CourteneyCoxInside the production lines of TV: according to sources inside the show and a report from Access Hollywood, a “private family matter” according to Courteney Cox has stopped production on the set of  “Cougar Town,” a new show that has been a minor hit for ABC, drawing 7.9M viewers for its show last week.

“We can confirm production on ‘Cougar Town‘ has been temporarily shut down in order for Courteney to deal with a private family matter,” stated a rep on the record to AH.

Our take: We hope she can square this issue away and return to complete the show quite soon, but at the same time, you have a contract, studios have a lot of money and deadlines at stake, and people at regular jobs normally can’t just leave because of ‘family issues’. They have to stay and complete their work, then go home and deal with the issues in their lives. Just another perspective on things.
