I was going to put where she belongs, but maybe where I can tolerate her is more accurate. I just didn't buy her recent portrayal as a mean tabloid magazine editor, perhaps it is just my small mind not being able to see her as anything but Monica Gellar for the rest of her life, but Ted Danson sold the transition from chummy bartender Sam Malone to villainous CEO Arthur on Damages, so I'm thinking its got something to do with Courteney. Anyway, Cox is on a new comedy about a 40-year-old with a 17-year-old son who is newly single. It is unsurprisingly called Cougar Town.
Despite the annoying name (I am so over the use of the word cougar), it's got Bill Lawrence behind it and he made Scrubs, so I'm remotely hopeful that this could actually be good. It kind of sounds like a sexier version of The New Adventures of Old Christine, which is kinda watchable sometimes (thanks to Wanda Sykes!), so again... remaining cautiously optimistic. Cougar Town may have appearances by Lawrence's wife Christa Miller and I kind of love her, especially when she's being bitchy, so it gets bonus points for that. I'll be interested to see Cox's three-episode stint on Scrubs this winter before making my final judgment call on it.
Your thoughts? Are you happy that Courteney Cox is going back to a comedy, or are you still mourning the loss of Dirt?
