Final Season of Cougar Town Starts Jan. 6; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of November 10, 2014)

Cougar Town

It's time for "one last pour" everybody! TBS has announced that the final season of Cougar Town will premiere on Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at 10:30pm on TBS following Bill Lawrence's other sitcom Ground Floor, which returns on Dec. 9. Once again it will air on Tuesday nights and the season will consist of 13 episodes. Back to Cougar Town, Courteney Cox stars as Jules Cobb, a recently remarried mom who is never far from her wine and her friends, including her husband, Grayson (Josh Hopkins); her under-achieving ex-husband, Bobby (Brian Van Holt); her next-door neighbor and confidante, Ellie (Christa Miller); her feisty protégé, Laurie (Busy Philipps); and Ellie's loveably average husband, Andy (Ian Gomez). They are frequently joined by Jules' son, Travis (Dan Byrd), who tends to be far more mature than anyone else in the group.

Watch the hilarious music video announcing the final return:
