You wouldn’t be the only New Girl fan to have tuned out over the last few seasons, but it seems the once-adorkable Zooey Deschanel comedy will get a bit less quirky in Season 5 (!). Following news that the original manic-pixie-dream-girl would sit out a few episodes for her real-life pregnancy, New Girl Season 5 has made every Schmidt’s dream come true in adding Megan Fox to the loft.

by Britt Hayes June 11, 2015 @ 5:48 PM
If you’ve gotta go to Afghanistan, traveling with Bill Murray doesn’t seem like a bad way to go…maybe. The first trailer for Rock the Kasbah is here, in which Murray plays an aging rock manager taking his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel) on a USO tour of Afghanistan. Naturally, things go awry and wacky shenanigans occur and Bill Murray sings “Smoke on the Water,” further cementing his status as a dad icon.

'SNL' Scorecard: Too Bad We Didn't Have Any Of Seth Rogen's Drugs

by Mike Ryan April 13, 2014 @ 10:10 AM
Except for a couple of notable exceptions, everyone seemed to be going through the motions last night. Look, this happens. Especially at the end of a three-show run -- near the end of a long season –- looking ahead to the final stretch of shows of this season, which begin on May 3. The end is in sight! But, boy, there were some dull moments during Seth Rogen’s hosted effort that played out, at times, in front of an almost-silent studio audience. (Shhh! Don’t wake them!) Here’s this week’s pretty mellow Scorecard…

FOX fans, your time is at hand!

'The Simpsons' Season 24 Brings Back Zooey Deschanel... Again

by Kevin Fitzpatrick August 8, 2012 @ 11:30 AM
You'd think it would be difficult to continue writing love interests for a perpetual 10-year-old, but eat our shorts if 'The Simpsons' doesn't find ways to make it adorkable. We already knew that 'New Girl' star and all around manic pixie dream girl poster-child Zooey Deschanel would reprise her role as Mary Spuckler for 'The Simpsons' season 24 premiere (along with a host of other past girlfriends), but what's this about another return appearance? And what other famous voices are joining the fray?

'New Girl' Musical Episode: Could It Ever Happen?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick May 30, 2012 @ 9:55 AM
Our lives have felt significantly less "adorkable" since 'New Girl' wrapped its first season, and we were left wondering just how the loft gang would ever get back together after Nick (Jake Johnson) moved out.  Then the show rather hastily wrapped that up, but it doesn't mean we miss the show any less!  So as long as we're bein' quirky with Zooey Deschanel, what are the chances we'll get to see some of her musical talents next season?
