Wouldn’t you love it if an episode of New Girl lasted three hours, aired on basic cable (the Douchebag Jar could be put to far better use), and didn’t have that pesky Jess floating around keeping everyone in check? That is not intended to be a slight at the wonderful Zooey Deschanel; the rhythm of the joke just works better if you have three things. It’s a comedy rule, people. And speaking of comedy that rules (I apologize for nothing), the brilliant dynamic that exists between the three male residents of the Los Angeles apartment featured on Fox’s hit sitcom New Girl is about to be brought to the stage of VH1’s 2012 Do Something Awards — Nick (Jake M. Johnson), Winston (Lamorne Morris), and, of course, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) are hosting this year’s ceremony.
The network announced the hosts in a statement promoting the award program (formerly called the BR!CK Awards), which recognizes achievements of young men and women under the age of 25 who have accomplished or set forth noteworthy efforts toward the betterment of his or her community, via charity, activism, et al. The show is an excellent means of showcasing the opportunities young people have to apply their creativity toward making a difference, and is also an excellent means of showcasing the appropriate uses of hair chüt-a-nèy.
But just because this year’s hosts are known for some outlandish behavior on their Fox series, that doesn’t mean fans shouldn’t expect a calm, sophisticated awards show. For instance, perhaps an opening number featuring a handbell solo by Morris. A demonstration in the craft of fragrance creation from Greenfield. And maybe some wistful contemplation of his plentiful regrets, courtesy of Johnson. That last one doesn’t exactly make for great TV, but Nick isn’t really good at anything. Maybe a turtle impression.
The Do Something Awards will air Tuesday, August 21 at 9 PM ET/PT on VH1.
