Just a day after it was revealed Megan Fox was pregnant with her third child, she posted an epic Instagram confirming who wasn't the father. The pic was a collage that included pics of Will Arnett, Shia Labeouf and New Girl star Jake Johnson with the caption "#NotTheFather." "It was pretty humorous," Arnett told me yesterday while promoting his and Fox's new movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Darkness. "I got asked about it about a million times and I had so many great answers that I'm not allowed to say." He whispered one Nsfw joke he wanted to so badly crack. "There's no way because it would instantly be retweeted a hundred million times," Arnett »
The networks are open to new dramas on Friday, making comedy a bigger priority and holding back more ammo for midseason. These — and an overall streak of conservatism — are among the big takeaways from the network schedule announcements from this week.
Is comedy ready for a comeback? While drama gets most of the attention during the era of Peak TV, some of the broadcasters’ top young-adult ratings continue to be generated by half-hour comedies, which also repeat better.
Comedy leaders CBS and ABC both came to the realization that laughter is the best medicine for their early-week schedule needs, opting for four-comedy lineups on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. NBC, meanwhile, took another step closer to coming out of its comedy cocoon by shifting its lone hour of fall comedy from Friday to the higher-profile Thursday.
Overall there are 24 half-hours slots devoted to comedy on the five most-watched nights of the »

If you’re like the typical industry-savvy TVLine reader, you’ve been following the networks’ big fall presentations in New York City — commonly known as Upfronts — all week. You’ve heard what the heads of ABC, Fox, The CW and the rest have to say, but what have your favorite actors been up to while all of this pomp and circumstance unfolds around them?

Upfront week continues with Fox's schedule announcement for next season. Technically, you need three for a trend, but based on Fox's plans and what NBC announced yesterday, it does seem as if we may be heading for a season where the broadcast nets save most of their new material for winter and spring, and lean heavily on returning series in the fall, when the attrition rate tends to be higher. Fox's fall schedule will only have a trio of newbies — two of them, Lethal Weapon and The Exorcist, adapting popular movie series — while the network plans to roll out nine different freshman series — including high-profile sequels to 24 and Prison Break, plus Lee Daniels' first new series since Empire — after the calendar turns to 2017, with both new and returning shows shuttling on and off the air between January and spring to avoid repeats wherever possible. The schedule, night-by-night: Monday: Status quo »

New Girl has wrapped its fifth season on Fox, and the woman behind the series is already thinking about season six. The Hollywood Reporter shared an interview with Liz Meriwether, and she spoke about the series headed back toward the direction of a Nick and Jess relationship during season six. The pair tried to make it work early on in the series, but things fell apart during season three.

Spoilers for New Girl's fifth season finale, "Landing Gear." The episode just aired on Fox last night. Creator and showrunner Liz Meriwether spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the future direction of the series and the eventual New Girl TV series finale.
Last night's "Landing Gear" features Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece's (Hannah Simone) wedding. While Jess (Zooey Deschanel) has been feeling those old feelings for Nick (Jake Johnson), he gets together with Reagan (Megan Fox).

It was a steady night of comedy farewells on Fox on Tuesday as New Girl ended its fifth season with a wedding and Grandfathered (0.6/2) and The Grinder (0.6/2) went out with a bit of whimper. With NBA and NHL playoff action elsewhere on the dial last night, The networks’ Jon Stamos-led show was down a tenth from last week while its Rob Lowe-led series was up a tenth from its May 3 offering. Fox hasn’t renewed either newbie yet, while the Zooey Deschanel show was picked up… »
“New Girl” producers probably aren’t tossing much wedding rice this morning, as Tuesday’s second nuptials episode actually slipped from the first. That said, 9 o’clock viewers are harder to attract than 8 p.m. eyeballs are, and both half-hours ticked up one-tenth of a Nielsen ratings point from last week. CBS and NBC once again tied atop the key 18-49 demographic in primetime, as “NCIS” and “The Voice” both rose. CBS again easily topped total viewers.

A review of tonight's New Girl season finale coming up just as soon as John-John redecorates the White House... New Girl as a rule benefits from keeping things simple. The more characters, and the more plot, a given episode has to deal with, the more the seams start to show on a series that's most comfortable sitting and back and letting its five regulars riff. Just look at the contrast between the bachelor and bachelorette party episodes a couple of weeks back: the one with so many guys struggled to deal with them all, while the one that was just Jess, Cece, and Aly had room to go off on many hilarious tangents. So the two-part season finale — which brought back Reagan, Coach (and Coach's girlfriend May), Tran, Schmidt's parents, and Cece's mom, along with continuing the Jess/Sam and Winston/Aly relationship stories, all while anything and everything went »

Like any good sitcom, New Girl's season five finale had a beautiful wedding that was only able to take place after about a billion obstacles got in the way of the bride and groom. But don't worry, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) actually tied the knot! We'll get into that in a minute, because first we need to talk about what happened with our other favorite New Girl couple, Nick and Jess (sorry, Winston and his prank wife), seemingly made some strides in their relationship. But did they really? Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Sam (David Walton) realized they weren't meant to be, and decided to part ways. That opened the door for Jess to realize her true feelings for »
We have a feeling onetime “Weekend Update” correspondent Stefon would have liked Tuesday’s New Girl finale — because, man, it had everything.
A wedding. An engagement. A break-up. An exchange of “I love you”s that was rudely interrupted by food poisoning. A conga line in the aisle of an airplane. Winston in the buff.
Over the course of two episodes, the Fox comedy brought each one of its central relationships into new, somewhat terrifying territory, before wrapping things up on a bittersweet note (thanks to an ill-timed hora). Herewith are the highlights from Tuesday’s two-part Season 5 sendoff:

New Girl's Hannah Simone has been tapped to host the new Kicking & Screaming TV show on Fox. A competitive survival series, Kicking & Screaming teams 10 expert survivalists with -- let's say indoorsy types -- for what Fox calls, "the race of their lives."

Kunitz and Anthony Dominici executive produce. Rebecca Shumsky Quinn developed the project and is a co-executive producer, along with Shumsky and Harris. The series is now in production, in Fiji.

She's baaack! Megan Fox returns as the loft's fifth roommate, Reagan, in tonight's season five finale of New Girl. The two-part episode, which airs at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Fox, will see Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) Finally tie the knot. Like, for real! They're definitely gonna get married. That doesn't mean things won't go incredibly wrong before they do get hitched, but it's totally happening. And there's more than one love connection in the air—after Nick (Jake Johnson) invites Reagan to be his date to the wedding, she actually follows through. Naturally, the less-than-suave Nick has a little trouble playing it cool when she shows up for »
Tonight’s Schmidt and Cece wedding won’t be the “New Girl’s” first nuptials; it won’t even be the second. But it will be the series’ best one (so far), if showrunner Liz Meriwether has anything to say about it. This has been a terrific season for the underrated comedy, one that had to endure six weeks without its titular character, due to Zooey Deschanel‘s real-life pregnancy. “It definitely scared me,” Meriwether told TheWrap of life without her quirky lead. “But then it worked out really well.” “Once we knew we were gonna do the show without »

In the weeks since Prince's passing, there have been numerous remembrances of the superstar's hilarious appearance on Fox sitcom "New Girl" back in 2014. Now, star Zooey Deschanel has opened up about her own experience working with the musician, and how the artist had some very specific demands about just who was -- and definitely was not -- allowed to cameo in the episode.
Deschanel appeared on "Conan" and discussed the surreal shoot, telling host Conan O'Brien that the concept for the episode -- Prince throws a party at his house in Los Angeles, which the "New Girl" characters attend -- demanded that some celebrities be there, too, since The Purple One wanted the experience to be as authentic to real life as possible (and obviously, when Prince has a party, his famous friends are going to show up).
But unfortunately for the "New Girl" crew, the decision to invite »

“New Girl” fans remember Prince’s cameo on the popular sitcom, but little do they know that he vetoed a Kardashian appearance – unfortunately, his request came a little too late. When Zooey Deschanel was a guest on “Conan” on Monday night, she explained how the late singer, who died in April at the age of 57, came to be on the show. “I got an email from his manager saying that he liked watching the show and wanted to come on,” she said. “I was definitely more than surprised, I didn’t picture him watching a sitcom, let alone my sitcom! »
