Mindy Kaling's 'House Poor': Mama needs some outdoor furniture

In episode 1 of her new Web series House Poor, The Office‘s Mindy Kaling budget-fakes her own pregnancy with a hoodie and a pillow in an attempt to con her friends into furnishing her new house. What the hell is she gonna do with a giant teddy bear? 

House Poor is just one of 10 original series on Strike.TV, which launched this week but was devised during the Hollywood writers’ strike. Global Warming, starring SNL‘s Kristen Wiig and The Daily Show‘s Aasif Mandvi (with a cameo by Kaling), is also worth a look. Adventures in office microwaving!

If your lingering reaction to House Poor was, "Awww, I miss Busy Philipps" like mine was, don’t miss EW.com’s ‘Freaks and Geeks': Then and Now photo gallery!

    She’s the new Tina Fey. Love her. Can’t wait for her own show.

  • Nate Revkin

    She’s funnier than Tina Fey. Tina Fey can’t act for sh*t. At least Mindy’s funny.

    Take it from all of us here at Rogers and Cowan, Mindy Kaling is the next Tina Fey.
    P.S. Mindy, your monthly retainer is past due. Please remit.

    Mindy Kaling is 100x more talented than Tina Fey. John Q you are out of your mind.

  • Jimbot

    Mindy Kaling is so much funnier than Tina Fey. Tina Fey is possibly the most over-rated person in Hollywood right now. Fey is an amazing writer but her acting is stiff and frankly, one note.

    I’m glad that I’ve found your popwatch.ew.com web site.
    Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.

    Great article. I cant wait to hear more about your research tool. If it is as good as your other products, then you will have another winner. Your article pretty much summed up what I have been seeing too. Great to see some hard data.
