Prime Time is Now Brown Time.

*Update* How could I forget? This isn't a complete listing of desis on Amrikan tv without the inclusion of Kunal Nayyar who plays genius physicist on The Big Bang Theory. My apologies for the omission! With the debut of the new fall lineup this side of the Pond, we see for the first time an absolute proliferation of desippearances. I mean, it's been real these last couple of years with funnyman Aziz Ansari on Parks and Recreation, the lovely Emmy-winning Archie Panjabi on The Good Wife, Maulik Pancholy as the smarmy butt-kisser on 30 Rock, and of course the ever-quirky Danny Pudi on Community. Oh and don't worry, Aasif Mandvi, I certainly didn't forget your informed news reporting for The Daily Show. Adriane over at MTV Iggy has an insightful report on the newest kids on the primetime block: Nirvana, The Kumars, and Outsourced and what she calls the "Slumdog Effect". I haven't caught any of these yet (though I've seen plenty of promos for Outsourced and I have to wonder how those writers will come up with enough material for an entire season), but let's see how they do!

She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…
