ABC Vacates "Apt. 23", Leaves Eight Episodes Unaired

Don't Trust The B In Apt. 23

It's a sad day for fans of smart, adult-oriented comedy. ABC announced today that they are pulling the eight remaining produced episodes of Don't Trust The B In Apt. 23, effective next week. Tonight won't be effected by the change, as ABC had already scheduled the premiere of "The Taste" for 8-10pm.

Starting next Tuesday, Happy Endings will begin showing two new episodes per week, one in its usual slot, and the other in "Apt. 23's" now former home. ABC has yet to comment as to when the rest of the eight already shot episodes of the sophomore comedy will hit the air, but I wouldn't be surprised if they just end up being burned off in the dog days of summer, or on the network website. Why Happy Endings (which draws nearly as awful ratings as "the B") is getting a stay of execution is unclear, although I guess you don't have to run faster than the cancellation axe, you just have to run faster than the show next to you.

Which brings us to the "million dollar question". Is "Apt. 23" canceled entirely? ABC says no, but series co-star James Van Der Beek doesn't buy it. The actor tweeted the following earlier today: "Translation: We’ve basically been cancelled." Sadly for fans, the former Dawson Leery is most likely correct. ABC never "officially" canceled Last Resort or 666 Park Avenue after pulling them off the air either, and I don't think anyone is under the impression that those shows have a hope in hell of returning.

Should ABC cancel The B In Apt. 23? Or is this just another in a line of recent missteps by the network?

I can watch 23, but I'll shut off the TV and clean my toilet before I'll watch another episode of Happy Endings. Just rename 23 to "Tall Girl, No Panties" and it'll draw enough of a crowd to sell a few more ads for ABC. Replacing 23 with more episodes of Happy Endings is just going to cost ABC more viewers - nobody is masochistic enough to watch back-to-back episodes of something that bad.
