The FOX network hasn't had many breakout success in the 2012-2013 season, perhaps apart from the continual buzz of 'The Following,' but they're still nowhere near as stagnant as NBC. Accordingly, not much about FOX's weekday lineup will change going into the 2013-2014 season, as the network has offiically given renewal orders to 'The Following,' 'New Girl,' 'Raising Hope' and 'The Mindy Project.' Find out what FOX has to say of its big news inside!
Though 'New Girl' season 2 seems to have done everything it can to dance around the potential coupling of Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) since their much-talked about kiss earlier in the season, the show is set to throw a familiar obstacle in their path. New reports suggest that 'Enlightened' guest star Dermot Mulroney will return to the fray into an upcoming episode, having not been seen in his "Fancyman" character since season 1. Get the latest on 'New Girl' inside!
As we've seen all season of FOX's 'New Girl,' the titular Jess and her loft-mates have some pretty famous family members. Not only has the acclaimed comedy's second season featured such famous faces as Rob Reiner and Jamie Lee Curtis as Jess' parents, and recently 'Luck's Dennis Farina as Nick's dad, but an upcoming episode will feature 'The League' star Nick Kroll and comedian Bill Burr as the character's brother and cousin! Find out who else rounds out the famous 'New Girl' family inside!
'New Girl's second season may well be remembered for the first kiss between lead charactes Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel), but it would be better described as the season of the parents. Not only has 'New Girl' season 2 featured such famous faces as Rob Reiner and Jamie Lee Curtis as Jess' parents, and recently 'Luck's Dennis Farina as Nick's dad, but its latest acquisition is that of 'Justified' Emmy-winner and 'The Americans' star Margo Martindale as Nick's mom! Find out what takes the gang to Chicago to meet Nick's family inside!
For a show that's supposed to be all about it's titular 'New Girl,' FOX's Zooey Deschanel-fronted comedy sure likes to bring in a lot of other women. Not that we're complaining, of course. Former Disney Channel star and recent 'Scandal' guest Brenda Song will be the next lovely lady to drop by the loft, while 'New Girl' has also cast 'The Daily Show' correspondent Nate Corddry to boot. Find out who they'll play inside!
It's a shame that the current season of 'New Girl' hasn't quite been the ratings breakout it was in its first season, continuing to improve in quality while sometimes unfairly written off as geared more toward women. We've been enjoying the steady crop of big-name guest stars as well, serving up former G4 host and 'The Newsroom' star Olivia Munn in last night's effort, though she won't be around forever. So who's the next girl for 'New Girl?' Why, the ungodly hot Brooklyn Decker, of course! Find out who she'll play inside!
Though it seems like a distant, clip-clopping memory by now, many HBO fans still feel the bitter sting of 'Luck's cancellation, even if it put a stop to all those dead horses. Still, plenty of the show's stars have managed to find their feet, with Kevin Dunn landing on the second season of HBO's 'Veep,' Jason Gedrick menacing 'Dexter,' and now Dennis Farina has joined the gang as the latest recruit to 'New Girl!' Playing Nick Miller (Jake Johnson)s proud papa, what does daddy Miller do that has us feeling 'Luck'-y all over again?
While tonight will introduce two of 'New Girl's biggest guest stars to date, bringing to the table (literally) Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner as Jess (Zooey Deschanel)'s parents for Thanksgiving, it's 'Magic Mike' and 'The Newsroom' star Olivia Munn we're most excited to see. The onetime 'Attack of the Show' host will appear beginning with an upcoming episode as Nick's new girlfriend Angie, so how would you like a first look? Could the character be as racy as we're hoping?
We've reached that crucial time of the year in which networks evaluate how freshman series perform, and make decisions on how to go forward. FOX in particular has been fairly generous with its series, awarding additional episodes to 'The Mindy Project' and scripts for 'Ben and Kate,' but now we've learned that 'New Girl' and 'Raising Hope' will also get additional episodes! Meanwhile, what fate has The CW given to 'Beauty and the Beast' or 'Emily Owens M.D.?'
While 'New Girl' took a few episodes across its first season to get into the swing of things and break out as a critically-acclaimed series, one potential landmine has always remained in its path: must 'New Girl' go the traditional sitcom route and pair up its lead characters? We've observed Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) to have plenty of chemistry together, but do the new clips from tonight's episode "The Fluffer" mean the chemistry's about to hit the fan?
