Courteney Cox wants “Cougar Town” call in


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We live in an interactive society, with people conversing instantaneously on Facebook, Twitter and other instant-messaging tools. And I understand the need for a medium like television or radio to come up with new ways to connect to its audience. But this one sounds so bizarre – and almost impossible – that I kind of can’t wait to see how they pull it off.

Apparently during an upcoming episode of “Cougar Town,” a character on the show is going to give out a telephone number, and if audience members pick up their phone and dial, they might get a chance to talk to Courteney Cox or one of the show’s other cast members.

People reports that this in-the-moment telephone conversation will take place during the Monday, April 18, episode of the show, which will air at 9:30 p.m. ET.

“The surprise will be who picks up the phone. It may be Cox, or any of the show’s other stars like Busy Phillips, Josh Hopkins, Ian Gomez or Christa Miller,” People notes.

But how? Is the show live? Will the stars stop to talk to whomever calls in? This boggles the mind. It has to be a bit. But “Cougar Town” has proven clever enough to pull off an interactive trick like this. And if shows like “30 Rock” can do live episodes for both coasts, why can’t “Town” encourage people to call in.

I just hope we don’t get a prime-time Bababooey joke.
