I don't get all the hate. Coach has been a great addition to the cast and I can see why they wanted him on the show. They do need to kill the running Schmidt/Cece post-break-up animosity. That stops the show dead in its tracks every time.

Agreed. They're going from quirky to stupid.

Anyone else tired of the cliche'd Thanksgiving episode where for whatever reason the typical Thanksgiving dinner/celebration is ruined and they scrounge to replace it with an inferior non-traditional one - but it doesn't matter because friends/family are what's most important anyway? I swear every fucking sitcom does this at some point.

This is how I feel. Even a bad episode of New Girl is still enjoyable to me. I'm with those that didn't really like this episode, but the characters are still fun enough for me to not feel like the ep was a total waste. There are always a couple of funny lines or scenes.

This one fell a little flat to me too. I don't notice any downward progression of the show or characters though, but then again I typically like Nick and Jess.

Jess has twenty minutes to decide if she should give-up teaching and take a new job, prompting the gang to recall how they all landed in their current professions in the all-new "Clavado En Un Bar" episode of NEW GIRL airing Tuesday, Jan. 7 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (NG-311) (TV-14 D, L)

I'm confused about what has happened to this show. Season 2 was so good. This episode, like most of this season, was a mess. Maybe they ran out of ideas.

This was pretty terrible

Season Three has been a gigantic mess.

Usually the flashback sequences are pretty funny, but this time it was just a whole lot of nothing in each sequence.

I liked this episode more than others in this thread, but it definitely was weak for what we know New Girl can do.

Not that this show needs dissection,but am I crazy or did the crew give Jess awful advice. Working at a museum for more money sounded like a great opportunity, and Jess would have had opportunities to teach in that environment in different ways if she really wanted to.

I did love the line about Tim Duncan though.

This episode almost felt like a "re-pilot".

The whole thing with Jess and Nick isn't working. As much as I loved Coach in the pilot, he isn't doing the show any favors either.

I like Damon Wayans Jr but I'm not sure if there's room for him in the gang, the stories are already all over the place.

I actually think Coach has been a good addition. Damon Wayans has obvious charisma. It's the principal characters that are letting the show down. As bad as Jess, Nick and Schmidt have been at times this year, I have no earthly idea what they are doing with Winston. Where is there left for that character to go?

The first season was ok, the second was fantastic and now this season really needs to pick up cause its been terrible so far. Im disappointed after such a strong second season.

It was so bad that I had trouble paying attention and don't even remember most of the episode.

They really need to right the ship, because I think they have plenty of good characters/actors to make this show as funny and good as it used to be.

Ratings have dipped to Dads level at this point. Aside from Mindy, all three Fox shows are pretty much on par ratings-wise.

Not like Fox will dump this. It still needs another year for syndication and can probably go on for a few more seasons.

Shipping Hope off to Friday probably hurt them a bit. It would have been a solid lead at 8 instead of Dads.

This season honestly has been a disaster, I think we stick around because we love the characters so much, but they have definitely lost their way.

New Girl is one more season away from syndication, so I'm guessing they will stick with it through year 4. Raising Hope's ratings are rock bottom so I don't see that coming.

Last year comedies were Fox's huge success. This year, its the return of the dramas.

Mindy is the only returning comedy....how is that a success?

Aside from sleepy Hollow all the other dramas failed.

Raising Hope, Mindy and New Girl all did decent last year.

Sleepy Hollow is a bona fide hit, and Almost Human looks like it is doing fairly well.

Also 24 is going to come back.

Raising Hope and Mindy did pretty bad. Hope only got renewed so it could hit enough episodes for syndication (it was shipped off to Fridays and doubled up) and Mindy was Fox saving face since all their other new comedies bombed.

Sleepy is a hit for Fox however it will have a solid 8 month dead zone since they won't order the back 9. Almost human is doing ratings lower then what Bones was doing...a show in its Eight Season. It's by no accounts doing fairly well. It's doing fairly bad. I'd be surprised if this got picked up for another Season. It's airing episodes out of order which is classic Fox for a show they don't have faith in.

24 coming back isn't anything. It's Fox realizing they have nothing. Glee is dead dead dead, X Factor is doing terrible and they effectively already canceled Enlisted and Now and Then. They are going to bring Bones back for another season because everything else is bombing hard.

Fox is having a terrible year. All the networks are except CW which is seeing slight increases (of course they are hardly a major network and they are so low anyway).

Maybe Fox can bring back House....

I didn't have any problems with this episode, I thought most of it was decently funny. Jess and Nick being together had virtually no impact on this episode.
