Cougar Town Name Change: It's On!

at . Comments

The creators of Cougar Town have finally given in.

Following a season's worth of jokes about their sitcom's title, Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel spent the morning semi-seriously Tweeting about finally changing the name of the show for the upcoming third season.

According to Lawrence, the series was originally pitched as a "campy show about a woman re-entering the world" after a divorce; but now it has evolved more into a comedy about "adult relationships and drinking."

never mind changing the name just put it back on TV already!


Pounding Grape all the way!!


How about "The Culdesac Crew"?!


I think that they should just stick with the name Cougar town and focus more on the episodes rather than the title.


@danny lol if it has to change to anything it has to be the cul-de-sac crew !!!


So originally I was going to comment not to change the name but then I saw Cul-de-Sac j/k I think they should stick with cougar Town


It will get a fourth season, if only to get closer to 85-100 for syndication and to mine for DVD sales. Lawrence/Cox are known commodities who ABC won't turn on quickly. With a title change, they could get the necessary buzz to bump the ratings and guarantee that fourth season early. This will be very interesting to see what happens when they lead an hour as well.


@ Jen Cougar Town's ratings suck nowadays (only a 2.0 for the two last episodes), and if it continues getting those ratings next season, it will get canceled. So this may be their only chance to get more viewers, avoid the cancellation, and, perhaps, get more promotion from ABC when the show returns in November.


Don't change the name!! Who cares what the show was originally supposed to be about?!? The name of the show is Cougar Town!! If it's not broke, don't fix it!!


ok Bill Lawrence must be drunk! Just leave it the way it is!!!!


Cougar Town Quotes

Laurie: Jules told me never to ask, but why do you call me Jellybean?
Ellie: Well JB, when Jules first hired you I thought you were so simple minded she could convince you that Jellybeans were more valuable than gold and subsequently pay you in Jellybeans. This concept was eventually shorted into your nickname, Jellybean.

Bonnie: I'm not perfect Jules.
Jules: Really.
