ABC released its 2011-2012 television schedule today, and notably absent was its comedy Cougar Town, which was already renewed for a third season back in January.

Word now is that the show's return has been pushed to mid-season, which likely means a January or February 2012 premiere. ABC plans to air the Courtney Cox sitcom Tuesdays at 9:00pm in between seasons of Dancing with the Stars. Following it in the 9:30pm time slot will be new series Apartment 23.

Cougar Town's second season has two episodes left and will wrap up later this month. A new episode is scheduled for tomorrow, and its season finale will air May 25.
