We love that this week’s New Girl episode was basically a love letter to Schmidt’s beautiful suits, what with their slim lines and emaciated ties. It goes without saying that said suits are destroyed in a bathtub accident, but we’re sure Schmidt will be back in his former sartorial glory soon. He spent all that time on his Suit Folder, after all! This way he just has to replace every…single…item…
For some reason, being on a hit comedy series does not necessarily prepare you to be the host of an awards show — at least that’s what New Girl’s Lamorne Morris fears when he and co-stars Jake Johnson and Max Greenfield host the Do Something Awards, which air tonight on VH1 at 9 p.m. ET.
“I’m not gonna lie, I might go to the bathroom, like, on myself, onstage,” Morris told VH1’s Kate Spencer.
“I’ll give you 500 bucks if you do it during the show,” Johnson offered.
“500 bucks is not enough,” Morris said. “You would legitimately have to give me everything you’re being paid and what you’re being paid, double it, and then I’d do it.”
Well, that would make for a very different kind of show, wouldn’t it?
Like the rest of us, the guys were excited about all the celebrities set to appear — from Justin Bieber to their own castmate Zooey Deschanel. But Greenfield saw a big opportunity with one particular guest:
“We’ll be hosting — will we also be auditioning for Ben Affleck?” he asked. Oh, we certainly hope so. Or even vice versa — Affleck would make a great fling for Jess!

You should be very excited to watch the Do Something Awards next Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET. Besides the fact that it’s a nice chance to see celebrities celebrated for more than just who they’re dating or what they starred in, the show is hosted by three of the most charming men on TV these days, New Girl stars Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield and Lamorne Morris. And when VH1 News’ Kate Spencer had a chance to sit down with the guys on recently, she couldn’t resist to make this very astute observation about the will-they-or-won’t-they dynamic of Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Johnson): They are just like Niles and Daphne from Frasier.
“Niles and Daphne is a great reference! Yeah, but I think I’m a little bit more masculine than Niles. No disrespect to Niles,” Johnson responded. Though he was quick to add: “Do not compare Zooey Deschanel to Daphne. You can call me Niles.”
