Everyone's losing it — or more to the point, remembering how they lost it — on one of this season's more uproarious episodes of Fox's New Girl, a reminder of just how potent the comic chemistry can be between Zooey Deschanel and her BFFs when they all hang together, sharing embarrassing stories (some more mortifying than others) about how their "innocence" (such as it never was) was stolen. This episode (Tuesday, 8:58/7:58c) will be especially enjoyable for fans of Max Greenfield's Fat Schmidt slapstick and for those who've been waiting for Lamorne Morris' Winston to emerge from the sidelines and get some major LOL action. Jess (Deschanel) starts the trip down Painful Memory Lane with glimpses from Prom Night, which brings suitors including Teen Wolf's Dylan O'Brien (Stiles!) into her life. But it's Winston's grotesque hook-up and Fat Schmidt's messy night in college with the girlfriend who would become Merritt Wever (from Nurse Jackie) that you're likely to remember. All that and another great payoff at the end. No sophomore slump for this show.

New Girl is killing me with this relationship drama! Please tell me that Nick and Jess will wise up and get together, and that Cece will dump her fiancé for Schmidt. — Mina
NATALIE: Good news: Nick and Jess will go on a first date. Bad news: Their date doesn't go as planned. "Neither one of us wants to admit to being on a date," Zooey Deschanel tells us. "And then Russell, Dermot [Mulroney]'s character, is in the same restaurant." Awkward ex alert! Meanwhile, it seems that Schmidt is not going to try and win back Cece after all. "He will try and get a plus-one for her wedding and tries to find an ex-girlfriend of his [played by Merritt Wever]," Max Greenfield says. "And when he finds her, he realizes, 'Oh, wait a minute. This was special when we were together.'"
So Ryan's new boss on The Following is clearly one of Joe's people, right? — Jason

After 15 or so years of practicing law, The Good Wife's Will Gardner is about to face his toughest jury yet: his sisters.
"Will is an alpha male, and he loves to be the one questioning," Josh Charles tells TVGuide.com "To see a character that has a lot of strength in the office being put back against the wall while his sisters harass him and question him about his personal life — that was fun to play. I haven't been able to do anything like in the last couple of years with this character."
