Bill Lawrence to Step Down as Cougar Town Showrunner

at . Comments

What in the name of hilarious showrunners is going in the world of our favorite sitcoms?

In the wake of rumors that Dan Harmon may cease being in charge of the day-to-day operations of Community on season four, Vulture confirms that Cougar Town creators Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel will no longer be as prominently involved when the show moves to TBS this fall.

C Town, Bill Lawrence

Lawrence does not deny this report, but he is telling fans to relax. He Tweeted this afternoon, not long after the TBS Upfront in New York City:

“A.) chill. B.) neither Kev nor I currently have shows, so we will both work on CT, C.) if we do get shizz going, we need great guy in place."

shaun did you leave any of the Darlington stripe or Badge as some cleald it on the right rear of the car? Its where you let the right rear drift up and gently kiss the lady in black at Darlington or as some say rub the wall through the turn for a better exit. I saw it in one of the photos and was wondering. Body looks great though, you getting there. See you in turn four JOHNNY


Gday mate, the Q has been been great, it does a really great job of rsaots, and cooks food very quickly with the lid down. It's only shortcomings I've found is it can't produce the massive searing heat required for a blue steak like charcoal, and the whole grill is the same temp, ie you can't have one side cooler than the other. You can work around that though, it's never caused me any troubles.


I love Cougar Town AND Mob Wives. So clearly I have a sense of humor but still enjoy midesnls drivel. Hope that's OK.When it first started and really had the cougar premise, I thought it sucked. But then they dropped the young guy and made it more about the Cul-de-sac Crew and I came back and fell in love. I agree that Penny Can has run the course (perhaps that's why they sold it so it wouldn't just disappear, but we wouldn't have to hear it although I do chuckle when I hear Penny Can! ) and Jules should lay off the I love my son so much I can't bear to be away from him for more than 45 seconds at a time . Other than that LOVE IT!I don't remember what time it will be on next season (and I'm too lazy to look right now), but hopefully folks will come even if the name doesn't change but they make a big enough stink about it people will be curious and the ratings go up so it will stay around at least another season or two. I think it is funny enough to last as long as Scrubs did before Scrubs pole vaulted over the shark.


Good! Now maybe the new EP will cast some friends.


Cougar Town Quotes

Laurie: Jules told me never to ask, but why do you call me Jellybean?
Ellie: Well JB, when Jules first hired you I thought you were so simple minded she could convince you that Jellybeans were more valuable than gold and subsequently pay you in Jellybeans. This concept was eventually shorted into your nickname, Jellybean.

Bonnie: I'm not perfect Jules.
Jules: Really.
