I am so looking forward to this show! The pilot is up on hulu (it hasn't hit tv yet), and it's super cute! It's only up for a few more days- I don't know which day it premieres on tv.

I'm getting a kick out of it because she is so much like me! It's uncanny!

I thought the show has a lot of potential! There are some things that irk me about it, but it's nothing that can't be worked through in half a season. Plus I'm a sucker for all things Deschanel.

I could only get halfway through the pilot because Zooey Deschanel irritates the crepe out of me, but it has Leo from Veronica Mars!

It's ok to be a little irritating when you're that hot.

I love Zooey Deschanel. She can't act for anything, and The Happening scarred me for life, but she's sooo pretty, and all of her clothes are so cute.

I am not sold yet after watching the first episode. So far everybody is trying way too hard BUT there were moments that I really liked and I will give it two more chances.

I did like the douche jar a lot! And my favourite so far is Coach.

Coach was recast after the pilot, unfortunately, because that actor is on another show that was unexpectedly picked up for a second season.

I thought it was pretty cute. Not stellar, but better than most sitcoms on TV, for sure.

The only reason I wanted to watch was Damon Wayans Jr. (Coach). So...I'll give the pilot a shot and the next episode. The second episode will have to be really good for me to keep watching.

It's seriously weirding me out that Damon Wayans has a son almost as old as I am. It's making me feel ancient.

I might give it another chance since there is nothing else that I watch at that time, but I was pretty meh about the pilot.

+1 Too cutsey. It's like they surveyed modcloth shoppers and made a show about the composite person.

It's on my TV viewing spreadsheet as a possibility for that time slot. It conflicts with Ringer, though. So, I'll probably just check it out on Hulu to see if it's DVD worthy.

I just love a list. I don't watch a lot of TV, but I do like to weigh my options at the beginning of each season.

I meant DVR worthy, oops!

i thought the pilot was cute. i'll probably watch it on hulu. i don't think it's good enough for me to sit down and watch it tuesday night or whenever.

It was ok. She was putting that voice on right? Because I don't remember her sounding like that when she was a guest on Top Chef.

I'm sad that Damon won't be back in ep 2 but I do love that Leo from VMars is in it :D

haha.

I think she's adorable and I didn't find her annoying in this. I like that she was believably super awkward. It reminds me of what Natalie Portman was going for and totally failed at in Garden State

If you don't like Zooey Deschanel already, you probably won't like this show. I think she's cute, but it might as well be called We Wanted Zooey Deschanel To Play Herself In A Sitcom.

I just watched the pilot last night and was actually really surprised I liked it so much! I used to love Zooey, but she's gotten pretty annoying over the last few years so I was expecting to hate the fork out of this show....but I actually found myself laughing out loud a lot of the time...especially at some of Zooey's deliveries.

So bummed Coach is being recast though. I loved the shopping bit between him and Zooey! "I bought jeggings.." "...WHO CARES"

Thanks for that! I assumed that "Happy Endings" had been cancelled when I saw the promos for "New Girl." I really like HE and am glad that DWJr. is sticking with it. I'm probably gonna watch NG a few more times to decide if it's worth sticking with...
