Damon Wayans Jr - how come he's in this and happy endings? Quite unusual surely?

He probably believed all the talk of HE being canned and went looking for another role.

So is he being written out of HE?

HE is better than New Girl based on opening ep.

He's only in the first ep of New Girl and replaced after that.

Yes, but he was the best thing about New Girl.

Enjoyed the first episode of New Girl, although probably 95% of that enjoyment was generated by Zooey who is THE dictionary definition of the word, CUTE.

it seemed a bit overly earnest, tbh. zooey is adorable but it seems like it's going to be quite predictable. the two white guys are a bit annoying, already.

I enjoyed New Girl as well, thought the cast was fine. Shame Wayan's Jr. is leaving, i chuckled at most of his scenes.

New Girl look like it might be ok, wil give it a couple more episodes. As for 2 broke girls, I only managed about 10 minutes and gave up on it.

I've dumped 2 Broke Girls too. Five minutes into the second episode it became clear that they hadn't learned anything from the mistakes of the pilot.

I've seen the pilot. Not calamitously awful, but not too promising either. I noticed during the credits for 2 Broke Girls that the main star of Whitney wrote the 2 Broke Girls episode (and created the show too according to IMDb). Doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

Same. It's like they knew they had Zooey so why bother with any comedy.

Compared to HE and HIMYM this has nothing but Zooey going for it.

Me too (giving it one more episode that is). The new guy is nowhere near as good as the original either.

New Girl is utter gash so far. 2 Broke Girls and Whitney are amusing enough.

i'm giving up on this, too. it just seems to be a response to happy endings, from another network.
