    The headline is deceiving. This girl has barely been on the show, when I saw scene stealer I was expecting to see Busy Phillips or at least Barb!

    Looking forward to Counter Culture (but is that the best title they could come up with?, and yes, I do “get” it). About Cougar Town, I haven’t watched in a while. Grayson has a baby mama? Was it from a casual hookup before he hooked up with Jules?

    I thought she was hilarious! But I really miss Barb! Is she coming back at all??
