Shirley Jones joins Cougar Town

Come on, get happy! Partridge Family matriarch Shirley Jones will reportedly be popping up in an episode of Cougar Town when the series moves to TBS for its fourth season. According to TVLine, the 78-year-old actress will “play one half of a couple that agrees to purchase the house next to Jules (who has the listing) and Grayson under one condition: That they be welcomed into the Cul-de-Sac Crew.” There has been no word from the network whether actor Dave Madden, who played Reuben Kincaid on The Partridge Family, will play Jones’ husband, but we’re hopeful. Cougar Town returns on Jan. 8.
