Wednesday“Cougar Town’’ (ABC)
Sitcom from “Scrubs’’ creator
Stars: Courteney Cox, Busy Philipps, Christa Miller
The concept: The title refers to the local high school mascot. Oh yeah, and a 40-something divorcee (Cox) trying to reenter the singles world. She’s learning dating lessons a few decades behind schedule.
Our take: I hate this title like I hate the similarly misleading title of “Hung.’’ The show has the potential to be more than a one-joke affair, although Cox hitting on high schoolers is not exactly ha-ha funny. Let’s see how it develops. Love Philipps, a lesser known “Freaks and Geeks’’ alum, as a gal pal.
Alternate name: “Boytox’’
Grade: C+ (Sept. 23)From left: Courteney Cox and Busy Philipps.
