(The?) New Girl
- It was announced as The New Girl (see the references), but it's currently on Fox's website as New Girl (working title). I'll move it for now, title may still change though, but we can move it again if that's the case. Xeworlebi (talk) 20:29, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
Which is it?
can someone explain why coach returns from somewhere if he was already there in the pilot episode? it's really confusing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:42, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
- It's less confusing if you notice that it is two different black guys. Both in term of character and actors. :rolleyes: — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:44, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
- I have to agree with you. The recent mass additions to the article (including the "Critics" section you mention, the Plot, and parts of Production) are very poorly written. Grammar and punctuation issues, lack of sources, lots of vague statements, etc. I have removed some unsourced material, but there is more to be done. Apparently, this page appears to be some sort of "group assignment". --Logical Fuzz (talk) 21:56, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Schmidt deserves his own page
I think of all the characters on the show, Schmidt has become the most evolved. He has gone beyond the series, even having his own dating service video on YouTube, and his book "The Douche Journals" was published before the season premiere. - Jasonbres (talk) 16:15, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
Cece's full name was revealed to be Cecelia Park in "Table 34" (season 2: episode 16), but from the beginning of the series, it has been Cece Meyers. Should it be changed? -- CollisionCourse (talk) 08:52, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
Even if the series happens in one of the largest latino (hispanic) cities in the world (the largest one outside Latin America or Spain), there are no latino characters. Racism? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:15, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
- Implicit racism, sure. It's hardly unique to New Girl, though. I don't have a source offhand, but I've read about how Law & Order portrays a much whiter New York than the real one. --BDD (talk) 16:48, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
International broadcast section
I am going to remove the international broadcast section, last included here. It seems the show airs almost everywhere now, so the list in itself is nothing special (lacking noteworthiness). The list overwhelms the article (editoriability). How I Met Your Mother doesn't have such a list either, probably for the same reasons (see talk page). I personally don't mind mentioning some English-speaking countries, but IMO the (full) list has to go. – sgeureka t•c 11:54, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
Major article expansion ahead
Season 3 is about to start, so I expect this article to get more interest from readers soon, possibly from editors as well. I have started collecting masses of information in my userspace in order to expand this article significantly. However, I am about to go on vacation without internet access and will work offline on the article instead. Just for everyone's information so that we can avoid duplicate or lost work. – sgeureka t•c 14:40, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Inclusion of Wayans/Coach in the Main cast list
creation Even with the spun-off character list, the article is currently 115 kB, of which 46 kB are "readable prose size". Per WP:TOOBIG, the article is near "> 50 kB: May need to be divided (likelihood goes up with size)". The likeliest spin-off subjects are Nick and Jess (their section already overwhelms the article, but as the most discussed topic by media outlets, this is not surprising) and the Awards table. I am in no hurry to split both them off right now, but with the show very likely to be renewed for a fourth season soon, I want to ask others for input what should be done (agreement, opposion, or other ideas). – sgeureka t•c 11:39, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
I think the seven(?) bar theme song (which is often truncated further) is unusual enough to merit a little discussion in the article. I'm guessing it was supposed to be one of Jess's dorky improvised songs, with a background that she's fantasized involving her roommates--but while the producers might know, I'm just speculating. I can't remember whether Wayans appears in the theme to the pilot, but that might be worth noting too. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:00, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
Is this significant amount to be included into the New Girl article? In which these sources say that the creators of New Girl had blatantly ripped off from the show Square One, as they proclaimed. The creators of Square One, Stephanie Counts and Shari Gold, claimed that there are "so numerous and specific that the independent creation was obviously impossible."

- There needs to be a subheading based on the entire plagiarism case. It should specifically be mentioned that the plaintiffs were offered money to settle out of court. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 16:13, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
- At this time, the article gives this topic two sentences, but I feel a subheading might give this lawsuit WP:UNDUE weight. This was big news for a week in January, and we haven't heard anything since then. It's entirely possible the thing will be settled out of court and we'll never hear about it again. As overwhelming the evidence might appear at first, the only real headscratcher (IIRC) is that Spencer thing; the rest looks like a fringe theorist illustrating patterns. Also, the law firm appears to be really minor, so I doubt any real weight behind it. – sgeureka t•c 09:41, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
If it's settled out of court, it'll be mentioned in due course. I'm pretty sure of that. I support a subheading.
Plans for the article
Now that the New Girl TV season is over, here's what I plan to do with the article in the upcoming weeks:
- I have enough secondary information to start sections about costume&make-up and the opening titles.
- The loft dynamics section is terribly outdated with the Coach developments and room-shuffling.
- The media interest in Nick&Jess seems as strong as ever, regardless of if they're a couple or not, so it's seems sensible and necessary to spin out their section like planned.
- The reception section is too long. There is too much info about the pilot. Some stuff on Nick&Jess can be moved to their subarticle in the future. Maybe Schmidt or Schmidt&Cece need their own subarticle as well? (I am not sure.) Anyway, I hope to find and use more reviews that focus on whole seasons instead of single episodes.
- I don't know how smart it was too combine "Broadcast and ratings". I may split it again, maybe.
