I heard a great story about TV’s Cougar Town creator Bill Lawrence (also creator of Scrubs and Spin City) on Howard Stern yesterday. He wants to change the name of his 3-year-old show because he thinks that name turns so many people off (both men and women) and has kept it from being as successful as it could/should be.
He has a Twitter campaign to create a new name for this show and added a questionnaire asking, “Are you embarrassed to admit you like Cougar Town because of the name?” He plans to go to his network with this data and request that they change the name of his show for the 2011-2012 TV season.
Sucky rock band names are all over rock radio (esp. College Rock radio) but you never see a band dump their name once they get to the big leagues.
Is there a band that you can not admit to liking because of their name?
Is there a band that you never gave a chance due to their name? (and that later you ended up liking?)
Feel free to come up with a new name for said band and we may just campaign for a name change on their behalf.
