The 15 Best Female TV Characters of The Modern Day

Jess Day

Jess Day (New Girl)

Even though Jess’s behavior during the first half of New Girl‘s first season may have been too much for some people, the writers have really found a grasp on the character since then. Jess still sings to herself, of course, and wears those too-big-for-her-face glasses. However, she’s also much more adult now and less like a a 13-year-old trapped in the body of someone in their early thirties. She’s compassionate, dedicated to her job, and a truly loving best friend. The best thing about Jess is, despite New Girl‘s sitcom antics, she remains real, a type of girl that women can relate to and one that guys (like myself) wish we could date.
