The supporting actress comedy pool was just as competitive as its dude counterpart for this year’s EWwy Awards. So many funny female characters help set the tones of their whole show, whether unassumingly (Aubrey Plaza in Parks and Rec) or obviously (Busy Philipps in Cougar Town). By the power vested in us by Annie’s Boobs (ewwww – that’s weird for me to write), we reluctantly narrowed the field to six. Watch them below, then flip through all of this year’s EWwy nominees in our photo gallery. READ FULL STORY »

Last Friday, Cougar Town co-creator Bill Lawrence announced via Twitter that he was back at work plotting the show’s third season and starting the year with the “traditional ‘should we change the title?’” conversation. “How many of you (if you like show) have had trouble getting others to watch due to crappy/lame/cheesy title? Curious,” he wrote. Apparently, enough of his followers piped up, because he later followed up with, “Screw it. I’m changing it…. Seriously, we just decided.” Of course, ABC has yet to sign off on that. (The network had no comment when contacted by EW.) But Lawrence makes a solid case on Twitter: He says he wanted to change the title last year to Sunshine State or Grown Ups, but the network balked because it already had Mr. Sunshine (which has now been canceled) and there was that Adam Sandler movie Grown Ups (which we’ve now all forgotten). He also explains that there’s more behind reigniting this debate than the widely acknowledged feeling that the title doesn’t represent the show: “The ratings suck (2.0 in the [18-49] demo for last two weeks) and show will go away if they don’t get better next year,” he tweeted. “Part 2: research shows a large number of people who won’t/haven’t tried show out because of… The title.” READ FULL STORY »
Aloha from ”We will never stop mocking the title…Cougar Town!” Here’s the good news: ABC treated us with a special, hour-long episode of CT set in Hawaii! The bad news: It was the season finale. Our favorite cul-de-sac crew will not return until November. (I’ll pause for you to pound some grape in an effort to deal with the news….) In the meantime, we’ve got a lot to cover. Let’s dive right in. READ FULL STORY »
Much like the beginning of last week’s episode of We Should Have Live Cougars On Cougar Town, Travis was still hanging out in the dark mourning the loss of Kirsten. He hadn’t even been going to college. It was a Travisty. (See what I did there?) But breakups are hard. It took Jules a year to bounce back after she and Bobby split up, and it was the worst weekend of Bobby’s life.
Travis finally admitted that college might not be right for him after he was caught lying about being on spring break. So Jules gave him an ultimatum: Go back to college or move out and get a job. Travis knew his mom’s new tough love attitude wasn’t really her, despite her claim that she “tosses asses.” But who was she kidding? She couldn’t even let her son eat stale chips. Sure enough, Jules’ tough-love act didn’t last for long. Instead, she and Travis had a kite-flying, sandcastle-building day at the beach. READ FULL STORY »
In last night’s episode of “We Pretend… Cougar Town…Is Called Wine Time,” I was surprised by the lack of grape being pounded by our favorite cul-de-sac crew. I think a little time with Big Carl (RIP Joe) and even Little Richard would have done the group some good and maybe even helped with their familial problems. READ FULL STORY »
The headline says it all. The Cobbs can get through anything! I know you’re (probably) not a Cobb, but I have faith you can make it through this recap. So let’s chat “sorry, we still cringe at the title“ Cougar Town.
Kirsten was officially planning her move to Chicago. Since locking her to a pipe with a chain was not a valid option, Travis furthered his plan to propose with his great-grandmother’s ring. I must note the rejected plans: 1) Skipping the ring altogether and putting a baby in her. 2) Pimp-whacking her over the head. Yeah, a proposal was really his only option. READ FULL STORY »
Last night’s Cougar Town taught us a valuable lesson about embarrassment: You can’t hear the world laughing at you if you’re laughing harder. (Or in Andy’s case, if you have pool water stuck in your ear.) It also taught us the importance of a good history lesson. If you don’t learn the simple stuff, you might just end up looking like a super-sexy corpse. And I think that’s a bad thing. READ FULL STORY »
Okay, so the exclusive video embedded below of Courteney Cox answering her first 1-855-Penny-Can call backstage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week would have been funnier if the caller had said he wasn’t hoping to get her. But still, it’s visual proof that the cast, creators, and writers are taking turns with the phone, which ABC tells EW has been ringing non-stop. They’re still passing it around this week, so it’s not too late to roll the dice and dial. Has anyone gotten through to someone? Share your story below. (We’d like to applaud Courteney’s caller for ending the conversation gracefully before she had to.) READ FULL STORY »
