8:30 pm Cougar Town (ABC) | Season 3 premiere: Jules is miffed when Grayson (who has an ulterior motive) calls her “predictable;” Ellie frets that little Stan is turning into a “devil child,” or even worse: could grow up to be like Laurie; Travis likes his new off campus housing — until Bobby tries to convince him to take dog Travis in.
