Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow Fight on 'Web Therapy' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 7th 2011 8:10AM
'Web Therapy' S01/E08It was a 'Friends' reunion of sorts on last night's 'Web Therapy' (Tues., 11PM ET on SHO) as Courteney Cox stopped by.

She played Serena Duvall, an Internet psychic who wanted Fiona's (Lisa Kudrow) help regaining her abilities. To this end, she invited Fiona onto an episode of 'Tyra,' and that's where it all started to go horribly, horribly wrong.

Fiona was angry because thought she'd been invited onto the show as a member of the panel of web professionals, only to find that she was seated in the audience as a "plant" to show off what she referred to as Serena's "fake powers."

An irate Serena asked her, "Did you really think that you would be up there with the other professionals? The sex worker, the webfomercial spokesperson? Really? Those are professional jobs. What do you do? Give advice? I see the future!"

David Arquette Talks About His Relationship With Courteney Cox (VIDEO)

David Arquette, 'Late Show with David Letterman'When celebrities are married to other celebrities, it's become a common courtesy to ask about their famous other half during interviews. But the courtesy gets a little murky when dealing with unhealthy marriages as we saw with David Arquette on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

Luckily, Arquette appeared to develop the giggles through the course of the interview, so there was no chance he was made uncomfortable by the question. We did love his response to David Letterman's initial question asking how Courteney Cox was.

"Courteney's fantastic," he said, and then after a pause. "We're still separated."

The Cast and Crew of 'Cougar Town' Judge 'Food Network Star' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 27th 2011 9:45AM
Dan Byrd & Busy Philipps, 'Food Network Star'The contestants on 'Food Network Star' (Sun., 9PM ET on Food) got to visit the set of 'Cougar Town,' where they were given the challenge of cooking for various members of the show's staff. Three of them (Susie, Justin D. and Whitney) cooked for the cast, where we learned that Busy Philipps has a pretty discerning palette.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

When it came time for their critiques, the best they could muster up about Justin D. seemed to be support for his glasses. "He's got that sexy Harry Potter chef thing going on," Brian Van Holt said.

There were several problems with Whitney's dish. Paula Deen was on-hand as well, and she said, "it was just like a vegetable dish. It bored me out of my gourd."

'Cougar Town' Returns With Its Goofy Charm (and Secret Serious Side) Intact

by Maureen Ryan, posted Apr 18th 2011 3:15PM
'Cougar Town,' (9:30PM ET Monday, ABC) has a silly name, and its characters often do goofy, immature things (and just to be clear, the latter tendency is part of the show's quite considerable charm).

Still, the comedy, which slides back into its usual 9:30PM ET slot on Wednesday, is deceptive. The two episodes that air this week are solidly funny in typically 'Cougar'-ian ways: There are lots of games of Penny Can, gallons of wine are drunk and the sharp ensemble cast slings mildly barbed banter with ease (there's even an amusing appearance from Ellie and Andy's often-absent baby).

But this week's episodes, like the show as a whole, explore real questions that everyone has to grapple with at some point. When is it a good idea to accept who and what you are? How much should you try to change deeply ingrained habits and attitudes? When is a flaw not really a flaw at all?

'Cougar Town' - 'Wake Up Time' Recap

Courteney Cox and Dan Byrd in 'Cougar Town' - 'Wake Up Time'(S01E20) Because of the loose nature of the latest episodes of 'Cougar Town,' it's a show that's become very difficult to review.

I can scramble around, trying to write down every funny line that was uttered, which won't give me a chance to really take the show in like I should. But if I take the show in and just absorb it for the plots and characters, I'm finding that I sit in front of my computer to write and can't recall any particularly strong plotlines to talk about. They feel more like plot threads, which are hard to grab and hold onto.

This week those plot threads were a little stronger; they were more like plot ropes. Which, in light of the funny but head-scratching episodes we've seen in the last few months, gives me hope that a balance is being struck.

'Cougar Town' - 'Everything Man' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 1st 2010 11:29AM
Josh Hopkins and Sheryl Crow in 'Cougar Town' - 'Everything Man'(S01E19) Usually, when I review a show, I try to incorporate some of the key quotes into my reviews. This method works well for shows like 'How I Met Your Mother' and 'The Office,' and it worked well for Bill Lawrence's other show, 'Scrubs.' But 'Cougar Town' just doesn't lend itself to heavy quoting.

Not that the episodes aren't full of funny lines -- who wouldn't laugh at the term "pursey-whipped?" But when I watch the show, I'm more interested in how the characters are relating to each other and how the ensemble comes together from week to week. I'm just fascinated by the transformation this show has undergone in its first season, from a show centering on Courteney Cox and her character's issues with dating younger men to more of a show about a loving -- albeit a bit odd -- extended family. And this episode was one of the best illustrations of that transformation.

'Cougar Town' - 'Turn This Car Around' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 25th 2010 12:02AM
Sheryl Crow and Josh Hopkins in 'Cougar Town' - 'Turn This Car Around'(S01E18) Is it weird of me to think that the less I see of Courteney Cox in an episode, the more I like it?

Don't get me wrong; since this show has settled into being an ensemble show instead of being just about Jules Cobb, Cox's performance has become more nuanced and realistic. But what's also been happening is that the surrounding characters' stories have become more interesting, while Jules stays the same wine drinkin' fool she's been since day one.

So tonight, when Jules vows to not drink wine for a month, we saw what happens when Jules Cobb turns into Monica Gellar. It wasn't pleasant, but it also wasn't as annoying as it seemed to be portrayed. More on this later.

'Cougar Town' - 'Counting on You' Recap

cougar town counting on you
(S01E17) "When Andy and I met, we were in the same circle of friends, but basically, it was just a doink chain that I worked my way around." - Ellie


Wow, Grayson is really stepping up his Jules love, isn't he? Obviously he's been into her for a while now, but I didn't think we were quite to the point of threatening neighbors and scaling houses to drop threatening notes down chimneys. It's pretty sweet, really. I also like how their relationship is being written now. Instead of going the typical sitcom route and having Jules be oblivious to Grayson's feelings for her, they're keeping it as something that's acknowledged but unspoken between them, because neither one is ready to take the plunge. It really works for me.

Speaking of things working, the whole "gay trap" thing was honestly pretty offensive at first, but it just ended up being so funny, especially when Jules lady-gay trapped Ellie with an Indigo Girls song, that I couldn't get too upset about it.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love 'Cougar Town'

by Patricia Chui, posted Mar 10th 2010 12:30PM
Cougar TownConfession: There is a half-hour ABC comedy, airing on Wednesdays, that I look forward to watching all week. It's smart, funny, quirky, one of the happy surprises of this past season -- and it isn't 'Modern Family.'

Well, all right, it is 'Modern Family.' But there's a second comedy in that same neck of the woods, sharing the 9PM hour like some overeager neighbor or a puppy begging you to pick it up. And though I gave it the brush-off at first, I am now, somewhat to my chagrin, forced to admit it. I caved. Yes, I love [whisper] 'Cougar Town.'

'Cougar Town' - 'What Are You Doin' In My Life?' Recap

Cougar Town(S01E16) "That woman happens to be my family." - Laurie about Jules

I've been enjoying these last few episodes of 'Cougar Town' because the supporting characters have been fleshed out and have become a more central part of the show. This week was no different, as we not only met Laurie's mother but we also learned new tidbits about all characters, including Jules' real estate nemesis, Barb.

Another upside of this week's installment was the appearance of Beverly D'Angelo as Laurie's mother. Not only was it great casting because D'Angelo does look like she could be Busy Philipps' mother, but also because the 'National Lampoon' actress had the comedic acting skills needed to play Sheila, a superficial and bad mother.

'Cougar Town' - 'When a Kid Goes Bad' Recap

(S01E15)
If you want to see evidence of how much a show can change in its first season, look no further than this week's guest star, Barry Bostwick.

He's been among the Bill Lawrence Players for almost fifteen years now, since he was cast as Mayor Randall Winston on 'Spin City.' As Lawrence has said, that show so completely changed focus during its first season, from a romantic comedy to a workplace/government comedy, that the part of one of its stars, Carla Gugino, was cut halfway through that year.

Last night's episode really brought home the fact that in quick order 'Cougar Town' has become much more than what the show was supposed to be about when it debuted. The world surrounding Jules Cobb has now expanded to the point where we see where Andy works, we know Laurie's last name (Keller? Hope she's not related... ) and see enough mixing of characters to make us want to see more.

Sheryl CrowGrammy-winner singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow has been tapped to appear in three episodes of the hit comedy series 'Courgar Town.'

Crow's past TV and movie appearances were mostly as herself and involved singing. However, she does have some acting experience from having played roles other than herself in movies such as '54' and 'The Minus Man' as well as in TV series such as 'Cop Rock.'

Sheryl Crow will have to tap in her acting skills for her 'Cougar' gig as the singer will not be playing herself.

Review: 'Cougar Town' - 'All the Wrong Reasons'

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 4th 2010 11:21AM
Courteney Cox and Christa Miller in 'Cougar Town' - 'All the Wrong Reasons'(S01E14) Ever watch an episode and think the writers wrote it just to address the gripes of its fans? That's the way I felt while watching this one. It was an episode that had more chuckles than laughs, but it addressed the stories of two characters who have probably gotten the shortest end of the character development stick so far: Ellie and Laurie. So, for that, the episode stood out.

Let's start with Laurie. For most of this first season, we've seen her as nothing more than a West-Central Florida wannabe version of Lindsay Lohan. So it was refreshing to see that she's actually grown a conscience, and is willing to admit to it. It's a good thing, because a caricature-heavy Laurie would be tough to take in the show's already-secured second season.

Review: Cougar Town - Stop Dragging My Heart Around

Courteney Cox and Brian Van Holt in Cougar Town: Stop Dragging My Heart Around(S01E13) Wow. Didn't think I'd miss so much in one week. But the episode I had to pass on to Isabelle because of the TCAs was full of character movement; Jules breaks up with Jeff because she doesn't want to be tied down, Laurie and Grayson hook up because of their various relationship issues, and Andy gets a lot of agita from keeping all the group's secrets.

So to see it all play out this week made me a little bit uneasy, but that's a good thing. This show needed some raised stakes among its ensemble, even if we're starting to set up one of those eye-rolling situations where people start to sleep with each other and always end up finding out. Hopefully, this is something that will be examined in dribs and drabs and doesn't dominate the storytelling in the future.
