You love Max Greenfield, the bro-tastic dandy behind New Girl‘s Schmidt, but you hate those icky TV spots for Axe products. How, then, can you enjoy Greenfield’s new web series, a Forgetting Sarah Marshall riff that doubles as part of Axe’s new “Susan Glenn” campaign?

Haven’t been yet”), and eight other things he likes in the most Schmidt-y way possible. He explains the difference between a throw and a blanket. He reveals that he has a tortoise shell iPhone case. I could not make this up if I tried.
Though it actually launched on Oct. 9, 1986, Fox is celebrating its 25th anniversary this weekend with a primetime extravaganza featuring such stars of yesteryear as Calista Flockhart, Gabrielle Carteris, Ian Ziering, and David Faustino. Before tomorrow night’s broadcast, we thought it appropriate to take a look back at how the network has changed the pop culture landscape in the last quarter century. READ FULL STORY
