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?
