We already know that The Good Wife is the drama that cast the best guest stars on network television (in fact, during its run, they should just rename the Guest Star Emmy the Good Wife Emmy), but in the comedy world, “The Mindy Project” may be the leader among networks. “The Office” had a lot of great ones over the course of its too many seasons, “New Girl” does solid work, and “Happy Endings” had some great guest stars during its run. But in one season (and a few planned second-season episodes), “The Mindy Project” is killing it, and not just in love interests for Mindy, but in female guest stars as well (Chloe Sevigny, Ellie Kemper).

How good is Kaling at landing big-name love interests? Here’s her ten best so far, including two from the upcoming second season (not included, James Franco and Kris Humphries, both cast in season two episodes, but I don’t know if they’ll play love interests or not).
