1. Mindy Kaling is the creator and star of “The Mindy Project" which starts its second season Tuesday September 17th on Fox.
The season ended with Mindy getting engaged to Casey (played by Anders Holm, right) while doing philanthropic work in Haiti. She returns to her OB-GYN practice and meets the doctor (James Franco) that filled in while she was away.
When Mindy spoke to Terry Gross she talked about how she wanted to approach her job as show-runner:

One thing my mom and dad raised me believing is that everyone is busy, so it’s not really a good conversation topic to talk about how busy you are. And it’s a little narcissistic, in fact, to talk about that, because everyone is stressed out no matter what job you’re in. Nobody is like, ‘Yeah, I’m doing really well — work is just a total snooze and so easy.’
So when I got this job, I thought, ‘I’m going to be that person who is the star of their own show and the show-runner and the head writer, et cetera, et cetera — but I’m going to always seem like it’s no big deal.’ And I was actually able to do that for the first six weeks. And now, I have to say, it’s a little hard to pretend that I’m just like this cool-as-a-cucumber person.

  1. It’s one thing if you say, ‘We need to tone things down’ or ‘It just doesn’t make a lot of sense for you to be devoting this much time to covering this story, or this enterprise, or this political operation.’ … (I always viewed FOX News as a political operation and not a journalistic operation.) Those things are negotiable and that’s part of the give and take of commercial broadcasting and commercial journalism. When it gets larger than that, it becomes a question of: ‘Where does this proceed?’
