A week's worth of notable TV has been crammed into one very busy night. Let's take it from the top.
Courteney Cox, Brian Van Holt
Cougar Town is not, we repeat, not a show about cougars. So what is it about? That's the question facing some newcomers just now learning about the ensemble comedy now that it's become the subject of a persistent marketing campaign from new home TBS.
Winter TV Preview: Where we left off on Cougar Town and more returning shows
For those who missed the show's first three seasons, Cougar Town is really about Jules (Courteney Cox), a fortysomething
alcoholic wine connoisseur who used to be married to lovable slacker Bobby (Brian Van Holt), but recently took the plunge again with her neighbor Grayson (Josh Hopkins). Jules has two best friends: the young and loud Laurie (Busy Philipps) and the icy, judgmental Ellie (Christa Miller). Ellie's whipped husband Andy (Ian Gomez) is Bobby's BFF, as is Bobby and Jules' college-age son, Travis (Dan Byrd), who kind of has a thing for Laurie. Whew!

What a difference a year makes.
A year ago, Cougar Town was waiting (and waiting) to start its third season on ABC after two acclaimed but low-rated seasons. ABC had held the show for midseason and didn't announce a return date until after eight months off the air. Now going into its fourth season (beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 10/9c) — its first on TBS — the show's return is no secret thanks to a constant stream of commercials and a...
Josh Hopkins, Courteney Cox
Our favorite wine-guzzling cul-de-sac crew is headed for some major changes on Cougar Town — and we're not just talking about the recent passing of Big Carl (R.I.P old friend!) Tuesday's hour-long season finale (8/7c on ABC) will see the gang migrate west to Napa for Jules (Courteney Cox) and Grayson's (Josh Hopkins) wedding. But will they actually tie the knot?
Behind the scenes, the episode marks the comedy's last hurrah on ABC before it moves to TBS for Season 4. The change also includes a new showrunner who will take over the day-to-day duties from co-creators and executive producers Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel. But fans should rest assured: Lawrence and Biegel aren't going anywhere. Lawrence talked with TVGuide.com about the wedding-themed season finale, the move to TBS, his involvement next season and why Big Carl had to go...
Fox is bringing a little bit of drama to Cougar Town regular Ian Gomez's life.
Cougar Town fans, the wait is over. Season 3 will premiere on Tuesday, Feb. 14, ABC announced Tuesday.
When the Courteney Cox-fronted comedy returns with an episode titled "Ain't Love Strange," Jules (Cox) is upset when Grayson (Josh Hopkins) calls her "predictable," and Ellie (Christa Miller) worries that Stan is coming a "devil child."

bottle glass of vino, TVLine reports.
Their roles are being kept under wraps, but Braff and Maschio's appearances are part of a much larger Sacred Heart reunion. The duo will appear in the same episode as Sarah Chalke — who will recur as Bobby's girlfriend this coming season — and...
Mama Avery has come to town!
In this week's episode of Grey's Anatomy, Jackson's mother, Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen) has come to Seattle Grace to perform a groundbreaking penis transplant surgery — and if that's not awkward enough for Jackson, Catherine sets her sights on finally getting April to lose her virginity. Plus: Baby Zola is rushed to the hospital, and Alex has to keep it a secret! Let's check out the top moments from Thursday's episode:
Christa Miller and Courteney Cox
The stars of Cougar Town are about to appear on your TV screen a lot sooner than their scheduled midseason return.
"We decided it might be funny to say our cast is going to be on in the fall more than any other cast," executive producer Bill Lawrence told USA Today. The result is that his actors will appear in background roles on numerous shows before the Season 3 premiere.
Sarah Chalke is going to Cougar Town, TVLine reports.
The Scrubs star has landed a multi-episode arc on the ABC sitcom as Angie, Travis' photography teacher who ...
