The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

The Mindy Project is a great show, and I would hate to see it get cancelled especially considering how it was left, I personally hate when shows get cancelled at the awkwardest times… It’s so Funny!

This show is laugh out loud funny, even my fishinglogginggolddigging tv show obsessed/pessimistic/anti-pop culture fiance thinks so too. Now that is saying something.

I love this show, and it’s getting better! Morgan asking if the parakeets could dress him like in a Disney cartoon made us guffaw!

I’m a big fan of sitcoms (I’m really sick of all those reality shows and cop dramas)…but this show isn’t funny at all. I hope FOX cancels it and brings some funny new sitcoms next season.

After suffering through the first 3 or 4 episodes, I’m surprised that this show is still on… maybe I’m not drinking enough?

i think you should give it another chance because while the first few episodes were a little rocky, the show has really come into it’s own.

I LOVE MINDY! I dont really watch sitcoms, but this is my absolute fav show! Please let it continue on! It’s great to see a woman, who isnt perfect and does normal things! She is SO FUNNY! I cant wait to see her and Danny get together, as the story progesses! FOX, please let this happen!

This show is funnier each week! It is refreshing to have a real woman represented. Mindy seems so real, so not Hollywood.

This show gets better every week! I read her book well before this show started. She seems down to earth, someone fun to hang out with.
