Season 6 of “New Girl” (finally!) starts tonight and we’re celebrating by paying homage to the loft’s resident Jew, Schmidt.
Apologies for playing favorites, but out of all of the crew, we would definitely most want to co-opt him as our roommate. Driving moccasins and all.
He’ll give it to you straight.
He has no patience for sports.
He’ll tell you when you wear something unflattering.
He’d definitely hang out with you if you’re lonely on Christmas Eve.
You can take him to any Jewish dating event.
And he’ll tell you who to avoid.
He refuses to let you wallow.
But if you do need to wallow, he’s right there with you.
He makes for an excellent dance partner.
He tells you how he really feels.
He’s there for you with relationship advice.
He can be surprisingly romantic.
Because in the end he cares.
Like, really, really cares.
Yes, Schmidty. You certainly are.
TV Guide Magazine’s annual survey of star salaries is out and one thing is clear — Jon Stewart’s high ratings translate into dollars.
According to the survey, Stewart tops the late night bracket, earning between $25 and $30 million a year. In previous years, Jay Leno and David Letterman had monopoly over the honor — no more. Leno took a nearly $10 million pay cut last year, putting him down in the $20 million range. Letterman is also in the $20 million ballpark after the license fee paid by CBS to his production company, Worldwide Pants, was reduced.
Judy Sheindlin (Judge Judy), is the highest paid television personality ever, earning a reported $47 million a year.
Jason Segel and Max Greenfield made the list in Comedy, with a cool $225,000 per episode for “How I Met Your Mother,” and $75,000 for “New Girl,” respectively. Ashton Kutcher (honorary Jew), is the highest paid actor in prime time with $750,000 an episode for “Two and a Half Men.”
Other members of the tribe included Andy Cohen ($2 million a year for “Watch What Happens Live”) and Howard Stern ($15 million a year for “America’s Got Talent”).
For the full list, pick up the August 22nd issue of TV Guide.
If you’ve ever watched “New Girl,” the fact that Max Greenfield does a killer Vanilla Ice impression should come as no surprise. His lovable schlemiel character, Schmidt, would be proud.
For reasons unknown to humanity, Greenfield and Paul Scheer (“The League”) decided to reenact a classic Vanilla Ice and Arsenio Hall interview for the “ArScheerio Paul Show”, Scheer’s series re-imagining episodes of the “The Arsenio Hall Show.”
Needless to say, it’s worth watching, if only to stare at Greenfield’s American/British flag leather jacket and streaked hair.
So many mensches, so little time.
To save you the trouble of thinking about it too hard, Buzzfeed has nicely put together “The Official Ranking Of The 51 Hottest Jewish Men In Hollywood”. Whether they’re Jewish in real life, or play a member of the tribe on TV, these men are all prime hubby material.
Included in the rundown are Adam Brody (#1, goes without saying), Liev Schrieber (#3), James Franco (#4), Jake Gyllenhaal (#5), Andrew Garfield (#8), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (#10), Gabriel Macht (#11 — you know him as Harvey Specter from “Suits”), Jason Schwartzmann (#13), Paul Rudd (#15) and Max Greenfield (#18).

Who knew Bar Refaeli’s outré Super Bowl ad for Go Daddy would have such pucker power? HuffPo ran a piece on all the lucky guys the supermodel has smooched with, as well as another on nerdy Jesse Heiman who got to play tonsil hockey with her in the commercial. Hillel at Stanford University got in on the sexy action, too, by using an image from the televised spot to advertise its upcoming Birthright Israel trip.
Bar Refaeli’s ex-boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio was seen last Friday goofing around in a Miami nightclub with buddies Jonah Hill, Gerard Butler, Bradley Cooper, and Mel Gibson (yes, Mel Gibson).

And in our last Super Bowl weekend-relate item, if Bar Refaeli’s Go Daddy ad wasn’t sexy enough for you, there’s this “2 Broke Girls” promo featuring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs pole dancing.
