Shonda Rhimes might literally be taking over the world – or at least the world of television. While she already has Thursday night taken care of with Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and new series How to Get Away With Murder premiering September 25 on ABC, she will also be heading over to Tuesday for a brief stint on The Mindy Project, E! News has confirmed. Of course, since Shonda Rhimes is involved, there aren't a lot of details to be had, but as TV Line first reported, we do know she will be playing herself and the episode will air later this fall. How Rhimes finds time – with three shows about to be on the air – to guest star on other shows, we may never know. Rhimes is a »

The exec producer of ABC's Thursday-night lineup — Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and rookie How to Get Away With Murder — will guest-star on a season-three episode of Fox's The Mindy Project, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. As first reported by TV Line, Rhimes will make her acting debut in a fall episode of the Mindy Kaling comedy.

The casting continues Rhimes' hot streak. In July, she hosted a fundraiser for President Obama; then in May,

You don’t have to go to The Louvre or The Guggenheim to see incredible art — at least not from May to August. And at least not as long as Fox doesn’t enter the 2015 Emmy race for Outstanding Boneheadedness in Scheduling by pulling the plug on the life-affirming, visually thrilling and utterly sublime So You Think You Can Dance.
Among other things, tonight’s Season 11 performance finale allowed a pair of gorgeous contemporary dancers to sprout wings, take flight and possibly/maybe save some lives in the »

Many of Fox's series have already been renewed for another season. What does the future hold for the rest of their TV shows? Cancelled or renewed for 2014-15? We'll have to wait and see.
How does Fox decide what to cancel or renew? 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. Here's how the network's shows are doing so far: »
Glee is saying “bye bye” to the Big Apple as it heads into its sixth and final season, with Rachel and the gang returning to the hallowed halls they once called home — after a six-month time jump, of course.
Fox on Wednesday released an avalanche of Season 6 spoilers, and TVLine is breaking it all down into easy-to-digest (and difficult-to-believe) bites:
* Rachel, following her “humiliating failure as a TV actress” will return to Lima and “reinstate and lead” the glee club. (Rumor has it Kurt will follow Miz Berry back home, »
No matter how good he looks in light-wash jeans, Jamie Dornan is more than just the man behind Christian Grey. The Fifty Shades actor is set to star in The 9th Life of Louis Drax, a new psychological thriller from Miramax that also has Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) in the director’s chair.
The 9th Life of Louis Drax, penned by first-time screenwriter Max Minghella (you may know him from acting turns on The Mindy Project and The Internship), tells the story of Louis Drax—beginning on the character’s 9th birthday, when, according to a press release, »

NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” was the dominant program in Tuesday’s ratings race, matching its August high and carrying the net to an easy victory in key demos.
The Peacock opened with “Food Fighters” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 4.7 million viewers overall), which was up a tenth for a three-week demo high. And from 9 to 11 p.m., the net swept all categories with “America’s Got Talent” (2.1/7 in 18-49, 9.4 million viewers overall), which was up 5% from last week’s national average and 11% above its prelim score (1.9). “Talent” hasn’t done a higher 18-49 rating since a July 29 installment earned a 2.4.
At ABC, a special two-hour episode of Monday reality series “Bachelor in Paradise” (1.3/5 in 18-49, 4.8 million viewers overall) outperformed in the demo every episode of “Extreme Weight Loss” to air in the 8-10 p.m. time period since its May 27 premiere; it also bested every “Weight Loss” in total viewers.

One of the standout moments from this year’s Emmys was undeniably the taped segment in which comedian Billy Eichner and host Seth Meyers ran around the streets of New York quizzing (or simply yelling at) people about the awards. And it wouldn’t have happened if Eichner had not decided to send a “ballsy” (his word) email to Meyers’ producer, Mike Shoemaker.But thanks to Eichner’s initiative, the evening had a refreshing dose of absurdity. In the segment, which mimicked the structure of the recurring games on Eichner’s Billy on the Street, Eichner called out the Academy’s snubbing of Tatiana Maslany, »

Someone needs to tell Aquaman it’s not the size of the wave that matters, it’s the motion in the ocean — but will that person be Jess?
We’ll find out this fall when Smallville alum-turned-Blue Mountain State jock Alan Ritchson guest stars on New Girl as a good looking guy that Jess meets at the bar. The twist? Dude proves to have some, ahem, shortcomings below the belt. (Psst. He’s got a tiny penis.)

Hosting a major awards show is a thankless task. Just ask David Letterman and Seth MacFarlane. (Don’t even bother asking James Franco.) Seth Meyers, who won almost unanimous praise for hosting the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in 2011, received mixed reviews in his first stint as Emmy host Monday night, with his hometown tabloid detractors pointing to a perception of passiveness that yielded the stage to other, more dynamic performers. But perhaps he should be commended for sharing the spotlight so generously, letting others shine, and keeping the three-hour show moving. Nothing wrong with getting by with a little help from one’s friends, »

Never again, TV Academy. Never again. I don't care if NBC has to do the Emmys in August because of football and if NBC is scared of going head-to-head with a competing award show. Doing the Emmys on Monday is just wrong. But we shall trudge on! Seth Meyers is hosting. Some fantastic TV shows and actors are nominated. Follow along. Comment below. Join the fun. Make the fun. 8:00 p.m. Et. That was some of the worst Red Carpet pre-show I've ever watched between E! and NBC. I never thought I'd miss Ryan Seacrest, but there ya go! 8:00 p.m. Seth Meyers was just outside being interviewed by Billy Bush just two minutes ago. How will he make it inside? How?!?!? 8:00 p.m. A countdown! 20 seconds to go. 8:00 p.m. And now Seth is inside on-stage. How Is That Possible, Billy Bush?!? 8:01 p.m. »

We thought The Mindy Project was perfect. But we didn't know what we were missing...until now. Niecy Nash has just joined The Mindy Project and her role is so amazing, that we can't believe it's actually real. But it is! E!
