What do you get when you put Paula Abdul, Zooey Deschanel and Will Forte together? A little bit of chivalry (Forte loaned Deschanel his jacket), some Simon talk (OK, more than some talk about Abdul's love-hate-love relationship with Cowell) and lots of laughs at Monday's Paley Center fall TV preview ...
