Oh goodness! As if being BFFs with sad ole Jen Aniston weren’t bad enough, Courteney Cox of Friends fame has just signed on to star in a new sitcom about a newly-single 40-year-old mom called Cougar Town. Yes, Cougar Town. Yeah, as in a show about cougars.
Anyone who’s seen Cox’s previous series, Dirt, knows that it was cliched, condescending, poorly written, and totally boring. But Cougar Town? Really, Courteney Cox? The name of your new show is Cougar Town?
It’ll be co-exec produced by some dude named Bill Lawrence who apparently created Scrubs, a decent show. Perhaps I shouldn’t jump the gun and assume it’s gonna be terrible. But come on. Seriously, Bill Lawrence? You’re putting out a show called Cougar Town? You really wanna do that?
And anyway, aren’t cougars kind of 2k6? Next thing you know there’ll be a show about trucker hats.
