looking forward to Ken Jenkins on the episode.

I hope enough people watch this to get it renewed. Almost everyone I talk to has no interest in watching this show because of the stupid title.

Apparently only a handful were watching.

4.8M viewers and 1.8 in the demos. Lost almost 3M viewers from it's lead-in, Last Man Standing. Those numbers are way down compared to when it was on Wednesday.

Bad debut numbers.

Tim Allen ain't a good lead-in for this show demographically, but I bet they figured they'd put it behind something with good numbers (I'm assuming LMS has good numbers for ABC) to see how it did. Bill Lawrence has been nothing but kind and respectful of Happy Endings, but he's gotta miss that post-Modern Family slot.

It was the only slot available, so they pretty much had no choice. I agree the people who do watch Tim Allen's show probably aren't sticking around for Cougar Town. And those who are watching it are probably not watching it live.

You would think a show in it's 3rd season already has an established fanbase and will watch it wherever it moves to. Apparently not.

It bet it sucks to be a network marketing exec in 2012.

They should "cancel" Cougar Town and then just start over with a new title next fall and see what happens.

^ No joke. I was thinking the same thing. They should just run with one of the faux titles they use in the opening credits.

So renaming the show next season is going to get more people to watch? Are you assuming that people will think it's a new show and tune in to check it out?

I heard someone from the cast (I think Courtney) say that they can't change the name because then everyone who had been recording it on DVR would no longer get it recorded. I guess they don't feel their fans would be willing to create a new recording for the new title!

I just think that changing the name of the show would make for some memorable advertising and maybe finally get the point across to everyone that doesn't watch the show (or only watched the first few episodes) that this isn't a show about cougars.

They could make some really fun and funny commercials about the changing of the title.

But if they didn't have the balls to do it already, then they probably never will.

Okay, so I will be the 1st guy commenting who actually saw this episode.

Funny episode. I liked how Jules Dad and Travis was screwing with Grayson about shooting the horse. at Grayson actually going into the barn and they freaked out.

at the sad men Zip line.

I think it's been mentioned before, but does anyone find Christa Miller's appearance a little weird? Her face looks like it's had a few too many lifts.

Did anyone see the new title card?

Titles we like better than

Cougar Town

Sunshine State

The Drinking Age

Cougar City

Mid-Life



It's funny how alot of people couldn't wait for this come back, yet it's still one of the more low key, not really talked about sitcoms on the Internet.

Thanks for typing out all the other show names. I couldn't remember them all. I kinda like "The Drinking Age".

The sad men Zip line had me .

but does anyone find Christa Miller's appearance a little weird?
I actually think her face is slowly starting to look better, but yeah I agree with you.

She still looks awful to me, especially those lips. She ruined herself. Plus her face is so tight she can't convincingly portray emotions, should she ever need to (not like her character encounters a wide range of emotions).

yeah, I thought it actually looked a tiny bit better this season, but it's hard to tell. I'm just glad the show is back.

at the eavesdropping ninja bit.
