NEW GIRL Fall Finale Debriefing: They got off the plane! (Then got back on.)

Courtesy Fox

Nothing truly tests your mettle like traveling at Christmas time. Especially if it’s traveling after a winter storm completely decimates flight schedules. The gang are all heading out of town for their holidays, but no one gets where they’re going in the way they expect. (Meanwhile, Nels has a little too much déjà vu, but that’s a whole other story.)

Nels

Nels knew how to operate a TV remote control before she knew how to talk. As a result, she has spent an inordinate amount of time pretending she actually lives on a soundstage. When she isn’t watching whichever show is currently capturing her heart, she is writing about how said show is currently capturing her heart. She loves pie.

NEW GIRL Debriefing: Truth Bombs and Guys’ Nights

This week on New Girl, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) head to a teacher’s conference led by guest star Lisa Bonet for a little inspiration, while Nick (Jake M. Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Winston (Lamorne Morris) take advantage of their absence for a “guys’ night” at the loft. Except crushes and wine stains prove to be powerful foes for the gang in all their ventures.

It’s Winston’s (Lamorne Morris) time to shine this week: he’s getting close to graduating the police academy, and his future all hinges on him passing his background check. Which means, of course, that his roommates are front and center during a home visit by the toughest investigator the LAPD can find, apparently. Piece of cake, right? Well, unless you’re Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and accidentally bought a bag full of meth inside of a secondhand footstool, that is. Poor Winston, he’s never going to be a cop at this rate.

It’s an all-It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, all the time kind of night on FOX, with Kaitlin Olson (Dee) guest starring on New Girl tonight, and Glenn Howerton (Dennis) paying a visit to Mindy Project right after!

It’s firmly boys vs. girls this week: Cece (Hannah Simone) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) meet her dad’s new girlfriend, while Winston (Lamorne Morris), Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) and Nick (Jake M. Johnson) help Schmidt (Max Greenfield) out with his focus group at work. What could possibly go wrong? Everything.

NEW GIRL Debriefing: Single and ready to mingle

In this week’s instalment, Jess  jumps back into the dating world, twenty-first century style, with Schmidt’s help. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang decides they’re going to have one last kick at the illegal pastime can before Winston  becomes a cop. Only, they don’t tell Winston what they’re up to, because that would ruin all the fun, now, wouldn’t it? As you can imagine, hilarity ensues in each of these scenarios.

NEW GIRL Debriefing: “Sex fist” works about as well as you think it would.

The gang returned tonight, all single and ready to mingle, after a summer of attending weddings and trying to get lucky as much as they could, with varying results. At wedding number twelve, the last of the summer, things come to a boiling point on New Girl, and everyone tries to get one last roll in the hay before the social calendar resumes its regular schedule. As you can imagine with the likes of these goofballs, things didn’t exactly go as planned.

IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY is taking over FOX!

Well, kind of.

I admit I’ve been out of the loop on recent casting news. So imagine my surprise — and delight! — to see that we’re getting not one, but three members of the gang from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia guest starring in two of FOX’s Tuesday night staples  in September!

First, Rob McElhenny has a spot on The Mindy Project as Morgan’s (Ike Barinholtz) cousin Lou in the season premiere tonight at 9:30pm. Look familiar to you?

THE MINDY PROJECT: Morgan (Ike Barinholtz, L) sets his cousin Lou (guest star Rob McElhenney, R) up with a job in the office in the "We're A Couple Now, Haters" season premiere episode of THE MINDY PROJECT airing Tuesday, Sept. 16 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2014 Fox Broadcasting Co.

Then two weeks later on September 30, Glenn Howerton reprises his role as lawyer (and past love interest) Cliff. Mindy asks Cliff for help with her taxes — how is that going to work out with new love interest Danny (Chris Messina)?

THE MINDY PROJECT: Mindy (Mindy Kaling, C) convinces Danny (Chris Messina, L) that Cliff (guest star Glen Howerton, R) can handle her tax problems in the "Crimes & Misdemeanors & Ex-BFs" episode of THE MINDY PROJECT airing Tuesday, Sept. 30 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2014 Fox Broadcasting Co.

Meanwhile, Kaitlin Olson visits New Girl on September 30 at 9pm as Jess’s father’s (Rob Reiner) new girlfriend. Talk about awkward!

Are you excited about the gang expanding their horizons beyond Philadelphia? I’ll be tuning in, that’s for sure!

(Hey, even Cricket has had a guest spot on Bones.)
