Turnabout is fair play — especially among Friends.
Matthew Perry, who lured Courteney Cox to his short-lived NBC comedy Go On last season, is repaying the favor by guest-starring on Cougar Town.
No word on who Perry is playing, but his episode is expected to air towards the end of the TBS comedy’s fifth season (bowing Jan. 7).
Perry is the third Friends vet to visit Cox on C-Town, following stints by Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer Aniston.
This Tuesday night, TBS’ Cougar Townputs a cork on Season 4 with a double-helping of episodes kicking off at 10/9c and setting the stage for romance, finally, for Jules’ son Travis and her wild child sidekick Laurie.
As last week’s Breakfast Club-by episode closed, the longtime platonic pals realize “they’re on the same page. They now know that they like each other,” Dan Byrd tells TVLine. “But how do they transition their relationship from what it’s been their entire lives into something different? As well all know, that is no easy task a lot of times.”
The first step, of course is The First Date, but even that proves problematic for the potential lovebirds. “I don’t want to give too many specifics and ‘mess up the journey’ for people, but one of the things they do is sit and try to watch a movie together, with the idea that maybe things will get romantic,” Byrd previews, “but they end up just sitting and watching the movie!”
The other threshold to cross is The First Kiss, which gives Travis, in particular, some anxiety. As Byrd explains, “Laurie is kind of at the wheel, in that she is the older, more experienced one, so Travis tries to man up and take charge of the situation. But he’s definitely scrambling.”

And Andy is upset to discover that no one recognizes him as Latino.
#4.14 – “Don’t Fade On Me” – Chick (guest star Ken Jenkins) comes to housesit while the gang goes on vacation. But when Jules discovers that her father hasn’t been to the doctor in years, she insists on taking him. Laurie and Travis go on their first date as boyfriend and girlfriend. And Bobby is crushed to discover that Dog Travis is just using him for food.
