Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

LOVE THIS SHOW! It’s hilarious and fun. Mindy is fabulous and adorable and a total clutz, which you can’t help but love. My husband agrees the show is very funny and actually watches it with me, which is saying something – usually never strays from Parks & Rec, Mad Men, or Wicked Tuna. You hit it out of the park Mindy! Hope the show continues on for many seasons to come!

Seriously. This show is awful and painfully unfunny. It is a shame to renew it while really good, well-written shows that are FUNNY get cancelled so early on. I personally think Mindy Kaling is so uncomfortable to watch and the bar is set so low. It is dumbed down and lowest common denominator humor. I am sure it will be cancelled soon.

@ Valerie….enough with the pseudo-elitism. Sometimes comedy just has to be taken at face value…we’re not tuning in to have epiphanies or experience any life catharses. Why so serious? lol
