Looks like it’s not so bad being the new girl.

Fox just announced it has ordered an additional 11 episodes of its freshman comedy, New Girl, bringing the full order to 24 episodes.

The Zooey Deschanel show, which premiered last week and was Fox’s highest-rated sitcom debut ever, held up this week in the ratings, retaining 92 percent of its premiere audience. It also earned an impressive 5.2 rating in the all-important 18-34 demographic.

    Love Zooey Deschanel, very attractive and sexy. There’s a lovely gentleness and sweetness to her. She’s amazing. That woman is incredible. She’s a very talented actress. It’s an exceptional performance, just wonderful. I hope she does more mainstream movies from now on and begins her ascension to the A-list.

    • Alex

      I love Zooey too. I don’t care that the show’s garbage, I just love her so much that I’m stupid enough to watch literally anything she’s in.

      • jj

        And that’s what’s wrong with tv. i like zooey enough to wish that this show would go off the air and she could play quirky in a well written movie instead of this poorly written crapola. the writers on this show are just lazy. the show could be much better than what it is, but they fall into the LA trap and think they are funnier than they are.

      • RyanK

        I’m the same way. I just absolutely adore her. My fiance by this point has just accepted the fact that she’ll have to share my love with Zoey. (I put up with her Paul Rudd obsession though, so it all evens out.) Unlike you though, I’m enjoying the show so far.

    • tom

      I love her too. She is A-list already though, with a ton of great movies under her belt… why do you think it was Fox’s highest rated sitcom debut?

      • Mike

        It’s telling that much of the goodwill towards this show starts off with something like: “Zooey’s so beautiful, I love her”, rather than: “Wow, this show’s really funny.”

        Because obviously it isn’t funny. It’s the same old trash.

      • Lori

        The writers on this show are so amateurish and filled rerhashed nonsense to the point where I can barely stand it, but because she is on this show I am still going to watch it.

    • Yo

      Fox dopes are really working overtime spinning this horrid show on these entertainment comments today.

    • Roger C.


  • Mags

    I really wanted to like this show, but I turned it off after 5-10 minutes last night. It’s cute but I don’t find it particularly funny.

    • Asha

      I’ve found that the episodes are much better in the second half. The spend a lot of time setting up jokes. I think it can get funnier.

      • Lori

        She can just do the alphabet and I would still watch whatever she does. You can call me crazy all you like, but I think she is adorable. You need to be a cat person to truly understand the fascination why people like watching her.

      • Jake

        @Lori – So… a moron, then?

      • jj

        Jake, can i marry you? :D

  • heart

    Wow that is three in a row for FOX. By that I mean being the first to have a show on their network getting a full season pick-up.

  • Elin

    Woooo! A full season! Well done Zooey! She has got amazing shapely legs!

    • SaraJeanQueen

      What a random thing to say…

  • bruno


  • Katarzyna

    It’s hysterical!!! I love this series. It’s cute. I’ve been laughing a lot so far. Zooey Deschanel is really charming and awesome in this. She has a healthy model figure that boasts an ample cleavage, fuller legs and a fuller backside. I just love her curves. She’s so shapely. She’s a great example to women around the country.

    • Ash

      hysterical?? I fell asleep during that crap.

    • Andrea

      @Katarzyna i agree! i really like the show actually. it’s adorable! sorry, i guess i’m not with the majority on this one, but i really enjoy it.

    • Lindsay

      Fox should renew a funny, cute, NICE show like this, instead of garbage like Two and a Half Men, on other networks… the show is real, it isn’t crude, and Zoey is a great role model.

      • asher

        @Lindsay – ITA, people saying this show stinks should watch some of the sitcoms on CBS – now THEY have some crappy sitcoms! “New Girl” isn’t great yet, but it has potential.

  • Melissa in CA

    Thank god. Maybe now Fox will stop trying to cram this garbage down my throat.

  • chgosaint

    Pilot – good. Last night – awful. Me ever watching again – Nope. I yearned for the quality tv that is “Whitney” after watching this show last night.

    • Jamaaliver

      Agreed: The Pilot was massively better than episode 2.

      • jj

        considering the pilot sucked donkey doo, that’s pretty sad. seriously, whitney was not good, but i enjoyed it more than the ridiculous writing/characters on New Girl. very telling. I think Fox is trying to build on the early buzz this show got, but people are slowly awakening to the fact that this show’s premise is flawed from the start.

    • Alienate

      Pilot “GOOD”
      Episode 2 “BAD”

      New black guy is no Wayan Jr.

    • asher

      @chgosaint – I am going to assume you are being sarcastic when you called “Whitney” quality TV.

      • Patricio

        Seriously. Whitney is terrible. It’s the typical, “Oh, I’m the uncommonly funny, attractive girl…even though I’m not funny”. They are terrible actors, and the writing is crap.

  • Dantius

    I really enjoyed it. Zooey was adorable and the rest of the characters were likable as well. I will definitely keep watching. God, you have great legs, Zooey. Excellent body overall.

  • Brad

    Love Zooey but the show is mediocre at best. I’ll probably skip watching it unless I hear it gets really good. If Cougar Town and Community can get so amazing after a so so first few episodes then I can still have hope for this one.

    • @ Brad

      Bang on, Brad. I’ll come back after a few more episodes. Just like I did with Cougar Town. Zooey’s charm can only go so far. And let’s lose that super annoying Schmidt character.

      • Brad

        Yeah. He’s gotta go or be rewritten. Besides Zooey’s character, the only other person on the show that I care for is Nick.

        I have the same problem with 2 Broke Girls. The leads have good chemistry. (even though the episodes seem to be written around a notebook full of cheap cliched one liners that the writers have) But the rest of the characters are killing the show. The cook and the Bryce Lee guy are so painful to watch.

      • jj

        how do you like zooey’s character? i tried but she’s the weird infantile person in the office who noone wants to speak to and probably smells a little like mold. she’s the lady you don’t let your kids sell girl scout cookies to bc you’re not quite sure she’s right in the head. she’s the neighbor who bakes you cookies you’re scared to eat. she’s that person whose phone calls you avoid and have to make up excuses about not getting service in your house. need i go on?

      • asher

        @@Brad – The whole point of Schmidt is that he is annoying, and many of us know d-bags like that in real life. I think he is the funniest part of the show, and the actor playing him is just perfect at delivering those lines. I would not be able to stand a person like Schmidt in real life, but on the show he makes me cringe and laugh.

  • Tegan Jovanka

    “New Girl” good
    “Whitney” bad

    • kathy griffin

      why does Zoey always sound like she’s chocking on a c***

  • Mike K

    This show is killing it. Lets hope FOX doesn’t screw it up and keeps it exactly where it is on the schedule.

  • LOL

    America loves crap.

    • i said it

      SUCK MY CRAP!!!

      • LOL

        No thanks.

    • caryn c

      I was looking for this post and was going to say it myself if you already hadn’t!

  • fbdbpw

    Not a fan yet but ill give it 1 more chance

    • Lori

      Zooey in a room filled with guys. It is like a comedy gangbang.

      • Mark

        Except without the comedy.

  • Roger C.

    This show is absolutely awful. Zooey Deschanel is absolutely talentless.

    • hlynn

      Have you not seen Almost Famous?!?! Her small role MADE that movie!

      • Mark

        Which has exactly nothing to do with how awful this show is.

      • @Mark

        Yet it does counter the statement that she is talentless.

      • Alienate

        500 Days was unwatchable
