The Mindy Project could easily have been cancelled last season due to low ratings. Will FOX be glad that they renewed it for a second season? Will the ratings improve? We’ll have to wait and see.
The Mindy Project follows the life of a young obstetrician/gynecologist (Mindy Kaling) who tries her best to figure out both her personal and professional lives. Her co-workers are played by Chris Messina, Ed Weeks, Ike Barinholtz, Zoe Jarman, Beth Grant, and Xosha Roquemore.
