Whee! Our favorite new show of the fall finally premiered! And some other show did, too!

Viewers finally got their taste of Zooey Deschanel's adorkable* new comedy New Girl and while we're totally not biased, if you didn't love it, you're basically dead inside. Don't blame us, blame science. (*Take a shot every time New Girl and/or Zooey is described as "adorkable.")

CBS' new procedural Unforgettable, starring Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh, also premiered tonight, and who doesn't love those two solving crimes together?

So did you lurve New Girl as much as we do? And can Unforgettable live up to its lofty title?


From creator Liz Meriwether (who is totally Jess in real life!), New Girl centers round Deschanel's Jess, a newly single and adorkable (drink!) geek who moves in with three (awesome) guys after an embarrassing breakup. Things we love about Zooey's Jess? Um, where do we begin? She's hilarious, dorky, thinks overalls are appropriate for a date and is not afraid to make an ass out of herself.

You've also met the three guys, played by Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr., who moves out after the pilot because he has to head back to one of our favorite comedies on TV: ABC's Happy Endings. Though we loved Coach, we ain't even mad. You might as well take the Happy out of Happy Endings if Brad ever left. (Lamorne Morris will be introduced in the second episode.) Do you already have a favorite guy? And don't you want to own a douchebag jar now?!

Unforgettable centers on Carrie Wells (Montgomery), a former cop who can't forget anything (Oh hi, hyperthymesia!) and is haunted by a loved one's murder. Walsh is her ex-partner, in more ways than one. Carrie comes back to the force after her neighbor is murdered and the only way to solve the crime is to utilize her gift. While it's nothing new, CBS has a proven track record with crime dramas, so Unforgettable might not be forgotten right away.

While we scamper off to go watch Dirty Dancing and fantasize about three men serenading us with "Time of My Life," vote in our Save It or Sink It polls and then head on over to the comments to debate with other TV watchers! Go on!
