ABC apparently doesn’t trust the “b” to deliver stopgap ratings.
“Happy Endings” and “Don’t Trust the B@#$% in Apartment 23” aired new episodes on Sundays, starting Jan. 6. They replaced supernatural drama “666 Park Avenue.”
The two comedies will be replaced this Sunday by a “Shark Tank” rerun during the 10 p.m. hour.
ABC will show “The Makeover,” a Hallmark movie, Jan. 27. The Oscars ceremony will be broadcast Feb. 24, and “Red Widow,” a midseason drama, will start in the Sunday night slot March 3.
“Happy Endings” and “Apartment 23” haven’t set the world on fire on Tuesday nights, and slipped to series lows on Sunday. Last week they did not even get a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49.
The two shows will also continue to air in their regular 9 p.m. ET Tuesday time slot.
The two comedies are expected to go off ABC’s schedule in March, when “Dancing With the Stars” returns. Any leftover episodes would then be shown in the summer, as will the final episode of “666 Park Avenue.”
“Happy Endings” stars Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert and Damon Wayans Jr., while Krysten Ritter is the “B” in Apartment 23.
“Shark Tank” is a reality show where a panel of “sharks” consider offers from entepreneurs looking for investments.
