Name Change for ‘Cougar Town’?: Wednesdays on ABC may look a little different if producers of “Cougar Town” have their way. The co-creator of the comedy that follows “Modern Family” is looking to change its name for the second season. Why the possible switcharoo? “Partly as a result of common sense and partly from their 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,’” the show’s co-creator Bill Lawrence told Hit Fix. “And then they screen an episode, and people go, ‘Oh, I would watch this show.’” Lawrence says he jokes that the show should be called “Friends and Neighbors.” “Cougar Town” star Courteney Cox was a co-star of the long-running sitcom “Friends.”
