With Beyonce's SINGLE LADIES picture/music montage in episode 2, COUGAR TOWN became THE FUNNIEST SITCOM OF THE FALL! I have yet to watch episode 3, but I am encouraged by the writing and tone. This show is NOT trying to be all THE OFFICE or 30 ROCK Emmy-hungry. INSTEAD, its meant to make me laugh, and with its sexualized context, Courteny Cox has made COUGAR TOWN wholly and originally her own. MEOW!
