ABC Orders More 'Cougar Town'

by Marina Zogbi, posted Jan 6th 2010 7:41PM
Cougar TownAccording to EW.com, ABC has ordered up two more episodes of 'Cougar Town,' bringing the show's freshman season to 24 episodes.

The comedy, which premiered Sept. 23 and stars Courtney Cox as Jules, a divorced single mother who reenters the dating scene, has proved to be an excellent companion to the network's Wednesday night comedy block. (Earlier in the season, ABC ordered more episodes of 'CT's' lead-ins, 'The Middle' and 'Modern Family.')

Which one of Courteney Cox's old Friends would you like to see on Cougar Town?

cougar town, abc, courtney coxWe all knew this was gonna happen.

Along with Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox starred in one of the most popular ensemble TV comedies of all time. It's inevitable that at least one of her former Friends co-stars will eventually show up on her new ABC comedy, Cougar Town, for a guest spot. Even show creator Bill Lawrence knows that this is something the TV Gods demand.

"You and I both know that we'll do that eventually," Lawrence told EW's Michael Ausiello about the possibility.

But don't expect to see any of Cox's old friends visiting Cougar Town any time soon. ABC is set on selling the show's star and not potential guest actors this fall, Lawrence said.

TV Squad previews ABC's new shows (Part 1)

abc network logoABC is banking big on comedy this fall, with a Wednesday night lineup featuring four new sitcoms starring some familiar faces. The network is also set to unveil more high-concept dramas, including Flash Forward, V, The Forgotten and Eastwick.

I caught the first act of the Flash Forward pilot during the network's upfront presentation in May. It was good enough to become my most anticipated show of the upcoming fall season. My second most anticipated show is V, the revamp of the '80 series/miniseries about an alien invasion. ABC hasn't released full screeners for V or Flash Forward yet, but we got advanced looks at some of the network's other new shows, including Eastwick and Cougar Town, the new comedy from Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence. Look for previews of more new ABC shows here at TV Squad before the fall season kicks off in September.

Another Friends reunion ... sort of

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 23rd 2009 1:02PM
FriendsThe media never turns down a chance to advertise a "reunion" of the cast of NBC's Friends, even when it's only two cast members appearing in the same show. Courtney Cox will be guest-starring on Web Therapy, an online-only show produced by L Studio starring Lisa Kudrow.

I recall when Jennifer Aniston guest-starred on the two-seasoned FX series Dirt which starred Courteney Cox. That was subliminally billed as a Friends reunion as well.

One could argue that this is a cheap marketing ploy, and that person would be correct. It could be one that works, though. I haven't watched Web Therapy, but the premise seems interesting and it's certainly the sort of role Lisa Kudrow could pull off.

ABC picks up new comedies starring TV vets

kelsey grammerABC will make official pick up announcements Tuesday, but the trades are already reporting that the network has ordered a large number of new shows for the upcoming fall season.

Along with some dramas and mythology-laden shows, it looks like ABC is playing it safe by picking up four half-hour family comedies starring some well-known TV vets.

Joining the already renewed Scrubs and Better Off Ted will be Hank, a multi-camera family show starring Frasier's Kelsey Grammer and The Middle, a single-camera comedy with Grammer's former Back to You co-star Patricia Heaton. Both shows seem to have pretty tired concepts. Hank is about a washed-up Wall Street deal maker who moves back to his home town, and The Middle is about a middle-class mom who is approaching middle age. Hopefully the stars, and the jokes, will make these shows worth watching.

Courteney Cox goes straight to the top on Scrubs

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jul 10th 2008 8:22AM
courtney coxI'm a sucker for stunt casting. Sure, it can get annoying after a while, (hello Will & Grace) but I still love seeing a Michelle Trachtenberg on Gossip Girl or a Britney Spears on How I Met Your Mother. So I was really excited to read that Courteney Cox has signed up to guest star on Scrubs this season.

Cox, who was most recently seen on her FX drama, Dirt, is returning to the small screen for a three-episode arc as Sacred Heart's newest Chief of Medicine. The position was left open after Dr. Kelso (Ken Jenkins) retired at the end of last season. Since Cox is only going to be on the show for a handful of episodes, something tells me that she's not going to do well in her new position. Her character is said to "ruffle some feathers," and it sounds like she's ruffling the wrong ones right out the door.

Gossip columnist says Dirt is all wrong

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 4th 2007 7:38PM
courtney coxGossip columnist Janet Charlton says Courtney Cox has missed the mark in portraying the world of celebrity gossip magazines in the new FX series, Dirt. While Dirt portrays the paparazzi lifestyle as both glamorous and trashy, Charlton says the people working in the world of celebrity gossip don't take themselves--or their jobs--so seriously. And, she says, the scenes where Cox's character is walking freely at parties is crap. Gossip magazine editors, she says, would never be invited to premiere parties and whatnot. Charlton says Cox's "fatal error was making the show a dreadful melodrama/soap opera" when, in reality, working in celebrity gossip is a laugh.

While I don't know anything about the gossip biz (although I consume more than the healthy amount), I agree that it was super dark. The editor and reporters at Dirt magazine seem vindictive about the rich and famous... so vindictive that they'll set people up with hookers just to destroy their public persona.

FX orders up a full season of 'Dirt'

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 5th 2006 8:40AM
courtney coxFX wants more Courtney Cox. The cable network has ordered up a full season (13 episodes) of her drama, Dirt, about the world of tabloid magazines. There is one caveat: FX wants parts of the pilot to be re-shot to add more of Courtney Cox's character. She plays the editor of a tabloid and the powers-that-be at FX think she really shines in the role. Some of the supporting characters will also be re-cast. The show is about the world of celebrities, although most of the 'celebrities' on the program are fake, with the exception of David Fincher, director of Fight Club, who makes an appearance as himself in the pilot. The drama is being produced by the company owned by Cox and her husband, David Arquette.

While FX is sure about Dirt, it's still mulling over the drama, Lowlife, starring Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver.
