'New Girl' gets auto-tuned: The love of Jess and Nick in computer-voiced song

You'd think, in a show starring an actress who also has a singing career, that "New Girl" wouldn't need the auto-tune treatment. You'd be wrong. The result of auto-tuning dialogue from the show is every bit as entertaining as it should be.Although the video features lines from all of the "New Girl" regulars, the focus is very much on the relationship between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson). The contributions from Schmidt, Winston and Cece only serve to highlight this.Probably the best exchange in the video comes from some amusing Nick/Jess juxtaposition. Right after Nick's "Why are you running away?" line, we see Jess' random marathon-finish bit as she says "I did it for Kenya!" Honestly, that almost makes sense in the bizarre context that is "New Girl."That said, Nick's "I'm a man, Jessica!" is a close second in all its auto-tuned glory.The great thing about this video is that it tells a fairly...

'New Girl' Star Jake Johnson Talks Losing His Virginity... On Screen

After a brief hiatus, Fox's "New Girl" returns tonight with an episode that star Jake Johnson (otherwise known as curmudgeonly bartender Nick Miller) says might be the funniest yet. And how could it not be with each character spilling the story of how they lost their virginity (with accompanying flashbacks)? When Jake stopped by the MTV News studios recently, we just had to engage in some fact-finding pillow talk. Metaphorically, of course. This isn't that kind of workplace. Read More... "The 'Virgins' episode was written by our creator, Liz Meriwether. I think it's potentially our funniest script that we've done," Jake said. "It's everybody in the loft, as well as CeCe, how they lost their virginity. So Nick's story goes back to high school, where he and Winston grew up together. And their dad, the great Dennis Farina—getting him back was awesome. I think he's the best. He takes them to a hotel and gets them prostitutes... As only he could get away with being charming while getting under-age boys prostitutes." Now if, like me, you were wondering whether any of these deflowering tales are based on real-life experiences, Jake ensured they most certainly are not. "No, a lot of ours aren't," he said of the series' storylines. "We have such great writers. They have a really firm understanding of these characters, and we just show up at the table read." So, just to be clear: Jake did not lose it to a prostitute. We think. As for the will-they-won't-they relationship between Jake's Nick and titular girl Jess (played by Zooey Deschanel), the actor said he's been buoyed by the response their flirtation has gotten from viewers. And he counts himself among fans rooting for the couple. "I know it's been unbelievable the people's reaction to it, which has been really exciting," he said. "I know at least as an actor and a fan of the show, I've been wanting it to happen. I don't know if I necessarily want them to be together and get married and have kids, but I like exploring that relationship. The writers have a great understanding of it—that I'll come in and read these scripts and every move they make people seem to like, so it tells me they're doing a really nice job." "New Girl" airs tonight at 9 p.m. on Fox. Are you excited to see how the gang lost it? Do you hope Nick and Jess get it on? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter !

'New Girl' preview: 5 things to know about 'Virgins'

We may have seen a lot of their recent sexual conquests, but that doesn't mean we know anything about how that all began for the characters on "New Girl."Thanks to "Virgins," however, we will. Oh will we ever! All of this helpful "first time" information starts because Jess (Zooey Deschanel) gets a text from the guy who, to use Jess' words, took her flower. This prompts all of the roommates -- plus Cece -- to share how each lost his or her virginity.While we won't be giving away any specifics here, you should know that sex, drugs, rock-and-roll and even death figure into the stories. Really. See if you can figure out how from these five "New Girl" spoilers:1. It shouldn't be much of a surprise that Fat Schmidt (Max Greenfield) didn't have much game back in the day. He did, however, have a lot of lubricant and pickup lines involving cookies.2. Throughout the various...

'New Girl': A night of fighting, photography and self-discovery in 'Bachelorette Party'

The wedding of Cece and Shivrang is fast approaching on "New Girl," which means of course it's time for Jess to throw her best friend a bachelorette party. So she does. Naturally, it does not go according to plan.I could recap this episode in great detail. But there is nothing that I could write that would be better than what "New Girl" already said. Instead, you're going to get a summary and a whole bunch of quotes from "Bachelorette Party."What happenedIt turns out that Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang's (Satya Bhabha) wedding is only three weeks away, so Jess (Zooey Deschanel) plans a bachelorette party for her best friend. This is a) because Cece has wanted a crazy party since childhood and b) because Cece has not yet asked Jess to be her maid of honor.In order to pull this off, the guys have to kidnap Shivrang and spirit him away for the night....
