    I'm really divided on the name change for Cougar Town. On the one hand, it is an awful name that never should have been greenlit in the first place and doesn't fit the show. But no the other hand, I fear that a name change would confuse people and lose some of the already small audience. If only the show had started with the midseason episodes instead of those awkward few episodes where Courtney was chasing young guys.
