The Boys' TV Pick of the Fall: Cougar Town! / Plus, Look Who's Twittering Is Back!

With NBC ceding five primetime hours a week to the consistently dull Jay Leno and the rest of the Big Three networks stocking their schedules with more and more reality shows and dance competitions, it's easy to get discouraged about the state of network television. But scripted comedies and dramas are not dead, and one in particular has caught the boys' attention this Fall season: ABC's Cougar Town.

Here's the synopsis from the network:

"Can a woman of a certain age be a mom, a successful career woman and still on the prowl? Jules Cobb (Courteney Cox) is about to give it a try in Cougar Town—the comedy that dares to tell the truth about dating after divorce."

Chip: "Just a few years ago we wanted to bone her because she was a sexy young Friend and now we want to bone her because she's a horny old lady. I predict this will be at least twice as good as Joey."


Local twitter enthusiasts gather in Larryville for a monthly "Twestival" to bond over their love of social networking (and we imagine many of them get drunk, exchange phone numbers, and 'sext' each other later in the evening). Tonight's event is at Jo Schmo's. Let's check out the bar's own Twitter page to find out tonight's special:

"$3 Wheats and $5 Absolut Skittle tinis Today!!!!"

It seems that Homer Simpson's idea of "Skittlebrau' is damn close to being fulfilled!

See you at Schmo's. Follow the bar on Twitter here:

Life's not all beer and skittles. Except in Larryville.

Jo Schmo's officially goes on my list of bars to never set foot in (again). The double whammy of sponsoring a Twitter get-together AND Skittle-tinis is just too much.

Diane Lane = Cougar
Courtney Cox = NOT Cougar

Well, I don't know what other bar you plan to play bocce in?! Certainly not the Replay! (although they did have "PBR bowling" for awhile).
