LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - NBC's Cougar Town may be getting a name change.
Cast and crew confirmed via Twitter over the holiday weekend, the show is once again considering renaming the show, starring Courteney Cox, to lure viewers who have been put off by the title.
â€œOk. Guys. New title suggestions for CougarTown? I think [creator, Bill Lawrence] is really seriously gonna do it this time,â€ Busy Phillips, who plays Laurie, Tweeted on Friday.
â€œHonestly, I think if you change it, it should be totally different. Not even reminiscent of Cougar Town,â€ she continued. â€œGo for it! Seriously.â€
Lawrence, in Tweets he has since deleted from the weekend, suggested the show is in need of more viewers to make it to the next season, and fears the current show title does not appeal to potential viewers.
â€œThe title suggests [a] show they would hate,â€ he Tweeted.
Numerous fans offered title ideas over the weekend. One title getting positive reaction from fans was "Friends with Beverages," which is on homage of Cox's former NBC comedy and the large amounts of wine the gang drinks during each episode of Cougar Town.
