“Don’t you just find Mindy Kaling, like, really annoying, though?” and other things I find, like, really annoying.

First of all, let’s just start this post by reminding everyone that The Mindy Project is my favorite new comedy of the season, and that I love Mindy Kaling more than I love a lot of things. I know that she is vaguely unpopular on the Internet, for reasons that are valid and reasons that are subjective, but when I ask people why they don’t like her, the general response is that she’s “annoying” or “talks about herself too much.” Now, I don’t know Mindy Kaling personally, but–wait a second, I’m pretty sure that neither do you.

Recap: 30 Rock 6×01 & 6×02 – Dance Like Nobody’s Watching & Idiots Are People Two!

I don’t know if I was more excited for the return of Liz Lemon, or to see the return of John McEnroe and D’Fwan on the show as judges on America’s Kidz Got Singing!

The Weekly Night Owl: Jan. 9 – 13

Go to bed early?  Don’t worry–each week I’ll share the highlights of my two favorite late night talk shows, Conan and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Conan Tim Tebow was a big topic this week (as always, these days), and on Monday’s show Conan’s Peanut Players gave us a reenactment of Sunday night’s game. With the […]
