FOX Cancels 'The Mindy Project'... Is There Hope At Hulu?
The Mindy Project is off the air, for now.

Fox canceled Mindy Kaling's romantic comedy due to low ratings. The show does have a cult audience of passionate fans, but the numbers weren't high enough for the executives at Fox.

Sources are saying that the show's producer, Universal Televsion, is currently in talks with Hulu for additional seasons. That move would make sense, as Hulu already owns the rights for the show's previous three seasons.

It was Hulu...

5 TV Shows You Should Binge Watch This Summer
Popcorn films once ruled the summer entertainment season. Now, TV is king. Every TV viewer, from the casual ones to the fanatics, easily finds shows that appeal to their binge-watching appetite among the ratings kings, or the ones critics obsess over.

Thankfully, John Lehr is bringing the concept back with his new Hulu series Quick Draw, a comedic Western where all the dialogue is made up and the stories are intermixed with real history. BFTV talked with John last week to find out what the heck he was thinking, and if he's still recognized for being one of the infamous GEICO Cavemen.

"My partner Nancy Hower, who I created the show with and she directs all the episodes, we had been wanti...
