What Do We Think of the New New Girl Intro?

Despite making cast members Hannah Simone and Damon Wayans Jr. regulars a while ago, New Girl has kept the same intro sequence for the history of the show (excluding the one used for the pilot). But now, they've finally updated it to include the whole cast and it's... eh? » 11/05/14 11:50am 11/05/14 11:50am

Hannah Simone Thinks Tinder Is a Sex-Fueled Death Trap

Tinder is a death trap of superficial judgement, and New Girl actress Hannah Simone is here to warn you about the truth.

Prince Was Straight-Up Adorable on New Girl

The Purple One's highly anticipated cameo on New Girl was last night. There was some kind of game or something on before it. Some kind of hand ball thing. (HAHAHA I kid; I lost $50 on the Broncos and I am still crying). » 2/03/14 10:00am 2/03/14 10:00am

If a 'Moonlighting Curse' Exists, It's the Viewers' Fault

In October, at the start of the third season of New Girl, Vulture's Amanda Dobbins wrote a piece titled with its basic premise: "New Girl's Nick and Jess Relationship Isn't Working." As you can likely tell, Dobbins' argued that New Girl was an example of yet another television relationship that had… » 1/24/14 3:40pm 1/24/14 3:40pm

On Taking Sitcoms Too Seriously

Perhaps we've reached a point with sitcoms where we're giving them too much credit. They are, at their core, just supposed to be funny. But as their quality has improved, our understanding of their significance and depth has maybe gotten blown a little out of proportion. » 9/22/13 5:00pm 9/22/13 5:00pm

The New Girl Storyline That Made Network Honchos Skeptical

It's hard to imagine now, but when FOX's New Girl premiered two seasons ago, critics weren't sure if it'd be any good. Zooey Deschanel's oft-mentioned "adorkability" was beginning to tire on people, and it took awhile to be convinced Deschanel wouldn't be totally annoying. But as the show entered season 2 and gained… » 5/09/13 12:40pm 5/09/13 12:40pm

This New Girl Auto-Tune Is Amazing

This auto-tune of New Girl is really wonderful, and a little too catchy. Listen at your own risk, because the hook is good, like, almost a little touching. Strange? Perhaps. Then again, pop music producers have been shamelessly manipulating our emotions for years. Why shouldn't a YouTube auto-tune be able to… » 5/06/13 9:30am 5/06/13 9:30am

Pretty Girls Need Jobs, Too

On TV and in real life, droves of smart postgrad women are finding themselves unemployed or underemployed. But due to the recession and the contracted job market, girls who are considered especially good looking get pulled into low-paid labor that exploits their sexuality.

Contrary to yesterday's rumors, Robert Pattinson is not on a train, on a boat, on a plane, in a moat, or partying in London. He is, in fact, crouching behind some bushes in Reese Witherspoon's Ojai, California ranch (literal, not metaphor) until this whole "world knowing your girlfriend cheated on you" thing blows… » 8/01/12 9:00am 8/01/12 9:00am

New Girl Creator on Female Characters: 'There Is a Double Standard'

Tonight is the season finale of the truly funny/weird/relatable sitcom New Girl, which has been surprisingly enjoyable and amounting to much more than its marketing would lead one to believe. The Fox slogan "simply adorkable" doesn't really reflect what the show is about: Being neurotic, constructing a family from… » 5/08/12 3:50pm 5/08/12 3:50pm
