TV Land Reveals Stunning 'Cougar'; ABC Moves Scrubs Wednesday Premiere Up a Week

Stacey Anderson, a stunning 40-year-old successful realtor from Scottsdale, Arizona, has been named as the "Cougar" in TV Land's new original series The Cougar. The eight-episode series, which is hosted by Vivica A. Fox, follows Anderson as she searches for love among a pool of 20 eligible twenty-something men. The one-hour elimination dating series is executive produced by Mike Fleiss (The Bachelor) through his NEXT Entertainment production company in association with Warner Horizon Television and premieres on April 15th at 10:00 pm ET/PT on TV Land PRIME.
For years, Stacey has believed that society has placed a double standard on women who date younger men, and she is here to prove that age is nothing but a number. Stacey's dating experiences have led her to believe that men her age and older live under the pressure of a "ticking clock," which dampens their spontaneity and zest for life. Essential to Stacey's personal success is her upbeat optimism and zeal, which have not been tainted by life's adversities. She believes that younger men have the same spirited zest for life, a demeanor Stacey finds crucial for her future love interest to possess, a love interest that she plans to find on The Cougar.
In her spare time, Stacey gives back to her community by helping to acquire affordable land for the nonprofit organization Habitat for Humanity. She also enjoys an active lifestyle by playing tennis, golf, hiking and swimming.
Stacey is currently a realtor who, in only her first year in the commercial real estate business, was ranked in the top 1% of realtors nationwide for sales over 50 million dollars.

Meanwhile, ABC has announced it will move the new night and time premiere of Scrubs up a week from March 18 to March 11. Scrubs is on the move to Wednesdays at 8pm and will lead-into new sitcom Better off Ted starring Jay Harrington. Though Ted will still start in its original date of March 18, so we get an encore episode of Scrubs on March 11 at 8:30pm. As of now, Scrubs is still slated to air in its Tuesday at 9pm hour on March 3 and 10 with encore episodes. This coming Tuesday is President Obama's Address to Congress.
In other ABC schedule updates, a two-hour episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is slated for Sunday, Mach 29 from 8-10pm, leading into an encore of Desperate Housewives at 10pm. So no new Housewives that week, but it will be new on March 8, 15 and 22 that month. And finally the annual showing of the classic The Ten Commandments will air on Saturday, April 11 from 7-11pm on ABC.
