Justin Long is 'New Girl's' new love interest

Though many "New Girl" fans might like to see Jess get together with her roommate, Nick, that probably isn't happening anytime soon.

Instead, show creator Liz Meriwether is pairing up Zooey Deschanel's character with a fellow music teacher, Justin Long, an actor who almost seems born to play Jess's boyfriend.

"He’s a music teacher at her school, and whatever the male form of 'adorkable' is," as Meriwether described him to reporters on Monday.

NBC puts 'Community' on hiatus

That sound you heard yesterday afternoon was countless "Community" fans furiously tweeting their outrage after NBC released its 2012 midseason schedule with the critically acclaimed comedy conspicuously absent. In its place, "30 Rock" will return on January 12.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources with the network said it "will return at a later date," along with new series "Prime Suspect," which is being shelved in favor of "The Firm," starting on January 12.

Some fans on Twitter immediately assumed the worst, fearing the show was canceled or at least on the verge of cancellation. Hashtags referencing lines from the show, like "#sixseasonsandamovie", "#savegreendale" and "#savecommunity" were also popular.

'Sesame Street' asks: Have you seen this man?

The producers of "Sesame Street" have looked high and low, and now they're turning to the Internet.

The show is searching for the original actor who played the character of Gordon 42 years ago. Roscoe Orman is best known as playing that role since the show's sixth season. Two other actors played Gordon in the early years, but this particular unknown man only played Gordon in the landmark children's series' unaired pilot.

"Sesame Street" has posted everything they know, including a clip of the unknown gentleman in the pilot. Unfortunately, even some of his fellow actors from that pilot, such as Big Bird actor Carroll Spinney, don't recall who he is.

Things go from bad to worse on 'Walking Dead'

As if having a missing child, another shot and a baby on the way in the midst of a zombie apocalypse wasn't enough for our group of survivors to deal with, Sunday night's episode made the situation that much worse.

First, you had the aforementioned pregnancy, which Lori has yet to tell Rick about (though Glenn knows, having picked up the pregnancy test for her, and is sworn to secrecy).

Then, the tension between Rick and Shane nearly came to a head as the two argued while searching for Sophia, as Shane is ready to call off the search.

A wrinkle in time on 'Fringe'

A wrinkle in time on 'Fringe'

Peter Bishop is back, but that doesn't mean that all is right with the world now. On the contrary, in fact.

Friday night's episode of "Fringe" seemed to explain all of the time paradoxes we have been seeing this season, both before and after Peter's sudden arrival in this new timeline.

An engineer named Raymond had created a time bubble, which had time repeating over and over again in a small area around his house. This way, he could keep his professor wife, Kate, the way she was before she suffered from Alzheimer's. The result was that it was constantly the same day in 2007 in their home (in fact, it was the day after the Boston Red Sox won the World Series).

Joshua Gomez, 'Chuck's' new top spy

When Joshua Gomez was told at the end of last season that big changes were afoot for his character, Morgan, on "Chuck," he didn't know what to expect.

As Gomez described the scene to reporters on Thursday, "Chris Fedak, one of the co-creators, went down on the set and we were just kind of talking...and he was like, you know, have you heard about [the season finale] yet? And I said no. And he was like, 'Oh, I’m going to be really interested to see what you think.' And I was like, 'Oh boy, I’m dead.'"

When Gomez read the script, "you get to the last page [where Morgan said] 'I know kung fu,' and it was like, you’ve got to be kidding me. This is insanity, I’m a dead man."

Since that moment, Chuck's best friend has had the Intersect – the entire database of CIA knowledge, along with some kung fu skills, to boot – while Chuck himself has had to work on being a spy with no special powers.
