All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

Fox's adorkable comedy New Girl returned from its first year a smarter, funnier and all-around better show.

Television Without Pity

Overall, "Elaine's Big Day" is a very good finale to what has been an exceptional second season of New Girl, and we should await the third season with baited breath.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

New Girl is the rare mainstream sitcom that's exceedingly at ease in discussing race, largely because it acknowledges the characters' well-meaning, flawed views, and plays them for eye rolls and laughs.

Funny though it can be, New Girl is going nowhere.
