    is this parenthood’s season finale?

  2. kees says:

    No. There’s one more episode after tonight.

  3. A.B. says:

    So is cougar town just picking stories off of friends now? I read the description of tonight’s show and what I pictured in my head was the episode when Courteney Cox’s character Monica starts to date Tom Seleck’s character the guys Chandler and Joey start to grow mustaches. No original thought in Hollywood.
