THE NEW GIRL

FOX Tuesday, at 900 ET

 PTC Summary:

New Girl

(Fox/Sitcom)

9:00 p.m. (ET) Tuesday

Production Companies: Meriwether Productions, Chernin Entertainment, 20th Century Fox Television

Producers: Liz Meriwether, Jake Kasdan, Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Dave Finkel, Brett Baer

Creator: Liz Meriwether

Season three finds Nick and Jesse forging ahead with their complicated relationship after finally admitting that they want to be with each other. However, their close friendship with the other roommates of the loft – Schmidt and Winston – threatens to strain their budding romance. Meanwhile, Schmidt digs himself deeper into a looming disaster: he can’t muster the strength to reject either Cece or Elizabeth, so he ends up juggling relationships with both women.

Sex is the main problem with this show, with many prolonged and explicit discussions about it. For example, last season, Winston spent an entire episode in a frantic search for a condom after he leaves his wallet  at his girlfriend’s apartment. Language is also problematic, with words like “douchebag” used regularly. A running joke in the first season involved a “Douche Bag” jar, which Schmidt pays into whenever he says something “douche-y.” Violence is not a problem for the program.

New Girl is not recommended for viewers under age 14.
