The Mindy Project began with a wedding, and it’s ending with one, too

Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Tuesday, November 14. All times are Eastern.

The Mindy Project (Hulu): After 117 episodes, six seasons, one network cancellation, and one streaming revival, Dr. Mindy Lahiri has reached the end of her television journey. In a fine example of proper finale tension, the series ends with the fate of Mindy’s fertility practice, and romantic life, hanging in the balance; in a nice full-circle moment, Morgan and Tamra’s nuptials call back to when we first met Mindy, attending a wedding reception that does not end well. (For her, personally. Comedy-wise, it goes great.) Join Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya as she toasts The Mindy Project one last time.

Regular coverage

The Flash (The CW, 8 p.m.)
DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow (The CW, 9 p.m.)
This Is Us (NBC, 9 p.m.)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Fox, 9:30 p.m.)
American Horror Story (season finale) (FX, 10 p.m.)


Wild card

Future Man (Hulu): While The Mindy Project evokes memories of the past, Hulu’s newest show looks to a future that’s barely worth looking forward to, assuming its eponymous hero fails in his mission to save mankind’s tomorrow, today. Josh Hutcherson stars as the average Joe recruited, Last Starfighter-style, to join a fight much bigger than his favorite video game. Through the time-bending properties of the internet, Alex McLevy has seen what’s in store for Future Man; in recaps, Eric Thurm will take the Seth Rogen- and Evan Goldberg-produced sci-fi comedy one day at a time.
