'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' Update: Has ABC Pulled the Remaining Episodes?Kevin Fitzpatrick |
ABC has continually shuffled its Tuesday comedies 'Happy Endings' and 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23,' recently slotting them in to replace '666 Park Avenue' on Sundays, but abandoning the experiment after a single airing due to low ratings. Now, it seems that new schedule adjustments might have pushed most of the remaining 'Happy Endings' episodes to February, leaving little to no room for the remainder of 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23.' Will the shelved episodes lead to the series' cancellation? What about the chances for 'Happy Endings'?
Admittedly a rumor, the latest reports regarding 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' might bode rather ill for the series' fate. According to ABC's schedule, ABC has decided to air a second new episode of 'Happy Endings' on January 29 over 'Apartment 23,' while various pre-emptions prevent either series from airing any subsequent new episodes until February 19th.
Sitcoms Online theorizes that because of a five-week window between February 19 and March 19, after which 'Dancing with the Stars' returns to take over either slot, ABC will likely choose to air the 10 remaining episodes of 'Happy Endings' over any further 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23.' 'Happy Endings' has a better shot of moving forward, being one season away from syndication, so ABC may decide to continue airing two new episodes on Tuesdays to spread awareness.
The future remains in speculation for now, but what say you? Do you think ABC plans to sweep 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' under the rug, effectively cancelling it? Would your rather see new episodes of 'Happy Endings'?
