She's been here for like three years.

We reported a few months ago that Prince would be appearing in a guest spot on The New Girl, a news story so mildly surprising that it could only come from Prince himself, master of the mild surprise.

Anyway, Prince followed through on his promise, as this production still would indicate. He’s on the set of New Girl, and he looks like Prince. The photo itself is grainy enough that it looks like it could be Photoshopped, but TV Guide ran the photo, and, just like my tattoo says, if it’s good enough for TV Guide, it’s good enough for me.

The Prince episode will air February 2nd, immediately after the Super Bowl, so millions of drunk, exhausted Americans can watch the episode, go “Hey. It’s Prince,” then get sad that they have work tomorrow.

America.

Here’s the pic:

Fall TV Tips: The Girl Sitcoms http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/fall-tv-tips-the-girl-sitcoms/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/fall-tv-tips-the-girl-sitcoms/#comments Tue, 02 Aug 2011 16:52:16 +0000 Skippy http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=222979 Who says girls can't be funny? Well, at least some of them.

Last week, I ran-down this fall’s guy sitcoms, so this time around we’ll take a look at the chick side of things. And for once, the new shows starring the gals look more promising than the offering from the guy-centered sitcoms. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Let’s have a look…

WATCH IT:

The New Girl (FOX), Premieres Tuesday, 9/20 at 9 pm


This may not be the obvious pick since FOX sitcoms are generally not the strongest and NBC has been shoving Whitney down our throats like crazy, but don’t be fooled by the Peacock’s aggressive marketing campaign.

“The New Girl” stars Zooey Deschanel as a woman who splits with her boyfriend and then becomes a roommate with three dudes. Zooey Deschanel is great to watch and the comedy in this mostly comes from the relationship she has with her new roomies. I’m thinking this may be a slow starter — like last season’s Raising Hope — and then shape up to be a pretty decent show.

SKIP IT:

Whitney (NBC), Premieres Thursday, 9/22 at 9:30 pm (ET)


I might soon be eating my words on this one, but I say don’t even bother with this. Sure, Cummings is hot (just insert your own joke at this point), she does have some occasional funny stuff, but must she scream every line at us? To me, this show is going to be like her act — funny for the first few minutes, then it’s just loud repetition.

But if you do want to tune in — the mute button is recommended — you’ll be watching Cummings starring as a chick living with her boyfriend and together they learn to deal with being unmarried, their home life, outside relationships and all that crap. This show will probably make it, but I won’t be watching.

THE REST:

2 Broke Girls (CBS), Premieres Monday, 9/19 at 9:30 pm


I like Kat Dennings and her “I could give a shit” approach to comedy and acting and this show looks kind of entertaining. It stars Dennings and another chick none of you know as waitresses in a diner. They are polar opposites, but form a buddy comedy-style friendship and decide to go into business together. Nothing ground breaking, but there is a laugh or two to be had.

Suburgatory (ABC), Premieres Wednesday, 9/28 at 8:30 pm


I loved some of the cast, but when they are in a show centered around a teen from the city that makes a move to the suburbs, I probably don’t need to say anything further. I’d rather read a book. And I never read.

UPDATE: FOX is going to be releasing some clips in the next hour or so, so watch this space if you’re interested.

Everyone hates summer. We’re forced out of our homes by reruns on TV, only to be assaulted by bright sunlight, abrasively green grass, and painfully hot sand. Thankfully, there’s an end in sight to the awful onslaught of summer, as evidenced by FOX’s fall schedule. Here is the darkness at the end of the painfully bright tunnel:

Monday: “Terra Nova,” the impressively ambitious show with dinosaurs or something at 8 PM, followed by “House” at 9 PM.

Tuesday: Some show called”Glee” at 8 PM, followed by the new “The New Girl” with Zooey Deschanel at 9, then “Raising Hope” at 9:30.

Wednesday: “The X-Factor,” which is different from “American Idol” in dozens of ways, starts at 8 PM. Then it’s “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” with Jamie Pressly at 9:30. That’s right, “The X-Factor” is on for an hour and a half.

Thursday: The evening starts at 8 PM with the results show of “The X-Factor,” which mercifully is only an hour long. Then after that it’s “Bones” at 9.

Friday: “Kitchen Nightmares” at 8 PM followed by”Fringe” at 9. That’s why it’s the most popular TV night of the week!

Saturday: “Cops” is inexplicably still on the air at 8 PM, followed by reruns and “occasional” “America’s Most Wanted” after that at 9.

Sunday: It’s Sunday night animation, starting whenever all that football stuff is over -”The Cleveland Show,”"The Simpsons,” a new show from Jonah Hill called “Allen Gregory,”"Family Guy,” and “American Dad.”

Well, there you have it. Keep this in mind as you struggle to make it through another punishing summer. And remember, you can always watch reruns. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Fox Likes J.J. Abrams And Zoey Deschanel, Christian Slater Not So Much http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/fox-likes-j-j-abrams-and-zoey-deschanel-christian-slater-not-so-much/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/fox-likes-j-j-abrams-and-zoey-deschanel-christian-slater-not-so-much/#comments Wed, 11 May 2011 04:56:07 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211510 The upfronts are coming up, so Fox executives are pressing the "Greenlight" and "Dump Unceremoniously" buttons with wild abandon.

The upfronts are coming up, so Fox executives are pressing the “Greenlight” and “Dump Unceremoniously” buttons with wild abandon, before presenting their 2011-12 schedule to advertisers. Here’s what’s cancelled and what’s gladcelled (picked up for series):

- The new J. J. Abrams series “Alcatraz” has officially been greenlit, because Fox needs another beloved, expensive, poorly-rated mystery drama from Abrams right away. The story follows a team of investigators trying to figure out why 1960s prisoners are re-appearing in Alcatraz. Hint: Sideways Universes.

- Also picked up is a “Bones” spin-off called “Finder.” The series stars Geoff Stults as a military-trained “finder” of missing items and persons in Florida. Hint: “Lost and Found” boxes.

- “Human Target” was targeted for cancellation, and subsequently got hit with the dreaded cancellation missile.

- “Breaking In” did just that with strong initial ratings, but the Christian Slater comedy will not make it to season 2.

- “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” is apparently liked, not hated, by Fox executives. They picked up the new Jaime Pressly comedy series.

- “The Chicago Code” has been decoded. It reads: “cancelled.”

- “Traffic Light” got the dreaded red “cancellation” light, not the green one.

- Zooey Deschanel will star in “The New Girl,” a single camera comedy about a teacher who gets dumped. Like all girls who get dumped in movies and TV shows, Deschanel’s quirky teacher character will have to navigate the wacky world… of dating. She’ll do so with her three new dude roommates: “the cynic, the player and the man-child.” Setting my TiVO to “destroy.”

- As I reported earlier, the “House” party continues with season 8.
