ABC Banishes Happy Endings to Fridays
Happy news it’s not: ABC is exiling Happy Endings from Tuesdays to Fridays beginning in March, the network announced very late Wednesday.
ABC’s revised Tuesday schedule (which bows on Feb. 26) will consist of Celebrity Wife Swap at 8/7c leading into The Taste at 9/8c.
Happy Endings, which aired its final Tuesday episode last week, makes its Friday debut on March 29, airing back-to-back original episodes from 8-9 pm. (The current Friday-night comedy block of Last Man Standing and Malibu County will have finished their seasons prior to the Happy takeover.)
On the bright side for Happy Endings fans, at least ABC is allowing the ratings-challenged comedy to finish out its season. The same can’t be said for the show’s former Tuesday companion, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23.Follow @MichaelAusiello
