Is America Over Their Sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston? Her Over-Hyped ‘Cougar Town’ Appearance Failed To Get Ratings!

Jen has bombed at the box office recently with The Switch, and failed to bring in numbers for the season premiere of Cougar Town. What’s going on?

Jennifer Aniston may have to take drastic measures to bring herself back to popularity – like casting herself in the next Twilight film or rubbing The Situation’s abs on The Jersey Shore, because just being Jennifer Aniston simply isn’t cutting it anymore! After bombing in The Switch, the 41-year-old actress also failed to impress on the small screen; her performance on ABC’s Cougar Town was NOT ratings gold, as expected!

As Glenn, the crazytown therapist of real life BFF Courteney Cox‘s character, Jules, Jen helped to bring in 8.3 million viewers for the show’s season premiere – 4.3 million less than the prior ABC program, Modern Family. The numbers are also a lot less than LAST season’s premiere, which debuted with 11.4 million viewers.

Although Cougar Town isn’t beloved by viewers (which baffles us, it’s an awesome program) Jen’s appearance was supposed to bounce the flailing program back to popularity – but it didn’t! Is America over our best Friend?

I’ve watched Cougar Town since it came on and I can tell you for a fact, the lower ratings were because the show is weak – nothing else. It was a cute concept at first but the characters are ridiculously annoying and the situations highly unbelievable. They are so goofy and over the top. Jules’ frigid, terminally bitchy friend is one of the least likable characters on TV. I was going to give up on it completely UNTIL I heard that Aniston was gong to be on. Since then I only catch it if nothing else is on. Let’s face it, this Cougar’s turned into a turkey.

you guys are really mean, a lot of people watched the show. and fyi that show is retarted anyways, it’s not funny.
nobody ever says anything when anyone ELSE in Hollywood has flops. JUST jennifer aniston. I really don’t get it. She gets bitched at when she does action comedy, romantic comedy, tv shows. she really just cant win with you sad people. however, just know that she DOES have fans and we will keep watching her stuff. she aint goin nowhere!! ;) hahahahahahahhahahaha.

Aniston was the least talented Friends cast member, she also isn’t as pretty as Cox or Kudrow, despite her PR flack’s decades long hype-fest. Get it thru your head. She defines banality and mediocrity. She needs to GO AWAY.

Cougar Town is Courtney Cox’s show. The Switch was Jason Bateman’s movie. Why does the media insist on saying that everything is Jen’s bomb?

Uhmm the first season was a huge success no matter what the article above says, check out twitter/tumblr, anything. Search for Cougar Town and see how popular of a topic it is! And Aniston wasn’t in that, Courteney was the whole season, even produced it. So yes i might say its Jens fault this episode bombed, many (me included) don’t like her popping up in a show of Courteney, since she is talentless in comparison to Courteney and thinks she’s all that. We cant stand her, its as simple as that!

Jen cameo was Cougar town third highest rating out of the 25 episodes so she did bring in the rating. The first two episodes of the first season was the other two. Last year last episode was 6.1 million. Quote the facts.

People have realized that Aniston only plays Rachel. Her publicity team keeps selling her as some amazing A-list actress or comedienne. She’s ALWAYS trying to get attention by selling bottled water posing nude, by selling perfume posing nude, by doing a million interviews, nude photoshoots, etc. People feel like she’s a famewhore and not that talented and react accordingly. It’s time for more talented actresses to get more attention, and Aniston to just disappear already!

She’s ALL HYPE. People are starting to realize that she always plays the same role, her movies are poor quality, and they bomb at the box office. She’s used the tabloids and interest in her private life to make up for the fact that she’s not that talented, gives horrible interviews and lacks substance. At 41, you can no longer play the cute dimwit anymore. She’s SO over-exposed, too. Her fans are seriously delusional. They want to trash people who are ALL pointing out the obvious. It’s not jealousy, it’s the TRUTH. It would be the same with any other actor who is not talented, over-exposed and who uses the tabloids to fuel their career. Eventually, people get tired of the HYPE.

Please leave this women alone. Not everyone hates Jennifer Aniston, but you blogs are doing your best to make everyone think so. Jennifer is not this “evil” person that needs to be destroyed just to make it look like Brad Pitt was justified to leave her for Angie.

But Brad Pitt WAS justified to leave this woman for Angelina. Just look at them, 6 yrs later, who got 6 kids and who got none? She never wanted Brad’s babies. She keeps saying she wants to be a mother, just to keep her fans’ delusions going.

the problem with this scenario is that the show is a crap show to begin with – jen’s physical comic timing is not so good and she is literally herself in every role – never changes up her look or her acting – it seemed like Friends again only Cox is more hyper than ever.

I would like to understand how jealously plays a part in things when the cold hard facts are, her films as of late have flopped (The Switch), the ratings for her appearance on Cougar Town were a flop! If her next movie makes money, then we have a comeback, easy as that. Its all in the numbers.

Fix the poll, it ridiculous! And NO there is NOTHING wrong with Jen’s career. Cougar Town debuted stronger than most of last seasons episodes. The premier of the show was a novelty but the show lost steam fast. Mark my words it will make even less from now on. It did 8+ because of JEN otherwise it would’ve probably done a lot less.

About Jen’s movies, why isn’t the media focusing on Jason Bateman who hasn’t been able to lead a box office hit EVER. What about Drew Barrymore whose latest film was a HUGE bomb or Matt Damon, etc? Jen has had both hits and flops and even her “flops” make at least twice the budget worldwide and do well on DVD. Instead of writting crap how about doing some research. It doesn’t take to long to go to Box office mojo or The numbers and do a little research.

You want to know if people are tired of Jen A, well with these articles you are answering yourself that question. You keep writting about her because you get hits, the media keeps creating stories about her because she sells. Nobody makes a big deal of Matt Damon’s flops (real flops that don’t even make the budget) because it won’t help sell magazines.

“Fix the poll”? Just because you don’t like the results, doesn’t mean the poll is ridiculous. Aniston is past her time. She’s overexposed to the point where people are sick and tired of her. The best thing she can do now is disappear. Permanently.

Jennifer popularity is bad because if she isn’t hunching on her co-stars,sleeping with everyone in Hollywood, she had to stoop more lower when she showed up on Chelsey Handler show to have a joke made of Angelina and last she went on the Cougar show to do more cracks about Adoption. When does it end? the poor me pity party has moved on, all Jennifer did was played herself a ‘CRAZY RACHEL from Friends’ not funny anymore. Jennifer has typed cast herself by looking the same and acting the same, the young girl sweetheart is gone, and it want be any different with this wanderlust, she’ll just be that hunching fool again,so, what’s new, nothing.

can you please fix this poll? it doesn’t even make sense. And no, there is NOTHING wrong with Jenn’s carrer. How much money do YOU make per year, idiot? Stop making up stupid lies about her. She is one of the greatest people in Hollywood.
Jealousy isn’t healthy, you know…

me : isn’t “greatest in hollywood” a hyperbole ? She is a barely mediocre actress who happened to have some good luck in her career decision i.e. (1) a father in the TV business , (2) a godfather , Telly Savales, in a movie business , (3) an agressive PR man , (4) she married and divorced one of the most highly thought of actors , (5) she has good hair that is regularly maintained by her ever present hair dresser , and (6) she is vain enough to constantly exercise and diet ergo her regular nude pictures selling her movies , smartwater , and lately her perfume . As an actress anyone else without these advantages would have dropped out of show business years ago .
