good new sitcom
glad to see it picked up
hope it doesn't mean an end to her singing career in She & Him
Zooey Deschanel might just be popping some Champagne right about now. The first series to get a full-season pickup is her new sitcom, New Girl.
Fox has just announced it has extended the 13-episode order to 24, on the basis of the first two weeks' ratings.
USA TODAY's Gary Levin reports that while many new shows dropped off after the first outing, New Girl (airing next on Tuesday at 9 p.m.) retained an impressive 94% of last week's premiere ratings. And Fox says the show premiered as the network's highest-rated fall sitcom debut in 10 years.
