We’ve been seeing posters for Courteney Cox‘s new show, “Cougar Town,” all over New York, and on one particularly long subway ride, we stared at it so long that we started pondering her name. Wasn’t she Courteney Cox Arquette a few years ago? And isn’t she supposedly still happily married?

Whatevs, all I know is that both of these projects are going to be tragic. [Variety]
