Jess Finally Confronts Her Ex About Cheating on Her on 'New Girl' (VIDEO)

'New Girl' - 'Kryptonite'While trying to get in good with the new roommate, Winston, Jess got a little over-excited with a basketball and broke the big-screen TV on 'New Girl' (Tue., 9PM ET on FOX). This was the perfect opportunity for her to face her demons and confront her ex-boyfriend for cheating on her, and get her stuff back from him -- specifically, for the guys, her own big-screen TV.

After her first meeting didn't go so well -- he really does use his charm and hair to take advantage of her -- the guys go with her for the second try. And of all things, it's the sight of the plants dying that gives her the courage to say what she's been needing to say all along.

Unfortunately, she finally has it out with him while her hands are full of clothes and the television, and in her excitement and newfound power of confrontation, she drops it all. Luckily, the TV still works, but how about the slightly retooled 'New Girl'?

Shifting from Coach to Winston was not as jarring a transition, though the loss of Damon Wayans Jr.'s comedic timing and outrageousness can be felt. Things were a little more timid and tame throughout.

Plus, we miss the Douchebag Jar already, as we lost count of the times we felt Schmidt needed to be putting money into it. Why drop a successful recurring gag so quickly?

I know that I'll get flamed for this, but I do not find this show funny in any way. In fact, Zooey is painful to watch because she's trying so hard to be funny, and it's not working.

I don't know if it's her lines or the production, but her attempt at comedy isn't working. I'm sitting there and I'm trying to laugh but she's simply not funny.

And I thought that she was so charming in "500 days of Summer" and she was great in her short run on Weeds. But this show is painful to watch. I hope she changes her comedy writer(s) because this isn't a good start for her.

In my opinion, that is.

I find it hard to believe there wasn't another Wayans waiting in the wings.
