TBS has saved Cougar Town. The cable network has picked up the fourth season of the struggling ABC sitcom, which will move to its new home with new episodes in early 2013.

"Cougar Town is a smart, whimsical sitcom that draws its humor from likable, relatable characters" said TBS president Michael Wright. "We are thrilled to have Cougar Town moving to the TBS neighborhood as the network continues to expand its slate of original comedy series."

The Courtney Cox comedy premiered in 2009 and spent its first three seasons on ABC, airing 61 episodes. There is no word at this time on the number of episodes ordered for Season 4 on TBS.

UPDATE: Season 4 of Cougar Town premieres Tuesday, January 8, 2013.
