List of Cougar Town episodes

The second season of Cougar Town, an American television series, began airing on September 22, 2010 and concluded on May 25, 2011. Season two regular cast members include Courteney Cox, Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Brian Van Holt, Dan Byrd, Ian Gomez, and Josh Hopkins. The sitcom was created by Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel.

Casting[edit]

As of July 30, 2010, former Friends star Jennifer Aniston was in talks with series producers that resulted in her reuniting on-screen with Courteney Cox.[2] Lisa Kudrow guest starred in the season one episode Rhino Skin. On August 23, 2010, ABC announced that Aniston will make a guest appearance on the Season 2 premiere. She will play Glenn, Jules' (played by Cox) shrink.[3] On August 9, 2010, it was confirmed that Ryan Devlin will be back for multiple episodes as Smith, newbie lawyer and love interest of Laurie.[4] Michael Ausiello, from Entertainment Weekly, also reported, on August 4, 2010, that Travis will make a gay friend in this season, and that the show's producers are casting the role of Travis’ "enormous jock-y college roommate" named Kevin.[5] On August 10, 2010, it was revealed that Jeremy Sisto might be playing Ellie's ex-boyfriend, as Christa Miller teased that idea to her husband, the show's creator.[6] On August 11, 2010, it was reported that Bill Lawrence is game on for a Scrubs reunion, where he said that "either Sarah Chalke, Zach Braff, John C. McGinley, Donald Faison or Judy Reyes will be on the show this year". If that reunion episode happen, than it would mark the second time that Christa Miller and John C. McGinley worked together, as they had previously portrayed husband and wife in that show.[7] On September 3, 2010, it was revealed that Ken Jenkins, who previously worked with the show's creator Bill Lawrence in Scrubs, will be portraying Jules father on the Halloween-themed episode, scheduled to air on October 27, 2010.[8] On September 30, 2010, Michael Ausiello reported that Collette Wolfe is joining the series as a love interest for Travis.[9] On October 29, 2010, it was announced by Morgan Jeffery, from Digital Spy, that Zach Braff would guest star in an upcoming episode this season where he'll appear in animated form when Laurie downloads an "appetizer app" to her cell phone that features the star offering culinary advice.[10] On November 2, 2010 it was reported by Matt Webb Mitovich, from Fancast, that newcomer Jennifer Cortese is playing Grayson's ex-wife Vivian, and her first appearance will be on the Thanksgiving episode, When the Time Comes.[11]

Production[edit]

On January 12, 2010 Cougar Town was picked up for a second season by ABC. On May 11, 2010, the show's creator, Bill Lawrence, said that he was considering changing the series' title since the name Cougar Town wasn't well received by the viewers.[12] However, on July 30, 2010, he said that the show would keep its original name.[13]

It was announced by ABC that the show will be put on a major hiatus, returning on April 18, 2011 after a shortened Dancing with the Stars and return to its original timeslot on April 20, 2011[14] as the new show Mr. Sunshine will premiere in Cougar Town's timeslot.[15]

Reception[edit]

The second season of Cougar Town received generally favorable reviews from critics. The season currently holds an average score of 75 out of 100 on Metacritic, based on 7 reviews, indicating 'generally favorable reviews'.[16] Tim Stack from Entertainment Weekly regarded the season in a positive light, citing that "very few shows can get away with genuine moments of emotion while also incorporating the phrase 'dead-baby tacos.'" Hitfix writer Alan Sepinwall also gave a positive review of the show, saying that "midway through the first season the writers realized their cast was so funny together that the wisest course was to just put everyone together as often as possible. By the end of the season, it was often funnier many weeks than the Modern Family episode leading into it. This is still the show that Cougar Town became at mid-season last year."[17]

The gang creates a new game called Movie Mash-up, where they mix up movies titles and the winner takes wine, and Jules is feeling bad because she's not very good at the game.

When Glenn tells Jules that it's not a bad thing to give Grayson some free time without her, Jules decides to run into Glenn outside her office. However, when Glenn sees Jules coming, she tries to speed away, but she plows into a parked car. Ellie begins to suspect that Glenn might not be as good as Jules think when she notes that Glenn hadn't left a note on the person's car. Jules refuses to believe this until she realizes that Gabriel is Glenn's dog, not her son, which is enough to end their good relationship. Bobby has been having a hard time dealing with Jules and Grayson's dating, and he takes out his anger by drawing on Jules' advertising face.
