It's Hanukkah, the week of Christmas and a time to watch re-runs while all the shows you love are on hiatus for the holidays. Even though New Girl isn't showing new episodes right now, all of the older seasons are currently on Netflix, which means it's the perfect time to go back and re-watch all of Schmidt’s greatest moments — and there are a lot of them over the past four years.

When Sony was hacked and their private email conversations were released to the public, a lot of insider movie news was revealed to the public. One of the more interesting reveals was that Idris Elba may be the next James Bond. By interesting, I mean the best news and this is awesome and I really hope it happens, because how can you not love Idris Elba?!
In his new book, Andy Cohen apparently outs Kevin Spacey as gay. I doubt anyone read this and had a life changing moment. It's still pretty rude, though, because Spacey has never publicly come out of the closet. Whether or not it's "obvious," it's still his private life and his own business. Whatever he chooses to disclose with the public is his choice.
You know Archie? The old fashioned comic about what kids were like back in the '60s, and it seems like it was probably kind of nerdy even for back then? Yeah, that Archie. You've probably never read it, but you know what it is. Well, next year, Archie is getting a sexy reboot, as a modern teen with modern friends dealing with modern things like iPods and internets and North Korean terrorists and Osama bin Laden's ghost haunting ALL OF AMERICA! (Almost none of that is confirmed, it's just what I'm assuming the new series will be about.
One of the things that the recent hack of Sony Movies' private information revealed is that there are a lot of jerks working behind the scenes in Hollywood. Reading emails where people insulted actors and movies, whined about themselves, and yelled at other people was entertaining, but it was also pretty embarrassing for everyone involved. There was just a lot of negativity flying around.
It was recently announced that Cuba Gooding, Jr. has been cast as OJ Simpson in a miniseries by Ryan Murphy. Sarah Paulson is going to star as prosecutor Marcia Clark, and that the series is going to be like American Horror Story, except with true crimes instead of fictionalized horror. So, you know, super sleazy.
Throughout the past nine seasons, the "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia" gang has landed in some pretty hilarious situations in Paddy’s Pub and the rest of South Philly. Seriously, we're not kidding; each episode is filled with ridiculously funny quotes that will have you rolling on the floor in tears. One thing you can always expect from the show is random interactions between all of the characters. Everyone in this gang certainly has an interesting relationship with one another.
Kourtney Kardashian had her third child! The eldest Kardashian sister gave birth to a baby boy on Sunday, Dec. 14, which just happens to also be her first son, Mason's, fifth birthday. Cute! (Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick are also parents to daughter Penelope, 2.) Kourtney Kardashian is the one this time, who released a classy set of nude photographs showing off her naked body. By classy, I mean that some of them are black and white.
Eleven years ago we were just sitting around watching Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story (not that those are bad), but then something magical happened. You could call it the Christmas miracle of 2003. Elf hit theaters and your life has never been the same. Forget the fact that it doesn't even need to be Christmas for you to sit down and sing along with Buddy the Elf and Zooey Deschanel.
Congratulations to Hayden Panettiere! The Nashville starlet and her longtime love, Wladimir Klitschko, welcomed a baby girl into the world on Tuesday, Dec. 9. Panettiere is now a mom to daughter Kaya, her and Klitschko's first child. The pint-sized pretty lady's rep told People, "We are over the moon and madly in love!"
