If the Super Bowl commercials don't make you laugh, a special comedy hour following the game might do the trick. Fox's hits New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are a part of Sunday's post game line-up.

Fox 17's Mikayla Lewis sat down with stars from both shows in Los Angeles to find out some of the special guests you'll see.

"New Girl " is welcoming a new guy: Prince.

Star Zoey Deschanel said , " He's Prince, so he was pretty intimidating but he was actually really funny."

Prince is starring as himself in the special episode. The superstar joins "New Girl" characters in their comedic quest for friendship, love and finding themselves in the world. The excitement goes well beyond Super Bowl night. Deschanel plays new girl, Jess and says there are more special guests this season. Linda Cardellini will be playing Jess's bad girl sister and Adam Brody will also guest star this season.

Deschanel said, " It's great. It's great for us and I think it's a nice opportunity for them to play a fun part."

Lamorne Morris said, "It's  just a testament to how well the show is doing. It's a very exciting thing when people of that caliber that want to be a part of what you're up to."

Morris plays Winston and Hannah Simone is Cece, and both are back for season three of New Girl.

Hannah Simone said, " You just get closer, it gets easier, more fun, you become a cohesive unit."

A police unit is joining "New Girl" Sunday night as well. A new episode of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" will feature Fred Armisen. The show continues to follow the day-to-day life of Detective Jake Peralta, played by Andy Samberg and the rest of the officers in his precinct.

Stars Terry Crews and Andre Braugher were also in L.A. right after the Golden Globes. Shooting straight out of the gate, the new show grabbed a Golden Globe for Best Television Series. Samberg nabbed the Best Comedic Actor award.

Andre Braugher said, "Every episode gets deeper and deeper and richer and richer. So I think we're on a good role and there hasn't been any slump in the quality of the episodes, so I think its good."

Terry Crews added, " Just felt like we all fit in this nice little puzzle, we were all pieces that just went right together. I really call this my second family. "
Your family and friends can catch the comedy hour on Sunday, February 2nd following the Super Bowl.

The two shows will resume their regular schedule Tuesday nights on Fox 17.
