TBS and MTV have acquired basic cable syndication rights for 20th Century Fox’s “New Girl,” which will make its cable debut in fall 2015.
Under the five-year pact, TBS and MTV will air the series on weekdays. Netflix already has U.S. streaming rights for the laffer.
The fourth season of the comedy — which stars Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, Damon Wayans, Jr. and Hannah Simone — will premiere Tues., Sept. 16 at 9 p.m. on Fox. Despite a strong start when it debuted in 2011, ratings for “New Girl” have declined in recent years. Last season, it fell about 20% in the 18-49 demo and finished as the season’s No. 10-rated half-hour in adults 18-49 and No. 5 in adults 18-34. It remains Fox’s top-rated live-action comedy.

Who’s that girl? It’s… an Idiot.
That’s according to New Girl’s season 4 imagery. EW can exclusively reveal the first one-sheet for the Fox comedy, which finds Jess (Zooey Deschanel) in fine company, including—but not limited to—her ex-boyfriend/roomfriend Nick (Jake Johnson). After enduring a post-breakup couples cruise and deciding to put a pin in their romantic relationship in the season-three finale, the roomfriends are set to navigate the choppy waters of cohabitation when the show returns this fall.
“Roommates. Lovers. Idiots.” This verbiage does beg a few questions: Does deeming Nick and Jess “idiots” serve as a judgment? »

Wowing in white! Eva Longoria, Sarah Hyland and Hannah Simone all gave their LBDs a break over the weekend, opting to wear radiant shades of white on the red carpet. Longoria looked lovely at the 2014 Global Gift Foundaiton on Friday, July 18, in Marbella, Spain, in a Sportmax peplump top and skirt, paired with a black-trimmed belt. She kept the look monochromatic with a black clutch, lace heels and neutral makeup. Hyland took a twist on the white dress with a bluish version at the Dizzy Feet Foundation's [...] »

Season three of "New Girl" began with romantic turmoil for Schmidt (Max Greenfield), who struggled to decide between two women he loved: Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (Merritt Wever), whom he dated at the same time before his two-timing was revealed and he lost them both. That was the last we saw of Elizabeth, but is the door open for a possible return in the future? "I sure hope so, if only for the opportunity to have Merritt come back to the show," said Greenfield in our recent video chat (watch below). -Break- Here's an exclusive sneak peek at the 20th Century Fox Television 2014 Emmy campaign He added, "If you're lucky enough to work with actors who are genuinely better than you, your game is so stepped up. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my experience working with Merritt and what she brought to the show. Man, if »
(Cbr) "Supernatural's" Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) has had many memorable run-ins with the Grim Reaper, both of the literal and metaphorical variety. The most haunting and harrowing of the literal encounters were the ones that brought him face to face with Tessa (Lindsey McKeon), a reaper who claimed souls for the physical embodiment of Death. They first crossed paths in season two of "Supernatural" when Tessa tried to claim a comatose Dean’s soul. Their subsequent encounters in seasons four and six reminded Dean that the natural order of the universe was complicated and ugly, but necessary. Tessa came to feel the pain of the natural order herself in season nine thanks to the Angel Metatron’s machinations and their impact on the afterlife. The fatefully intertwined Dean and Tessa had their final run-in during the penultimate episode of season nine, with Tessa drawing their saga to a close »

Once upon a time, most women on television all looked like Donna Reed. Today, it’s a great time to be a woman of color working in television.
Last season, three women of color — “Scandal’s” Kerry Washington, “Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara and “Steel Magnolias’” Alfre Woodward — were nominated for Emmys — lead actress in a drama, supporting actress in a comedy and supporting actress in a movie or miniseries, respectively. And this season, the broadcast networks rolled out show after show featuring African- and Asian-Americans and Latinos in lead roles. Half of ABC’s 12 new shows star actors of color.
“Pilot season hasn’t been this diverse in a long time, specifically as we are talking about women,” says Tiffany Smith-Anoa’i, CBS’ vice president of diversity and communications.
That said, there’s still plenty of work to be done.
In 2013, out of six categories featuring actresses — lead and supporting in drama, »

The cast of Fox’s “New Girl” came together Thursday on the Fox lot two days after the season finale aired to discuss season-three highlights and what the future holds for season four.
“That was the thing that was so weird,” added Zooey Deschanel. “You’re expecting, you know, someone that won’t let you look at him or something. Or flies in on like a…”
“Or nothing, just flies in,” Morris interjected.
“He just comes out of his dressing room, and he’s like a normal human being that’s standing there and not flying,” said Deschanel.
Prince is not only a musician and actor, but apparently also an impressive ping-pong player. »

Fair warning, Roomfriends: If you haven’t seen New Girl’s sea-legged finale, change course now to avoid the iceberg full of Spoilers ahead. If you have seen the episode, click through while we ready the full recap (Update: It’s live!) and see what Zooey Deschanel, Lamorne Morris, and executive producer Dave Finkel had to say about “Cruise.” (Secondary warning and deepest apologies to Schmidt: Prepare for lots of nautical puns.)

Damon Wayans Jr. is staying put on New Girl. Though the news comes as little surprise given his appearance in 17 consecutive episodes of the third season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned he's officially assuming castmember status for the upcoming fourth season. The actor's return to the Fox sitcom was quite unconventional. He starred in the 2011 pilot, alongside Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson and Hannah Simone, but had to pull out of the comedy when it was ordered to series. He originally booked the job in second position to ABC's Happy Endings, which scored a surprise sophomore renewal.

Coincidentally, both new episodes deal with the fallout of two break-ups. In New Girl’s “Big News,” Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) have to come clean that they’re just friends again, resulting in a “devastated” Schmidt. As for Mindy, “Think Like a Peter” follows Dr. L (Mindy Kaling) under the tutelage of her frat bro colleague Peter (Adam Pally), who tries to get the rom-com »

A review of tonight's "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I take the thing that looks like a meth lab and put it in the thing that looks like a pipe bomb... Back when "New Girl" did its post-Super Bowl episode with Prince, I did one of my periodic rants about how happy couples don't ruin sitcoms and that Jess and Nick getting together weren't the root cause of the problems plaguing season 2. And I still feel that way, even after an episode where the two of them broke up because they realized they enjoyed being themselves as friends more than pretending to be other people so they could stay a couple. A whole lot of things went awry all at once this season — Schmidt turning evil, the adjustment period when Coach returned, Winston became completely crazy except when he wasn't, etc. — so that you can't point to »

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.

Guess who’s tossing knives and stirring up trouble?
Abby Day has been creating a rumpus since dropping her bags for an indefinite stay at the New Girl loft. Now, in an exclusive First Look video, star Linda Cardellini teases the highjinks her wild-child character will get up to on Tuesday’s episode, “Sister II.” Suffice it to say, no vintage automobile or ex-boyfriend will be safe.
New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9 p. »

If you think about it, the roommates are just lucky that more people aren't living there. Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) didn't move back in until Schmidt (Max Greenfield) decided to move across the hall. Winston (Lamorne Morris) has his cat, but he has at least refrained from bringing his girlfriend into the mix. And Cece (Hannah Simone) somehow manages to afford a continued independent life.
Still, it's a good thing Nick and Jess (Jake Johnson and Zooey Deschanel) can cohabitate -- because it's getting fairly crowded in that apartment. Who's next? The homeless guy (maybe when he gets his tax refund)? That creepy building manager? Some other random guest star?
