Happy Endings And Don't Trust The B Pulled From Sunday Nights After Low Ratings
Remember that plan ABC had to air two episodes of Happy Endings and Don't Trust The B---- In Apt 23 a week throughout January? The half-hour comedies were set to air new episodes on Sundays, filling the gap left by 666 Park Avenue, and then air new episodes again during their usual time slot on Tuesday nights. After giving it a shot with poor ratings results, it looks like ABC's scrapping that plan.
According to THR, both comedies, which were performing modestly in the ratings on Tuesday nights, slipped to series lows this weekend in their Sunday night airings, falling below a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49. Of course, they had the Golden Globes to compete with on Sunday nights, but even so, Sundays are a busy night for television in general and maybe not the best night to place two modestly-rated comedies. ABC apparently sees that now as they're reverting back to the usual routine for Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B in sticking to Tuesday nights at 9:00 and 9:30 p.m.
While those fans who were excited to have two episodes of both shows a week might be disappointed, those of us with full DVRs on Sundays are likely relieved that ABC's decided to drop this plan. Don't Trust the B and Happy Endings will occupy their usual spots on Tuesday nights until Dancing with the Stars returns, and a rerun of Shark Tank will air on Sunday nights for the rest of the month.
