PostCougar Town - Renewed for the last time

What what?
Surprisingly, nothing to do with Cougars.
Wikipedia wrote:The series focuses on a recently divorced woman in her forties facing the often humorous challenges, pitfalls and rewards of life's next chapter, along with her son, ex-husband, and wine-loving friends who together make up her dysfunctional, but supportive and caring extended family.


Written by the guy who used to do Scrubs, it's one of the best new comedy of recent years.

Who?
The show revolves around the cul-de-sac crew; Jules (the main one), Ellie (Jules' BFF), Andy (Ellie's husband), Bobby (Andy's BFF), Grayson (he owns a bar), Laurie (Jules' other BFF) and Travis (the young one).

As you can probably imagine there's a whole load of ex-Scrubs actors making appearances, including (but not limited to): Jordan, Kelso, Sean, Crazy Jill, Cabbage, Dr Zeltzer, and all these guys:



When?
It broadcasts in America on Tuesday nights, so it's available to download on Wednesday morning. For those who want to give it genuine ratings, Sky Living are showing the current season an episode behind America on Friday nights at 8:30.

Why?
Because it's great and it deserves to get another series, and all the effort I've put into this OP will be wasted if it doesn't get renewed, as there's only five more episodes left :shifty:
Also, pig trials:



Cougar Town moves to TBS for it's fourth season!

There are no details on the order but I had heard that TBS and Cougar Town producer ABC Studios were targeting a 15-episode one. TBS today announced a fourth-season pickup for Cougar Town to premiere in early 2013, though I hear the studio has the cast locked in for another season after that, so a fifth season could be in the cards too, bringing the series to comfortable syndicatable levels.

Cougar Town got really good when it ditched the original premise like ten episodes into season 1. Arguably the second best sitcom airing right now after Parks and Rec.

I do like the fact your opening picture doesn't include the (recognisable) star of the show :lol:

It's to try and get the point across that it's not about Cougars anymore, dammit :x

Also, I thought a screenshot of the "hi Kylie" bit was a good welcomer to the thread:

I watched the pilot and next couple of eps again recently.

It really is shocking how much it's changed.

If ABC doesn't pick up Cougar Town for another season it might end up moving to cable station TBS, on a reduced budget.

ABC’s ‘Cougar Town’ Eyes Move To TBS.

Just watched this weeks episode. "Don't drink and drive. You might kill your dad"

"I'm not a perfect storm, I'm only an okay storm!" :lol:

The "be my body" bit was pretty good, too. Bet this season's gonna finish with Wade turning up or something at this rate.

Was a really good episode this week. Really felt for Travis. :cry:

SO glad it has been picked up by a cable channel as well. Hopefully they will have a bit more freedom and don't need to get high ratings to continue past season 4.

I'm not ashamed to say I almost shed tears during that last section.

This one?:

Oui.

He "went" to College, but it seems to be within driving distance so he's still in it pretty frequently.

What the hell. It must have been a cake walk running the show, to be fair.

Seems like there's been two episodes this week (E12 & E13) and there isn't one next week because of Dancing with the Stars, so it's back for the hour long season finale on the 29th. Let's hope it's as good as the Season 2 finale was :wub:

E13: RIP in peace, Big Carl :cry:

"I love that I can fit an entire bottle of wine in you... and carry you around."

Seems like Grayson's house has been rebuilt in the course of a few hours, too... :shifty:
