Alert: Mindy Kaling's new show will be online August 27

Mindy Kaling's new sitcom The Mindy Project (along with another new Fox sitcom, Ben and Kate, which is not about the wacky hijinx that ensued between Ben Affleck and Kate Beckingsale on the set of the 2001 movie Pearl Harbor) will be premiering online before the fall season officially starts, because who needs patience when Mindy Kaling has her own show now? The pilots for both shows will be available for viewing for two weeks starting August 27, about a month before their September 25 television premieres. (via EW)
