First up from THR and The Wrap comes casting news for Let's Be Cops. Damon Wayans Jr and Jake Johnson, who both starred in the New Girl pilot, lead the comedy as "two friends who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms, giving their lives a boost and some fun. However, they run into trouble when they cross a dangerous Russian mobster." Garcia will play a veteran detective who lands the unenviable distinction of becoming boss of the two wannabes. »

There’s a new rom-com around the corner and it’s setting up with a good comedy cast, with a hint of a few already gone by but we’re always happy to see Anna Kendrick. Joining her will be New Girl‘s Jake Johnson, Olivia Wilde and Ron Livingston, who you’ll probably know best from Office Space but all four have been having a rather successful time of it later.
In Drinking Buddies, all four are as suggests, but with an intriguing new premise and one partly close to my heart, craft beer! Kate (Wilde) and Luke (Johnson) are colleagues at a brewery, and everyone thinks they’ll probably get it on one day soon but…they are also each in a relationship. Kate is going out with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is seeing Jill (Anna Kendrick). It’s said that Jill wants to move their relationship forward, »

CBS has released promotional videos for six of its eight new series premiering next season. The network opted to post behind-the-scenes videos rather than traditional trailers. Included is The Millers with Will Arnett, Mom with Anna Faris, The Crazy Ones with Robin Williams and Hostages with Toni Collette. Cam Gigandet’s legal drama Reckless and the ensemble comedy Friends with Better Live are not included. Watch the clips below. Enjoy!
This heavily serialized thriller is set for a limited run of 15 episodes. Starring Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott and Tate Donovan, Hostages has been compared in spirit to an extended arc from Person of Interest. Like Showtime’s Homeland, the new series is based on an Israeli series by Alon Aranya, Omri Givon and Rotem Shamir. The show’s plot centers on a family wrapped up in a mass political conspiracy that is poised to change their lives forever.
Hostages airs mondays at 10 p. »

Kate is with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is with Jill (Anna Kendrick). Jill wants to take their relationship to the next level, but Luke isn’t ready to commit … especially when he and Kate find themselves spending a weekend alone.

As the second season finale of New Girl, “Elaine’s Big Day” has a lot to cover. Like “Winston’s Birthday” before it, there’s a lot of story to get out of the way. Unlike “Winston’s Birthday”, however, parts of this episode feel rushed and skirted over to ensure that we hit all the major plot points required for the show to move forward into what will hopefully be an equally strong third season.
For that to happen, a certain amount of threads need to be tied up by the end of “Elaine’s Big Day” – Cece has to either marry Shivrang or reveal that she still loves Schmidt; Jess and Nick need to face up to how they really feel about each other; and Winston needs to somehow get to grips with his love of pranks. The show needs to do all this in an interesting, funny, »

For a newly sober single mom, it's probably not a great idea for your estranged, recovering alcoholic mother to find her way back into your life. Nor is it a solid plan to live in wine country, working at a Napa Valley restaurant. But that's exactly what Anna Faris' character Christy is facing in the new CBS comedy "Mom."
The new series, Faris' first regular TV gig, brings prolific producer Chuck Lorre's tally to four on the network's docket for 2013-14. ("The Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men" also return this fall, with "Mike & Molly" held for midseason.) Centered around Faris' Christy, the show follows the exploits of the single mom who's been sober for four months. Working as a waitress, her newfound sobriety is tested when Bonnie (played by the estimable Allison Janney), her estranged mom reenters her life to over-complicate Christy's already crowded life. »
On Tuesday's season finale of "New Girl," Cece tied the knot with boyfriend Shivrang in a beautiful traditional Indian ceremony. Well...almost. (Spoilers Ahead!) Things were going along just fine until Schmidt -- Cece's ex-boyfriend -- decided to sabotage the nuptials. To make a long story short: Jess and Nick fall out of an air vent and come crashing down on the couple, Cece calls off the wedding and to top it all off, her groom-to-be runs off with a former flame, played by none other than Taylor Swift.
With Cece's major wedding fail in mind, we asked our followers on Twitter and Facebook to share their biggest Big Day disasters. Click through the slideshow below for 30 real-life wedding day horror stories.

There were a lot of moves on television last night and not just the five finales inprimetime. So You Think You Can Dance (1.9/6) was back for a 10th season with a first-time May sweep debut. Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy were joined by guest judge Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family as La hopefuls auditioned and angled for a ticket to Las Vegas. The premiere stumbled 14% from last season’s debut on April 24, 2012 but was up 19% from Season 9’s finale on September 18. The other dance show of the night, ABC’s Dancing With The Stars (1.8/5), was up 6% from its results show from last week and was the third-most-watched show of the night with 11.59 million viewers. Back on Fox, the season finales of comedies New Girl (2.1/6) and The Mindy Project (1.3/4) followed. The second-season ender of the Zooey Deschanel starrer was even with its May 7 show but down 25% from its May 8, 2012 Season 1 finale. »

Taylor Swift knows she has an image that's all rainbows, kittens and love -- and on last night's finale of "New Girl" she made fun at herself in a pretty hilarious way.Warning: Big finale spoilers ahead! The final episode of the season revolved around Cece's (Hannah Simone) wedding to Shivrang (Satya Bhabha), but after interruptions from a wild horse, a rabid badger and the tune "Cotton-Eyed Joe," the two didn't end up going through with it.Of course, it wasn't all the unwanted interruptions that made them call it off, but Cece's feelings for Schmidt (Max Greenfield).But Shivrang had a surprise of his own waiting in the wings -- his secret girlfriend Elaine (Swift)."Oh Shivy, I've loved you since the first grade," Swift yells after popping up in the audience. "And I'm so lonely that I just lie awake at night and write about you in my »

For reasons passing understanding, Taylor Swift's New Girl cameo — which took place at a wedding, and which involved Taylor Swift interrupting the wedding to (spoiler alert) run off with the groom — did not involve the seminal Taylor Swift call-off-the-wedding song "Speak Now." (Imagine Schmidt singing "Speak Now" to Cece with the badger on drums. Would that not have been wonderful?) Instead, Taylor did a half-Graduate send-up and said some cute things about journaling to Shivrang. She was pretty cute, even if she did not get to sing. »

Airs on Tuesdays at 9pm on Fox
It’s been a big year already for TV comedy wedding, Parks and Recreation, Happy Endings, The Office, How I Met Your Mother (kind of), and even Community with its marriage/graduation mashup. And last night it was time for New Girl to take a stab at nuptials with the doomed-from-the-start ceremony between Cece and Shivrang.
However, what everyone really wants to see is the conflict between Nick and Jess. Since Jess’ father Bob (Rob Reiner) has arrived, things have been pretty tough for our quirky and adorable couple. With Cece’s wedding happening and with it being the finale, Nick has one final chance to prove he can be a decent human being and not cause any trouble (at least for »
Spoiler Alert, Newbies. If you haven’t seen tonight’s New Girl, read no further. For everyone who has, click through now!
Though the season 2 finale title, “Elaine’s Big Day,” may have paid homage to a pivotal moment for one wedding guest (Taylor Swift in a hilarious cameo), fans were more interested in last night’s relationship-defining turning point for Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson). Deschanel talked to EW about the roommates’ 29th-minute decision to give it a go — though her perspective on the roomfriends’ Dtr moment is definitely different than you’d imagine. “I don’t »

Jake Johnson' Nick. And Zooey Deschanel's Jess. Rode. Off. Into. The. Sunset. Literally. Excuse us for a moment while we continue to squeal like a little girl at her first sleepover party over New Girl's season finale, which ended with Nick and Jess officially in a relationship. (Call it the anti-will-they-or-won't-they!) And in a fun twist, it was Schmidt (Max Greenfield) who ended the hit Fox sitcom's sophomore run on a romantic cliffhanger, torn between Elizabeth (Meritt Wever) and Cece (Hannah Simone), who called off her wedding. So what can we expect from the gang in season three? We went straight to New Girl executive producer Brett Baer for scoop on what's ahead for Nick and »
New Girl wrapped up its second season this week with a wedding, an amazing make-out session, and hijinks galore. Though Nick and Jess are always the focus for us, there's a lot going on - Cece's wedding gets sabotaged (I mean, sabo-ed), one couple doesn't make it, and Taylor Swift herself is there. The episode is a pleasing ending to a funny season filled with will-they-or-won't-they moments, and before we say goodbye, let's talk about our four favorite things from the New Girl season finale. The song "Cotton Eyed Joe." The '90s one-hit wonder plays a very important role: it's part of Schmidt and Winston's plan to sabotage Cece's wedding. It's a hilariously random song to pick, and the fact that Nick can't resist fist-pumping to it is priceless. Nick and Jess "un-call it." Nick and Jess finally have an honest conversation about their relationship, where Jess confesses there's »

"New Girl" may have just given its viewers one of the most satisfying season enders in history with its Season 2 finale episode, "Elaine's Big Day." It had everything! A wedding -- and a relationship -- broke up in spectacular fashion. Jess and Nick kissed before riding off into the night. There was a huge guest star in Taylor Swift. A badger played a major role.
What more could anyone want?
Does this mean "Cotton Eyed Joe" is Jess and Nick's song?
Who would have expected that a silly -- but catchy! -- song would be the thing that destroyed Cece's wedding but simultaneously cemented Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) as a couple? Because they are most definitely a couple now.
It was touch-or-go for a bit, of course. Jess didn't want to have anything to do with an immature Nick who would play pranks to disrupt a wedding. »
Listen, I try to be a dignified winner/recapper, I really do, but: I Knew It! I knew there was no way Cece was getting married! No! Way! None!
Okay, thank you for letting me get that out of my system. Let's all proceed in an orderly fashion to the review below.
"Elaine's Big Day" wasn't the best episode of New Girl Season 2, but it was an appropriate note to end the year on: this is now a fully realized, confident and consistently hilarious show that knows exactly what it is.
It stands in stark contrast to New Girl Season 1's season finale, which explored similar issues (choosing the right mate, making enormous life decisions, Nick's near-bottomless inner well of self-loathing) in a profoundly less satisfying way (coyote mind-meld? Really, Season 1 Jess??).
What a difference a year makes, huh? New Girl Season 2 has finally figured out what its real strengths and weaknesses are, »
