Cougar TownBill Lawrence has been on a quest to change the name of his hit ABC sitcom from 'Cougar Town' to something else for more than a year. There was talk of it happening before season two, but it never happened.

Instead, the creators just mocked the name with new title cards, such as "Badly titled 'Cougar Town,'" every week. However, with a new season afoot, it looks like Lawrence and co-creator Kevin Biegel are opting for a name change, again.

"Screw it. I'm changing it (if Kevin's cool w it. Someone ask him for me)," Lawrence tweeted."Seriously, we just decided. Will use fans to help w new title."

Suggestions from fans started pouring in. From 'C-Town' to 'Friends With Beverages,' Lawrence, fans and even the stars have been making suggestions.

Busy Phillips voiced her support to her 'Cougar Town' bosses and tweeted this at Lawrence, "Honestly, I think if you change it, it should be totally different. Not even reminiscent of Cougartown... Go for it! Seriously."

Meanwhile, Lawrence's wife and 'Cougar Town' actress Christa Miller weighed-in with this suggestion: "I think the show should be called, 'Color Me Christa.'"

There you have it, the name change is on ... for now.

What do you think the show should be called?
