NBC blames "equipment failure" for blackout during Super Bowl
“We had a brief equipment failure that we quickly resolved. No game action or commercial time were missed," an NBC spookesperson said of the black screen that led to some people joking that NBC was paying tribute to The Sopranos finale in the middle of the game. Brands like Tide quickly capitalized on the blackout. “Clean clothes are still clean in the dark. If it's clean, it's a #TideAd,” the laundry detergent brand tweeted.

Vice Principals exits as possibly the quintessential dark comedy of our times
“What this show managed to do across 18 episodes,” says Kyle Fowle, “is not only tell a compelling, ludicrous story about how pursuing power for the sake of it is a morally empty thing to do, but also ask us to look in the mirror and examine our cruelty, our own ability to throw others under the bus if it means we get something in return. In its own weird way, Vice Principals is a map for navigating the messiness of human nature and the feeling that we’re all growing increasingly divided from one another. In essence, a show that understands that while nobody’s perfect, if you’re working towards being somebody better, you’re on the right track.”

Vice Principals returns for its “second semester”
The HBO comedy was always designed to run two seasons, with each season like a semster. “These guys embarked on this devious, reprehensible quest in the first season, and they achieved what they set out to do,” says Danny McBride. “The second season is about them getting what they asked for and how that plays out for both of them. We said it’s like Crime and Punishment. The first season is the crime and the second season is the punishment.”

Mindy Kaling wants her Mindy Project legacy to be creating the female version of TV’s “bad men”
Asked about her legacy, Kaling tells the NY Times: “I try not to think about legacy too much because it can steer me awry while I’m still making the thing I’m making. What’s really wonderful and fun about the show is that I took all the men that I saw in sitcoms that I loved, whether it’s Ricky Gervais or Danny McBride or Steve Carell, and said, ‘I want to be one of the bad men — the ones that are the destructors, the ones that are flawed. I don’t want to be the sweet wife.’ And yeah, if that can be the legacy, and I had really funny jokes and said crazy things that women had not said before, then that’s really nice.” PLUS: Watch the final season Mindy Project trailer
