The breakout comedy New Girl, from show creator/writer Liz Meriwether, returns for its sophomore season with all-new exploits from the smart, spirited and single Jess (Zooey Deschanel), her three male roommates and her beautiful best friend. This season, after Jess gets laid off from her teaching job, she re-evaluates her life and career, and immediately makes some dubious choices along the way. The show also stars Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone.
During this recent interview to promote the Season 2 premiere, actress Zooey Deschanel talked about what fans can expect for this season, how excited she is to have Rob Reiner and Jamie Lee Curtis playing her parents, that Jess and Nick (Johnson) won’t be getting together anytime soon, how much she would enjoy a cross-over episode with The Mindy Project, and how much she enjoys doing voice work on The Simpsons.

Before the 2012 Emmy Nominations are officially announced (July 19th), I wanted to jump in and highlight some of what I believe to be some of the best underrated performances on television this year. Putting aside some of the perennial winners, the following discussion for each of the major categories is likely to mention plenty of names who won’t get Emmy mentions this year, but certainly should (and others who may get a nod, but likely won’t win). Hit the jump for the (spoiler-free!) list that is not meant to be exhaustive (after all, I do watch an unhealthy amount of TV but I’m not caught up on everything), but hopefully brings at least a few of those dark horses to light with the recognition they deserve.
