Schmidt shakes his groove thang in weekend-starting 'New Girl' Gifgasm -- EXCLUSIVE

Putting the “GIF” in TGIF, Fox just launched a “Gettin’ Schmidty Wit It” microsite dedicated to television’s reigning endearing d-bag. You’ll want to check out this gloriously silly tribute to Schmidt (Max Greenfield), who shakes what his mama gave him to a kicky tune that’s guaranteed to be “Shakalak”-ing through your head ’til at least Tuesday at 9 p.m., when New Girl‘s third episode of the season airs.

As you can see from the image above, Schmidt’s having the time of his chut-i-ney-loving life. But he doesn’t have to do it alone, does he? Come on! How can you possibly resist such unbounded exuberance? You can’t, right?

So click here to get your weekend started right!*

And don’t forget to keep clicking, Newbies! This is the kind of time-suck for which the phrase “the gif that keeps on giving” was created. If only there were about 100 more gifs ready to go. Note to Fox: MORE MORE MORE! (Please.)

Nostalgia alert: Which '80s and '90s sitcoms should get 'Boy Meets World'-style reboots?


The people have spoken — and they really, really can’t wait for Girl Meets World. In the month of November, stories about GMW — the as yet un-greenlit Disney Channel sequel-slash-spinoff of Boy Meets World — accounted for a staggering half a million pageviews on EW.com, indicating that you guys take your nostalgia pretty darn seriously.

And while we’re all for reveling in the return of Cory, Topanga, and (fingers crossed) more of the Philadelphia crew, your enormous interest in Girl Meets World got us thinking about which other beloved ’80s and ’90s sitcoms might be ripe for a reboot. And we want to know which comedies you’d put on the list.


Back to school with 'Boy Meets World': What's your favorite moment?

Why was Boy Meets World trending on Twitter this morning? Maybe it’s because tons of teens and college students begin classes today; maybe it’s because ABC Family shows reruns of that beloved sitcom weekday mornings from 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Either way, I’m not complaining. Fall is in the air, and the season always brings a hefty dose of nostalgia with it. (Find me a so-called grown-up who doesn’t secretly want to go school supply shopping, and I’ll find you a liar.)

And while it’s been 12(!) years since Cory, Topanga, Shawn, and their pals left the TGIF lineup, the show still looms large in Millennial memories. Thanks to reruns, YouTube (full episodes via ABC TV On Demand!), and obsessive Tumblrs like Boy Meets World Gifs, we never have to forget the gang from Philly or their rough road to adulthood, maturity, and fake Pennbrook University’s married student dorms. BMW‘s signature mixture of goofy comedy and gooey melodrama helped separate it from the slew of sitcoms cluttering schedules in the mid- to late ’90s, and even today, its jokes and characters still resonate — though Shawn’s boy band hair hasn’t aged quite as well as Rider Strong himself.

In honor of the symbolic first day of school, let’s take a minute to remember our favorite Boy Meets World moments.  READ FULL STORY
