Busy Philipps - Busy Philipps Fuming Over Cougar Town Treatment

Actress Busy Philipps has taken aim at Abc executives for their handling of Cougar Town, insisting the show is the "ugly stepsister of the network".
The 2009 debut of Courteney Cox's comedy landed more than 11 million viewers, but over the three seasons ratings have dropped and the current series has so far failed to top five million.
The programme's time slot was also changed, and recent reports suggested producers have been talking to bosses at Tbs about a two-season pickup if Abc drops the show - and Phillips admits she's hoping the gossip is true.
She tells E! Online, "It has not been fun to feel like the ugly stepsister of the network. They moved us around, they took us off the air for months.
"I do feel a little disappointed in how they've treated the show. If Tbs is willing to launch the show in a real great way and we would actually have like billboards and commercials, that would be really cool.
"I feel like if it really happens it's kind of going to be like best case scenario for all of us."
