    Default Is Cougar Town Getting a New Title?

    this is stupid...

    Is Cougar Town Getting a New Title?
    May 12, 2010

    Fans of Cougar Town may have to re-set their DVRs soon.

    The show’s co-creator Bill Lawrence is hoping to change the ABC comedy’s title for the next season since it has evolved into an ensemble show rather than one that only focuses on Courteney Cox‘s character, Jules Cobb.

    “You would be hard-pressed to watch the last three episodes of the show and asked anyone for titles I doubt anyone would say ‘Cougar Town,’ ” Lawrence tells HitFix.com.

    But there’s another reason why he’s hoping for the name makeover: Attracting people who normally wouldn’t watch a show with the existing title. “Partly as a result of common sense and partly from [the studio's] research, they find too many instances of testing of people saying they would never watch a show called Cougar Town — ‘I don’t want to see some show about a 40-year-old woman nailing younger guys,’ ” says Lawrence. “And then they screen an episode, and people go, ‘Oh, I would watch this show.’ “

    So what title does he have in mind? Lawrence says he constantly jokes the show should be called Friends and Neighbors with the ‘Friends‘ written in the same font as Cox’s old show. But he doesn’t “want to put [ideas] out there yet.” –Eunice Oh

    Even if they change the title, it won't hide the stupid. It's a horrible show.

    Cougar Town was a ridiculous name in the first place. Whatever.

    I thought the first 2 episodes were very funny, but that's when Courtney Cox was dating young 20 year old boys. Now it's just a stupid sitcom that has nothing to do wtih being a "Couger". Cancel the f*cking thing already.
