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."

The Edie Falco-led dark comedy will say goodbye after its upcoming seventh season...
And so the unnecessarily long goodbye begins for AMC's breakout, breakthrough signature series Mad Men, its final 14 hours being unconscionably broken into two halves over two years, starting Sunday at 10/9c. (Yes, it worked for Breaking Bad, but this isn't that kind of show.) While prolonging the inevitable, and potentially blunting whatever narrative momentum still exists in a most inelegant and desperate-seeming way, it's no wonder the often dazzling opening episode — titled "Time Zones," in a nod to the firm's now-bicoastal focus — is so preoccupied with time.
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.

Schmidt (Max Greenfield) may think himself New Girl's perennial ladies' man, but he took it too far when he decided to date both Elizabeth (Merritt Wever) and Cece (Hannah Simone). It wasn't long before he was discovered, and, of course, lost both girls in one fell swoop.
Will New Girl suffer from the Moonlighting curse?
On Tuesday's episode (9/8c, Fox), Schmidt won't immediately own up to his actions but will instead blame Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson), whom he swore vengeance on at the close of last week's episode. "He goes after Nick and Jess' relationship and tries to play some mental warfare with them," Greenfield tells TVGuide.com. "He attacks...

Schmidt is in big trouble!
New Girl's consummate ladies' man will find himself struggling to juggle his two women when Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) ask to go on a double date. Will the group discover he's been dating both Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (Emmy winner Merritt Wever)? Check out an exclusive first look at Tuesday's episode to find out:
Neil Patrick Harris
"This just in: No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool," quipped Neil Patrick Harris toward the end of Sunday's Emmy show, not long after The Colbert Report broke The Daily Show's 10-year winning streak as best variety series, The Voice took the reality-competition prize from The Amazing Race and The Newsroom's Jeff Daniels upset a crowded field of best-actor nominees, remarking, "Well, crap!" while chewing gum.
Breaking Bad, Modern Family and Behind the Candelabra topped Sunday's 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.
After four losses, Breaking Bad finally won its first trophy for drama series, while Anna Gunn took home drama supporting actress honors.
Modern Family became the first show to four-peat in comedy series ...
As an object lesson in the extremes of new fall TV, welcome to Fox's new and not entirely improved Tuesday comedy lineup. (Unhappily missing in action, but for how long: Raising Hope, currently designated to return for its fourth season in the Friday swamplands in early November with back-to-back episodes, a scenario few believe will ever occur.)

The Office alum and the Californication actress will both pop up in the second episode of Season 3 to spar with Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield), TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
