Courteney Cox to Save The Day For Matthew Perry?

Monday, February 18, 2013

COURTENEY Cox is set to lend a helping hand to her former Friends costar Matthew Perry.

Cox has reportedly agreed to appear on Perry’s sinking sit­com Go On in a special April episode.

“Courteney will play a character who is set up on a date with the grieving widower played by Matthew,” a source said.

“She’s scheduled for only one epi­sode so far, but if viewers tune in, Courteney could be brought back for more. She’s throwing Matt a Hail Mary pass to save his show, and he knows it.

“It was considered a great success, but it had a strong lead-in from The Voice. Once The Voice finished its season, Go On slid badly in the ratings and has been going downhill ever since.

“Matt is desperately hoping that Courteney’s appearance will pull his show out of its death spi­ral and breathe new life into it.”

    This is actually a really smart move because I thing Go On has finally found that balance between drama and comedy that it needs in order to work, and a big event like this could capture some viewers. I have missed a lot of this first season of Go On because I work late nights at DISH on Tuesdays, but I am definitely going to watch this one. I may even schedule my lunch break when it airs so I can watch it on my iPad with DISH Anywhere.
