The worst part is not knowing. And while eight years of devastating uncertainty have destroyed Tony Hughes's life, this grieving father's resolve never weakens in the relentless hunt for his beloved son Oliver, who vanished in an instant on a summer night in 2006.
Premiering Saturday (9/8c) on Starz, which is on a high-quality roll of late, The Missing is an excellent eight-part British mystery reminiscent of The Killing and Broadchurch in its brooding anguish. The feeling of disoriented panic is intensified by staging the boy's tragic disappearance during a family vacation in France (filmed in beautiful Brussels), where the parents can't speak the language — and where the revelry surrounding the ongoing World Cup soccer games provides a jarring contrast to their fear and despair.
Get comfy and grab a big glass of vino, because the Cul-de-Sac Crew's farewell tour is about to begin.
The cast of TBS' wine-soaked comedy Cougar Town released a new music video on Thursday that
Cougar Town has been renewed for its sixth and final season, TVGuide.com has confirmed. TBS has ordered 13 episodes of the comedy, which will air in early 2015.
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....
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.
