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.
