New Girl Enlists Cosby Kid Lisa Bonet to Teach [Spoiler] a Thing or Two
Written by on October 17th, 2014

It’ll be a different world for a few New Girl characters when Lisa Bonet guest-stars later this season.

The Cosby Show alum will play an education guru in an upcoming episode, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Bonet’s character will show up when Jess and Coach attend a teachers’ conference also attended by Ryan, the studly new science teacher at Jess’ school  (played by Julian Morris, who debuts on Oct. 14).

The guru’s hands-on approach to learning forces Jess and Ryan to pair up during a session, which only makes Jess hotter for teacher.

In addition to Cosby and A Different World — the spin-off she fronted for a season — Bonet’s TV credits include Life on Mars and The Red Road. She recently appeared in two episodes of Comedy Central’s Drunk History.

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 (, $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.

The look has definite spring vibes thanks to the posies and the pastel tones. Still, just add some opaque tights and a caramel moto jacket, and you’ll be all set to wear this design through the colder months.

Looking for a slightly less expensive alternative? Snag the Floral Print Dress, also chic and demure, but for a quarter of the price, from The Limited stores’ summer collection (, $70) while you still can—and while it’s on sale!

Written by on September 21st, 2014

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, or love him like you’re a fan?
I real-life know him.


Hannah Simone teases CeCe and Schmidt’s bright future
Written by on September 21st, 2014

So far we know there is some serious dating going on in “New Girl” Season 4. With Nick and Jess newly single, who better to assist in the pickup action than their single friends? This season brings viewers back to Season 1 in a lot of ways, because the entire group is single and ready to mingle. So look forward to a lot of dating related hijinks.

That means fans shouldn’t lose hope for CeCe and Schmidt (Max Greenfield). Hannah Simone tells  Zap2it this is a perfect time for a happily-ever-after for the couple.

“There’s always hope. I love the dynamic of Schmidt and CeCe together. There have been ups and downs, growing pains and people getting scared of commitment. Now in Season 4,  we’re both single. He’s coming off of a slutty summer while she’s broken up with her boyfriend, and they still have this great chemistry and connection,” she says.

When asked whether it’s CeCe and Schmidt, not Jess and Nick, who is the couple everyone is rooting for, Simone remains optimistic. She says, “I don’t know what is going to happen this season, but I feel like [CeCe & Schmidt] are in a really good place that if something were to [happen], we’d all be so on board with them.”

‘New Girl’ boss teases season full of sex
Written by on September 16th, 2014

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 Nick and Jess are done for good? And will Schmidt and Cece get back together? Below, Meriwether teases what’s in store for the ragtag sextet:

Talk about where the new season is picking up.
We are picking up the show with the summer having gone by. So, Nick and Jess have been broken up for about four months. It’s just been the summer of weddings. Basically it was an idea for an episode that came from my own life of just looking at my kitchen and I have this magnetic blackboard that was just covered in wedding invitations, and just feeling like this is that time in their lives when everybody’s inviting you to housewarmings and baby showers and engagement parties and weddings. It’s just that feeling of all of them wondering for a second, “You know, am I moving forward in the right way or am I stuck behind a little bit?” They’ve been to 11 weddings in a row and this is the 12th and final wedding of the summer and Jess hasn’t hooked up with anybody since Nick. All the guys are pushing her to get back out there and get back in the game and helping her to take advantage of the easy sex that happens at weddings.


New Girl EPs Tease Bridal, Bruising, Biel-Filled Season 4 Premiere
Written by on September 16th, 2014

It’s been a cruel, cruel summer for the lofties of Fox’s New Girl, who’ve endured wedding after wedding with little more than a refrigerator door full of save-the-dates to show for it.

But as Season 4 opens (Tuesday at 9/8c), the group’s long, nuptial nightmare is drawing to a much-desired close.

“We pick them up [as they're] about to attend the very last wedding of the season,” executive producer Brett Baer tells TVLine. And all of those champagne toasts and garter tosses have proven fertile romantic ground for some (Schmidt, Coach), not so much for others (Jess, Winston).

With cold weather only months away, “Schmidt charges everyone,” EP Dave Finkel says. “Everybody has to hook up” before winter (and the baggy clothes that come with it) sweep in to make things tougher.

But do the pals find wedded, er, bedded bliss? Read on as the EPs tease the tuxedo-wearing, chicken-dancing, rice-throwing season opener.
