I didn't see a thread about this although people were talking about it on another thread, so here it is. Our newspaper's reviewer said this show was "filthy," so I was worried it wouldn't be well received, but Courtney Cox was funny in the same way she always is. But then again we loved Kath and Kim, another outrageous show set in Florida with a comedically gifted middle-aged woman at the center, and that is gone now, so maybe we are just out of sync with "middle America." If the gentle yet hilarious Kath and Kim couldn't survive, how will the boundary-pushing Cougar Town stand a chance? I am rooting for it, though. Two and a Half Men has way more offensive jokes and situations and is a perennial favorite, so if Cougar Town tanks I will suspect a double standard is to blame.
