'Cougar Town': The Death of Big Carl

ABC treated fans of " Cougar Town " (Tue., 8 p.m. ET on ABC) to back-to-back installments of the under-rated show. With the good news already in that the series will continue with a 15-episode commitment on TBS, fans were able to relax and enjoy the fun. Unfortunately, the hour also came with a price. Ellie wanted so desperately to believe that Stan wasn't a hellion, that she convinced Jules to let him be in her wedding. But Stan is already tagging the town, among other crazy activities. And in a moment completely out of nowhere, he completely and totally broke Jules' heart. He threw Big Carl into the air, destroying the second giant wine glass in the series' history. Julies threw a memorial service for the shards, and by the end of the hour she'd found yet another replacement in Big Lou, assuring that the wine will never stop pouring. "Cougar Town" takes a week off before returning for its one hour network finale at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The show shifts to TBS for its fourth season, expected to premiere in early 2013. TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser. http://feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/0CnVndV7WAw/cougar-town-stan-breaks-big-carl-video_n_1520129.html
