Cougar Town Gets an Official Return Date

COUGAR TOWN - "Something Good Coming," Parts 1 and 2 - Jules and crew make plans for a group vacation, on the Season Finale of ABC's "Cougar Town," WEDNESDAY, MAY 25 (9:31-10:30 p.m., ET). When Travis abruptly moves to Hawaii, the gang go after him and decide to spend their vacation there too. As Jules struggles with Travis' choice, Grayson tells her he's keen on having kids. Meanwhile, Bobby acts as Ellie and Andy's vacation surrogate, and Laurie hatches a plan to lure Travis back home.

Cougar Town finally has an official return date. The show's third season will premiere at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14, ABC announced today, meaning the much-missed comedy is taking over the slot vacated by the culture and comedic blackhole Work It. The sweet, precious relief of having Cougar Town back is slightly tainted, however, by the less-than-ideal lead-in of Last Man Standing — which does okayish in the ratings, but seems like a lousy tonal match for the warmer, sillier Cougar. Now all we need is a return date for Community and the whole Internet can take a well-deserved day off.
