New Girl, the TV comedy starring Zooey Deschanel got the first full season order of the new TV season on Wednesday, after proving one of the brightest spots in Fox’s fall line-up.  The show focuses on a ditsy 20-something woman and her three male housemates

Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly said the network had ordered an additional 11 episodes of the program, after just two have been broadcast. With more than nine million viewers, “New Girl” is Fox’s highest-rated fall comedy debut in 10 years.

“We love the charming Zooey Deschanel and the entire cast,” said Reilly. “It’s great that audiences have responded so positively so far and we’re confident that even more people will embrace the show — and more comedy on Fox– this season.”

New Girl so far outshone Fox’s costly and much-hyped new dinosaur adventure series “Terra Nova”, which attracted just nine million viewers when it debuted on Monday.  It has also been beating out its lead-in Glee.
