Favorite New Fall Show Poll – New Girl

I'm not the sort that gravitates toward the standard weekly comedy. But I've been taken in by 'New Girl' ... and so will you.


This week, we at CliqueClack are asking you to vote for your favorite new fall shows to watch and for those that you would recommend to others. The winter hiatus is the perfect time to catch up on new shows you didn’t initially watch. Check out our previous write-ups for Up All Night, RevengeAmerican Horror Story, and Homeland, now check why Michael picked New Girl!

I have several reasons you should give New Girl a whirl:

  • The preview post I prattled about (Zooey Deschanel wasn’t who she was made out to be in the original promo spots for the series)
  • The premiere of the show in which my preconceived notions about it faded in the distance (it wasn’t what I expected.)
  • The writing (it’s pretty much been top notch throughout.)
  • The interaction between Jess’ roommates … not to mention between she and Nick and Schmidt and Winston (the banter between Jess’ roommates is always a winner when it happens.)
  • The quotations from each and every one of the terrific cast (there are always — yes, always — quotable quotes in each New Girl episode. Oft times there are so many you just can’t catch ‘em all.)

Look: I’m not one for weekly comedies. I don’t get The Big Bang Theory … I’ve tried to find the twist in 2 Broke GirlsTwo and a Half Men has left me perplexed with the introduction of Walden Schmidt … and I’ven’t seen an episode of Community, Parks and Recreation or any other half hour weekly to save my life. And I’m not planning on it, either.

But this show? New Girl? It’s won me over very, very quickly. Yes, me … someone who doesn’t go in for this kind of stuff. The guy who hasn’t seen a single episode of Seinfeld. Who’s never watched Cheers. M*A*S*H is the last comedy I remember watching with any real interest.

So, the way I see it? I took a huge chance signing up to review this show on CliqueClack. It was a huge chance that happened to pan out. I don’t regret it one bit.

Give it a go if you haven’t yet. If it can turn my curmudgeonly heart around to actually enjoy a weekly comedy, think about what it can do for you … someone who actually enjoys weekly comedies.

You can vote up to ONCE a day for 3 shows. The poll closes on Sunday, 12/4 at Midnight ET.

If you can choose between 1 and 3 shows and vote once a day and the result is shown as a percentage the significance of this poll should hover right around 0. 0% if you want.

Let me give you an example:

Viewer A just likes one show. Everything else pales in comparison. He just gives Show 1 one vote and forfeits his other two votes.

Viewer B likes four new shows. She votes for Show 2, 3 and 4 today and comes back tomorrow and votes for show 3 and 2 again and because it’s a wash between show 4 and 5, she votes for show 5 on day two.

All this does is, you got it right, generate PIs. Nothing more.

You could at least try a bit harder at concealing the real goal of the poll.

But …

… if we concealed the true goal of the poll, you wouldn’t have anything to complain about, Sebastian

You really think I wouldn’t find anything to complain about if you’d post a poll that has some statistical meaning?

Come on. You know me better than that :-D
