I had watched it a couple of times...I thought it was pathetic. I wanted to like it but it was really terrible.
Was Demi in this? I may need to up my alimony request...
You're the one on the hook for alimony, Ashton, with your big sitcom paycheck.
PS Love Cougar Town, but it's polarizing, like New Girl (Which I hate).
I like Cougar Town a lot and am bummed by the long wait for new shows. It's always possible that the scheduled start will change if one of the ABC's other new shows goes down in flames.
I think it would make a good tandem with Happy Endings since they share a similar sense of humor.
I agree with r7. Love "Cougar Town," hate "The New Girl." I'm glad it's coming back but pairing it with Tim Allen's show is going to be the final nail in the coffin. They should pair "The Middle" (which I also happen to like) with Tim Allen's show and pair "Cougar Town" with "Suburgatory."
Hopefully Josh Hopkins gets another job soon. For instance, I currently have an opening (snicker) for a man-whore.
OMG! What will Abed do?
Cougar Town will air after Community on the Aspergers Network.
R9, I watched one episode of the Middle on a flight recently, and now I understand all the Patricia Heaton loathing.
The Middle (which I kind of enjoy) is not the reason for the Heaton hate. She's a right winger.
CT isn't cancelled. ABC owns it, and it still needs at least 1 more season for syndication. I will be back for a 4th season.
I found it really interesting that ABC did not slot Apt 23, which is their most buzzed new comedy.
Has anyone seen Scream 4? What did Courtney Cox do to her face? Sad.
I liked CT but thought the relationship between Courtney Cox and the tiny eyes guy happened way too fast. I'm also in the very very small minority of people sort of liking The New Girl.
Is Community in trouble?
It is about time.
I like New Girl. Weirdo Jess and her twisted/cruel friend Cece crack me up.
I watch this just to see Busy Phillips, and for the chance to see Josh Hopkins pecs.
It's not cancelled, OP, just being retooled. Courtney Cox is getting married off, and then the rest of the girls will move to a hotel full of wacky employees.
They're going to call it "Cougar Sanctuary".
Unlikable actors. Unlikable characters. It will not be missed
I agree r23 I think it's utter shit that thinks it's oh so funny and clever. I caught the Penny Can episode - just so sad.
The only episode I ever watched guest starred the fab Bevs D'Angelo.
Perhaps if they had made her the star (or even a regular) then I would have continued to tune in.
This sucks. Cougar Town is hilarious. ABC should cancel that awful show that follows Tim Allen's awful show on Tuesday and then move Allen's show to follow Modern Family. Cougar Town and Happy Endings could then air back to back on Tuesday opposite that awful Glee show which no one watches or likes any more. Cougar Town and Happy Endings worked so well together last season when ABC aired two episodes of Happy Endings after Cougar Town on Wednesday nights.
Will it be funny when it returns? My boyfriend and I tried watching a couple of episodes and wound up slack jawed by how awful it is. Just unbelievably awful. I don't understand at all how it's lasted as long as it has unless it's a favor to Cox for having made so many other people rich with Friends.
They still aren't announcing when the new episodes will start, but they are announcing a cut back in the number of episodes....for now.
by most accounts, the show was actually pretty funny, though I never really watched it. I don't think it was helped much by the title "Cougar Town" though. Doesn't exactly draw in the viewers.
R32, they had a little fun with the debate over changing the name of the show last season. During the opening credits they would always add something in parenthesis after the title acknowledging the discussion. For example, they would have something like "Cougar Town (we're sticking with the name because we can't agree on anything better)."
And just for clarification to others, the show isn't cancelled. They just cut back the number of episodes they want for this year, and haven't yet announced when the third season will start. I'm sure as soon as ABC pulls the cross-dresser show that hasn't started yet (is it called Work It?) after one or two episodes, Cougar Town will be the replacement.
Not cancelled...yet. Coming back Feb. 14th in place of the hit cross-dressing show Work it.
bump for updated news...
I don't know if this has been addressed in another thread. It's true, ABC has given up on Cougar Town.
But TBS has picked it up and will run a full season next year! Good news for fans of the cul-de-sac crew.
What does it mean though for Dan Byrd and Josh Hopkins who both had accepted roles on pilots for new fall shows?
TBS? Only black shows succeed on that channel.
I don't watch any of the original sitcoms that TBS runs currently, but hopefully they will come up with something that could pair well with Cougar Town to make a nice comedy hour. That would have to be a non-Tyler Perry show.
Byrd and Hopkins are tied to Cougar Town. Since it was picked up, they would have to have been replaced in the pilots they made had those shows gone to series.
Bill Lawrence will still have input,so I don't think this will be a makeover like Community and Smash are getting. I liked those shows as they were. I'm more optimistic Cougar Town will maintain itself.
Actually TBS will likely do two seasons of 15, so Cougar Town will get to 100 episodes (or near it) and be good for syndication.
The new guy is just taking over as showrunner….as long as the same writers are in I think all is OK.
Courtney Cox just could not stop hitting the botox.
She did a Today show interview a few years ago, and her face was half paralyzed.
She said later that she regretted doing it, but the last season promo pics even showed she's jacking up her face - repeatedly.
She would have aged well, but has probably permanentaly fucked her face up with her joker perma-smirk
Misfits of Science
I think the shows sucks! It's one of the worst written shows I've ever seen in my life. Courteney Cox looks like some duck lipped clown with all that horrid plastic surgery on her face. She can't even make an expression. Look from season 1, which I was shocked but not as much as I've seen her in pictures and talk shows lately. She has literally frozen her face. Maybe that's why Jennifer quit hanging with her because she doesn't like talking to a stone faced weirdo.. Yuck!!! My God she'll be looking like Joan Rivers before you know it. The stupid Cul De Sac crew.. How stupid can you get.. her shows always tank... God her face sure has. STOP now!!! Future Joan Rivers.. Gross .. is the new look paralysis..
Jan. 8th will be the premier on TBS.
This promo is cute - nice shirtless shot of the guys. Dan Byrd has shed weight.
Howard Stern listeners will know that Christa Miller and her show runner husband (Bill Lawrence) are super fans.
Ronnie the Limo Driver got a part on an episode in the upcoming season of Cougar town. Eric the Midget/Actor might also end up in an episode, but Ronnie is a sure thing. They had a contest between those two guys on Howard's show to see who would be a guest 'star.'
The problem with Cougar Town is that none of the women sound like women and all of the characters sound like Bill Lawrence, the creator.
Also, they need to cool it with the "our title sucks" jokes. It's really really played out. It's like when a friend is insecure about gaining a few pounds and is constantly making fat jokes at their expense so that we know that they know there's a problem. It's not cute, it's annoying and desperate. Either shit or get off the pot.
Did they ever end up saying who came up with the title in the first place?
New episodes start on TBS next Tuesday, Jan. 8th. I just reprogrammed the DVR today because of the network change.
Can they curse on TBS like they do on FX shows? Not that Cougar Town will start dropping 'shit' because they really don't talk like that on the show, but I'm just wondering if it would be possible like on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
