ABC Cancels ‘Happy Endings’; Will USA Save the Show?
ABC announced Friday evening that they’ve canceled their critically-acclaimed sitcom Happy Endings after three seasons. After being given a late premiere by the network in a super competitive comedy timeslot at the start of the season, Happy Endings saw its ratings drop. The network put the show on hiatus a few months later before burning off the rest of the season on Friday nights, a timeslot that TV people have long called the “Friday night death slot.”
Just because ABC has canceled the show doesn’t mean this is the end yet. Reports began coming in last month that the USA network may be interested in picking up the show for another season just like fellow cable channel TBS did with Cougar Town after ABC axed that show. Here’s hoping that works out and this show finds a stable timeslot for once.
