'Cougar Town' star reveals she auditioned for 'Bridesmaids.' Read More »

Remember when James Van Der Beek told Celebuzz how sick of the Dawson's Creek theme song he was? Well, we talked to former Creek star Busy Phillips at the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style party this week, who felt the same way.

"I don't blame him," said Busy. "I had only two years on the show of having to hear it, so he had four more years than I did, but I have a very similar reaction. Poor Paula Cole. She didn't ask for that!"

Busy, who remains tight with former costar Michelle Williams, is currently on ABC's Cougar Town, but according to Phillips, not for much longer.

"It's not looking good, it's just not looking good," Busy said about Cougar Town getting picked up for season 3. "I'm bummed too, but I looked at the numbers this morning and I just can't figure out the math in my head how this show is going to get picked up. But look, we would all be pleasantly surprised at those upfront's if they announced they were going to bring the show back for the next two years."

    Look, it is very very rare to find a cast with this chemistry who are not afraid to be silly and poignant in the same show. With the clever writing, strong cast and fun storylines, the most quotable show since Seinfeld needs to find its audience and get some attention. Remember how long it took Cheers to catch on? Give this some time and publicity and this show will be ON FIRE! It is ridiculous that the numbers are not higher. This show is clever and fun and soooo sweet. Please don't pander to the ADD society we live in and let it build up over some time. I am telling you, the cast of this show is a cast you would want to have as neighbors in your own cul de sacs.
