Say bye-bye to Cougar Town! No, the show isn't getting canceled, but it may be getting a new name.
According to People magazine, the show’s co-creator Bill Lawrence is hoping to change the ABC comedy’s title for the next season because the show isn't just about Courteney Cox anymore--it's more of an ensemble cast.
“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 said according to People magazine.
He said he's also hoping a name change will attract a wider audience--people who wouldn't normally tune into a show about Cougars. “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 are they considering renaming the show to? Friends and Neighbors with the ‘Friends‘ written in the same font as the original Friends show. Um...how about you guys go back to the drawing board?! What would you rename the show?
