"You’ve Got Sext" is not available on regular hulu or Fox.com. Some cable providers have it available for on demand but not all. This is such a great episode (one of Mindy Kaling’s and Chris Messina’s favorites) and I thought it only appropriate we rewatch it together!

If available through your cable provider, please try to watch on Fox on demand. Those views are counted by Fox.

In your tweets, remember to tag:

  • #themindyproject (Fox tracks this hashtag)
  • 
#renewmindy 
  • ”@foxtv” (without the quotes) - try to copy fox on as many of your tweets as possible, that way they see all the messages.
  • 
”@hulu” (without the quotes, if watching on hulu, but not necessary)
  • Shows official accounts if space allows:

@mindyprojectfox
@universaltv (production company)

  • 
Any of the cast members if space allows:

@mindykaling
@ikebarinholtz
@edwardweeks
 ”@adampally” (without the quotes)

@CBgrandy

@mrsalperez (costume designer) 

To maximize your tweets, great ideas from mindannyforever (I’ve added a few):

  • Include:

@JarettSays (buzzfeed, moderator at SAG and this year’s paley!)
@laurahertzfeld (she was on the Google hangout with Mindy, Entertainment Weekly) 
@JRadloff (Glamour)
@MichaelAusiello (TV Line)
@DeniseMartin (Vulture)  
@vulture or @tvline in your tweets since they are all supporters of the show.

  • Have this pretyped or already copy it so it’s easy to paste when tweeting (without the quotes):

“#themindyproject #renewmindy @foxtv”
This takes 35 characters. That leaves 105 characters for whatever you want to tweet, so you don’t have to guess if what you are typing is too long.

  • Tweet your little hearts out for the entire 30 minutes until you get put in Twitter jail.
  • You can send a maximum of 100 tweets/hour (including retweets) before Twitter locks you out for another 2 hours. This means, you can average 3 tweets/minute over the 30 minute viewing period without any trouble. This also gives you enough time to tweet during BOTH livetweeting sessions if you can. Yay!
  • Mix it up a little by including some other influential people (Oprah, anyone?) in your tweets to get their attention AND so people will pull up the Mindy tags when they look for other famous people.
  • Tweet the advertisers whose ads come up for the show while watching on Hulu, Fox On Demand, Fox.com or the Fox app to let them know we support Mindy. I’m also planning to include @jcrew in some tweets since a bunch of Mindy’s outfits in this episode were from there. People looking up J.Crew will stumble upon Mindy as a result.
  • We still have time to try to get the word out on other platforms, so those of you who frequent fan forum message boards outside tumblr, even at AV Club or E! Online (I’m looking at you, overanalyzingtelevision) let the fans there know too! Facebook page for TMP, anywhere you can get the word out before the rewatch.

VERY VERY IMPORTANT:

  • If you happen to see it trending (and most likely it will be a US trend) take a photo! We were able to get a photo from 2/11 because of @djcandywrapper on twitter and it made the world of difference! it gave us proof and I’m sure had a huge hand in getting a mention in that E! article! 
  • Trendsmap is also a great resource and how randomimprint was able to capture the city trends on 2/18


Here are the reasons why we should do it:

  1. We got #RenewMindy to trend on 2/11 in the United States.  NYC, Boston, and Chicago on 2/18. Chicago and LA on 2/22. Chicago on 2/25 and #TheMindyProject to trend in NY, Chicago, and LA on 2/25. We are just that awesome. The writers and cast favorited a whole bunch of tweets and they were really excited. Let’s show Fox, the cast and crew that this was not a fluke and we can keep it up. 
  2. E! online mentioned us in an article. Maybe if we keep trending we can have similar luck with BuzzFeed, Glamour, Vulture, or TVLine! 
  3. Experience You’ve Got Sext with the best motherfucking fandom on twitter (our first rewatch PROVED it) Seriously, it’s so much fun.
  4. Keep Fox aware of Mindy even as we wait for new episodes! Even if they are in the process of renewing it (great!) they will have an even stronger reason why. If they are wavering, we can show them that we are dedicated even when other shows can easily grab our attention means we are loyal and we will stick around. GUARANTEED viewership for season 3 even if we don’t have Nielsen boxes! International fans will show that syndication is desirable!

As always, you guys are AWESOME and reblog and share!

Hey guys. So I know campaign ideas have been bandied about to help the show and one thing to always keep in mind is that Fox sells Mindy merchandise.

If you are going to buy the DVD, if you get it through the Fox website they will have data directly about the viewership of the show. I know it is more expensive than other places, though. But those numbers probably go to Universal, not Fox.

They have accessories and clothes but I think what might make the most difference is buying things with the logo like the cell phone cases, totes, mugs, etc. Stuff that is identifiably Mindy. Not just a cute shirt or earring you saw, but something that says you are a dedicated fan to the show.

I personally love the t shirts that say “it’s so weird being my own role model”

They also have one that says “My warrior name is Beyoncé pad Thai!”
Who doesn’t want that?!

The rhinestone initial necklaces are so cute (I love Mindy’s M necklace) and would make great stocking stuffers. They are also affordable at only $15.

Why this a good idea:

1. Cool Mindy related stuff
2. Great gift ideas for fellow Mindy fans
3. Let’s Fox know about Mindy’s fandom
4. Fox sees it in actual dough (they are all about the $$$$)

July and August reads

As you all know, I’m not really good at posting reviews so this short summary (of sorts) of what I’ve read the last two months would have to suffice for now. I’ll try to do something about them later once I get work off my back. 

The Symptoms of My Insanity - Mindy Raf (1/5) : I started reading this way back January. It was interesting at first, but four chapters in and I started getting bored. By chapter eight, I was just about done with it. I pushed it back down my to-read pile. I finally managed to finish it last month. 

At its core, Symptoms is about a mother-daughter relationship. Izzy’s mom has cancer, and she’s the one taking care of her, all the while becoming a hyponchondriac herself. It’s something you can attribute to being the main caregiver to her mother. Then there are the subplots: the supposed love interest, Blake, best friend drama, and an unexpected love at the end. It would have been good if it was written in a balanced way, but this book tried to tackle too much at one time it lost its ground and veered off from its main storyline.

Pandemonium (Delirium series book 2) - Lauren Oliver (2.5/5) :I’ve been meaning to get this book since last year after finishing Delirium. What hindered me? Well, I can’t find the ‘right’ book, and when I say that I meant I can’t find a copy that matches the first one. There’s a mass market paperback version of this and for months that’s all I ever saw available in the bookstores I frequent. 

Lauren Oliver’s writing is as beautiful as ever, and Lena has grown in this book, but I’m iffy with love triangles, and that’s what turned me a bit off. Julian just came out of nowhere for me, and even though there was build up in the beginning of Pandemonium, it wasn’t enough. 

Four: A Divergent Collection (Divergent series book 0.1-0.4) - Veronica Roth (3/5) : If you know me personally, you’ve probably heard me gush over Tris and Tobias a million times already, that or you’ve heard me lament over Allegiant and all my coping mechanisms to try to forget it. (Shut up! Tris is alive in my head. If you say otherwise, keep it to yourself and let me live with what I want to remember, okay?) With that said, Four is a required reading for me.

Did it de-mystify Tobias’s character? Yes, a bit. If anything, Veronica Roth was able to give a good enough backstory on a need to know basis, and I’m fine with that. What made me give it a 3 and not a 4 or 5 (ratings I gave Divergent and Insurgent respectively) was the distinction between Tris’s and Tobias’s voice. Their voices were still too alike, a problem I had with Allegiant, though there were minor improvements. 

Still, it was fun reading about Tobias, and I won’t deny I smiled a whole lot when I got to The Traitor (and grinned like an idiot when I read the bonus content). I may have felt betrayed by the way Allegiant was written, but I’d still read Roth in the future. 

P.S. Get the hard copy of this. It has three deleted scenes from Divergent. Really, Tobias is so dorky sometimes. 

Saving Francesca - Melina Marchetta (5/5) : There’s just something about Melina Marchetta’s way of writing that gets me every time. I’ve read Jellicoe Road a year ago, and it convinced me to get every book she wrote. 

Marchetta writes teens convincingly: the way they speak, the issues they have to deal with and all that jazz, she gets it all. What I like most about her novels is the balance between family, friendship and romance. And, oh, she writes it in a very witty way, too, so it never gets boring. 

We Were Liars - E. Lockhart (5/5) : This one is truly heartbreaking. It’s a story about family and friendship and lost. Cady, as a protagonist, earned my sympathy and understanding.

I may not have many words for this book, but that’s more because I don’t think anything I say about it won’t give it enough justice. It’s a book one must read to understand why so many people love it.

I Am The Messenger - Markus Zusak (4/5) : I Am the Messenger may be Markus Zusak’s first novel, but it’s as good as the more widely known The Book Thief. It’s about Ed Kennedy, a cab driver and, as his mother would like to put it, a total lost cause. It’s funny, touching and absolutely hopeful. If you’ve read this, you might also have felt like Zusak was trolling you with the way it ended, but, hey, it’s a brilliant twist, and I love it.

Enders (Starters series book 2) - Lissa Price (4/5) : I’ve put off getting and reading this since I didn’t really like the first book much. Yes, the plot was really interesting, but the characters were lacking. I found Callie dull and Michael redundant. 

Book 2, though, was a whole league better than book 1. It’s fast-paced, and full of twists - some I expected, others not. It satisfied me in the excitement department. Really, if the fact that I finished it in one day is not proof enough, I don’t know what is.

Open Road Summer - Emery Lord (4/5) : This book is as much a book about Dee and Reagan’s friendship as it is about Reagan and Matt’s relationship. It rings true especially for people who’ve experienced having that one friend who picks him/her up after every fall and never gets tired of your shit. Seriously. Dee and Reagan’s friendship is so precious. It’s something you rarely see these days.

Also, if you are able to include these to help the E! Save one show campaign try to include:

Here are the reasons why we should do it:
1. We got #RenewMindy to trend on 2/11! Let’s show Fox, the cast and crew that this was not a fluke.

2. Experience DCIMPT with the best motherfucking fandom on twitter (our first rewatch PROVED it)

also social media really doesnt matter at all to fox, since they can't make money from it. mindy's saving grace rn is that fox as a network is doing horrendously at the moment, just like community on nbc back in 2011. it would also help if mindy got award recognition, if not at the emmys, then at least at the golden globes, because they care about that too.

I suggest you read this:
http://www.nielsen.com/content/corporate/us/en/press-room/2013/nielsen-launches-nielsen-twitter-tv-ratings.html

They can’t directly make money off of it but when social media does a lot of the promotion for them and encourages people to watch live with commercials (WHICH DOES MAKE THEM MONEY) it can absolutely have an impact. They’d be stupid not to count it in some way because that’s how shows build buzz now. It is probably not the only factor but certainly a factor in decision making.

Scandal was not a hit out of the gate but Twitter and social media made it must see TV. It also helped the show get on the radar of critics and awards.

It certainly cannot hurt to be active on social media and plus it’s fun. You are asking on tumblr after all.
