'Cougar Town'
Two stars
8:30 p.m. Wednesday on WLS-Channel 7

There are some funny moments in this series about a newly divorced mother - Courteney Cox is that good - but it's hard to care about someone who comes off as so desperate and so ... well, stupid. She wasted the first part of her life on a marriage to a hot loser, and it looks like she'll be wasting what's left of her firm years on hot YOUNG losers. Is that a step up? I am mortified for her teen son. At least Cox has excellent backup: Busy Philipps ("ER") is always a hoot when she plays a bad girl, and Christa Miller ("Scrubs") provides sarcastic commentary as a bored married pal.
