A couple of notes about these charts:
It was the booty call heard 'round the world. On the October 7 episode of The Mindy Project ("I Slipped"), Danny tried to get some action from his girlfriend Mindy’s back section, marking network comedy’s first attempt to talk about anal sex. “Well, I have to correct you there as I believe there was one pioneer before us who bravely tackled anal sex on broadcast TV, and that was an episode of Amen starring Sherman Hemsley,” Ike Barinholtz joked when Vulture sat down with the actor/writer/producer on the show’s L.A. set last Friday. “Actually, I don’t think it has ever been done before, probably with good reason. We’re proud to make history any way we can. In fact, we sent that episode straight to the Smithsonian. It will be running on a perpetual loop for eternity next to Archie Bunker’s chair.”“I »

Fans of The Mindy Project may have noticed that nurse Morgan Tookers has been looking slimmer in his scrubs. "I lost a couple ounces, yeah," Ike Barinholtz told People while promoting the show. "I did this movie [The Nest] with Tina [Fey] and Amy [Poehler] last summer, and I had to lose weight for it. I was real big, and the part was kind of a romantic part, and the director - in the Nicest way - was like, 'This is a character who recently lost some weight.' Draw your own conclusion." As for how he dropped the pounds, Barinholtz, 37, admitted he had »

Have “The Walking Dead” fans become numb to all the atrocities? "'The Walking Dead' has always lived in uncharted television territory, and you can’t say that viewers weren’t warned that this season was determined to go even further beyond Thunderdome,” says Jeff Labrecque, adding: "But is it too far? And is 'The Walking Dead' getting a free pass because its explicit depictions of violence are framed within a zombiefied landscape?” “The Real World" Season 30 is going with a "Skeletons” format The Chicago-set "Real World: Skeletons" will feature "skeletons" from the housemates’ past, who move in to "drum up secrets and dark memories.” “Gossip Girl’s” Penn Badgley will romance Mary-Louise Parker on NBC’s “The Slap” He’ll play her much-younger boyfriend on the NBC miniseries about a slap gone wrong.

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," »

"Scandal" appears to have moved past its dependence on cliffhangers “Scandal” was written around cliffhangers in its first three seasons, but the cliffhangers have now passed on to “How To Get Away with Murder.” As Joshua Alston says of “Scandal,” "It’s no longer a political thriller with heavy-to-a-fault spy genre flourishes, it’s 'Grey’s Anatomy' in the White House. And if that’s indeed what the writers are going for, the absence of a central, hashtag-friendly mystery makes perfect sense. I’ve been suspiciously anticipating this direction, but I’m far less worried than I was. If 'Like Father, Like Daughter' is any indication, that version of Scandal would be well-worth watching, if perhaps not the Twitter fuel it once was.” Plus: “Scandal” Secret Service agent talks about his big role. Leah Remini will sub for Erin Andrews as “Dancing with the Stars' co-host Andrews is »

Well, we didn't see this one coming. And NBC is the first network to cancel one of its new series this fall season, but there's a twist: the show hasn't even premiered yet. Mission Control, a sitcom set in the '60s starring Krysten Ritter as an astronaut, has been canceled by the network, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Set to debut at midseason, Will Ferrell served as one of Mission Control's executive producers, along with Adam McKay, and The Mindy Project's Tommy Dewey co-starred. So why was Mission Control scrapped so early? According to THR, recasting issues are to blame for the series' early exit. However, another show was also canceled before it aired: Fox decided »
