Courteney Cox shuts down talk of 'Friends' reunion on 'Letterman' -- VIDEO

Could she BE any more clear?

Courteney Cox went on the Late Show with David Letterman Monday night, and Letterman told her he had to ask her about something she probably didn’t want to address: A Friends reunion.

Fans have been clamoring for one since the show went off the air in May 2004 (10 years ago!). Unfortunately, Cox said she’s got some bad news: She can barely get Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and Lisa Kudrow together for a cast dinner. That means a taped reunion simply isn’t in the cards. “It’s not gonna happen,” she said. (For the record, Friends creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane told EW the same thing earlier this month: “The show is over. What was at the heart of the show is done,” said Kauffman. And as Crane added, “People say they want it, and the more that we say it’s a bad idea, people [disagree]. But I think if we actually gave it to people, there would be such backlash.”)


'Cougar Town': Talk about the season 5 premiere!

After a way-too-long hiatus, our favorite cul-de-sac crew is back for a fifth season. And this week’s title card stated what everyone was already thinking: “Season Five? Didn’t see that coming.” But the little show that could is still going strong, and I’ll gladly pound some grape to that!

The premiere episode, “All or Nothin,'” picked up where season 4 left off. The gang returned from their vacation to L.A., and Travis and Laurie reveled in their newfound romantic relationship. Unfortunately, the rest of the group wasn’t too keen on the new pairing. “It’s a complex range of emotions that can’t be expressed by mere words. I invented a sound to capture it: awwwblecch.” Yeah, Ellie, that’s pretty accurate. READ FULL STORY

'Friends' reunion alert! Matthew Perry has some advice for Jennifer Aniston -- VIDEO

Jennifer Aniston appears on today’s episode of Ellen, but not just as a guest — she’s co-hosting the show. Naturally, this gig carries more pressure than a simple guest appearance… which is why Aniston thought it’d be a good idea to stop by her old Friend Matthew Perry’s house and ask him for advice, since he recently co-hosted alongside DeGeneres himself. (Jen: “You’ve got to give me something to go on!” Matthew: “Don’t say Go On.”)

Unfortunately, the rap session doesn’t go completely as planned. It turns out Aniston and Perry haven’t really stayed in touch since Friends went off the air in 2004… and things get even more awkward when Rachel Jen realizes that Chandler Matthew is sleeping with another one of their former co-stars. (Cue “The One Where Everybody Finds Out.”) Thank you, Ellen DeGeneres — by making this video possible, you’ve done us a great national service.


The Bings reunite! -- PHOTOS

As the great Chanandler Bong would say: Could these photos BE more amazing?

Answer: Nope. Because my definition of pure bliss is acting like Friends never ended, and if anything is going to help me live in denial, it’s a steady stream of photos featuring random pairings of Friends cast members.


I'll be there for you: Mini-'Friends' reunions we can't get enough of

After hearing the latest news that the Bings are back, we couldn’t help but imagine what Ms. Chanandler Bong and his wife are up to now. Although we like to think that they are busy raising two very competitive and witty children, and that Joey is in fact living in an apartment above their garage (and teaching their children the art of “How you doin'”), we don’t actually know.

So while our Friends-loving hearts still wait for a real reunion (fingers crossed), we currently get through the day by reliving the handful of mini-reunions we’ve enjoyed over the years. Here’s a look back at the many times that we’ve sat at home and remembered the days of Joey’s sandwiches, Ross’ divorces and, of course, smelly cat: READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': Discuss the two-part season 3 finale

The third season of Cougar Town has come full circle. Spoiler Alert: Stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet.

We started out with a tear-inducing proposal and finished off with a tear-inducing marriage. It wasn’t an easy road, but Jules and Grayson are finally Mr. and Mrs. But I’m getting ahead of myself here. The special two-part “My Life/Your World” began with a frustrated Grayson. He forgot that by marrying Jules he was marrying the rest of the cul-de-sac crew. And that meant he’d never get any privacy over at Casa de Jules. Grayson decided his life was just like Groundhog Day since he was reliving the same problems over and over again.


'Cougar Town': Season 3 wraps up on the cul-de-sac

After a tumultuous year in TV scheduling limbo, Cougar Town finally concludes its third season tonight on ABC. The episode will also mark the cul-de-sac crew’s last appearance on the network, as Jules & Co. will be packing their bags and moving to TBS next year, sans showrunners Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel.

In the special hour-long finale “My Life/Your World,” Jules and Grayson (spoiler alert!) finally tie the knot. So grab your own Big Joe Carl Lou, and prepare for a night of pounding grape with a few notes about the season 3 ender:


A double dose of 'Cougar Town': Discuss last night's episodes

Well I can’t be too mad at ABC for its many Cougar Town preemptions because last night we got a double dose of our favorite cul-de-sac crew. (Also, cheers to TBS!)  So in lieu of a normal recap, we’ll just recount the night’s most memorable moments and lines. And with a full hour of Jules & Co., there was plenty of funny.

In the first episode, “Square One,” Jules and Grayson were forced to move in together after last week’s hurricane damaged Grayson’s house. Meanwhile, Ellie and Laurie fought over who was the sexiest. They enlisted Travis — much to his dismay — to help settle their great debate. And Bobby and Jules had a white shirt challenge: First person to stain their shirt lost. (Spoiler alert!) Jules lost after Grayson tripped and spilled his glass of wine on her. What a waste of a good drink!


'Cougar Town': Do you want a Travis and Laurie romance? Discuss!

I imagine last night’s episode of Cougar Town was pretty polarizing for fans. Some of you, myself included, are all aboard the Laurie/Travis romance train. And others are wholeheartedly against it. In “Down South” Trav and Laurie got the closest we’ve ever seen them get to becoming anything more than just friends.


'Cougar Town': The Pig Trials

First, let’s make one thing clear: I think I would watch a show called The Pig Trials. Particularly if the lawyers were humans and the bailiffs were horses. And I fully support any world in which the maximum sentence is bacon. But I digress. Last night’s “Southern Accents” wasn’t just about the pig trials. It was about Jules letting go of her hatred of Grayson’s baby mama Holly, and learning to accept her for who she is.
