network also topped total viewers on Tuesday. NBC’s entire lineup dropped by double-digits week-over-week, netting in a 23 percent slide. That said, the lower-rated “Night Shift” took “Chicago Fire’s” normal slot last night, and the network had two premieres during the prior Tuesday’s primetime. Sixth-place CW had a dramatic fall from last week, when the network rose to second in the key demo. Also of note, fifth-place Fox’s “The Mindy Project” hit a new low.

Today's TV-anxiety vibes come from the fear that last night's Mindy Project season finale will wind up being the show's series finale. The ratings are not good enough to guarantee renewal, and we all know life is fundamentally just suffering; a fourth season is merely a maybe at this point. If this is it for Mindy, I will be crushed. Not just because I love the show, and not just because the character of Mindy Lahiri has the wardrobe I most aspire to of any character who has ever been on television ever. The Mindy Project is a rom-com. And this is not how a rom-com ends.Rom-coms end with kissing, and credits set to "This Will Be (an Everlasting Love)." How can this show end before Rita Wilson guest-stars in some capacity? I like the idea of Danny's grand gesture, but not as much as I like the idea »

Bubble comedy The Mindy Project closed Season 3 on Tuesday night with 2.1 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating (again leading out of an old New Girl), dipping a tenth in the demo to a new series low.

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, March 24, 2015. "NCIS" and "NCIS: New Orleans" led CBS' overall primetime rout, while "Person of Interest" toppled a special "Night Shift" to help CBS score a slim Tuesday win among young viewers as well. "NCIS: New Orleans" was up over its last airing and "Person of Interest" added viewers. Most of Tuesday's non-cbs offerings were down, including "The Flash," "iZombie" and "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." NBC's "The Voice" took a dip and the 9 p.m. comedy block of "Undateable" and "One Big Happy" fell accordingly. One of the few shows to at least stay flat was Fox's "Hell's Kitchen," but even the season finale of "The Mindy Project" was down a hair from an already low point. Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.8 rating for Tuesday night, edging out ABC's 1.7 rating in the key demographic. ABC's »

The world needs more Danny and Mindy like the world needs oxygen and water. Period. This was never more clear than after last night's incredibly crafted The Mindy Project finale, in which not only did Danny Castellano introduce the world to #DannyScruff (quick, everyone hide Chris Messina's razor til the end of time), but one of Mindy Kaling's trademark amazing grand gestures: Danny flew all the way to India to prove he loved her. So what are Mindy's chances of a season four at Fox? Precisely…50/50, according to multiple insiders. The show's ratings have never been anything to write home about, sadly, but the critical praise and sincere love among Fox's top brass »
Sundance TV will launch “Behind the Story With the Paley Center,” a six-episode series that features in-depth discussions with the stars, writers and producers of some of TV’s most interesting programs. The series will launch Tuesday, April 7, at 8 p.m.
The episodes utilize footage from the Paley Center for Media’s PaleyFest 2013 and PaleyFest 2014 television festivals, and give viewers the chance to hear personal stories from cast members and creative teams.
“These dynamic conversations are full of the same energy and creative passion that fuel the most exciting television today,” said SundanceTV president Sarah Barnett, in a prepared statement. “We are very happy to partner with the Paley Center for Media to bring viewers an uncensored look into the minds of the best showrunners and actors at work in TV.”

A quick review of last night's "The Mindy Project" season finale coming up just as soon as the needle goes around a second time... All signs seem to be pointing toward "Best Man" being the last new "Mindy" episode on Fox. The question is if some other outlet (Netflix? Hulu? NBC, whose sister studio produces it?) wants to pick it up, banking on the small audience being a loyal one, or if "Hi, I'm Danny Castellano, and I'm in love with your daughter" was the show's final moment. If that was it for "Mindy," I'll be disappointed. The show never really figured out what to do with the many different iterations of its supporting cast(*), but the dialogue's sharp and funny, and that central relationship has remained one of the best, most interesting opposites-attract pairings in recent memory. "Best Man" did a nice job of balancing the comical aspects of »
