The cul de sac crew will be uncorking more wine than usual tonight: Cougar Town has been renewed for fifth season. The Bill Lawrence sitcom, which was canceled by ABC last spring and subsequently saved by TBS, is currently wrapping up its first season on the cable channel, with the Season 4 finale set for April 9. The network has ordered 13 episodes for Season 5, which will likely air in early 2014. 

According to TBS, Cougar Town's fourth season has averaged 2.8 million total viewers and 1.7 million viewers in the 18-49 demo once DVR numbers are factored in, enough to make it the network's number-one primetime original series ever.

Anyone up for a friendly game of Penny Can to celebrate?

    PS - thanks Target for all your support, especially letting them film an episode in your store along with several promos, that's not at all creepy and over-the-top in the most subtle way possible.

    who cares! ha. Reminds me of Subway and Chuck on NBC

    i can definitely see tbs or another cable network picking up happy endings and apt 23 with this news, plus many other great shows that get the ax. i mean, all they do is play repeats of family guy and big bang theory

    That would be awesome if TBS picked up Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B--
