In a follow up segment, Fleetwood from Dallas, TX gives an update on his customized cruiser bike business, Villy Customs, which Barbara and Mark invested in during Season 3, on “Shark Tank,” SUNDAY, JANUARY 20 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

    ABC is a mess changing it’s schedule just like what Fox Did and look at them now you should learn from others mistakes ABC. And for Happy Endings not getting good ratings its ABC’s fault they moved the show so soon it should have stayed there for atleast one more season for more people to watch and then move it to a night where it doesnt have to deal with 2 great comedies so that fans can watch the show and not think of the other show they are missing ABC just skrewed themselves up and now Happy Endings is going to get canceled and if it does im done with watching a new ABC show first Last Resort and now Happy Endings no more watching new shows im just going to stick with what i watch now which is Once, Revenge, Modern Family, and Last man standing.

  • jimmers

    So agree! I yet still do NOT get why people tend to want to watch Reality vs. HILARIOUS shows out there such as, HAPPY ENDINGS. Dancing with the Stars? The Voice? Yeah it brings numbers…but REALLY?! Do people care that much after a contestant wins anyways? NO! Who cares who wins for a no-body, has been’s dancing competition. Happy Endings deserves recognition it.

  • Bryan

    No, to all the people saying Happy Endings and Apt 23 shouldn’t be cancelled. Their ratings are low, the suck and they were both put after Modern Family on Wednesdays to gain an audience and failed. They are a waste of valuable on air time, and should be replaced with shows that will entertain more people and generate profits for the networks.

  • Ally

    I guess ABCs president was full of it at the tca tour which I suspected.

  • DenverDean

    If anything, ABC should’ve considered airing BoP repeats in the slot to remind people it’s coming back next month. A drama following Revenge is more likely to do OK rather than the comedies. Not sure how ST will do at that hour, but definitely better than what aired previous two weeks. Comedies at 10 pm do NOT work on network TV. Plain and simple.

  • David Howell

    All I can say is “ouch” and “HE can now be moved to certain cancellation on ABC”.

    BoP reruns would have made a good move, especially as it’s a procedural. That’s why it got renewed – it does only slightly more horrifically in reruns than on initial transmission!

  • CenterGravity

    Time to renew Last Resort! ;-)

  • rob60990

    I know Shark Tank repeats well but ABC needs to stop plugging this show in so many timeslots. It’s aired reruns on Tuesday and will also air reruns for 2 weeks Thursday at 8 after LR ends and before Zero Hour premieres.

  • Bee

    so dumb.

    1. it’s just one more week and it’s not like it’s during sweeps
    2. happy endings and apt. 23 better not have to burn off episodes during summer. put them ANYWHERE. replace a repeat of nashville one night.
    3. shark tank? really? put a repeat of a strong episode o scandal or nashville or something.

  • dave

    It’s possible they did it cause of NFL playoffs cbs has a new h5o episode at 10 on Sunday

  • dave

    The last resort got a raw deal it got better and better didn’t get a chance

  • Kyle7

    The Sunday/Tuesday scheduling was interesting while it lasted…

  • Dan S

    Noooooooooooooooo !!!!!!!!!!!! Can ABC at least bring back the final 4 eps of 666 before Red Widow premieres ?

  • Bookworm

    I’m not shocked but they should have kept 666 Park Ave because the ratings are basically the same for both and they could have finished all the episodes like they are doing with Last Resort.

  • JR35

    Shark Tank initially aired on Sundays, but I don’t think ABC is testing it out there, as it needs it on Fridays.

  • Sofaslug

    I’m sorry but America your awful! HE and b are the best shows abc and any other network have running at the moment! You make me embarrassed to be American!

  • SJ

    Damn it, ABC! One more episode on Sundays – just the ONE you had planned for next week – and Don’t Trust the B would have aired all its episodes (combined with its Tuesday airings through March). At this rate, there’s going to be one unaired one unless they slot it elsewhere.

    They should have just kept the shows there for one more week and then air four more episodes of Happy Endings on two Sundays in February (because it has four more episodes than Don’t Trust the B) and ALL episodes of BOTH shows would have aired. But no, they’re too stupid to see what’s right in front of them!

  • a p garcia

    I prefer 666 PA to HE and 23.

  • a p garcia

    Even GCB to HE & 23

  • Dan

    My guess is by February, the shows will be gone from Tuesday and dropped off the schedule.
