NEW YORK (AP) — "Cougar Town" is about to get a new address.

The ABC sitcom, a cult favorite but never a ratings blockbuster on broadcast television, will be moving to cable's TBS, the network said Thursday.

TBS has ordered a fourth season of the sitcom, which was facing cancellation by ABC. New episodes are scheduled to begin airing early next year. In addition, TBS has acquired rights to repeat the show's first three seasons of 61 episodes originally seen on ABC.

"Cougar Town" stars Courteney Cox as a recently divorced mom struggling with the challenges and pitfalls of her new single life. The series also stars Brian Van Holt, Christa Miller, Ian Gomez, Josh Hopkins and Busy Philipps.
