While half of the New Girl cast spends Tuesday's episode on a cannabis-fueled escapade, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) makes her next big move back into the dating pool with some help from Schmidt (Max Greenfield). Following his cues with the dating app Dice — a seemingly more intense version of Tinder — she proceeds to go on a rapid-fire round of dates with a few undesirable gentlemen. "We just thought it would be really fun to have Jess really getting in over her head," says Matt Fusfeld, who co-wrote the episode with Alex Cuthbertson, in the below clip.

Sorry Tinder, you've officially been replaced by Dice. What's Dice, you may be asking? It's just the hot new dating app that Schmidt (Max Greenfield) will no doubt regret introducing Jess (Zooey Deschanel) to in New Girl's all-new episode on Tuesday. Yes, Jess Day is joining to try a dating app and the results are just as hilariously awkward as you'd imagine. In an exclusive sneak peek at the episode, Schmidt warns Jess, "You're going to get eaten alive on Dice." Alas, Schmidt will agree to be Jess' Dice Yoda and guide her through many weirdos, he will! And in our exclusive video above, Lamorne Morris previews the wacky adventures of Schmidt and »
It’s that time again, and the Fall TV schedule is packed this year. It somehow seems that there aren’t as many new shows hitting, but there are some big ones.
On the other hand, that’s a good sign for the popularity of returning shows, even if some of them may be pushing their luck at this point. Sticking with shows that work is great, but at some point we’re milking things, and don’t actually have fresh ideas to work into the routine. I’m oddly curious to see how some of these long-running series perform, especially with the cable networks throwing out a lot of great shows.
At any rate, there’s a lot going on, so let’s just jump into the mix.
Links in the schedule are to reviews, and this page will be updated as reviews become available. New shows are in blue. »

The family that prays together actually does stay together - even in Hollywood. Actress Beverley Mitchell shared a moment that will no doubt delight fans of the long-running series 7th Heaven: a new cast photo. No, it's not a TV special. But in true, folksy Camden family style, the former colleagues enjoyed their reunion around a dinner table on Tuesday night. Mitchell, who played middle daughter Lucy Camden on the show, posted to Twitter a photo of herself alongside Jessica Biel, David Gallagher, Stephen Collins, Barry Watson, and Catherine Hicks - a.k.a. Mary, Simon, Dad, Matt and Mom. »

On paper, Fox’s “New Girl” got off to a rocky start in its fourth season premiere, down 45% from last season’s opener — but when compared to where the show left off (1.2 in adults 18-49 and 2.4 million in total viewers for its third season finale), the Zooey Deschanel comedy posted gains, scoring a 1.6 rating and 3.1 million total viewers. Whether it can improve those numbers once DVR viewing is factored in remains to be seen, but given the show’s audience erosion last season, it’s likely heartening for execs that fans were curious enough to give the laffer a second chance after a creatively uneven year.
Lead-out “The Mindy Project” told a similar story, posting a 1.3 in 18-49 (down from last year’s 1.9 premiere, but even with its season three finale). In total viewers, the Mindy Kaling series was up a tick from its most recent finale, with 2.8 million vs. »

Oh, happy day—Jessica Day is back! On New Girl’s season 4 premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 16, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and the boys decided to go out on a wedding bender, and naturally that meant that the adorkable leading lady needed something fabulous to wear. Enter the perfect matrimonial ensemble: the Eva Franco “Renee” dress (Evafranco.com, $320). The A-line frock, with it’s “Swan Lake” cherry blossom embroidery and matching green skinny belt, not only complemented Jess’ super-feminine wardrobe, but it also made for the perfect formal—without being too formal—ensemble.

Craig Ferguson tells Seth Meyers: “You’re going to go f*cking crazy, Seth” Meyers admitted to his 12:30 counterpart, “I definitely don’t think I’m there yet” and Ferguson said it usually takes a few years to get the hang of hosting a daily talk show. “I think anyone who does a TV show over and over and over again, you’re going to go crazy,” Ferguson told Meyers.

(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you have not yet seen the Season 4 premiere of “New Girl” titled “The Last Wedding,” and the Season 3 premiere of “The Mindy Project” titled “We're a Couple Now, Haters!”) Call it a soft reboot, or at the least a focus shift for both of Fox's returning comedies. “New Girl” and “The Mindy Project” kicked off their new seasons by pushing their central characters in opposite directions, and it worked perfectly for both shows. While Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina gave coupledom a try on “The Mindy Project,” guest star Jessica Biel helped »

The first two episodes of New Girl's fourth season are about as close as the Fox comedy could get to pulling a 180 from last fall. Internal flirtations within the loft gang seem indefinitely relegated to the back burner, with Nick-and-Jess (Jake Johnson and Zooey Deschanel) now a thing of the distant past and Schmidt's (Max Greenfield) pursuit of Cece (Hannah Simone) more passive than it's been in years. Some more sensitive souls may weep for the ill-fated couples, but instead of serial monogamy the show will function much as it did during the first season. The

A review of tonight's "New Girl" premiere coming up just as soon as guys still like an Oakland face with an La booty... When I spoke with Liz Meriwether at press tour, she said that one of the goals for getting the show back on track for season 4 would be to simplify the storytelling and put her characters in position to be funny as often as possible. "The Last Wedding" is a strong example of that approach at work. There's essentially just the one setting and storyline: the gang from the loft — or "sex fist," as Jess hilariously dubs them — all try to have sex at what they think is the last wedding of the summer season. There are a couple of prominent guest stars in Jessica Biel(*) and Reid Scott, but for the most part the laughs are driven by Jess, Nick and Schmidt, with the occasional helping of Winston. »

When a best man is Jess’ best bet for wedding nookie, the New Girl heroine breaks out the sex fist and goes after what she wants.
I promise, the Fox comedy’s Season 4 opener isn’t as dirty as it sounds, even though Jessica Biel spends most of the episode slinking around a dance floor, and Nick and Schmidt have a protracted discussion about whether or not to engage in a four-way with two bridesmaids.
Okay… maybe it is as dirty as it sounds. If you watched, we want to hear your thoughts in a minute. But first, read on »
The fall TV season is nearly upon us, bringing with it a slew of summer series finales and pilot previews and giving us plenty to discuss this week on the podcast.

New Girl is back for its fourth season tonight, and we find the gang at a place we all know and love/hate: the last hurrah of wedding season. Twelve weddings in, the troops are grasping at ways to entertain themselves while yet another couple trudges to the altar, even as they try to mend hearts that are in various states of brokenness. Max Greenfield took a break from shooting yesterday to talk about the upcoming season with Vulture, and we discussed all the things he loves: playing Schmidt, people who write their own vows, attending weddings (both when he was single and now that he’s married), Prince, SoulCycle, and the secret rules of True American.Hey, Max! Thanks for taking the time to talk today.I love me some Vulture! I saw you wrote about Pete Davidson this morning. I love him. Love him like you know him in real life, »

When Fox's offbeat, female-centered comedies "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" premiered in 2011 and 2012, respectively, both were hailed as the season's best new comedy. But as the pair returns tonight, it's clear that only one takes full advantage of its star's distinctive persona -- and it's not the one you might expect. As part of a television vanguard of "young women askew," to use James Wolcott's phrase, Zooey Deschanel and Mindy Kaling once seemed poised to disrupt the pop cultural landscape. Neither is anywhere close to universally liked--the former has been called "twee" and the latter "smug," criticisms that often smack of discomfort with successful women. In embracing eccentric leading ladies, Fox implicitly promised two fresh, funny sitcoms with distinct perspectives on modern womanhood. Since then, while both series have weathered rough patches and witnessed moments of grand comic invention -- the hilariously »

Season 3 of "New Girl" was a season of transition for Hannah Simone's Cece and Lamorne Morris' Winston. For Cece, the season began with her discovering that she was being cheated on and saw her giving up on her modeling aspirations to become, at least in the short term, a bartender, before she left on a romantic dalliance with a younger man. Meanwhile, Winston began to come to terms with his thwarted hoop dreams and seemed to find at least a temporary calling as a potential police officer, while putting his own needs second to those of his cat. Last week, I sat down with Morris and Simone to talk about the season of quarterlife crisis and the impact of those changes on Cece and Winston this season. We also talked quite a bit about Winston's run of weekly peculiarities. "I caught on probably once Max Greenfield said something out loud about it, »

New Girl will be hitting the reset button on its fourth season, bringing the show back to basics without the messiness of Nick and Jess’ relationship bogging down the Fox comedy.
Instead, all six of the show’s main characters are now single, providing a new wealth of comedy as they attempt to get back out there with various incoming guest-stars. “If you’re an actor and you want to have sex with one of the New Girl cast members, call Liz Meriwether to figure it out,” the show’s creator jokes of the new season.
But does that mean »
