Will Arnett and Margo Martindale
There seems to really be no way to talk about CBS' new sitcom The Millers without talking about farts.
The series, premiering Thursday at 8:30/7:30c on CBS, stars Will Arnett as TV journalist Nathan Miller. When Nathan reveals his recent divorce to his mother Carol (Margo Martindale) and father Tom (Beau Bridges), Nathan's parents also decide to split up and Carol moves in with Nathan. But ever since the pilot was made available to critics, the most-talked about scene of the show involves Martindale's character unknowingly passing gas. Needless to say, the focus on flatulence has concerned creator Greg Garcia, who insists there's more to the show than fart jokes.

Anna Maria Horsford
Things are not looking bright for New Girl's resident goofball, Schmidt (Max Greenfield), in Season 2.
Schmidt already faces competition from Cece's new boyfriend, who will be played by Nelson Franklin. And now there's a second character who isn't exactly his biggest fan: Winston's mom. Television veteran Anna Maria Horsford will guest-star as the "tough-talking" Charmaine Bishop, TV Line reports.
Hannah Simone, Nelson Franklin
Schmidt (Max Greenfield) is going to have some serious competition when New Girl returns this fall.
Traffic Light alum Nelson Franklin has been cast as Cece's new boyfriend...
Sorry to put the brakes on Fox's post-Super Bowl momentum, but the network's new relationship comedy Traffic Light is a no-"GO" for me. Or, as I tend to think of it after having watched four derivative episodes: "STOP" me if you've heard this before.
