this has become a wonderful show, I'm enjoying it more than Modern Family this season. While Modern Family is using familiar sitcom tropes, Cougar Town is trying to tell a story, not necessarily an overarching story, but something real and emotional nonetheless.​

after last nights episode I can safely say that Cougar Town is having a better sophomore season than Modern Family

Scrubs was great so I am not surprised people really enjoy this. Although I don't think its on the same level as scrubs. Also i am not a huge modern family fan but i like it, what annoys me is that some jokes seem kinda forced also those "family moments" look really fake to me.

Finished watching season 1. Once they dumped the whole 'cougar' thing, the show's become much better. Great ensemble cast btw. Season 2... here we come!

Cougar Town Name 'Not Around Much Longer' - What Would You Title the Show?

Cougar Town co-creator Bill Lawrence has news for fans of the ABC comedy: "Those that loved the title…. [It's] not around for much longer."

Lawrence floated that likelihood on Twitter Thursday night, reigniting a dialogue that has dogged the show since Episode 1.

Although at the start Courteney Cox's divorcée found herself romping with younger guys, that conceit was dropped early into the show's freshman run, allowing the well-cast comedy to change course, find new footing and emerge as a very strong ensemble effort.

UPDATE: More pragmatically, Lawrence says that ABC research shows there are a "high number of men that will NEVER sample show called [Cougar Town], even those that liked it once they screened an episode." Also problematic is the "incredibly high rate of fans who will not/or can't get friends to watch due to the title."

I broke the news about Lawrence pondering a Cougar Town name-change - to better court potential viewers who were likely turned off by the provocative, sexual predator concept - back in January 2010, for TV Guide Magazine, if that gives you an idea of how long this issue has been banging around. But with Season 3 being held for a midseason berth (it will air Tuesdays at 9/8c, once Dancing With the Stars exits the primetime dance floor), there apparently is still time to cage the Cougar in deference to something better.

These days, Lawrence seems to be entertaining Sunshine State (previously off-the-table, because Mr. Sunshine aired on ABC), Friends With Beverages and The Drinking Age as possible titles.

Now my friends won't mock me for watching "Cougar Town!" :oblivious:
Seriously though, I'm glad that they're renaming it. The title had nothing whatsoever to do with the show (except for Barb, a minor character.)
