UPDATE: Due to a schedule change, only the first episode originally scheduled for Jan. 29 will air on that date; the Valentine’s Day episode will air another day.

The pics below are from the first of two episodes to air on Jan. 29. At 8:30/7:30c, Mindy thinks Novak’s Jaime is absolutely amazing… until she learns he’s a little too close to his female best friend (played by Californication‘s Eva Amurri Martino). In the second episode of the evening (at 9:30), Ms. Lahiri attempts to fix the situation by setting Jaime’s galpal up with Danny on Valentine’s Day.

Take a peek at the photos below, then hit the comments: Are you looking forward to seeing Kaling and Novak together again on screen?

    I am embarassingly really excited for this. Love these two together! It’ll be really interesting to see BJ play a different kind of role against Mindy, especially since the two of them wrote these two episodes!

    I wanted to like Novak in The Office because of what I knew he was doing behind the scenes, but on camera he was such a slimy jerk! I hope he turns out to be a likable guy in Mindy. He needs to have a ‘good dude’ part.

  3. Teag says:

    Knew he’d guest star as a love interest for Mindy. I think they secretly love each other in real life.

  4. Nancy says:

    I can’t wait for this.

    Hands down the worst new Comedy this season. Not a single redeeming quality about it. Sad considering how awful The New Normal is.

      Hands down the worst comment of the season, nothing redeeming about it at all.

    • Bella says:

      Why come to the post if you are just going to be negative? If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all!

    • Brian Kent says:

      On the contrary, one of the best new shows if not all of comedy. She has the “That Girl”, Mary Richards quality that has been missing the last decade or so!

  6. dude says:

    She always looks so awesome on this show. The hair/make-up and wardrobe departments are seriously earning their pay.

  7. Mitholas says:

    This is the funniest new comedy this year. Still finding its footing, but it consistently makes me laugh.

  8. Wendy says:

    Please don’t cancel this show! We just discovered it and it’s one of the few shows that my husband and I like together!

  9. Leslie says:

    This show is laugh out loud funny. I just learned of The Mindy Project and am trying to catch up via rentals. Please give this show a chance to find its audience!
