Cougar Town No More?
It may be one of ABCs newest hits but come fall, you may not be able to find "Cougar Town" on the schedule. Co-Creator Bill Lawrence says that the show has changed and out grown the title. “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,’ ” The hit maker, he also created 'Scrubs', says that there is research to back him up,“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.'"
