Zooey Deschanel and Max Greenfield
New Girl creator and executive producer Liz Meriwether is ready to lighten the mood this season, and it's safe to say she's not alone. "As my 13-year-old cousin said to me this weekend, 'Are people going to yell at each other less?' And I said, 'Yes,'" Meriwether tells TVGuide.com. "We all are just really trying to go for the funniest thing this year. I think the comedy is really our priority."
Nick and Jess will have to face a harsh reality during New Girl's season finale (Tuesday, 9/8c, Fox) when they're forced to spend an entire weekend together on a cruise ship — a super romantic trip they planned before their split.
To soften the blow of having to spend the trip together, Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) invite the whole gang along. But, being the frugal spenders that they are, Nick won't pass up the chance to get their money's worth during the trip, even if that means being forced to do romantic activities like couples yoga and massages with Jess. Unfortunately, those events will actually make them realize being just friends is much harder than they thought. What does that mean for the future of the gang and their living situation? TVGuide.com turned to executive producers Dave Finkel and Brett Baer to get the scoop:

There's no place quite like the twisted heartland of FX's Fargo (Tuesday, 10/9c), a marvelous 10-episode variation on themes established in the quirky 1996 Oscar winning film. Once again, warm and neighborly small-town decency gives way to a bitter chill that has less to do with the snowy Minnesota plains than with the dark crevasses of human depravity.
That was fast!
After Danny cut things off on Tuesday's The Mindy Project, Mindy (Mindy Kaling) is back on the market and willing to try anything in her quest for love. Or at least she has to be if she's willing to take tips on her love life from Peter.
Which bubble shows will survive?
Based on his advice, next week Mindy will attempt to think like a man at a bar where she meets Lee (Max Greenfield), a smooth-talking first grade teacher. And judging by these pictures below, the pair really hit it off!
Apparently there's enough Schmidt to go around!
Max Greenfield, who plays the beloved jerk on New Girl, will guest-star on an upcoming episode of...
New Girl's Schmidt needs to get his mojo back.
Ever since Schmidt's (Max Greenfield) breakup with both Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (Merritt Wever), he's become a neutered character who lacks the spectacular douche-jar worthiness that we all fell in love with from the beginning of the Fox comedy.
Freaks and Geeks' Linda Cardellini joins New Girl as Jess' sister
The Veronica Mars movie has an official release date: March 14.
According to Entertainment Weekly, which broke the news, creator Rob Thomas was hoping to debut the film exactly a year after launching the movie's Kickstarter campaign, which garnered $2 million in just the first day.

Welcome to Fantasy Island. The doors to this Los Angeles gentleman's club are open, with Rihanna's "S&M" blaring as dancers take the stage. "My favorite place in the world," says Lamorne Morris, who plays New Girl's Winston. "I've never been to this one before, but it's dirty and stinky, exactly what a strip club is supposed to be." Morris and costars Jake Johnson (Nick) and Max Greenfield (Schmidt) have gathered here to shoot a scene with Damon Wayans Jr., who appeared as one of the roomies, Coach, in the show's 2011 pilot...

Coach is back on New Girl! But not everyone's happy about it.
On Tuesday's episode (9/8c, Fox), the return of Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Nick's (Jake Johnson) old roommate brings out some...
The periods are a giveaway. The more I watch ABC's lighter-than-helium super-spy romp Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which was just picked up to no one's surprise for a full season, the more I feel thrust back to a different time, a simpler and brighter time when organizations like U.N.C.L.E. (as in, The Man From ...) held sway on TV, fighting its evil counterpart T.H.R.U.S.H. — or given the hokey jokiness of S.H.I.E.L.D., maybe a better parallel is Get Smart and KAOS (which I'm not sure used periods, though maybe should have). I'm not what you'd call a comics maven, so I can't help it that I giggled every time the word "Gravitonium" was uttered in last week's episode. Things get a tad more serious this week (Tuesday, 8/7c) when the team comes across a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who's apparently gone rogue — but as the episode's title ("Eye Spy") suggests, you can't always believe your (or someone else's) eyes.
