COUGAR TOWN CANCELLED????
|by Jules||reply 53||06/26/2013|
I thought this went off two years ago.
|by Jules||reply 1||11/18/2011|
It's coming back in March, but it's order was reduced from 22 episodes to 15:

There might actually be a god after all.
|by Jules||reply 3||11/18/2011|
I had watched it a couple of times...I thought it was pathetic. I wanted to like it but it was really terrible.
|by Jules||reply 4||11/18/2011|
Was Demi in this? I may need to up my alimony request...
|by Jules||reply 5||11/18/2011|
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).
|by Jules||reply 7||11/18/2011|
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.
|by Jules||reply 8||11/18/2011|
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."
|by Jules||reply 9||11/18/2011|
Hopefully Josh Hopkins gets another job soon. For instance, I currently have an opening (snicker) for a man-whore.
|by Jules||reply 10||11/18/2011|
OMG! What will Abed do?
|by Jules||reply 11||11/18/2011|
Cougar Town will air after Community on the Aspergers Network.
|by Jules||reply 12||11/18/2011|
R9, I watched one episode of the Middle on a flight recently, and now I understand all the Patricia Heaton loathing.
|by Jules||reply 13||11/18/2011|
The Middle (which I kind of enjoy) is not the reason for the Heaton hate. She's a right winger.
|by Jules||reply 14||11/18/2011|
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.
|by Jules||reply 15||11/18/2011|
Has anyone seen Scream 4? What did Courtney Cox do to her face? Sad.
|by Jules||reply 16||11/18/2011|
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.
|by Jules||reply 17||11/18/2011|
Is Community in trouble?
|by Jules||reply 18||11/18/2011|
It is about time.
|by Jules||reply 19||11/19/2011|
I like New Girl. Weirdo Jess and her twisted/cruel friend Cece crack me up.
|by Jules||reply 20||11/19/2011|
I watch this just to see Busy Phillips, and for the chance to see Josh Hopkins pecs.
|by Jules||reply 21||11/19/2011|
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".
|by Jules||reply 22||11/19/2011|
Unlikable actors. Unlikable characters. It will not be missed
|by Jules||reply 23||11/19/2011|
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.
|by Jules||reply 24||11/19/2011|
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.
|by Jules||reply 25||11/19/2011|
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.
|by Jules||reply 26||11/19/2011|
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.
|by Jules||reply 27||11/19/2011|
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 Jules||reply 28||11/19/2011|
Cougars are really having a bad year...first Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins then Demi and Ashton now this.
|by Jules||reply 29||11/19/2011|
Busy Phillips talks about her disappointment over the reduction in episodes/storylines for this season. But she also sheds some light on upcoming events.
|by Jules||reply 30||12/15/2011|
FUCK!!! This was a fun show! WTF?!?
|by Jules||reply 31||12/20/2011|
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.
|by Jules||reply 32||12/20/2011|
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.
|by Jules||reply 33||12/20/2011|
Not cancelled...yet. Coming back Feb. 14th in place of the hit cross-dressing show Work it.
|by Jules||reply 34||01/18/2012|
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?
|by Jules||reply 35||05/11/2012|
TBS? Only black shows succeed on that channel.
|by Jules||reply 36||05/11/2012|
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.
|by Jules||reply 37||05/11/2012|
News about who is taking over as exec. producer. For those that enjoy the show the way it is (unfortunately there are too few of us), I'm not sure this change bodes well for the future.
|by Jules||reply 38||05/25/2012|
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.
|by Jules||reply 39||05/25/2012|
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.
|by Jules||reply 40||05/25/2012|
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
|by Jules||reply 41||05/25/2012|
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..
|by Jules||reply 42||09/05/2012|
Jan. 8th will be the premier on TBS.
This promo is cute - nice shirtless shot of the guys. Dan Byrd has shed weight.
|by Jules||reply 43||09/12/2012|
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.'
|by Jules||reply 44||11/05/2012|
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?
|by Jules||reply 45||11/05/2012|
New episodes start on TBS next Tuesday, Jan. 8th. I just reprogrammed the DVR today because of the network change.
|by Jules||reply 46||01/03/2013|
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.
|by Jules||reply 47||01/06/2013|
Last week on the Stern show they said that Ronnie the Limo Driver will be on the season finale episode. Apparently he'll play a transvestite.
|by Jules||reply 48||01/07/2013|
Seems like TBS should be happy with the debut ratings. CougarTown pulled about the same numbers as they did on ABC - but that number of viewers looks better on a cable network.
|by Jules||reply 49||01/09/2013|
We know the characters drink a lot of wine, too. That's gotten old, too. We get it.
|by Jules||reply 50||01/09/2013|
Please tell me Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley are safe!?!?!?
|by Jules||reply 51||01/09/2013|
TBS is happy with the Cul-de-sac Crew. They are renewed for another season.
|by Jules||reply 52||03/25/2013|
I remember Courtney Cox specifically telling Howard Stern that she was not dating the dude that plays her ex-husband on the show. Apparently she might not have been forthright.
