The move from ABC to TBS was off to a decent start for one sitcom. TBS's Cougar Town scored solid deliveries among the network's target demos this past Tuesday night at 10pm, drawing more than 1.3 million adults 18-49 (1.1 rating) and 613,000 adults 18-34 (0.9 rating) in Live + Same Day following a syndicated repeat of The Big Bang Theory at 9:30. The season opener also welcomed a total of 2.18 million viewers and a 1.5 household rating, as it launched in its new network home and skewed very young. All this is lower than the last two comedy premieres -- Men at Work: 2.65 million total and 1.63 million adults 18-49 -- Sullivan & Son: 2.5 million total viewers and the same 1.3 million adults 18-49. However, those were brand new series, while Cougar Town was a fourth season debut. And those shows were multi-camera and dropped some in subsequent weeks, but TBS still picked them up for second seasons. Cougar Town was picked-up for a fourth and fifth season on TBS and if it keeps these ratings up, it will be fine with less pressure here on TBS.
Cougar Town - which stars Courteney Cox, Brian Van Holt, Christa Miller, Ian Gomez, Josh Hopkins, Busy Philipps and Dan Byrd - airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on TBS. The series follows a family of friends who keep things funny as they support each other through the challenges and pitfalls of life - with a little dysfunction and a whole lot of wine.
Home Improvement reunion tonight on Tim Allen's Last Man Standing at 8|7c on ABC. Richard Karn guests.

Last Man Standing - "War Games" (ABC, 8:00PM ET/PT) (Repeat)
hen Boyd gets sent home early from a birthday party for starting a game of “war,” Ryan insists Mike stop exposing his son to action movies and video games. Meanwhile, Vanessa hopes budding fashion designer, Mandy, can help her look awesome when she meets with her still hot-looking college roommates.
Cristela - "Pilot" (ABC, 8:30PM ET/PT) (Repeat)
Cristela’s dream of becoming a lawyer is something her traditional Mexican-American family doesn't quite understand. She’s entering her sixth year of law school after juggling home obligations and working multiple jobs to pay her way. Cristela lives in cramped quarters with her sister Daniela, her long-suffering brother-in-law Felix and their two young kids. The senior member of this extended family, all living under one roof in Dallas, is Cristela’s old school mom, Natalia. After six years of setbacks, her mom Natalia worries that becoming a lawyer might not be in the cards for her and doesn't want Cristela to be hurt by a dream that might not come true. Then, Cristela’s life begins to look up. Lawyer Trent Culpepper, who is unapologetically politically incorrect about Latinos and just about everyone else, offers her an internship at his prestigious firm. She’ll be working – unpaid – with Culpepper’s pampered daughter Maddie and good-natured fellow intern Josh.
