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.

'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.

Which New Shows Have You Already Given Up On? Our DVR Discards

by AOL TV Staff, posted Oct 5th 2011 12:00PM
There's a moment of hope in the air right before the weather starts getting cooler, leaves start changing, back-to-school pencils get sharpened and new TV shows premiere for fall. In that blissful time, pilots seem like seedlings of hope, bursting with the possibility of something great, something must-see, something worthy of six seasons and a movie.

And then the shows all premiere and we quickly lose interest in a good majority of them. It's the law of DVR averages -- you just can't record everything.

'Pan Am': hit or miss?
We've already seen the first pick-up (Fox's 'New Girl') and first cancellation (NBC's 'Playboy Club') of the new fall TV season, but which of the new shows have we already given up on?

One of those (ahem -- you know who you are, bunnies!) dropped off all our season pass lists, while the adorkable one at the other end of the spectrum won most of us over ... but not all. Check out our gallery to see which new shows the AOL TV staff has said goodbye to*, and share your own failed attempts at finding entertainment in the comments.

*Editor's note: We haven't all said goodbye to all of these shows. We got one pick per person, and the opinions of each person do not reflect the opinions of the entire staff. Except where 'Playboy Club' is concerned. That was just bad.

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."

What to Watch: TV Picks for October 3 - 9

by Stephanie Earp, posted Oct 3rd 2011 10:00AM
House - Monday October 3, 9PM ET/PT, Global/Fox

The season premiere picks up a year after we last saw our favourite angry doctor, and he' s now serving time for all that crap he pulled. It's refreshing to see House finally suffer a few consequences for all his crazy behaviour, and giving Hugh Laurie the chance to play House behind bars is absolutely inspired. Jaleel White guests as his cellmate and new bestie, and of course -- I mean, come on, you knew it would go this way -- he treats a fellow prisoner with strange symptoms.

Featuring Kal Penn as Robin's therapist, in his first acting role since joining the Obama Administration -- you go, Kumar!

'House' (9PM ET, Fox) season premiere
After last season's controversial finale, we pick up one year later, with everyone's favorite Vicodin addict behind bars.

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

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 28th 2011 2:45AM
'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'?
