The premiere pulled 2.2 million viewers, with 1.3 million of them in the key adults 18-49 demographic. That's just shy of recent TBS comedy debut Men at Work, which opened to 2.65 million viewers and 1.6 million in the demo when it launched this summer.
Cougar Town's peak ratings last season on ABC were around 4.4 million viewers with a 1.6 rating among adults.
