I don't know how much this will really matter, but Mindy Kaling is leaving The Office to go to Fox where she wrote/co-created a pilot that was picked up. It was originally in the development slate at NBC, but they passed and let her take it to Fox. I know her character was never huge, but I don't know what kind of writing she did for the show in the past.
Maybe it will improve the show, but the pilot she took to Fox is one of the hottest of the year so who knows.
