Pending Cancellation, ABC's Cougar Town Could Move To TBS image
Unless Bill Lawrence pulls another rabbit out of his hat and works out a network switcheroo, just like he did with Scrubs in 2008. Cougar Town might be in the throes of just doing that. It seems TBS has had interest in the series for a while and has spent time working out a deal with ABC Studios to take the show off the network’s hands.

Ratings Come In At Series Low For Cougar Town's Long-Awaited Return image
Well, you can’t say it wasn’t predicted. Cougar Town creator Bill Lawrence said the show would likely return to low ratings, and was he ever right. The much-publicized premiere of the new season after a long absence not only had low ratings, but the lowest the series has ever seen. I’m not sure even Lawrence thought it would be this bad.

Courteney Cox And Cougar Town Creator Bill Lawrence Share Better Title Ideas, Cast Talks Season 3 Spoilers image
Guess what? Cougar Town isn’t a comedy about women who like to date younger men. I say this without a shred of sarcasm, and also admittedly without firsthand knowledge. Not having seen far beyond the series’ pilot, my own understanding of the premise of the series was based largely on vague memories of the one episode I watched, and the title. But I've taken a renewed interest in the series, in an effort to give it another shot as Season 3 gets going tonight.

Do It For Abed: Consider Giving Cougar Town A Chance image
At long last, Cougar Town is set to make its third season premiere on ABC next week. As someone who never took to the show, I’ve decided that come this Valentine’s Day, I’m going to give it another shot. As a fan of NBC’s Community, not only do I know what it’s like to love a series that’s been set aside and put on a longer than average hiatus, but Community has a connection to Cougar Town.

Cougar Town Will Return On Valentine's Day image
Cougar Town normally runs on Wednesdays, but with the schedule shift, it is hopping back a day. This is likely due to the program directly taking the place of Work It, which aired exactly two episodes during ABC’s Tuesday lineup. Therefore, the triumphant return of Cougar Town will occur on Tuesday, February 14 at 8:30 p.m. ET. Keep your DVRs posted.

Cougar Town Could Return To ABC In March image
The long absence of Cougar Town from the ABC lineup may soon come to an end, with the show hopeful for a return in March according to network Entertainment Chief Paul Lee. The series faced a cut in the episode order from 22 to 15 when ABC put its eggs in another basket – but that basket, the series Work It isn’t looking good and the cougars are on the prowl.

Scrub's Bill Lawrence and Friend's Greg Malins Land Pilot At CBS image
If someone were to tell me Bill Lawrence, the creator of such hits as Spin City and Cougar Town, were to hook up with Greg Malins, the executive producer on Friends and How I Met Your Mother, for a series, I would declare fate had a funny bone. Usually the ethos can’t cook up such a supreme comedy duo. TV juggernauts are often lone wolves fighting for creative control, or else are working in restricted contracts which would limit a person’s matchmaking field.

ABC Spring 2011 Season Finale Schedule image
In addition to better weather, spring also brings the conclusion to many TV shows for the season (and in some cases, forever.) ABC released the season finale schedule for their current primetime line-up, which includes a double-dose of Desperate Housewives and Cougar Town.

2010 Fall TV Premiere Schedule image
We’re at the midway point of August and while that might mean the countdown to cooler weather and the return to school or work has already begun for some, it also means we’re just a few weeks away from the start of the new TV season. Up ahead is the primetime schedule for the Fall 2010 season.

New Series Renewals Galore image
The past several days have seen several big renewals for freshmen series. TNT is dipping back for ten more episodes of Men of a Certain Age, while ABC is happy enough with their Wednesday comedy lineup, they've renewed all three of them. CBS just gave the nod to newcomers NCIS: LA and The Good Wife
Don't Give Up On Better Off Ted Yet, ABC! image
I'm confused, ABC. First, you renewed Better Off Ted, despite disappointing ratings last season because you liked the creative energy and direction you were seeing. The show came back stronger than ever this year, but has continued to perform poorly. But rather than try to nurture it, you appear to be hanging it out to dry.
