The “New Girl” is In!

Image via Fox.com

Paired with Golden Globe Award winning show Glee as the lead-in on Tuesdays, I believe “New Girl” will have the potential to be a real hit!  Currently the pilot/preview episode is available on iTunes for free (download it while you can) as well as streaming on Fox.com.

Zooey Deschanel (“(500) Days of Summer”) couldn’t be a better casting choice for the title character Jess. She really brings the character of Jess to life and what we get is quirky, a bit awkward, and pretty much the “girl next door” type making “geek” into something cool and even chic.

What’s the premise?
Jess (Zooey Deschanel), a teacher who recently has broken up with her boyfriend moves in with three guys that she met on the Internet each with their own idiosyncrasies. They are Nick (Jake M. Johnson, “No Strings Attached”), Schmidt (Max Greenfield, “Veronica Mars“), and Coach (Damon Wayans, Jr., “Happy Endings”) .

The role of Coach will be replaced by a character named Winston (Lamorne Morris), a basketball player that was subletting his room to Coach while he played basketball overseas. Wayans, Jr. had to leave the show due to the unexpected pick-up of ABC’s Happy Endings, which he currently is a regular cast member of. I’m curious how the dynamic of the roommates will be once Winston is introduced as I thought the character of Coach was quite funny.

I’m not sure what kind of audience this show will have, I imagine those who tune into Glee will continue to watch New Girl. The humor is a bit silly but yet it works. With all of promos and clips out there, Jess’s biggest quirk is that she sings to herself a lot. Some may think it is corny, but I think it is weaved into the show well that it doesn’t seem so odd (at least in TV land). Then again, who doesn’t hum or sing to themselves once in a while?

The New Girl premieres tonight, September 20, 2011, click on the link below to find out the rundown of the pilot episode.

More Madonna and possibly Britney Spears on “Glee”

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Are you ready for “The Power of Madonna” part 2? According to Entertainment Weekly, Glee’s series creator Ryan Murphy is already in talks with Madonna’s people for another Madonna centric episode which would air early next season. Read more on the Ausiello Files.

Also another idea floating around is a possibility of a Britney Spears episode. Murphy is also entertaining this idea, which started to get buzz after Spears’s manager suggested it on Twitter. Murphy also says that he would want more artist tribute episodes. Some of the artists mentioned were Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin, and possibly Courtney Love. Read more on Entertainment Weekly.

I think Britney Spears’s music would fit well into Glee world. Just the right amount of corniness would make it a great episode. Here are some of my song suggestions if such an episode were to air:

“…Baby One More Time”
“(You Drive Me) Crazy”
“Womanizer”
“Oops!…I Did it Again”
“I’m a Slave 4 U”
“Toxic”

Thoughts?
