The fate of the comedy has been up in the air for a while after it was initially left off the mid-season schedule and Season 3's episode order was cut from 22 to 15.
"It's not been fun to feel like the ugly stepsister of the network," Phillipps, who plays Laurie Keller, told E! Online. "They moved us around, they took us off the air for months ... 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."
Philipps has been vocal about her frustrations. Initially, when ABC decreased "Cougar Town's" episode order, she told TVLine, "The writers have amazing stuff planned out for this season, and now they’re going to have to condense ... I feel bad for them. I feel bad for everyone. It’s a bummer. It sucks.”
