"'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," Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies, said of the renewal. "This season, the brilliant cast and immensely creative production team on 'Cougar Town' have crafted their best episodes yet, and we couldn't be happier inviting them back for more."

In its fourth season, which launched Jan. 8, "Cougar Town" has averaged 2.8 million total viewers, with 1.7 million of them in the 18-49 demographic most important to advertisers in Live + 7 delivery, which takes into account DVR viewings that take place in the 7 days after a telecast. The series has been TBS's best rated original primetime program in the demo.
