Most of the time, when people say a TV show is life changing, they’re exaggerating — hardcore. But in Jennifer Sullivan and Randy Rothfus’s case, the description is spot-on. And that show is Cougar Town.
Yes, the ABC-turned-TBS sitcom featuring Courteney Cox as a newly divorced 40-something navigating life, dating and day-drinking, changed two people’s lives forever. It all happened while Sullivan was watching a rerun, catching an episode where Cox and friends were drinking wine out of a glass attached to the wine bottle. They called it the “Guzzle Buddy.” It was a lightbulb moment — a judgment-free way to drink straight out of the bottle. Or, okay, a less judgy way.
