A new home for 'Cougar Town'


In a move that’s bound to call for a celebratory glass of wine in some circles, TBS has swooped in to rescue ABC’s Courteney Cox sitcom “Cougar Town.”

The show’s fourth season will premiere on the basic-cable channel early in 2013 and has also acquired rerun rights for the 61 episodes from the first three seasons.

Created by Bill Lawrence (“Scrubs,” “Spin City”), the unfortunately named comedy stars Cox as Jules, a divorced mother of an almost grown son (Dan Boyd). Other stars include Josh Hopkins who plays her fiancé, Christa Miller and Ian Gomez as neighbors, Brian Van Holt as Jules’ ex and Busy Phillips as her “feisty protégé.”

Yes, they drink a lot, but mostly on weekends, insists Lawrence.

And now they all have something to drink to.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
