I’m Over You, Mindy Kaling

Spoiler alert for TMP’s pilot episode. I’m no television buff, but I’ll suffer a few boob-less hours in front of the “boob tube” if it’s worth it.

The Emmy Nominations were recently announced. As expected, the nominees are looking mighty pale. Among the shows nominated for outstanding comedy (30 Rock, Veep, Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and The Big Bang Theory), we only see four token people of color combined in their casts, and Don Cheadle and Sophia Vergara are the only non-passing […]
