Network Ten’s all new US comedy ‘New Girl’ premieres Sunday January 22nd at 8:00pm.

The hit comedy, which premiered in the US in September 2011, follows Jessica “Jess” Day (Zooey Deschanel),
a woman in her late 20s who is trying to get over her breakup with her boyfriend after he cheats on her.

The series also stars Jake Johnson as Nick Miller, Max Greenfield as Schmidt,
Lamorne Morris as Winston Bishop and Hannah Simone as Cece Meyers.

will be checking it out for sure, would have thought it would be on during the week.

I didn't watch. From the promos I found Zooey Deschanel's character irritating rather than kooky/funny. :roll:

Annoying doesn't quite sum up the five minutes I just watched waiting for Homeland to start.

Excruciating more like it.

Yeah I heard that it gets better, but not sure if I have the patience to watch episode 2. There was only maybe one or two funny bits in the first episode.

I''ve been watching but don't find it all that funny, really hoping it gets funnier like everyone says but I don't see it happening.

Zooey is fine, I like her character. but its the other 3 male actors I don't like, besides being not funny
they aren't right for the roles. especially the black guy that replaced Damon Wayans Jr. he seems out
of place like the others do. the show seems a bit off but don't know why people love it so much.

will continue to watch but its near the bottom of my Tivo priorities list for comedies.

Maybe it's an age thing ... Both mr Cleo and I find her excruciating. Both the character and the actress. :?

And agree - the show isn't at all funny to us either. We've ditched it.

Im not gonna ditch it, I hardly do that.. only if its really bad.

her character is ok, shes cute in a dorky way but she hasn't got on my nerves yet.

but what I don't get and don't like is the title of the show, shes not gonna be the 'New Girl' if it goes for more years ;)

Just might be! Mr Rayne and I are in what I call "an older demographic" :lol: The only new comedies we like are Modern Family, Raising Hope (where is it ELEVEN? :? ) and Suburgatory :)

i can't think of a US single cam comedy that I don't watch, but this one is pretty bad. Some of the better moments might have been a good rom-com movie, but not a show.
