This Christmas, if you’re looking for someone to pray to and about, be you Christian, Jew, or Etc., might as well make it Hip-Hop Santa and for Happy Endings, and to a lesser extent, Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23, because this bit of scheduling news could be ABC burning off episodes of one of our favorite funny shows from 2012…
ABC announced on Friday (December 21) that starting on January 6, the four scheduled 666 Park Avenue episodes have been pulled and will be replaced with original episodes of Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23.
Slotting Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23 on Sundays has two purposes for ABC: First, it gives additional exposure to two shows that have struggled in Tuesday nights in a comedy-heavy time period and, who knows, maybe viewers have been craving Sunday 10 p.m. comedy. In addition, both Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the Bitch were dropping off of ABC’s schedule in mid-March for Dancing with the Stars, leaving both shows with a number of original episodes unaired. These Sunday airings mean that Don’t Trust the Bitch will have aired all available new episodes by mid-March, though Happy Endings may still have episodes to air after that. (Via)
…or it could be very good news, if America suddenly decides that they’re sick of shi*tty comedies and want something, y’know, funny, so they start watching Happy Endings and Don’t Trust on Sundays, then follow the shows to Tuesday, and suddenly, barbershops everywhere are flooded with people asking for The Jane and Sinbrad’s Greatest Hits goes multi-platinum. It’s an early January miracle! And who would we have to thank for Happy and Don’t becoming the two most popular shows on TV? Mr. Beelzebub himself.
