Today on KSR: Good-Bye, New Girl


Jennifer Clasen | Fox

After seven seasons and almost 150 episodes, Jessica Day and the rest of the gang will move out of loft 4D.  The two-part series finale begins tonight at 9:00 on Fox.

Starring Zooey Deschanel, what made the ensemble comedy one of the funniest shows on television is that there was no star.  At its height, you could make a sound argument that the funniest character was Schmidt, Nick, Winston or Jess (but if you made me choose, I’d roll with Winston, mostly for the bird shirts).

A show that was not afraid to show its sweet-side, slap-stick comedy always remained at its heart.  It often manifested in a fight, or the drinking game True Americans, a game that will likely cause physical harm if you try to play at home.  To see its more clever comedic side, look no further than Schmidt’s Douchebag Jar, an item that perfectly symbolizes the show’s sweet silliness.

Like all “coming of age” shows starring people in their mid-20s, it was time to end New Girl, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be a little sad when its run ends tonight.  One of my top five favorite shows, if you’ve never given it a try, it’s not too late to hop on the bandwagon with Netflix.

The Cats Land a Quarterback

Last night Eddie Gran found a quarterback for his 2019 recruiting class.  Nik Scalzo committed to Kentucky over Illinois, UNLV and a handful of Ivy League schools.  A three-star prospect, he’s ranked by 247 Sports as the No. 16 dual-threat quarterback in America.

His 5’11” size scared off many of the big schools, but Darin Hinshaw saw a winner.  Playing in Broward County, Florida, home to arguably the best high school football in America, he threw for more than 2,000 yards as a sophomore and a junior.  In the camp circuit, he quarterbacked the same 7-on-7 team Teddy Bridgewater used to lead to an Adidas National Championship. If you compared him to Baker Mayfield, he would not mind.

Will Sports Gambling Happen in Kentucky?

The Supreme Court opened the floodgates for states to legalize sports gambling.  New Jersey, West Virginia and Mississippi are just a few that are already acting.  Meanwhile in Kentucky, crickets.  Public sentiment is overwhelmingly in favor of bringing sports books to the Commonwealth, but will politicians act?  To use my mother’s advice, I will expect the worst and hope for the best.

NBA Draft Lottery

Tonight we will discover who is picking where in the 2018 NBA Draft.  De’Aaron Fox will represent the Sacramento Kings when the action begins tonight at 7:30 on ESPN (even though we will not know the final order until about 8:30).

The Warriors are going to win The NBA Finals

The Houston Rockets had everything set up for success against the Golden State Warriors, and still lost by double digits.  James Harden scored 41 points, yet the Rockets weren’t even within striking range in the game’s final five minutes.  The Warriors are just too great.  I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Don’t Laugh Too Hard

If you think it’s funny the first time around, un-mute the 10-second clip.

    Oh my goodness. I’m still laughing at that tennis video. That was one of the greatest things I’ve seen in a long time.

      That was awesome! The young fella’s lucky he was not concussed.

    Winston was, without a doubt, the funniest character on the show.
