Jules’ inner circle includes next door neighbour Ellie (Christa Miller), her sarcastic, unapologetic confidante; Ellie’s average, but loveable husband, Andy (Ian Gomez); Grayson (Josh Hopkins), her boyfriend/neighbour from across the street; Laurie (Busy Philipps), her younger, feisty protégé; ex-husband Bobby (Brian Van Holt), a classic under-achiever, but full of heart; and Travis (Dan Byrd), her dry and witty son who more often than not is the adult observer amongst the group. Together, they make up “the cul-de-sac crew,” a dysfunctional, but supportive and caring extended family… even if they have a funny way of showing it sometimes. Read more & comment »

Courteney Cox has admitted that she never liked the title of her hit show Cougar Town.
It was revealed in 2010 that the former Friends star had been hoping to change the name of the show, based around her character Jules Cobb. However, executive producer Bill Lawrence later confessed that they had been unable to think up a fitting alternative.
“At first I think a lot of viewers were turned off by the title,” Cox told TV & Satellite Week. “It’s the worst title in the history of all television and a lot of people didn’t want to watch me with younger guys every week.
We have FINALLY got our first glimpse of Jennifer Aniston reuniting with Courtney Cox on the set of Cougar Town.
The ‘The Switch’ actress will join her former Friend’s co-star in the new series of the ABC show, in an episode titled “All Mixed Up.” She will play “a therapist Jules (played by Courtney) has been using for a while” and show boss Bill Lawrence hinted that it won’t be a one off appearance,. He said:
Courtney Cox was spotted snogging her husband David Arquette at an NBA baskteball game in Los Angeles last night, presumably trying to once and for all quash rumours that she has been having an affair.
It was from the lips of nuttier-than-squirrel-poo Steven Baldwin on Celebrity Big Brother that I first heard the term ‘Cougar’, as applied to women of a certain age who like to do the do with men who’re much younger.
So, armed with that knowledge, and knowing that the writer of Cougar Town is Bill Lawrence – who also wrote Scrubs – I thought I knew what to expect of Cougar Town; I thought it would be fast-paced, amusingly anarchic, full of witty one liners and tinged with occasional sad ‘reality check’ moments.
And judging by last night’s pilot episode and the one that followed it, Cougar Town does have all those things, but it felt rather like the whole raison d’être of the show is to be a hybrid of Desperate Housewives and SATC. Read more & comment »
