20 Beloved TV Shows That Had Totally Different Titles At First!

Don’t you also think that some of the movies and TV shows we love have pretty strange titles? Doesn’t Buffy, The Vampire Slayer sound a little cheesy, for example?

But once we get used them, those outlandish titles firmly belong to the respective shows. Still, of course, names don’t come naturally – they are the result of long production meetings and commercial discussions on what the viewers may like most.

Thus, many of the shows and movies we love used to have totally different titles before they were actually broadcasted.

Here are a few examples for such renamings: 20 popular shows which originally had completely different names!
