As TBS announced today a sixth and final season for Cougar Town, several other comedies are attempting, like Cougar Town, to find a new home after being cancelled or passed over at the broadcast networks. I hear Warner Bros TV’s Suburgatory — which is three seasons into its run the way Cougar Town was when it was facing cancellation at ABC and moved to TBS — is exploring other options for the quirky comedy, cancelled on by Thursday by ABC, with sibling TBS among the possibilities. Similarly, I hear 20th Century Fox TV is determined to work hard on finding a new home for Friends With Better Lives, which was cancelled by CBS today after a short midseason run. 20th TV also is said to be shopping the Kevin Hart comedy pilot starring Romany Malco, which came very close to a series order at ABC. The network instead went with the ABC Studios’ produced Black-ish starring Anthony Anderson on Thursday, with the project’s showrunner Larry Wilmore announcing a day later that he would depart to host a show on Comedy Central.
