When Animals Attack!–Cougars on TV edition

Stifler's mom, RAWRR!

To heck with HDTV, ginormous flat screens and Alec Baldwin, it’s becoming quite clear that it will be COUGARS that pump life back into the sagging TV economy. I am of course referring to a type of lady who, according to the wikipedia definition, is:

An older woman, usually 35+, who sexually pursues men at least 10 years their junior. The term has been used in (American) TV series, advertising and film.

Alrighty, now that we got that out of the way, let’s delve into just how much Cougar exposure we are getting/about to get via TV…MEOW!

Cougar Town–this is one of those pilots from yesterday’s post, a comedy about a newly single 40-year-old and her 17-year-old son, starring Courtney Cox and airing on ABC, date TBD.

The Cougar–TV Land just announced that the host of this new reality show is Vivica A. Fox (ahem) and it’s a competition dating series, where women look for love among eligible younger men. Premieres in April.

Camp Cougar (or Cougar Camp, as some kids on the ‘net call it)–no word yet on when this Vh1 reality series is supposed to air, but in August they announced filming and the host as none other than D-lister Lisa Gastineau. The show boasts “cougar training” and pitting catty (yeah, pun intended) women against each other in the hopes of landing fresh young meat.

25 Hottest Hollywood Cougar Tales–apparently the E! Network premiered this countdown/clip show gem back in 2007, but it’s still in their current rotation.

Oh look, theres a cougar trying to devour a young one right now!

Oh look, there's a Cougar trying to devour a Young One right now! I told you, they are EVERYWHERE.
