Busy Philipps won't be shedding any tears if ABC cancels Cougar Town.

She doesn't want the show to end, but is hopeful the fan-favorite series will find a home on TBS if Courteney Cox and the gang do get the boot.

And it's safe to say that Philipps is no fan of how ABC has treated Cougar Town...

"It has not been fun to feel like the ugly stepsister of the network," Philipps told us today at Paul Frank's Mommy & Me celebration at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

"They moved us around, they took us off the air for months," she continued. "I do feel a little disappointed in how they've treated the show. If TBS is willing to launch the show in a real great way and we would actually have like billboards and commercials, that would be really cool."

Producers have been talking to TBS about a two-season pickup if ABC gives them the boot, according to Deadline.

Philipps says she's "really excited about the possibility" of switching networks. "I feel like if it really happens it's kind of going to be like best case scenario for all of us," she said.

Hopefully the rest of the cast is as gung-ho about the move as Philipps is. "The terms of the matter are we don't have a choice," she laughed. "Gung-ho or not, get on the train!"

A rep for ABC declined to comment for this story.
