'New Girl': Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Is Winston's Tortured New Co-Worker (VIDEO)

Jess and Russell have been progressing nicely in their relationship, but it's been almost exclusively at his place thus far. She wanted to immerse him a bit more into her world, and so she invited him to spend the weekend at her place this week on "New Girl" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on Fox).

In advance, though, she tried to convince her roommates to be "normal." Their version of normal might just scare away any genuinely normal person. But she needn't have worried, as Russell actually fit in quite well with the eccentricities of the gang. Especially after a rousing run through one of the coolest drinking games ever seen. Someone on the production team needs to release the rules for True American. It's like everyone's favorite game as children where they pretended the floor was lava, with the added fun of alcohol.

Winston established a new normal for himself when he secured something more akin to a real job as a research assistant on a local sports radio show. He almost bailed on the job, until learning that one of his co-workers with NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. And apparently that the way into the good graces of his new boss was with immature pranks.
