What do YOU think of Courteney Cox as a cougar?

22 May 2009

Apart from being 'Jen's BFF' (most weeks anyway), it is important to remember that Courteney Cox is AN ACTRESS. A working one at that. And even though her last TV show, Dirt, didn't last the distance, she's back to show us that there's more to being CC than shrill laments about the state of your apartment. In new upcoming US TV show Cougar Town, Courteney plays a 40-something single mother specialising in prowling for younger men. Since clips aired Stateside, the internet has been awash with debate over whether or not it will actually be any good.

Points for:
1) It also stars Busy Phillips out of Dawson's Creek
2) ER has ended, Gossip Girl season 2 is coming to a finale, and there's only so many times we can watch our Sky+d Inbetweeners and Flight of the Conchords

Points against:
1) We're slightly over the whole cougar thing. It makes us think of Sharon Stone. And we don't like to do that too much.
2) It's hard enough for us to find hot boys. If Courteney's dipping into our pool, what hope is there for the rest of womankind?

Anyway. We'd like you to watch the following clip and let us know what you think. Is Cougar Town going to be brilliant? Or should Courteney go back to taking Jen on holiday and trying to convince her to do a Friends film? It's over to you...
