FOX Has Renewed New Girl For A Seventh & Final Season

Zooey Deschanel’s dyed-in-the-wool liberal Jess is going to fly through Donald Trump’s first (and last?) term as POTUS.

New Girl‘s upcoming seventh and final season will pick up three years after the events of last month’s Season 6 finale, our sister site Deadline reports. The game-changing twist was apparently part of a hail-mary pitch series creator Liz Meriwether made to Fox execs last week when the series was on the verge of being cancelled.

The network ultimately commissioned an eight-episode farewell season that, per Deadline, will span an entire year and feature “major milestones for all main characters… including a big one in the series finale.” – TV Line

New Girl has quickly become my favorite comedy to binge (it’s neck and neck with The Office and Parks & Rec) so this news is literal music to my ears. Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Cece & Winston have turned into one of my all time favorite group of TV friends, and while the season 6 finale could have served as a series finale, I’m glad they feel they have more stories to tell. Season 7 will only be eight episodes and will take place three years in the future, but I have faith that creator Elizabeth Meriwether will keep the laughs coming in droves.

Trailer Alert: ‘The Last Man On Earth’ Season 2

If you never watched season 1 of ‘Last Man On Earth’, you missed one of the more original seasons of television in recent memory. A standalone character carrying a 30 minute comedy on network TV just doesn’t happen, but somehow Will Forte, Phil Lord and Chris Miller made it work, and made it hysterical in the process. Season 2 starts on September 27th, and the only thing better than the cool weather in the fall is the gigantic amount of television that is waiting to be consumed. Bring it on.

CM Punk Getting Hassled by a Dick Head Made Me Like CM Punk Again

Check this out from the Fox/UFC Q&A:

First off, for anyone who doesn’t know who Troy McClure is, or you don’t get the reference, watch this:

Now that we got that out of the way, what kind of sick piece of crap ruins a perfectly good Q&A session? I’m sure CM Punk or any of the other UFC fighters that participated didn’t need to be there. I really want to believe that CM Punk genuinely likes interacting with fans, I really do, but I can see why sometimes that can be a little bit hard to do. I’m sure for every nice and normal fan Punk encounters on twitter, or in real life, there is 20 of these underwear stains ready to challenge him to a fight or call him names. The name CM Punk has left a sour taste in my mouth every since he left the WWE the way he did (and we will never actually know the real reason for his departure), but after this dude getting all up in Punk’s face I am in Punk’s corner for his first UFC bout. Whether it be against this dude or anyone else, I hope Punk silences the haters.

For his antics at the UFC event, the gym Pousson trains at banned him. What a moron.

Tucker Carlson Doesn’t Think Falling Alseep While Driving and Causing a Death is Reckless Driving…Wait What?

“I’m not trying to take anything away from the tragedy of this,” Carlson replied. “But 10 years in jail for falling asleep? It strikes me as very different from taking drugs, drinking. Has that ever happened? Has anybody ever actually gone to jail for falling asleep?”

“For falling asleep and causing a death?” Schwartz asked. “Absolutely.”

“But, I mean sometimes people — and I’m not defending anyone here,” Carlson continued. “I’m really struck by the idea that someone who falls asleep — which is something that everybody does every day, not necessarily considered an act of recklessness — does it unintentionally, nods off is a criminal.” – UPROXX

The only good thing about this interview is that Fox News had the brains to put an actual lawyer on the air to dispute everything this moron Tucker Carlson was saying. Falling asleep while driving a vehicle, not to mention a semi truck, might as well be the exact definition of reckless driving. There’s a reason most people fall asleep in a bed or on a couch: because they’re laying down not doing anything. like say, driving a car. Obviously this wasn’t intentional by the truck driver, but if you operate a vehicle and fall asleep and that act kills someone then you go to jail. In Tucker Carlson’s world I guess we’d just chalk it up a loss because everyone falls asleep. That’s like saying its OK to go out naked in public because everybody, every day, is naked at some point. But you can’t just go around hanging dong and expect not be picked up for it. Just like you can’t drive a semi truck and decide it’s nap time. Go back to Waterloo, Tucker.

Let’s Skip the Hype and Get Rebecca Grant a Sideline Reporter Job Now

image

Just give this girl a sideline reporter job now. We all know it’s going to happen. Happened with Erin Andrews. Happened with Katherine Webb. And it’s going to happen with Rebecca Grant. Positions herself perfectly at the Clippers game grabbing her ham hogs which I guess is the only criteria to get you an interview on Fox News now? Of course she yells off screen at her friend during the live interview. Why woulnd’t she? Gotta keep the hype going. Wouldn’t want a boring interview to ruin all the momemtum you got from grabbing your boobs at a basketball game. Let’s just have ESPN sign her to cover the NFL Draft tomorrow and negotiate a Dancing With The Stars clause into her contract so we can watch her until some other hot girl in the stands captures our attention. Although I gotta say, I would not mind staring at that face during a basketball or football game.

Mrs. Doubtfire 2?! HELLLOOOOOOO

So apparently Fox 2000 has been rumored to have ties to a Mrs. Doubtfire 2!? This is the best news I’ve heard since they green lit Jurassic Park 4. Other rumors on the table for this sequel is that the man himself, Robin Williams, will join the cast. This leaves me with one question. What are the chances we get Piece Bronsnan and Sally back?

The stuff dreams are made of.

Chinese Walmarts Are Really Splitting Hairs These Days

Source – Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, has recalled donkey meat sold at some outlets in China after tests showed the product contained the DNA of other animals, the US company said.

Wal-Mart will reimburse customers who bought the tainted “Five Spice” donkey meat and is helping local food and industry agencies in eastern Shandong province investigate its Chinese supplier, it said late on Wednesday in official posts on China’s Twitter-like Weibo. The Shandong Food and Drug Administration earlier said the product contained fox meat.

The scandal could dent Wal-Mart’s reputation for quality in China’s $1 trillion food and grocery market where it plans to open 110 new stores in the next few years. China is the largest grocery market in the world and is set to grow to $1.5 trillion by 2016, according to the Institute of Grocery Distribution.

Donkey meat. Fox meat. Human meat. What’s the difference? If you’re shopping for “five spice” donkey meat at a Walmart in China getting some fox meat mixed in there is the least of your worries. Apparently people who eat donkey meat are very picky. Walmart wants to throw some other animal DNA in there and all of a sudden there’s a huge uproar. Have you seen some of the stuff they sell at Chinese Walmarts? Crocodiles, rib cages, turtles. If you’re going in there looking for food you have to expect the worst. Tis’ the life of a Chinese Walmart shopper.
