‘Happy Endings’ & ‘Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23′ Move to Sundays

Just a few weeks ago, ABC’s midseason schedule keyed us into the fact that their comedy series Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23 were being taken off the schedule in March when Dancing with the Stars returns. And that the change would happen before either show finished their current episode order.

Well, now some new, slightly more distressing scheduling news says double comedy dose will be heading to Sunday nights to replace the canceled freshman series 666 Park Avenue. But there’s a catch.

Vulture says that Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23 will play on Sundays starting next weekend with January 6th. However, they will also be playing in their normal Tuesday night timeslot as well.

At first that might sound like good news because we’ll get two episodes every week for a few weeks. But that also means this is ABC’s way of getting the episodes out of the way so they don’t have to worry about playing them after they leave the schedule in March.

However, unless this schedule change happens for six weeks, there will still be a handful of leftover episodes by the time March rolls around for Dancing with the Stars. Either way, this is just bad news for fans of both shows, because whenever a network starts messing around with a series schedule this drastically, it usually means they don’t really care about the audience and expect the show to be on its way out.

It might be time to start trying to save Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23 by watching both episodes, every week, for as long as this weird schedule lasts. A petition or two probably couldn’t hurt either, but the best move would be to send ABC some cheesesteaks and Dawson’s Creek DVD’s. That should get the message across, right?

Happy Endings airs on Sundays @10pm and Tuesdays @9pm; Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23 airs on Sundays @10:30pm and Tuesdays at 9:30pm – both on ABC.

  1. I honestly don’t know how to feel about this.

    I love both shows, and they had great ratings last spring, why can’t they just put it back in the Wednesday timeslot?

    And the Sunday episodes is confusing, do the people who watch the Sunday soaps like Once Upon a Time and Revenge also watch those two shows? And they’ll be airing at 9 central, a timeslot where other, much more popular shows, are airing.

  2. It isn’t a bad move though to be honest…
    The current timeslot is heavy competition for comedies, specially if they have a lot of similarities target the same audiences. Because of this the ratings will be influenced in a negative way.

    Trying the sunday timeslot might actually increase the ratings by quite a bit, since people that aren’t interested in serialized dramas now will be offered a different genre to watch…

    If the ratings on sundays turn out to be considerably higher compared to the tuesday airing, then this might actually save the shows from getting axed (which….looking at their current ratings, is likely to happen, if they don’t increase…).

  3. I hope they don’t cancel them.

  4. 30 Rock ending. Community not likely to be renewed. Happy Endings likely to be cancelled. This time next year there will zero sitcoms worth watching.

    • Parks and Rec?
