Fox has renewed "New Girl" for a fifth season. That upcoming season will include the Zooey Deschanel comedy's 100th episode, and since "New Girl" comes from Fox's sister studio (as opposed to, say, "The Mindy Project," which is produced by NBC Universal), the network has incentive to keep it around even though its live ratings have become fairly modest. Damon Wayans Jr. will be leaving the show at the end of this season, but the other castmembers will be sticking around. After being in repeats for most of this month, the show's back with a new episode tonight at 9 guest-starring NFL defensive superstar J.J. Watt. I haven't written much about "New Girl" this season, but I've been enjoying most of it. What does everybody else think? Are you happy Jess and her friends are sticking around? And how have you felt about this season overall? »

“Weird Loners” is not “New Girl,” the show’s star Becki Newton wants potential viewers to know. That said, the series hails from “New Girl” producer Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar. It premieres after “New Girl” and follows four young, single friends who are essentially neighbors. “I guess it is similar in that it’s people in close proximity, bunch of weirdos co-existing,” Newton explained to TheWrap during a recent set visit. “The difference is they’re not living in the same apartment. They’re two townhouses next-door to each other, so I think it does lend itself to more singular storylines for each character. »

If only “Weird Loners” were anywhere near as interesting as its title. Instead, this latest Fox comedy falls into that middle realm of nothing special, featuring a quartet of quirky characters, all in their mid-30s, each of whom remains single for his or her own reasons. Still, delaying marriage isn’t as shocking as it once was, just as these kinds of self-absorbed characters don’t exactly break fresh ground. Fox has enjoyed some recent successes — generating sampling of “The Last Man on Earth” — but there’s nothing here that can’t be seen executed significantly better (and every bit as timely) in any random “Seinfeld” rerun.
Indeed, after three episodes of the series, it’s still something of a struggle to come up with a clear description of it, other than to note that by the end of episode one, all four characters are living adjacent to each other in a Queens townhouse. »

Zooey Deschanel sounds like she'll be a pretty fun mama! The "New Girl" star stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Thursday, where she opened up about her pregnancy. The actress -- who looked radiant wearing a red A-line dress and matching red lipstick -- revealed that she and fiance Jacob Pechenik are waiting to find out the sex of their baby. "We are going to be surprised. It's more fun, you know? Make it into a game," she joked. While some mothers have an intuition whether they are having a baby boy or baby girl, Zooey says she's still on the fence. "I go back and forth," she revealed. The expecting star also said that she hasn't been sticking to her vegan diet either. "I eat some vegan meals ... but sometimes you're hungry and you want food that's not vegan," she said with a laugh. "You can't eat so many things when you're pregnant, »

Zooey Deschanel likes a bit of mystery. The New Girl star appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday. Jimmy Kimmel joked about the TV star's baby bump, saying, "Either you're pregnant or you smuggled a cantaloupe out of the green room." "I'm pregnant?" Zooey asked, pretending to be caught off guard.
