  • Its such a shame Happy Endings is constantly getting pushed around the schedule. Its a terrific show that everyone should watch. I am not even in its main demographic and I love it. If you’re not watching it, you should. Don’t let what happened to Pushing Daisies happen to Happy Endings.

    • While I do agree with the show deserving a renewal (and Pushing Daisies was AMAZING), everything was pre-empted last week because of the Boston Bomber. It was out of ABC’s control.

      • I know that Steven. Last week was a special circumstance. But its been getting moved around since December, doubling up here and there, or not appearing on the line-up at all. Then it got moved to Friday nights…not the greatest night to have your show that caters to the young, single demographic.

      • You mean Pushing Daisies was A-MAH-ZING don’t you? Which it was.

    • You realize the reason for the rescheduling was because of the Boston tragedy, right? It gets moved around because after spending an entire season and a half behind Modern Family, it proved it couldn’t hold its own.

    • Agreed. But last week was a special circumstance. However, the fact that both episodes are available online will likely hurt their ratings even more.

      • How do you figure that? Very few people are watching the show anyways, it’s only die hard fans left at this point and they will watch all the time anywise. The ratings will continue to slip down.

    • I watched the first season and it wasn’t that funny.Why not let men act like men instead of bumbling dummies?

  • I understood why the Happy Endings episodes were rescheduled in the first place, and had been looking for them on the ABC iPad app. Unfortunately, I wont be around to view during the replacement time/date, but I appreciate knowing they’ll be on then. It will be hard, but I can wait an additional week for the 3rd Kerkovich sister…

  • Already watched the 2 episodes when they were accidentally put on Hulu on Saturday…oops ABC. But they were great as usual!

  • Will the missed episode of Grimm also be rescheduled?

    Comment by Ashlyn – April 22, 2013 01:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Not 100% sure. NBC already planned to move GRIMM to Tuesday nights beginning April 30th at 10 p.m. which follows two hour weekly episodes of The Voice until May 21st.

    • They announced on the official Grimm Faxcebook page that the episode will air this Friday.

      • Facebook…sorry about the typo.

  • Hate to wonder if the May 3rd “season finale” of Happy Endings may turned into a “series finale” or if the sitcom gets “saved”, they better move it to another network like USA Network. :-)

    • At this point, I’m kind of hoping that USA just picks it up. I think it will get more respect there and not get thrown around to different days of the week.

      Comment by Spencer – April 22, 2013 05:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I think there’s a solid chance USA will pick up the show. They are going to need a half-hour to pair with the syndicated repeats of Modern Family. They have a couple of comedy pilots in the pipeline, but I would imagine they will want a rotation of shows to slot in after Modern Family throughout the year.

  • I am not liking this Soup spin-off. The show becomes diluted if that makes sense. I loved when they had a web-clip section & hated their Web Soup spin-off

  • I watched it on Hulu on Saturday and didnt think anything of it that I saw that it expired on that day thought it was weird but I already watched it so it didn’t matter.

  • Or one could fine them online streaming

  • Why does one of my favorite actresses have to be on a show I’m trying not to watch so TLG can stay on.

  • Lol, by spin off my first thought was a ‘Gay Shows’ only lol

  • At least is ABC doesn’t pull through and keep Happy Endings around we “sort of” get an extra week of it. Ok ok I know we don’t actually, but I’m happy with anything they do for this show, except cancel it, because it is THE BEST!

  • So is The Soup spin-off in continuity with the show? Is it like Baywatch Nights where the cast opens up an P.I agency to earn extra money? Or is this going to be like the Daily Show with fake news reporters following real people?
