Try as they might, but they can't keep a good Bitch down. Especially the Bitch in Apartment 23, as the ABC sitcom has undergone a second name change, according to Entertainment Weekly. Once known as Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23, the show was shortened to Apartment 23 when the series received a pickup this past May. However, there's been a sort of compromise and now Apartment 23 will be known as...
Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23.
There's no indication of how this will be pronounced when referring to the show (a'la how $#*! My Dad Says was known as Bleep My Dad Says), but it gives the show a little more personality and bite that the previously ambiguous title lacked. Here's hoping that it doesn't scare people off like its future timeslot partner Cougar Town's title, something that still holds people back from giving the well-received show a shot.
Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 tells the story of June (Dreama Walker, Gran Torino), a woman who lost her job that has to get a roommate in order to stay in New York City. That roommate, Chloe (Krysten Ritter, Breaking Bad), swindles her out of her remaining money, but June finds a way to get back at her and ends up being accepted by the girl she once despised. James Van Der Beek will be co-starring as, well, James Van Der Beek.
What do you think about the name change? Do you think Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 will be a good fit with Cougar Town? Which other celebrities do you want to see make guest appearances to parody themselves?
