Ryan Devlin Goes Back to 'Cougar Town'

Getting your sitcom picked up has to be one of the greatest feelings. Getting fired from your sitcom that just got picked up has to be one of the worst. Ryan Devlin was dumped from the upcoming CBS series '$#*! My Dad Says,' starring William Shatner, after the pilot episode.

Luckily, this rising star has a backup plan: 'Cougar Town.' Last season, Devlin played Smith, a young lawyer who hoped to keep Laurie (Busy Philipps) from becoming a cougar herself in later years. The show wasn't banking on Smith returning in season 2 due to Devlin's sure-to-be-a-hit new sitcom, but now that he's free, Entertainment Weekly reports that Smith will reappear on the show.

"We went into this year prepping for Ryan to be on [his new show], so now we're in the middle of trying to decide what we're going to do," said 'Cougar Town' creator Bill Lawrence. "I enjoy him, so I think I want him to still be in our world. But I don't know if [Laurie's] going to be [tied down] the whole year."

We don't think he means literally tied down, although Laurie did have a string of one-night stands before meeting Smith -- Maybe things get a little complicated during a kinky date?
