Courteney Cox: I loved the fact that we named it that at the beginning, because it was racy and bold, but I also knew that it was never going to be a show about me and younger guys. It was very clear from the beginning that I was going to have an attraction to my neighbor, but I thought the title was fine.
Some people got so turned off by that name, though, that we started talking about changing it in the hope of getting people to ask, "What? What's 'Cougar Town'?" It would bring more awareness to the show, but people also could choose what they wanted it to be called.
