A judge has ruled that a rewrite of a lawsuit against 21st Century Fox over the sitcom New Girl should survive a motion to dismiss. The complaint comes from Stephanie Counts and Shari Gold, who allege New Girl derives from their proposals for a television show or movie that would have been titled Square One. The two plaintiffs are suing Fox, William Morris Endeavor, showrunner Liz Meriwether and executive producer Peter Chernin for allegedly lifting their materials after they shopped their script through Wme and proposed Zooey Deschanel for the lead. In October, U.S. District Judge Stephen Wilson couldn’t

Last week was a busy one in primetime for premieres and finales — including the return of NBC’s “The Voice” and the exit of ABC’s hit rookie “How to Get Away With Murder” — but AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and Fox’s “Empire” were the clear standout performers.
The veteran zombie drama and first-year Fox soap, both of which wrap their seasons this month, continued their growth spurts last week and opened up some distance on the rest of the primetime field in the adults 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen estimates for the Feb. 22-March 1 frame.
“Dead” looked like it was finally losing some steam when it opened the second half of its fifth season last month with slightly depressed numbers opposite the Grammy Awards and “SNL Anniversary” special. But it bounced back a week ago opposite the Oscars and then jumped nearly another 10% on Sunday (to 7.5 in 18- »

In the comments of last week’s recap, commenter Dirty Dancing fan “franceshouseman” pointed out that New Girl works best as a “diet It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia," where “the plot is just a loose form to allow each character in their own way.” As if to prove franceshouseman’s point, enter “Walk of Shame.” The real shame, though, is how bland an episode with so many excellent elements turns out to be.Drybar is going to owe New Girl a lot of money after “Walk of Shame,” because it, somewhat accurately, depicts how getting a blowout can feel like drinking a magical confidence elixir. The self-esteem boost is enough to convince Jess and Cece to attend a party held by Bearclaw and his roommate, Generic Hot Guy (I assume that’s his name; he has no other distinguishing characteristics). The last time we saw Josh Gad’s Bearclaw, »

Oh no, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) fell into the ex trap. Tonight's episode of New Girl will find Jess coming face-to-face with two blasts from the pasts during and after a wild night of partying with Cece (Hannah Simone): Paul (Justin Long), her very serious Bf from season one, and Bearclaw (Josh Gad), her admirer from season two. In our exclusive sneak peek at the episode, Justin Long previews his long-awaited return to the Fox hit sitcom, and kind of reveals former teacher Paul's slightly embarrassing new job. So how does Jess run into Paul? Well, after a night of partying at Bearclaw's, (never a good idea), she gets pretty thirsty on her "walk of shame" home and decides to stop »

Street magician Troy von Scheibner on guilty pleasure New Girl and how he’s saving Game Of Thrones for retirement
This probably won’t be that popular with the guys but I really love New Girl on Channel 4. It’s got a dry sense of humour, and I like that. Also, repeats of Dragon Ball Z on Cartoon Network. I’ve been into anime since secondary school, running back home every Thursday because a new episode was coming out. The Undateables, too. I find it quite endearing. People who don’t have any issues with ourselves, we take a lot for granted. I watch a show like that and I’m like: ‘Damn – I’m lucky.’

“Who gets to stand for something and still make people laugh and feel something at the same time?” said “Glee” star Alex Newell on the carpet at Saturday night’s Family Equality Council awards dinner at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
At the 11th annual awards dinner, the Family Equality Council honored the two series for their impact in advancing cultural conversation about Lgbtq (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender questioning) families, and also paid tribute to Mayor Annise Parker of Houston, Texas, and the brand Honey Maid, for their “This Is Wholesome” campaign.
Sandra Bernhard hosted the event, opening the evening with a performance alongside her band, and telling stories riffing on her daughter. The dinner – part fundraiser, part celebration – shed light on Lgbtq families and the work being done to grant them »

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Directv and the suspenseful thriller, Cut Bank, which is available exclusively on Directv.] Longtime television director Matt Shakman makes his big screen debut with "Cut Bank," a Coenesque thriller that, oddly enough, is actually premiering on the small screen via Video On Demand. Before directing Liam Hemsworth, Billy Bob Thornton, John Malkovich, Michael Stuhlbarg and Bruce Dern in this nail-biter about a man who witnesses a small town murder, Shakman directed dozens of TV episodes for series including "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "Revenge," "The Good Wife," "Mad Men," "Six Feet Under," "Psych," "House," "New Girl," "Ugly betty," "Weeds" and "Childrens Hospital," to name a few. In spirit, here are seven other strong debuts from directors who cut their teeth in television. »

If you’re worried that The Mindy Project won’t be the same once Mindy and Danny’s baby arrives, well...you’re right.
“The show won’t be the same. It will be different,” Dr. Castellano himself, Chris Messina, told ETonline while discussing the film Alex of Venice, his upcoming directorial debut. (More on that tomorrow.) “But the style of the show won’t change…They’ll still get the laughs.”
In our Q&A, he discussed everything from what he thinks of the surprising pregnancy reveal, to what kind of dad he thinks Danny will be, to the Annette and Dot spin-off we all want to see. And of course we asked if we’ll see Danny bust out his stripper moves again this season.

Zooey Deschanel has different plans from her sister, as she has no new baby plans for New Girl. Yes, the real life pregnant star caught up with The Hollywood Reporter about the changes coming up at the end of the season. She indirectly confirmed that she won’t have to hide her growing belly as they wrap it up, since she feels as if she is not showing much yet. However, she also did not rule out a possible pregnancy for next season. Here is what Zooey had to say.
It’s hard to know until we finish the season. Right now, I’m only showing a little bit, so it’s pretty easy to still hide in clothes. Maybe, eventually, I’ll have to stand behind a couch or walk around carrying a purse.
Well played, Zooey! It likely helps that she does not know how they will end it yet. »
