A current ABC promo advertising the schedule move of its low rated sitcom Happy Endings to Friday asks viewers to “Save Happy Endings“.
Given that when it left ABC’s schedule seven weeks ago Happy Endings was by far ABC’s lowest rated non-Friday scripted show, and its prognosis was already overwhelmingly bleak, is the plea by ABC
- Begging – They’re begging to fans to produce a Friday ratings miracle to save the show!
- Cynical – The show’s dead already, they’re just trying to milk whatever ratings (and ad revenue) they can get from it on Fridays by appeals to desperate fans.
- Joking – It’s a comedy, they’re just joking around! They don’t really mean it! The show’s dead and they’re just having some fun!
