Cougar Town's Dan Byrd on Why Travis and Laurie Were "Inevitable" and Body Doubles

Courteney Cox, Dan Byrd, Busy Philipps

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! Byrd talked with TVGuide.com about why a Travis-Laurie romance was "inevitable," the bumps ahead in their relationship and just why Byrd wanted no say in picking his body double.... read more

The Tuesday Playlist: That's a Wrap For Voice Blind Auditions, Cougar Town

Jamila Thompson

The curtain comes down on the best part of TV's hottest singing competition, as the "blind auditions" portion of NBC's The Voice reaches its final act (Tuesday, 8/7c) with the selection of the last members of the four coaches' teams. Any fears that the show would lose its oomph this season with new bodies in the hot seats were quickly put to rest when Usher eased onto his swiveling throne with charismatic grace, adopting a signature "one leg up" posture that was parodied last weekend on Saturday Night Live, while Shakira proved a worthy adversary to the boys' club with her feisty attitude, passion and humor.

The A-Z Guide to Cougar Town

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!

Cougar Town Team on TBS Move: "It Was Really Refreshing" to Be Embraced

Cougar Town

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... read more

Wednesday TV in Review: Chelsea, Face Off, Middle, Harry and More

Face Off

Knock knock. Who's there? Chelsea. Chelsea who?

No, make that Chelsea why? The answer to the question posed in NBC's squalid new sitcom Are You There, Chelsea? (8:30/7:30c) is "not really." Based on late-night spitfire Chelsea Handler's potty-mouthed party-girl memoirs — but dropping the Vodka from the title because that might be, you know, offensive — this smutty but toothless misfire puzzlingly reduces Handler to a supporting role: that of a mousy, whiny born-again sister to the fictional Chelsea, played by That '70s Show's Laura Prepon with a one-note husky-voiced crassness that grows stale long before the first scene (in a women's jail cell) ends with Glee's Dot Marie Jones leering at Chelsea. Which is maybe the only sexual advance Chelsea spurns. As long as she can be on top. Which she mentions a lot.
