Ranking the Men of The Mindy Project

On last week's winter finale, The Mindy Project made our dreams come true when Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (finally!) kissed. While we wait until the comedy returns on April 1, we thought we'd look back and see how Danny stacks up to Mindy's past love interests. 

So check out our rankings below, from least dateable to the ultimate OTP.

How Mindy Project's Mindy Kaling Celebrates the Strength of Weak Female Characters

Strong female characters are rarely allowed to be nuanced on TV. They don't get to be brilliant, vain or funny. They get to be strong (and maybe sexy, if they're lucky). They kick a--, overcome obstacles and rarely display any signs of feminine vulnerability. Often times, their strength is framed as the result of some "issue," (SVU's Olivia Benson troubled childhood, Sonya Cross' Asperger's on The Bridge), as though the women are only strong because a catalyst forced them to be this way.

But Mindy Lahiri doesn't have issues (well, she has issues, but not in that sense). She's a strong, well-developed comedic antihero on par with  Michael Scott. But many Mindy Project viewers didn't warm to Mindy as quickly as they took to the equally offensive Office boss. "I think that [Mindy] is very resilient and very confident and until you see her display kindness or show rapport with other people, it's hard for an audience just to decide they love her," Mindy Kaling tells TVGuide.com, recalling the initial reaction to the character.

The Mindy Project's Ed Weeks on the Benefits of Wearing A Fat Suit

When we met the confident, caddish Jeremy in the pilot, he didn't quite fit in withThe Mindy Project's other flawed, quirky characters. Then he got fat and magic happened.

All of a sudden, Jeremy became a frazzled, insecure teddy bear we all wanted to hold and eat Cheetos with. "I have to say it's been a blast," Ed Weeks tells TVGuide.com. "I think him coming back from hiatus fat was a big catalyst for a lot of the changes. It sort of unlocked a way of playing him ... which I think is A. more comedic for me to play and B. I think its probably more relatable to the audience because we all have vulnerabilities and its nice when characters find flaws."

The Mindy Project: How Does Happy Endings' Adam Pally Fit In?

The Mindy Project went through so many cast shakeups in its first season, it felt like the ever-changing face of Degrassi. And on Tuesday (9:30/8:30c, Fox), we'll be introduced to yet another new series regular, Adam Pally. The Happy Endings alum plays Peter Prentiss, a fratty new doctor at Schulman & Associates who doesn't exactly make a good first impression on his co-workers.

"He's smart and a really good gynecologist. He actually takes his job really seriously," Pally tells TVGuide.com. "But... read more

The Mindy Project Is Finally Legitimately Awesome

Even the most die-hard Mindy Kaling fans had to acknowledge that The Mindy Project's first season had some flaws. And unfortunately, right when the show seemed to be finding its groove, the season was over. Now, The Mindy Project  is back for Season 2 and poised to be the great comedy we always wanted it to be.

The first season of the The Mindy Project suffered from a severe lack of focus. Torn between being a workplace comedy and a meta rom-com, The Mindy Project was a little all over the place. Certain episodes featured so many disjointed story lines that it felt stitched together like a comedy Frankenstein. But even amid the confusion, the show always had enough great jokes — delivered by some of Hollywood's hottest actors — to keep me watching.

She's not entirely kidding. She focused on her passion at to the expense of not having a busy social life. "I've dated more people on this season of the show than I've met men in my life," she added. "I never got distracted." read more

Watch My Show: The Mindy Project's Matt Warburton Answers Our Showrunner Survey

Like many new shows, Fox's The Mindy Project is still finding its voice and creative direction. The comedy recently dropped a couple of regulars as part of a slight retooling, but the central conceit hasn't changed: Mindy Kaling stars as an ob-gyn looking to balance love, life and career. Chris Messina and Ed Weeks costar as her colleagues and romantic foils, while Kaling's old Office flame B.J. Novak (a consultant on the series) will guest star in an upcoming episode.
