Cougar Town Exclusive: Partridge Family Icon Shirley Jones Joins the Cul-de-Sac Crew!

Shirley Jones Cougar TownI think I love this.

Partridge Family matriarch Shirley Jones has landed a guest stint on the upcoming fourth season of Cougar Town, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Jones will play one half of a couple that agrees to purchase the house next to Jules (who has the listing) and Grayson under one condition: That they be welcomed into the Cul-de-Sac Crew.

On the plus side, Jules the Realtor scores an easy sale and two new friends (albeit of the elderly variety) in the process. On the downside, Jules the Friend compromises the sanctity of her liquor league — all for a quick buck.

Which Jules will ultimately prevail? Seeing as how Jones is only booked for one episode, conventional wisdom gives Jules the Friend the edge.

Jones’ episode will air near the end of Cougar Town‘s fourth season, which debuts Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 10/9c on ABC TBS.

    I love Shirley Jones….and have for 40+ years. I’m not ashamed to say I still love and play Partridge Family tunes all the time in my car–it’s great music. And what kid didn’t want Shirley to be his mom? I wish this talented Oscar-winner was on our screens weekly.

      I’m glad you’re not ashamed to say it, because I do, too!

      Sadly for Canadians like me, I still haven’t heard of any Canadian channels picking up Cougar Town, so I guess we’ll have to wait to see this on DVD. :-(

    I’m glad to see her – and Cougar Town again – too. What a classy woman.

    Shirley Jones – the very best. Classy lady and great talent. I grew up watching the Partridge family, and I remember her guest appearance(s) on the Drew Carey show a few years ago – fantastic. Looking forward to seeing Shirley join the cul-de-sac. The obvious question – will she be playing ‘penny-can’ with the gang? I hope so.

    Wow, I cannot believe Ms. Jones agreed to be on this crap ass show. I thought she had a little more class.
