Fall TV Twist: New Girl Gone 'Til November

Fox is hoping that when it comes to the New Girl, absence will make your heart grow even fonder.

Not long after making the breakout comedy the first freshman series to get a full-season pick-up, Fox rejiggered its October schedule in such a way that Zooey Deschanel and friends will not been seen again until Tuesday, Nov. 1.

The first episode to be bumped is a special Wednesday airing that was set for this week.

All told, New Girl will be benched by expanded installments of The X Factor (where the judges rounds are said to be quite entertaining and deserving of extra minutes), and MLB playoffs/World Series coverage.

This not-at-all-nectar news was first reported by The Futon Critic.
