  • I thought ABC said it was going to give it a good timeslot. I guess it is better than nothing, here is hoping it does well so it can have a fourth season. :)

    • My thought exactly when I read this post….

    • Doesn’t that put it up against NCIS? And worse yet the second half of NCIS. That seems nearly suicidal to me.

      • And against Glee & The Biggest Loser. Really tough time slot I think.

    • Has anybody figured out why ABC hates this show so much? Holding out much wine soaked hope for this fantastic show!

  • Finally!!! I’ve waited too long for this show! Hopefully NBC follows suit and brings back community!!!

  • You are not the first person to write or tweet about this. How can you say it’s a TVLine exclusive?

    • Who said it first? Bill Lawrence hasn’t even tweeted about it yet.

    • ABC Publicity just tweeted this link saying TVLine got the exclusive. So if anyone else has it, they’re probably piggybacking.

      • According to my Twitter timeline this morning someone from Zap2It tweeted it first. Notice the heading now has “Exclusive” taken out of it. I don’t care who got the scoop first. I’m pumped either way.

  • Seems strange to start it on a holiday night. Hope it does well. Seems like they’d be better pairing The middle with last man standing and C town with Happy Endings.

  • Boo at it being against NCIS. I’m going to have to wait until wednesday morning to watch it now

  • In the CT poster it looks like Josh Hopkins is holding a drink that got photoshopped out.

    Great poster and tagline, though!

    Comment by Jeff – January 17, 2012 11:14 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • He is holding a drink.

      Comment by Jacob – January 17, 2012 11:28 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Ha! He is! I thought the wine/drink was Courtney’s jeans. Hard to see…ooops!

  • I have a huge grin on my face! Can’t wait to pound grape with the Crew on 2/13. Just called the BF and said we are staying in on Valentine’s because I’ve got to catch up with the crew!

    • Oops, 2/14. I was too excited to proofread.

  • That poster is great.

    Comment by Mitholas – January 17, 2012 11:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Great that it’s back on, crap that it’s against NCIS, which has been winning the ratings race in that time slot for years.

    Comment by Jeff – January 17, 2012 11:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Invisible hat tip to you ABC!!!!

    Comment by the girl – January 17, 2012 11:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I love the tagline! But seriously, a title change still would’ve been great for ratings resurgence (probably).

    Comment by Mal – January 17, 2012 11:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • YAY! And three cheers for it landing in a spot that doesn’t conflict my DVR!

  • Break out the wine (or hide it)!

    Abed must be so pleased.

    Comment by aleksa – January 17, 2012 12:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • With Community shelved, we may never know what Abed is feeling. Slap out of it NBC! If ABC can bring Cougar Town back you can bring Community back too!

  • Love this series but, Good god, who Photoshopped this lot? Was it someone with cataracts?

  • Sweet merciful Zeus – thank goodness. Now all we need are great ratings to ensure that ABC fully recognizes their colossal mistake. Big Joe’s all around!

    Comment by bitchstolemyremote – January 17, 2012 12:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • YAY!!! My own Big Carl is ready to go. I am so glad that ABC is bringing one of my fav shows back – it’s sad that the only reason is that their other shows have to fail before they give this the chance it so rightly deserves. Networks just don’t give shows the chance they used to. But who cares why – just going to raise my giant wineglass and enjoy it!!!!

  • Thanks ABC for making COUGAR TOWN the perfect Valentine’s Day gift now that MAN UP and WORK IT are out of their misery. Now it’s time for NBC to come up with a plan on when and if COMMUNITY comes back. Almost forgot about one thing if ABC is willing to renew C-Town for another season depending on the sitcom’s ratings.

    Comment by kevin – January 17, 2012 12:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • While this timeslot is not ideal, it is setting Tuesday nights up to be a great night of comedy, Cougar Town, New Girl, Raising Hope. A solid 90 minutes right there. Sweeeeeet!

    Comment by Dash – January 17, 2012 12:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yes!!!

    About time ABC.

    Comment by Eliza – January 17, 2012 01:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Poor Bill Lawrence, who also created Scrubs. I feel like Cougar Town is treated the same way Scrubs was handled on NBC. Two very funny, quirky shows that are treated like orphans. And Cougar Town is much less silly than Scrubs. Don’t get me wrong — I love silliness when it’s funny.

    Comment by Davey – January 17, 2012 01:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • So are they changing the title or not? I’m tired of hearing Bill Lawrence complain about it. Either pick a new one or shut up about it.

    Comment by Abe Froman – January 17, 2012 01:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • FINALLY!! Counting down until Feb 14th! Welcome back cul-de-sac crew!!!!!!!! Penny caaaaaaaaaan!

    Comment by JJ – January 17, 2012 01:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I heart Cougartown!! Maybe I will watch ABC now. Still scorned over AMC and OLTL being canceled. What the heck is going on over their anyway..?
    SMH….

  • Awesome! I just started watching this show a few days ago. I was one of the many people who refused because of the name but I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about it. I’m so glad I started because it’s so funny! I love it!
