'Cougar Town': Shirley Jones joins the cul-de-sac crew for Season 4

shirley-jones-cougar-town-gi.jpgThe cul-de-sac crew may be getting a new member in Season 4 of "Cougar Town" -- whether they like it or not.

Shirley Jones ("The Partridge Family") will guest-star on the series, which begins its first season on TBS (and fourth overall) on Jan. 8. She'll play a woman who buys Grayson's ( Josh Hopkins) house across the street from Jules ( Courteney Cox) -- provided that Jules spends some time with her.

So on the one hand, Jules and Grayson will no longer be carrying two mortgages. On the other, an elderly lady giving Jules a whole bunch of advice, even if Jules doesn't want to hear it.

Jones joins Alexandra Wentworth and Gillian Vigman on the guest-star list for "Cougar Town" this season.
