All the talk in the world of adult animation over the past week or so has been about Family Guy.
The internet is still buzzing after its writers decided to kill off a permanent member of the Griffin family – Brian – a plot which sent fans reeling.
Petitions were launched, Twitter went into meltdown and fan theories were hatched, and while one Seth MacFarlane-created show continues to dominate conversation, another quietly trundles through its tenth series.
American Dad! is currently into its final run (on the Fox network, don’t worry) before making the move onto TBS for its upcoming season 11, and there’s even talk of a potential film, which speculation suggests is to be set on Roger’s home planet.

As Kermit the Frog recently noted, the Muppets have a long history with Lady Gaga. Mother Monster took the dapper amphibian as her date to the VMAs in 2009, and has even worn him as a fashion statement. So, it wasn't a huge surprise that the "Born this Way" songstress was joined by the Muppets crew for a holiday-themed musical special that aired on ABC Thursday evening ... especially since Gaga is promoting her new album, ArtPop, and Kermit, Piggy and Co. star in the upcoming flick Muppets Most Wanted. In case you missed the show, which featured guest appearances from RuPaul, »

Lady Gaga took her longstanding relationship with the Muppets one step further last night in a 90-minute ABC show dubbed Lady Gaga & the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular. The singer bonded with the puppet ensemble while performing songs from her recent Artpop album with special guests Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, RuPaul and Kristen Bell. While Gaga didn't wear any muppets this time around, she still dressed the part, stepping out in scads of furs and feathers.

A certain New Girl is about to become Steve’s dream girl, as Zooey Deschanel lends her voice and quirky sensibilities to this week’s installment of American Dad.

At the end of last season, Jess and Nick finally got together. Will this development help New Girl's ratings in season three or end up hurting them? We'll have to wait and see.
New Girl revolves around a free-spirited young woman (Zooey Deschanel), her three single male roommates (Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, and Lamorne Morris), and her childhood best friend who's now a model (Hannah Simone).
The higher a show's ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

But he's not just any ex! Oh no, the man once known as Seth Cohen obviously has to be more than that. Instead -- according to E!Online -- Brody will play Berkeley, a "perfect" ex-boyfriend. This apparently means that Berkeley can talk about his feelings and reconnect as friends with former lovers.
Also, Berkeley is a "hip, stay-at-home dad." This could be both good and bad news for Nick (Jake Johnson). On the one hand, the ex is probably unavailable if he's at home with the kids. On the other hand, men are only more attractive with a cute baby in the arms.
Brody is scheduled to appear in episode 14 of the current Season 3. Filming during the week of Dec. »
Adam Brody will guest star in the third season of Fox’s romantic comedy New Girl as an ex-boyfriend of main character Jess (Zooey Deschanel). The actor, who found fame on teen drama The O.C. as geeky Seth Cohen, will play a character described as a ‘cool, stay-at-home dad who prides himself in being an ideal ex’.
Currently airing it’s third series in America, New Girl is a comedy focusing on the relationships between four roommates in Los Angeles. Brody is expected to film his episode next month with an air date of early 2014. We certainly never pictured Seth Cohen as a stay-at-home dad (where’s Summer?!) but hopefully the writers will create an interesting relationship between him and Jess, who is supposed to have remained friends with since the end of their relationship.
Since finishing The O.C. in 2007 Brody has gone down the indie film route with roles »

In an episode slated to shoot next week (and air in early 2014), Brody will play Berkley, a long-ago ex-boyfriend of Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) who’s now a married stay-at-home dad. He’s open with his feelings and prides himself on having mastered the art of being an ex, which is probably why he and Jess (allegedly) remained the best of friends after their breakup.

Holy Chrismakkuh miracle! Adam Brody has signed a deal to guest star on New Girl, E! News has learned. The former O.C. star—who just blew the minds of TV fans by getting engaged to Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester in real life—has taken on a role as an ex-boyfriend of Jess' (Zooey Deschanel) on the Fox hit. Brody's character, Berkeley, is a long-ago blast from Jess' past who prides himself in having mastered the art of being an ex. He's open with his feelings. And you guys, he is decribed as a "hip, stay-at-home dad," so he will probably be holding a baby. Hear that? It's the sound of the ovaries of Adam Brody fans around the world simultaneously exploding. Brody »

Fox’s New Girl has, unsurprisingly, been incredibly successful all over the world and I think it’s safe to say that a huge portion of that success is due to the shows wonderful leading lady Zooey Deschanel. Deschanel has a remarkable exuberance and energy that flows throughout her performance in almost every project she is part of from Elf to 500 Days Of Summer and even managed to improve M. Night Shyamalan’s atrocious The Happening. This is certainly not lacking in New Girl as Deschanel’s character Jess is as bubbly and quirky as ever. She also conveys an innocence to the audience that is finely balanced with an audacious personality that straddles the line between kind and confident perfectly. Either way it’s very hard not to fall head »

Lessons learned from the "Bones" episode, "The Mystery in the Meat" are:
1. Bring a bagged lunch to school.
2. Never eat something called "Hot Bacon" without checking to be certain it's a food product.
3. Make sure the bar in the middle of nowhere still has a country-western theme
4. Horse meat rarely meets health codes, even at public schools.
Failing to remember these things apparently results in murder and/or fights with biker gangs.
Shades of "Soylent Green"
The murder of the week begins with a school-lunch ode to "Soylent Green." That's because the yummy stew is people. People stew.
That tastes even worse than the normal slop.
Due to the rather extreme and disgusting nature of this particular murder, Booth, the Jeffersonian team and Caroline all rapidly descend upon the crime. It turns out that the mystery meat is a canned product called "Kettle-Top Stew" from a company called Tryon Foods. »
It’s hard to reconcile the land of the free with the people you’ll meet on TLC’s new six-part series, “Breaking the Faith.” With the series, TLC continues on its hunt for extraordinary stories from America’s hidden communities (think “Sister Wives” and “Breaking Amish.”) Hot Snakes Media produces the series, which follows nine men and women as they try to create new lives from the one they were born into as part of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

After the messy breakup between Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone), it was only a matter of time before one of them dipped a toe back into the dating pool. But who would have imagined Cece would be the first? (Especially considering she didn’t touch a comb for weeks after getting cheated on by the loft’s own douchebag supreme — and she’s a model!) More to the point, who would have guessed Cece’s return to the dating world would be with another loftmate?
Well, whether you hoped/guessed/nightmare-prophesied this possibility or not, Cece is indeed »

Zooey Deschanel was her usual, adorkable self as a guest on "The Arsenio Hall Show" on Monday (Nov. 18). While there, she talked about her "Amish hipster" style, having a girl-crush on Selena Gomez, "New Girl" and more.
It was all very cute.
Host Arsenio Hall turned out to be rather fascinated by Deschanel's fashion sense right at the beginning of the interview. Fortunately, the actress seemed happy to talk about her signature look. After laughingly calling her own style "Amish hipster," Deschanel noted that others had had a similar idea when describing this form of fashion. One magazine she read even offered advice in this vein: "How to dress if you're a Mormon hipster? You could dress like Zooey Deschanel!"
If you're not familiar with Deschanel's fashion, all you have to do is watch "New Girl" -- the actress says that she and her character of Jess Day have very similar wardrobes. »
In an open letter to "New Girl" producers, Natalie Abrams asks for them to "stop trying to make Nick and Jess happen." She proposes that once the two characters played by Jake Johnson and Zooey Deschanel paired up, "all the best parts of their personalities were dropped." She wants the duo to "split now and make it permanent." TV Guide. Mark Harris contends the Motion Picture Academy "shot itself in the foot (again)" by giving out honorary Oscars outside of the actual ceremony. He says they were "banished" in 2009 to a separate event, but that "moments like these - emotional, contemplative, complicated - are why we watch the Academy Awards, or used to. It's certainly not to see a 10th anniversary tribute to 'Chicago' or to watch Mark Wahlberg banter awkwardly with a teddy bear." Grantland. Anne Thompson proclaims Bruce Dern ("Nebraska") will absolutely receive an Oscar nomination this »
Dear New Girl,
To paraphrase Mean Girls' queen bee Regina George: Stop trying to make Nick and Jess happen! We get it; the chemistry and tension was undeniable between the two of them over the first two seasons, but you gave in and paired them up too early. (Props to The Mindy Project for making us wait for Danny and Mindy!)

David Walton and Majandra Delfino are now the proud parents of two beautiful babies. A rep for the actors tells E! News that they welcomed son Louis Augustus at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. on Sunday, Nov. 10. The newborn weighed in at 8 lbs., 7 oz. "Louis is as healthy as can be," Walton says. "We couldn't be happier with our very early Christmas gift." Walton, 35, and Delfino, 32, are already parents to 17-month-old daughter Cecilia Delphine. Walton—who starred in the short-lived NBC sitcom Bent—played Zooey Deschanel's love interest in a recurring role on Fox's New Girl. He next stars in NBC's mid-season comedy About a Boy, based upon the Nick Hornby novel of the »
It's been a busy Fall, and The Boob Tube Dude all but stopped doing weekly episodic reviews for reasons laid out here. But with a lot of shows starting to wrap up their Fall runs, I thought I'd offer up some short takes on the shows I watch on a weekly basis. I almost thought about breaking down the shows I'm occasionally watching or have long given up on, but let's just say this has been an overall unimpressive lineup in late 2013. That approach saves you time and saves me from having to ice my fingers any more than I'll already need to do after typing all this out.
I'll go night-by-night, which is as good an approach as any for something as wide-ranging as this. I'll cover Sunday-Tuesday now, and Wednesday-Saturday tomorrow.
Notable Shows Not On This List Yet Still Require Mentioning
My favorite show to watch right now is actually "The Good Wife, »
Eddie Murphy will reunite with his Coming To America co-star Arsenio Hall during a visit to Hall’s late-night talker on November 19. Murphy was no stranger to the original Arsenio Hall Show, appearing six times, but this is his first visit to Hall’s new CBS TV Distribution-produced show. Murphy’s expected to chat about his upcoming album 9 and his collaboration with Snoop Dogg on the single “Red Light,” among other things. There’s been a push for noisier guests on the syndicated late-night show in an effort to boost ratings since the recent exec producer changeover. Zooey Deschanel, Mayim Bialik and Sherri Shepherd are scheduled to appear on November 18. Whoopi Goldberg is set for November 20 and Mike Tyson for November 27.

Well, I’ve solved it, guys. I’ve cracked the New Girl Code (not to be confused with the MTV show Girl Code). For more than two seasons, we, the viewers, have been the victims of a long con perpetrated by the show’s writers, actors, and producers. When New Girl premiered, we were promised a sitcom about a well-meaning but socially inept character. We expected to see a charming, attractive lead who nevertheless stumbled and gaffed their way through the world. Basically, the show advertised the adventures of a living, breathing polka dot. And New Girl delivered, but not in the way we expected. The greatest trick New Girl ever pulled was taking the characteristics of Zooey Deschanel’s public persona … and grafting them onto the character of Winston.It was the perfect crime. We came into the series with a set of expectations for Jessica Day. How could we not? »
