Whatever the answer, at least we'll get to see Wever back... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/07/new-girl-season-3-merritt-wever-will-return-as-schmidts-girlfriend.html

'New Girl': Damon Wayans Jr. might reprise role for Season 3

Looks like Coach might be making his way back to the loft. Now that "Happy Endings" is officially, officially canceled (after months of hoping another network might pick up the half-hour ABC comedy), Damon Wayans Jr. is in talks to re-join "New Girl" to reprise his role as Coach, TVLine reports.If a deal is reached, Wayans would be back for a major Season 3 arc. He appeared in the "New Girl" pilot, but once "Happy Endings" got a Season 2 renewal he was forced to exit the Fox comedy. Lamorne Morris's Winston was then added to the cast. Who knows how these two will mesh, but something tells us if Wayans does return, we'll get some great Winston/Coach comedy gold."New Girl" Season 3 premieres Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/07/new-girl-damon-wayans-jr-might-reprise-role-for-season-3.html

FOX fall TV 2013 premiere dates: 'New Girl' Season 3, 'Bones' Season 9 and more start a little early

FOX has announced premiere dates for its fall schedule, and as usual the network will launch its series both earlier and later than the other networks.Four nights of programming and shows including "Bones," "Glee," "New Girl" and "The X Factor" will premiere before the official start of the 2013-14 season on Sept. 23. That will help those shows get a decent run of episodes in before postseason baseball puts them on the shelf for a while in October. The network is also saving a few of its premieres for after the World Series. Futuristic cop show "Almost Human" won't debut until Nov. 4, and comedies "Raising Hope" and "Enlisted" are set for Nov. 8. "Bones" is also shifting from Monday to Friday in November.Here's the full rundown of FOX's fall premieres. All times are Eastern/Pacific, and new shows are in bold.

TV ratings: 'The Voice' tops Memorial Day, 'Bachelorette' premiere so-so

Fast National ratings for Monday, May 27, 2013"The Voice" and "Revolution" had a pretty clear path to the top of the ratings Monday, as there was less competition than the two shows have faced during the regular TV season. "The Voice" continued its downward trend since it began its live shows, but it still led the night by a wide margin in both viewers and adults 18-49.NBC's only real challenge came from the premiere of "The Bachelorette" on ABC. It was down a good amount from last year's premiere -- which benefited from a "Dancing With the Stars" lead-in -- but up a little from its Memorial Day airing in 2012.NBC averaged 9.4 million viewers and a 5.6 rating/9 share in households for the night.
