FOX has ordered 11 additional episodes of New Girl, bringing the series to a 24-episode season order, the network announced today.
New Girl premiered as FOX’s highest-rated fall sitcom debut in 10 years. FOX claims it is the number one rated Tuesday series among adults 18-49 and the season's number one series among adults 18-34. It is not, however, drawing the ratings that NCIS does on Tuesday nights overall.
After next Tuesday's episode (October 4th, 9 p.m.) two subsequent episodes of New Girl will air at special times, Wednesday, October 12th (9:30-10:00 p.m.) and Tuesday, October 18th, 9:30 p.m.
Among upcoming guest stars on the show is Justin Long (“Live Free & Die Hard,” “Going The Distance”), in the role of a music teacher who catches the eye of Jess (Zooey Deschanel).
