A Cougar Town No More!

| Filed under: TV NewsCourteney Cox


Smart move! You'd never know it was actually a decent show unless you watched it!

Courteney Cox's surprisingly good ABC comedy, Cougar Town, isn't getting the accolades it deserves because of its shiteous title, so series co-creator Bill Lawrence just announced that when it comes back next season, it will have a new name!

He says:

“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.' 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.' And then they screen an episode, and people go, ‘Oh, I would watch this show.’"

We agree! It just sort of sounds like a VH1 reality show with that name!!

What do U think they should re-name Cougar Town??

    you can change the name all you want. I think the show stinks and should have been canceled back when Eastwick was wrongfully canceled.

  2. 2

    horrible name, i agree. but i do love the show.
    for a second i thought the show was cancelled which would've really sucked.
    cause it's honestly hilarious. haha

  3. 3

    damn gf looks gooooooood!!!

  4. 4

    it really is a very good show with quirky characters

  5. 5

    "Jules of the Florida Coast" - Jules is a name play on jewels. I thought the show was going to stink, too and it took me a couple episodes, but the actors and actresses have really grown on me. Hey, it's life's little guiltless pleasures that are the most fun!

    This is BS, people won't watch this, but they can watch a show about a bunch of privilaged Hollywood pimps "Nailing" women and causing trouble Entourage anyone!? Cougar town happens to be a great show, and actually I'm not 40 I am 28. My friends and I all mid to late 20's watch it regularly. Peoples issues just goes to show america still a male dominated age-ist country.

    I love that show! Coming up with a title will be challenge but it's true the Cougar has to go. I'd go with "Happy Town", but I think there's a show called that already.

  9. 9

    I really like this show. My sister and I watch it every week. It's pretty funny. I could see where the name would throw some people off, though. I am not good at coming up with names for things, so I won't even try. Mine will be worse than Cougar Town, lol.

  10. 10

    They should name it REALITY!hahaha

  11. 11

    ARe: knitting nut – agree.

  12. 12

    Re: Steph99 – agreed~

  13. 13

    That tshirt she's wearing makes me laugh uproariously. "40 is the new 20" is what old women tell themselves so they don't get suicidal; thier in denail and it's pure desperation. Why can't they just accept and embrace they age they are? Lame

  14. 14

    i really like the name =)
    it was the reason i watched the show when the first episode aired

  16. 16

    I agree…good call. I hate the reference of a "Cougar" for an older attractive women, that can still pull in the young guys.

  17. 17

    i love courtney cox but i've never actually watched cougar town..it is a shit name, obviously. but i hear good things about the show. firstly i don't think they should call it anything with town in the title, that always makes things sound lame and cheesy, it doesn't matter what word is in front of it.

  18. 18

    Robinson Avenue
    The Robinsons

  19. 19

    Courteney and that other Couger on the show look less real then Avatar…to much Botox…can't even watch that show in HD too scary

  20. 20

    Over the Hill and desperate.

  21. 21


  22. 22

    so much Botox…maybe call it..Botown

  23. 23

    Re: TotalTrash – lmao your comment was cute and funny :)

  24. 24

    Totally agree. Its very funny, and the title does it no favors. It humor kinda reminds me of Scrubs.

  25. 25

    I really like this show. Courteney Cox is awesome, but the supporting cast is even better! I hope more people watch this, I miss good sitcoms.

  26. 26

    That show is awesome and I love it.
    I loved Eastwick as well, though.
    A good portion of shows I love don't last as long as I think they should.
    Freaks and Geeks was another one. I hope a name change helps, anyway.

  27. 27

    WTF?! what the hell is going on over at ABC. i like the name. and the shows great, i dont get why so many people hate it.

  28. 28


  29. 29

    Why not just call it Courteney? It's a fun, cute name and it would be easy to associate it with the star!

  30. 30

    Where I live we only call women in their 30's cougars….after 40 they are referred to as T-Rexes……T-Rex Town?

  31. 31

    Yes. And, still cancel it. It's a hideous show.

  32. 32

    How ’bout "Beaver Town"?

  33. 33

    How about "Comedy that isn't Funny", "Desperate for Botox", "PlasticPeople", the list is endless.

    Re: TotalTrash – You're right. I accept 40 is the new 30, but the new 20 ? That's just delusional.

  35. 35

    How about "CANCELLED"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. 36

    "surprisingly good"?
    are you kidding me?

    good fucking lord that show is shit one wheels

  37. Gigi7 says – reply to this


    Naming a show must be hard to do. I remember the movie "Bowfinger", it was such a good movie, but the name "Bowfinger" wasn't very enticing.
    How about "Hot girl's in love" from the Loverboy song ? That could be the theme song "She's so young at heart, she likes the pleasure of his company…and the chorus is "She's turnin on the heat, and it's a hundred above, hot girl's in love" It's a great song.

  38. 38

    you should name it "canceled." I like Courtney Cox, but this show is completely unfunny.

  39. 39

    Re: TomMarty – that wouldnt work..theres no character named Courtney lol.

  40. 40

    the show is great. i'm not even 30 yet, and i love this show. it's so witty. modern family and cougar town rock wednesday's

  41. 41

    yes the name doesn't fit the show but if you change the name thin for those people who don't have internet or read TV guide Magazine thin there never know and the ratings are gonna go in the pooper i really hope they promote the shit out of the show when it comes back with the new name.

  42. 42

    The show stinks - changing the name has nothing to do with it. The story lines are repetitive, the acting is shallow, the jokes are lame. The show simply isn't any good. They need to do more than just changing the name, they need to cancel the show.

  43. 43

    The title is THE BIGGEST TURN OFF. I agree the one time I watched it, it was pretty good, but I could never admit to anyone I watched a show called CougarTown. A new title is pointless. Damage is done.

  44. 44

    "canceled" for sure

  45. 45

    I love love love the show and the name is fine, stupid to change it now.

  46. 46

    I really do love this show…whatever they name it is alright with me. However, I do agree that Cougar Town is misleading and could be changed with good results.

  47. 47

    I watch it on ABC.com.

  48. 48

    Why not change it to "40 is the new 20"
    or Cougarlicious

  49. 49

    I love this show. Never really thought about the name bothering some peeps. Whatever if they rename it or not, I'll still watch it. All the characters are hilarious, one of the few really funny shows on at the moment. In fact, all 3 Wed. night ABC comedies are great.

  50. 50

    40 is def the new 30. I think people should embrace their age. Girlfriend looks nowhere near 20….I never watched the show because Cougars gross me out. you're HOW old and you want to bone my 23 y/o boyfriend? no one wants grandma's p*55y.

  51. 51

    In the same vein as the previous name, but would stir up all kinds of varied interest would be:


  52. 52

    "toss my salad town"

  53. Fia says – reply to this


    Btox Nights, or Juvaderm County. Everytime I watch it I think there is a boom guy holding a syringe for in between close ups.

  54. 54

    I personally think the show sucks but not much on at that time slot so I end up watching it anyways. How about Wine O'clock! Because Lord knows all they do is drink from sun up to sun down!

  55. 55

    they should call it "plastic surgery makes you sexy again"

  56. 56

    how about "beaverback mountain"?

  57. 57


  58. 58

    the show is hysterical. It has a brilliant ensemble cast & top notch clever writers. So glad that it's coming back with all it's witty adult fun.

  59. 59

    This is a great show, whatever they need to do to get people to watch it they should - give it a chance people it's great!

  60. 60

    i like Realality, as well. It is a good watch.

  61. 61

    Jules. This is a fine show, well written and nicely acted. Do you notice that the best of tv now is better than most new films?

  62. 62

    They should name the show "The Family Jules"

  63. 63

    show is fucking funny as hell! LOVE IT! watch it every wednesday!! I dont care about the name. Its just a name. THis is what I dont understand. Alot of people like a show and show dont, well if you dont like it, then TURN THE FUCKING CHANNEL! why doesnt everything have to canceled just because YOU dont like it? theres over tv channels!

  64. 64

    THE FAMILY JULES… I like it… it's perfect… my idea was RED WINE

  65. 65

    The show is funny as hell. Who gives a fuck what they call it.

  66. 66

    Stupidest fucking show, with a choked out name. Come on! And she AGREED to do this??? WTF Men calling women Cougars to begin with is such an insult. How retarded is this bitch or any bitch getting paid in Hollywood as an actress to feed into this????

  67. 67

    I adore this show!!! I crack up the entire 30 minutes. I agree that "Cougar Town" is a bit realityshow-ish. You can't call it "The Family Jules" though cause Gene Simmons already has his show called "The Family Jewels". Maybe call it "Gulf Haven" since that's the real name of the fictional town the show is set in???

    Cougar Town is a consistently funny show with a very talented cast. Courtney Cox is amazing!

  72. 72

    the show is AMAZING, it gets better every week!!
    as for the name, I read somewhere that an option might be "Family Jules"..I like this idea!
    Courteney Cox is an amazing actress and she deserves any acknowledgment.
