Watch the First Episode of Mindy Kaling’s New Show


If you have plans for tonight, you might want to cancel them — or at least push things back by a half hour. Even though the official premiere date isn’t until September 25th, Fox just made the pilot episode of Mindy Kaling’s new comedy, The Mindy Project, available for online streaming on Hulu, and if you’re like us, then you’ve been dying to find out how the charming comedian fares at the helm of her own series. It has to be great, right? This is the woman who broke into the industry by playing Ben Affleck in an off-Broadway show. This is the woman who made us fall in love with Kelly Kapoor. This is the woman who wrote one of our favorite funny lady memoirs (and definitely the one with best title). We’ve got such high expectations, that we’re almost afraid to watch. Almost — but we will persevere! Enjoy, and be sure to let us know what you think of the episode in the comments.
