YOUR MOST DISCERNING GLASS EYE IS REQUIRED: Interesting question raised on this week's Firewall and Iceberg podcast, re: Bill Lawrence's desire to rename "Cougar Town" because, as Lawrence noted, "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."
But then the question was, okay, what shows have successfully rebranded? "Sep" and Dan pointed to "These Friends of Mine" becoming "Ellen" and the rebootings of "Dragnet". To that list I can add the whole "Valerie" -> "Valerie's Family: The Hogans" -> "The Hogan Family" ado, and you can argue that "Mayberry R.F.D." was just a rebranded "The Andy Griffifth Show" without Andy Griffith, but surely there are other examples.
