"American Idol" may not be the ratings monster it once was, but it's still a power player for FOX and the network hopes to capitalize on that with a one-night-only special airing of comedies "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" after "Idol" on Thursday, April 4.The "New Girl" episode "Date Night" features Jess (Zooey Dechanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) attempting to go on a "first date." "The Mindy Project" episode "Mindy's Birthday" features Morgan (Ike Barinholtz) throwing Mindy (Mindy Kaling) a surprise party."New Girl" and "Mindy" typically air on Tuesdays, where the former has struggled to match its Season 1 ratings and the latter has simply struggled.

That, or you're far more in-tune with the insanity that is "New Girl." Because an Indian marriage convention is exactly what we get in "Table 34."The road to "Table 34"We can guess why procreation-obsessed Cece (Hannah Simone) would be at the convention. After all, she wants to find a good, stable husband to father her children ASAP. She's the easy one. As for the others...Jess: Of course Cece is the first to know about the kiss between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson).

And where Cece goes, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) follows. In a turban.Nick... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/02/new-girl-the-aftermath-of-a-kiss-in-table-34.html
