TBS picks up 'Cougar Town' for 15-episode season


There's good news and bad news for fans of Florida-set comedy Cougar Town. First the bad news: It will no longer be on ABC after this season. The good news: It will be moving to TBS, which wants to ensure it has no serious programming anywhere on its schedule.

"Cougar Town is a smart, whimsical sitcom that draws its humor from likable, relatable characters," TBS, TNT and TCM president  Michael Wright said in a statement to "We are thrilled to have Cougar Town moving to the TBS neighborhood as the network continues to expand its slate of original comedy series."

The network also acquired rerun rights for the first three seasons, guaranteeing you won't see the same 15 episodes that have been ordered for season four over and over again. Let's see if they still keep it on Tuesdays when it debuts in 2013.
