Read This: Lose the 'Cougar' Edition

Good afternoon, everyone. Planning on watching "Cougar Town," Courtney Cox's new TV show? Hank Stuever says you should, because it's "surprisingly funny" and "may be the most deliciously profane network show ever made."

Meanwhile, Monica Hesse and Ellen McCarthy put out a plea to the older ladies who like younger men: Stop calling yourselves cougars. As they explain:

The way to really embrace the concept of an older woman dating a younger man is not to give it a name that sounds like it was conjured up during a marketing meeting for cheap 1970s cologne. It's to not name it at all.
(Also, doesn't the term -- along with "sex kitten" and a certain crude euphemism for lady parts -- make you wonder if these men are even interested in women? Maybe deep down, they want cats.)

Elsewhere in Style: Bill Sheehan reviews James Ellroy's latest, "Blood's a Rover." Michael Shear recaps President Barack Obama's appearance on "Late Show with David Letterman." And Chris Richards takes the new Pearl Jam album for a spin.
