New Girl: What Happened to the Schmidt We Knew and Loved?

Max Greenfield

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.

Top Moments: American Horror Story Axes One of Its Own, and Mindy and Danny Finally Take Off

Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina

Our top moments of the week:

14. Dead Sexy Award: Boyd's story just keeps getting twist-ier on Justified. In order to get out of his latest beef with Paxton, Boyd convinces Sheriff Mooney to switch sides in the battle and tells Paxton he had indeed murdered Boyd. But in order to pull off the scheme, Mara suggests Paxton will need to see a dead body — or at least part of one. Ultimately, the pair decides — after upping the sexual tension by taking a guided tour of the tattoos on Boyd's naked torso — to re-create Boyd's ink on one of the body parts in Paxton's own morgue as a stand-in. Ironically, if prison-bound Ava knew about Boyd and Mara's sexy stand-off in the bar, Boyd might already be a... read more

Jason Katims Talks Downsizing on About a Boy, Promises More Parenthood Crossovers

David Walton

Executive producer Jason Katims is downsizing on his new show in more ways than one.

After working on two hour-long dramas with large ensembles — Friday Night Lights boasted 10 series regulars and Parenthood currently has 15 — Katims' new show, About a Boy, is a half-hour comedy with just four stars. "I've always wanted to do a comedy. I've always wanted to do a half hour. What's exciting about the form is that you have to tell these stories in such a streamlined way and it's been really great," Katims told reporters Sunday at NBC's Television Critics Association winter previews. "This is a very small ensemble and you get to focus on telling one story. ... That's really very different from what I've been doing."

However, like FNL and Parenthood, About a Boy is an adaptation of the movie of the same name, which is in turn an adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel. In the TV version, David Walton (New Girl) steps into the Hugh Grant role as an immature 30-something hit songwriter named Will whose life is turned upside down when an... read more

Fox Boss on Growing Tuesday Comedies, the Future of X Factor and New Details on Gotham

Simon Cowell, Mindy Kaling

Less than 24 hours after Brooklyn Nine-Nine's surprise double wins at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly touted the network's Tuesday slate of comedies while also saying that he hopes for growth.

"I'm very proud of all four shows. I think they've all performed very well. ... We put a nice little crown on top with our wins," Reilly told reporters Monday at Fox's Television Critics Association winter previews. Although Reilly called the low ratings for Dads, Brooklyn, New Girl and The Mindy Project "a frustrating situation," he also noted that all four comedies are "at the top of the pack" compared to comedies on other networks. "Some of our mature shows are down ... so it's been a mixed bag, but the positive side is some of our new shows have performed.... read more
