Cougar Town: Season Five Ratings

2 April 2014 9:17 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though Cougar Town's ratings dropped quite a bit when the sitcom moved from ABC to TBS, it was still one of the cable channel's highest-rated original series. Will it continue to be a success? Is it essentially guaranteed to be renewed because of syndication? Stay tuned!

Cougar Town continues to follow Jules Cobb (Courteney Cox) and her wine-loving friends and family members. The rest of the cast includes Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Josh Hopkins, Ian Gomez, and Brian Van Holt.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Final season averages: 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.47 million total viewers.

She reveals to Healthy Hollywood she made her now five year old daughter, Birdie's baby food. "When Birdie was a baby it was hard to find organic, minimally processed baby food. There were only a few companies and it was expensive so because of that I made all of her baby food. My husband and I got into this habit ...

“Game of Thrones” Plans Its End Date, Billy Eichner is Back “On the Street” and “Nashville” Wants More Oliver Hudson

12 March 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

CBS has set up a site for fans of How I Met Your Mother to send a farewell message through various social media sites. The collection of sentiment is enough to make me stop muttering about how the comedy should have ended seasons ago.

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss tell EW that they see a seven-season run for the fantasy drama. “Seven gods, seven kingdoms, seven seasons. It feels right to us.” I’d find that comforting, but that also leaves a good amount of time for things to go wrong.

Then again, how wrong can things get as long as Lady Olenna keeps dropping the quips.

Based on my experience with The Vampire Diaries, my reaction to hearing about the surprise departure on The Originals was a shrug, but that’s based entirely on how irritating the character was on The Vampire Diaries. For »

"A Case of You" is a Case of Familiar Cliches Working Out

28 February 2014 2:30 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Facebook has changed the way people meet one another and how we learn more about people shortly after departing from their company. “Facebook stalking” has become a common enough of a concept that we now have a romance based on that very concept: A Case of You. While everything about it is pretty obvious after the first 30 minutes, from the conflict to the resolution, it still has enough charm and a few good performances to make it worth watching. Director Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy doesn’t have a whole lot of comedy, but its sincerity and cast (Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood, Sam Rockwell, Busy Philipps, Peter Dinklage, Brendan Fraser) give it some heft.

Wonder Which Celebrities Are Godparents For Their Famous Friends?

24 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

When it comes to choosing godparents, people often pick those closest to them to inspire and provide guidance to their child. So it's no surprise that most celebrity kids end up with very big stars influencing their upbringing. Steven Spielberg is godfather to a pair of huge stars, Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow, and Nicole Richie's got two superstar goddads of her own. Michelle Williams's little girl, Matilda Ledger, calls Jake Gyllenhaal and Busy Philipps her honorary parents, while Courteney Cox looked to Bff Jennifer Aniston to take the role of godmother to her daughter, Coco Arquette. See more sets of surprising celebrity godparents, including Elton John, Hugh Grant, and Lady Gaga, when you scroll through now. View Slideshow › »

Et Joins Kristen Bell in Fight with Paparazzi

20 February 2014 9:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kristen Bell gets some help from Et.

Et is joining forces with Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell and her husband Parenthood actor Dax Shepard in their fight against paparazzi taking pictures of celebrities' children without consent. Et has agreed to not air these photos or videos.

Since the birth of their daughter, Bell and Shepard have been vocal on this topic and decline interviews with media outlets known to purchase images from the paparazzi. Both actors have passionately campaigned, especially through their personal social media platforms, to motivate others and bring more attention to this cause. Media outlets using images celebrities post on their own social media platforms or of children attending red carpets and media events are not the issue.

By joining forces, Et and the couple hope that additional press outlets will follow their lead. Et's sister show, The Insider independently adapted the “no kids” policy after meeting with Bell.

'Cougar Town's' Busy Philipps shares screen with daughter Birdie: 'She's already letting it go to her head'

28 January 2014 4:15 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

On Tuesday's (Jan. 28) episode of "Cougar Town," star Busy Philipps will share some screen time with a very special co-star: Her daughter Birdie Silverstein.

In a storyline focused on her character Laurie's cake shop, Philipps' 4-year-old daughter appears as a young customer -- a part the actress tells Zap2it was written with Birdie in mind.

"Well, she's been on set since she was about six months old, when we shot the pilot. She came almost every day for the first two years of the show, until she started preschool," Philipps says. "She's really used to being on set and being around everyone in the crew, but when they wrote that part, in the script, it said, 'A little girl enters the cake shop played by Birdie Silverstein.' [They] just thought it would be fun to have her in a scene."

"So I asked her if she wanted to do »

'Cougar Town' Season 5 premiere: 'All or Nothing' feels a little closer to nothing

7 January 2014 7:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Five seasons in, "Cougar Town" has officially settled into its formulaic groove - for better or worse.

During its Season 5 premiere on Tuesday (Jan. 7), its second season on new network TBS, fans of the Cul-de-Sac Crew got exactly what they've come to expect: A goofy mixture of jokes of the long-running inside and meta varieties, with a final act that exhibits some actual emotion and sentiment. And while that formula has proven a winning one for the last four seasons, it all feels a little hollow here.

The A-story, which follows Courteney Cox's Jules as she struggles to accept Travis (Dan Byrd) and Laurie's (Busy Philipps) new relationship, goes through the usual motions. There's the requisite creepy comments from Jules regarding, oh you know, her son, which goes so far as to actually have her (accidentally) touch a part of his body that kicks that Oedipal thing into hyperdrive. »

'Cougar Town' preview: Five scoops on the new season

7 January 2014 1:25 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Five seasons into Cougar Town, creator Bill Lawrence knows not to mess with something that works. And Cougar Town — in all of its wine-soaked, zany, fun glory — works.

That’s why you won’t see a fifth season, which premieres tonight on TBS, full of curve balls or too many guest stars (save one, which we’ll get to). “In the past, when I’ve had shows that go on for a long time — like the 6 or 7th year of Scrubs– I’ve thrown curveballs into it that ultimately weren’t satisfying,” says Lawrence, who handed over daily duties to »

6 January 2014 5:24 PM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

The question of will they or won't they was buried long ago for Cougar Town's main couple Jules (Courteney Cox) and Grayson (Josh Hopkins), who tied the knot at the end of Season 3 in a spontaneous but romantic beachside ceremony. However, just as the mystery surrounding their future died down, the questions surrounding whether Jules' son, Travis (Dan Byrd) and her best friend Laurie (Busy Philipps) heated up. Now in Season 5, which premieres Tuesday at 10/9c on TBS, the flirtatious twosome are giving this relationship thing a go. How will Jules react? Non-spoiler alert: Not well!
