ABC has pulled Don't Trust The B in Apt. 23 from its schedule and will replace it with an extra episode of Happy Endings starting January 29, per The Hollywood Reporter. this means that two episodes of Happy Endings will air back to back on Tuesdays from 9-10 until March when Dancing with the Stars returns.  There is as yet no word on when or if  the remaining eight unaired episodes of Don't Trust The B will air. This move comes after ABC briefly aired extra, out-of-sequence episodes of both comedies on Sunday from 10-11PM, before yanking them off the schedule due to low ratings.

    *sigh* ABC KILLED ANOTHER ONE

    Not a surprise. Goodbye!

    Welp, effectively canceled. Sad. I liked the show. But it’s expected.

  • rob60990

    I know they were doing this on the 29th. I had a feeling they would do this because it ensures that all of HE’s episodes air. It will air exactly all 23 episodes by March 19.

  • Kyle

    I liked this show. Sad.

  • George

    BOOOOOO ABC

  • Michael

    I’m not sure which show this is worse for.

  • Jaxson

    @Michael

    You’re kidding, right? Happy Endings now gets to air its entire season and has no lingering episodes. Apartment 23 is effectively canceled. So…

  • RyanCanada

    this sucks cuz i actually really liked apt23, i just hope they dont cancel Happy Endings, thats like my favorite show.

  • RyanCanada

    does HE have a chance at renewal?

    “I’m not sure which show this is worse for.”

    Certainly worse for Apt 23, but not really good news for Happy Endings.

    It’s death will simply be confirmed later.

    Lol

    Will they atleast burn it off in the summer, you think?
    First they gave 666 Park Ave. the shaft despite promising to air the entire 13 episodes.
    They didn’t promise anything about APT 23 but c’mon give the fans some closure!
    ABC sucks! I only watch them for NASHVILLE, REVENGE AND SCANDAL.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Happy Endings too but things dont look good. agh

  • Kenny

    Sucks ABC should have never have Moved the “B” from the post Modern Family spot, the show was soo funny and original. Way to go ABC! You killed another one

  • Jaxson

    @Bill Gorman

    In what way? Beforehand, Happy Endings wasn’t going to get to air its entire season. Now it does. It’s a bubble show, especially with its syndication value.

  • jimmers

    Happy Endings BETTER get another season ABC! for damn shame. Happy Endings is HILARIOUS! The best out there. Sorry for The B—-….tisk tisk.

    I once had a punching bag I treated better than ABC treated Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23…

    They could have at least burned off the remaining season 1 episode (The Leak) against the Superbowl. This leaves 8 unaired episodes of A23 (1 from season 1 and 7 from season 2).

  • Ian9outof10

    I like Don’t Trust, I think it’s a different and amusing show. Airing it out of sequence was silly though, never understand why they do that.

  • Devin

    I don’t blame ABC. I really liked Apt 23 but it was not catching on. They promote the Hell out of it and nobody watches.
