    Hart, New Girl
    Does any

    • B says:

      Does anyone think Brenda Song’s acting was better on Scandal than it is on New Girl? Because I totally think it is and it’s maddening because Scandal is so serious that I can’t believe London Tipton can do it at all and excel in it better than in a quirky, fun show like New Girl.

    I would watch the Amanda Knox interview, but I am not going to give up a new episode of Grimm to see it. Now next week, when Body of Proof returns, will be difficult. lol
