Great news for all you Damon Wayans Jr. fans who were worried that Coach’s return on New Girl last night was overshadowed by Taye Diggs’ thigh. (And it was. Oh it was.)
But yes, where was I? Oh yes, good news, Coach is staying around indefinitely. Not sure whether or not he’ll be moving into Schmidt’s empty room, but the official word is that Damon Wayans Jr. will be in every episode until the end of the season. They’re keeping Wayans as a guest star instead of promoting him to series regular because he has a pilot of his own in development at FOX. Man, between Wayans and Pally that network is doing right buy the homeless Happy Endings cast. I believe now is the appropriate time for a brother to commence his twirling.
By the way, New Girl had a huge spike in ratings last night. I would love love love to attribute that to Damon Wayans Jr. but, ah, well…
