Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, New Girl


It is a coincidence that one great sitcom just ended as another just solidified itself as one of the best currently on TV?

This past week was a doozy on the small screen with Tina Fey and 30 Rock closing out seven seasons of comedy gold with a laughter- and tear-inducing final four, and New Girl taking a huge risk by finally having Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) hookup. (Yes, we still get chills just thinking of their first kiss, which was the definition of epic.) On the drama side of things, The Vampire Diaries killed off yet another character and Scandal finally showed its hand, setting up next week's episode that is set to change everything.

Plus, Steven Tyler auditioned for American Idol and Tierra the Terrible continued to be terrible on The Bachelor.
