Cougar Town: Season 1 (2009 - 2010)



Critic Consensus: Courteney Cox is a strong lead, but too often Cougar Town overdoses on attempts at edginess while ignoring its potentially interesting ideas.

Critic Reviews for Cougar Town Season 1

A title that the capable executive producer, Bill Lawrence, acknowledges might turn some people off. He needn't worry. The show itself has more than enough power to do that.

Cougar Town's stabs at edgy verbal humor rely on subjuvenile lines about reproductive anatomy.

Cougar Town is more amusing than it might sound here, with Cox's comedic timing a considerable plus.

Cougar Town is downright unwatchable, an agonizingly unfunny gutter-ball that will almost certainly be the first of the new season's shows to be canceled.

If there's anything here, it must be encoded and invisible to the naked eye.

As the woebegone divorcee with an antic streak and a full-blown need to get down, Cox is not believable.

The show is still too inconsistent to stand with the best comedies on television and it really paled in comparison to its freshman classmates of the form last year in "Glee," "Modern Family," and "Community," but there's a lot to like here.

Cox sucks you in so sweetly, who wouldn't swing along for the ride?

We know the rest of the web seems to disagree, but we really think that Cougar Town, like wine and its gorgeous star, has been getting better with age.

How good can a show called Cougar Town be? Well, not great at first. I didn't like the pilot much at all... [But] as I (and the writers) got to know the characters better, the show became infinitely more enjoyable.

Audience Reviews for Cougar Town: Season 1

Tried to hard to make it work. Cougar Town season 1 was a disaster with stereotypical stock characters and unbelievable dialogues. Did not laugh at all for the entire duration of the season. Courtney Cox tried and failed.
