LOL Video: Regis Wants New Girl's Schmidt Dead

The set-up: Reege has boarded, unsolicited, the New Girl writing team for Season 2, and his first order of business is to kill off Max Greenfield’s fan-fave character of Schmidt. Philbin, though, also has other ideas for the show — “even” including storylines for Winston, he proclaims. But mainly, he wants Schmidt snuffed. Pronto.
