The promise: Zooey Deschanel has big blue eyes and I liked her in '500 Days of Summer'; the pilot had some decent laughs and a solid crew of co-ed friends.
Why I've Given Up: Call me a curmudgeon, but I'm not so into the whole "adorkable" cult that's developing around this show. The only people I've met in real life who embody Jess' flighty energy are off their medication. I was also outraged when they re-cast Damon Wayans Jr.
