'Cougar Town' gets a fifth season on TBS

Break out the oversized wine glasses!

The Courteney Cox comedy "Cougar Town" has been picked up for a fifth season on TBS.

The network, which shares a parent company with CNN, announced on Monday that it's ordered 13 more episodes.

"'Cougar Town' has been everything we hoped it would be: a smart, big-hearted, laugh-out-loud comedy that shines a bright light on the TBS brand," said Michael Wright, TBS' president and head of programming.

This is just two months after the comedy made its cable debut on TBS after switching over from ABC.

The cult comedy has seen a bit of revival since moving from network to cable. According to Entertainment Weekly, the show has averaged 2.8 million viewers and ranks among TBS' top programs.

The new season of "Cougar Town" is expected to bow in 2014, with the current season finale scheduled for April 9 at 10 p.m.

    I think the only reason the show does well is because it's sandwiched between two episodes of Big Bang Theory!

    Oh poor Nick, you would only know that if you watched it which would make you...

    All fictional (and most "reality") tv, movies, webshows are escapism. People watch them because they want to. If this show makes 2.8 million people laugh, good for them? If 8 million people are happy watching a cop catch a bad guy every week, good for them. It is what gives people their release.

    For you Nick, I guess it is trolling the internet and complaining about things you don't like. I guess if it gives you release, good for you.
