Jess Tries to Unleash Her Inner Bad Girl For Sex on 'New Girl' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 7th 2011 12:30AM
'New Girl' - 'Bad in Bed'It's been six years since Jess has been intimate with any man other than her ex-boyfriend, and he wound up cheating on her. So it's completely understandable that she would be nervous about going to that level with her new boyfriend on 'New Girl' (Tue., 9PM ET on FOX).

Justin Long continues to be a great relationship foil for Jess, as he's nearly as awkward and uncomfortable as she is. But nothing beats Jess sporting that strange spiderweb outfit over her bra and panties.

That it was so clearly not her, and neither one of them really knew what to do with it, spoke volumes about who they are as people. And they are not that, though he adorably thought she was.

Nick and Schmidt's Fight Gets Out of Hand on 'New Girl' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 30th 2011 1:30AM
'New Girl' - 'Bells''New Girl' (Tue., 9PM ET on FOX) continues to find its voice, and live up to the potential of its pilot. Who knew that the loss of Damon Wayons Jr. would throw the entire show into a tailspin for a bit, but it's great to see them righting the ship.

Suddenly, Winston has some personality traits to build from and they fit with who he is and what he's done with his life. Plus, everybody loves a good feud. But for as much as we loved Schmidt and Nick fighting over money (essentially) we loved even more Jess' reactions to it.

What to Watch: TV Picks for November 28 - December 4

I Hate my Teenage Daughter - Friday December 2, 9PM ET/PT, Global and Wednesday November 30, 9:30 PM ET/PT, Fox

Well now, this is a strange time of year to debut a new show. The fact that Fox has moved the debut of this comedy around could be a sign they don't have a ton of faith in it, or it could mean nothing at all. With Jaime Pressly ('My Name is Earl') in a lead role, it's bound to have some attitude. She plays one of two moms who discover that their pampered kids have turned into bullying, spoiled mean girls. I think this premise has a ton of potential actually -- I just hope the script has more subtlety than the title.

Justin Long Is the Male Jess on Thanksgiving Episode of 'New Girl' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 16th 2011 2:00AM
Justin Long, 'New Girl' - 'Thanksgiving'It was a Thanksgiving celebration on 'New Girl' (Tue., 9PM ET on FOX), which means all the traditions like turkeys in the dryer and dead old ladies on the toilet. Wait, that doesn't seem right.

But it was funny, as the gang found themselves relocating to a neighbor's apartment when their dryer turkey experiment led to a fire in their apartment. Never mind that the lady of the house was dead, it gave us time to get to know Jess' bizarre male counterpart Paul, played by Justin Long.

So was it weird seeing someone just as goofy as Jess driving the guys crazy, or do we like the idea of her finding someone like herself she can enjoy? Of course, if they're too much alike, doesn't that mean he'll soon be driving her crazy? Future episodes perhaps ...

Zooey Deschanel, Not Just Another Pretty Face: Why 'New Girl' Works

by Stephanie Earp, posted Nov 15th 2011 5:15PM
Undeniably one of the big hits of the season, 'New Girl' is quite lovely. It makes me laugh, which I always appreciate, but it makes me laugh when I'm not expecting it, which is rare since so many of my favorite comedies are deep into multiple seasons.

But series star Zooey Deschanel has become a bit of a lightning rod for pop culture criticism and I'm always curious to know how others are interpreting what I see as 22 minutes of light entertainment. Sometimes seeing fiction through an insistently critical lens can ruin all the fun, but with 'New Girl,' the ideas being tossed around by writers at blogs like Jezebel make the show that much more interesting. Here's a quick guide to some of the themes the show is exploring, and how they're being discussed by critics.

Bones - Thursday November 17, 9PM ET/PT, Global/Fox

I do enjoy it when 'Bones' decides to have a little bit of fun with their murder scenes. This week, they find their victim shrink-wrapped with a Prince Charming doll. Turns out, the woman worked for a toy company headed by guest Morgan Fairchild, who always adds a dash of creepy camp when she turns up. Meanwhile Sweets prepares for his gun certification, despite the fact that Booth still objects to him carrying a weapon.

Jess Freaks Out When She's Told Nick Likes Her on 'New Girl' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 9th 2011 2:15AM
'New Girl' - 'CeCe Crashes'Another solid installment of 'New Girl' (Tue., 9PM ET on FOX) as Jess' model friend CeCe wreaks havoc in the apartment. She's certainly a fun character with a lot more going on than a pretty face and a great body. Of course, that's all Winston and Schmidt saw about her right away and she had a blast tormenting them -- and especially Schmidt -- throughout the episode.

Nick, on the other hand, didn't even seem to notice her. Now it could be that he's still dealing with his own broken heart, but CeCe instead told Jess it was because Nick was totally into her.

Max Greenfield Doesn't Mind People Saying 'New Girl' Is a Hit Because of Zooey (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 8th 2011 7:00PM
Max Greenfield plays Schmidt on Fox's new hit sitcom, 'New Girl,' but he's cool being known as Zooey Deschanel's TV roommate. When he stopped by 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox), all the 'Good Day LA' crew wanted to talk about was the adorkable Zooey, and Greenfield was totally fine with it.

Steve Edwards tried to get a rise out of Greenfield by saying, "When she was here, she said she was the only reason" the show's a hit. But Greenfield didn't bite. "Well look, I'm not going to argue with that," he said. Although he's also had recurring roles on Fox's other hit shows 'Ugly Betty' and 'Veronica Mars,' he's grateful for 'New Girl';s success. "Everyone involved knows how seldom that happens," he said.

After Jess Sees Nick Naked, She Tries to Make It Even on 'New Girl' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 2nd 2011 2:15AM
'New Girl' - 'Naked'Something happened during that baseball-induced break, because I can't remember the last time a series came back stronger after a hiatus than 'New Girl' (Tue., 9PM ET on FOX) did this week. Every character had their moments of comedy, each of them made sense as characters, finally -- I'm looking at you, Winston -- and all it took was for half of them to get naked.

It was a classic storyline, with Jess accidentally walking in on Nick naked. Then, to try and make him feel better, she plots to let him "accidentally" see her naked. Only, she plans this in his room, which is awkward in itself. Why would she be there in only a towel?

Lake Bell On 'How to Make It'-'Entourage' Comparisons & Her 'New Girl' Cameo (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 13th 2011 4:30PM
When 'How to Make It in America' began, Lake Bell's character Rachel was in the midst of a break-up with Ben (Bryan Greenberg). In Season 2, she seems to be on the verge of hooking up with Kid Cudi's character Dom. Bell talked with 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) about what's in store for her character this season, the constant comparisons 'How to Make It' gets to 'Entourage,' and also previewed her upcoming cameo on Fox's 'New Girl.'

Billy Bush started out by asking if 'How to Make It' is the new 'Entourage.' Bell had undoubtedly heard the comparisons before. "I think it's inherently a different show than 'Entourage,' but it does satiate that cool, young hip thing ... a group of friends kind of figuring things out," she said.

Fox Benches 'New Girl' Until November: Get Ready for a Two-Hour 'X Factor'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 11th 2011 8:00AM
'The New Girl' castBad news for 'New Girl' fans, but great news for 'X Factor' and baseball fans: Fox is benching the new comedy until November in order to accommodate some scheduling tweaks.

The network has retooled its schedule slightly to allow it to air even longer episodes of 'The X Factor' as well as the MLB play-offs and World Series. This means that no new episodes of 'New Girl' will air until November.

A scheduled special airing of 'New Girl' tomorrow night will be replaced by a two-hour (count 'em) episode of 'The X Factor,' which will introduce the "judges' mansions" round of the competition.

Zooey Deschanel Discusses 'New Girl' & Squashes TV Rivalry With Her Sister (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 4th 2011 5:15PM
Fox's 'New Girl' is the highest-rated new comedy of the Fall TV season. For the "adorkable" Zooey Deschanel, the transition from movies to TV has been seamless. In an interview with 'Good Day LA (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox), she explained why.

"I think of it as a little movie. It's more like every week we're making a little movie," she said. "Our comedy is all about building on the characters and it's not about jokes, it's about characters being thrown into situations."
