Watch Cougar Town
Cougar Town stars Courteney Cox as a recently-divorced woman approaching middle age who is entering the dating scene. Although Cox's character could certainly be called a cougar by today's standards, the show actually offers much more than just dating with age differences. In fact, the show has veered significantly from its original premise to become a program that is more about how adults of a certain age interact with one another. Although some people will still think of the show as a program about the romantic entanglements between Cox's character and younger men, people who tune in to Cougar Town for the first time are generally surprised at what they end up watching.
The program is centered around the character of Jules Cobb, as portrayed by Courteney Cox. Jules is a single mother who has recently gone through a divorce. Jules lives in the fictional town of Gulf Haven, Florida, and she has a successful career as a real estate agent. Jules is shown living her fairly comfortable life as she begins to navigate the dating world once again after a long time away. Although the character is in her 40s, she tries to make up for lost time by dating younger men. However, she begins to feel more comfortable with her age as the series progresses, and the show becomes more about the nuances of Jules' life and the relationships she has with her friends and family.
The show also features a terrific supporting cast led by Christa Miller, who portrays Jules' best friend and neighbor, Ellie Torres. Ellie and Jules' relationship is explored in great detail on the show, and Ellie is often used as a comic foil for the slightly more serious Jules. Busy Philipps plays the role of the fun-loving Laurie Keller, an employee of Jules. Laurie is younger and a bit less responsible than Jules or Ellie, but her personality often drives the drama of the program. Rounding out the supporting cast are Brian Van Holt as Bobby Cobb

Not one to be long outdone, apparently, David Arquette has announced his engagement! Arquette popped the question to on-again, off-again girlfriend, entertainment reporter girlfriend Christina McLarty, during a family dinner in Malibu with their 2-month-old son Charlie West, and Arquette's daughter Coco from his marriage to Courteney Cox. Arquette and family arrived at an ocean-view restaurant, and a time after they had been seated, Arquette brought them ouside. At sunset, he knelt and proposed to McLarty.
It was a sad day for fans of underrated but also not very popular sitcoms when "Cougar Town" went off the air. Call it a case of bad marketing if you will (creator and former showrunner Bill Lawrence slapped the name on it when he was pitching it, and regretted it ever since), but either way, it bit the bullet. Thankfully, TBS picked up the slack and "Cougar Town" has a new home on TBS, where the show's viewership is seen as a pretty healthy one. All that was missing was a premiere date.
If you're a "Scrubs" fan from way back, this isn't exactly what anyone would call "new." Bill Lawrence's Courtney Cox-starring comedy "Cougar Town" is bolting ABC for a new zip code on TBS, Reuters reports. The comedy was at one point left entirely off ABC's 2012 schedule, but when the guys-as-dolls sitcom "Work It" tanked this past February, it was brought forth from Hiatus Purgatory. Unfortunately, despite hiatus cast cameos everywhere Lawrence could probably swing a favor or two, the ratings just never took off once it returned.
There shouldn't be panic surrounding "Cougar Town" and its recent ratings, but Tuesday night wasn't a good sign. The popular ABC comedy is in its second week back from hiatus, but many might've missed the memo. The Courtney Cox-led comedy drew 4.5 million viewers Tuesday evening, but hit a series-low rating by falling 6 percent to a 1.5 mark among adults age 18-49. The rating stayed near the basement despite lead-in "Last Man Standing" performing strongly 7.
Oh, my. There is no joy in "Cougar Town," folks. A mighty comedy has struck out. The Courtney Cox-led sexy suburbs hit resumed its third season Tuesday night, but alas, marked the occasion by watching its rating nosedive 47 percent to a series-low 1.8 among adults 18-49 years old. The fact that only 4.8 million viewers tuned in might suggest the grass was really greener when it was led in Wednesday nights by "Modern Family" before taking a hiatus. To put it into truly cringe-worthy perspective, the last two shows keeping the current "Cougar Town" slot warm, "Man Up" and "Work It," debuted respectively with 2.
Whether single and surly, or attached and twitter-pated, have a Happy Valentine's Day this year. Enjoy either some decadent, gifted chocolates, or some screw-the-bowl, self-loathing Ben & Jerry's. Gaze across a candle-lit table into another's soft, tender eyes . . . or consider ordering a pizza and bathing beneath a flat-screen's light. But one way or another, nestle up with either a special person you love or a under blanket shared only with that voodoo doll you made of your ex, and enjoy the return of ABC's "Cougar Town.
ABC has its midseason premieres set in stone, but just where is "Cougar Town"? With the 13th "Dancing With The Stars" season closing out Monday night, fans of the foxtrotting-famous-faces fandango won't have long to catch their breath: the 14th chase for the Mirrorball Trophy is the biggest announced midseason moment, with the opening performance show kicking off Monday March 19 at 7 PM ET/PT, with the season's first results show bowing March 20 at 8 PM ET/PT. The hit competition show will close out almost three months of premieres that starts Jan.
I've got this really peanut butter-and-chocolate thing about producer Bill Lawrence and Sarah Chalke: not combination of the two can ever result in anything bad. For the first time since Chalke's last appearance as bubbly Dr. Elliot Reid on the ill-fated last season of "Scrubs" on ABC - which Lawrence has publicly all but declared he'd like to pretend never happened - and for the third time overall, she'll pair with the comedic producer and teach the world to love again.
