Same old friends, new show

From Wire Reports

Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow, who starred as Monica Geller and Phoebe Buffay for 10 seasons on NBC’s “Friends,” are reuniting for tonight’s episode of “Cougar Town” (9:30 p.m., ABC).

Cox earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role as zany divorcee Jules Cobb. Kudrow guest stars as a dermatologist who digs her claws into Cox’s ex-husband

She said she would have taken just about any role offered on “Cougar Town,” as long as it didn’t require nudity – which apparently hasn’t been an issue for the 45-year-old Cox.

“You look great,” Kudrow told her.

“No, Lisa, I’m lit well,” Cox replied.
