Happy Endings Axed By ABC — Next Stop USA?

Get More: Cancellations

Happy Endings CancelledAnd now for some not-so-ah-mazing news: ABC has pulled the plug on Happy Endings.

RELATED | ABC Renews Grey’s, Scandal, Suburgatory, Nashville and 6 Others

USA Network has expressed interest in pulling a Cougar Town/TBS and acquiring the series, but no deal is in place at this time. A insider tells TVLine that Sony — the studio behind the show — is going to “fight like hell” to save the show. So there’s that.

TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect this unfortunate development.

  • Not at all surprised, but my heart is still breaking. This was one of my only must-see shows. Every moment was a-mahzing. I hope USA picks it up, but of they don’t, at least we have three fantastic seasons with which to remember it by.

  • I wish someone would pick up Happy Endings and Go On from NBC. Both shows deserve renewal.

    • Agreed. And, with The Office ending, it seems like there’s going to a dearth in good comedies next year :(

  • Ugh! ABC all but ensured its death when it banished the show to Fridays. This sucks because Happy Endings is so much better than a lot of the crap tv today. I really hopes USA or some other network picks it up.

  • Happy Endings is such a great show. ABC should have let it develop into a long-term success. See Scrubs, HIMYM, News Radio.

  • I don’t even watch this show and I am still hoping it will land on another network like USA. Today was truly a bloodbath, and there were definitely some surprises and a lot of disappointments. I really hope that for Happy Endings fans’ sake that this show will live on. From everything I’ve heard about it, it certainly deserves to (creatively anyway – the ratings obviously say otherwise). Come on, USA!

  • I personally don’t care for the show, but a lot of people love it so I hope it finds a new home. I know how much I loved TBS for picking up CougarTown.

  • I agree, Noooooooooooo.
    I hope USA will give this show another shot. The network could use another comedy.

  • Sad to see it go! Was never a favorite, but it always had a few laughs, and was definitely better than a lot of the junk on TV. :(

  • I hardly comment, however i did some searching and wound up here Happy Endings Cancelled By ABC –
    TVLine. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to
    mind. Could it be just me or does it look like a few of the comments appear like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places,
    I’d like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  • ABC should cancel the monotone adopted child on Modern Family. Happy Endings was the only show on the air with true diversity!

  • Proof positive that a monkey could run a TV network. Show doesn’t go through the roof but does well. Let’s move it to Friday so we can watch a bunch of stupid “celebrities” dance and jump into a pool. Oh look, lousy ratings on Friday night. Let’s cancel it.

  • YEAH Happy Endings is being Cancelled. Love it. Also what a joke a blk guy with white woman give up people. It will never happen. That’s why it being cancelled. Thanks for finally noticing it.

    • Have you been watching TV the last 10 years or so? The Kardashian women don’t seem to want ANY man if he isn’t black. Coco and Ice-T? Kendra and what’s his name? Doesn’t seem out of the ordinary or strange to me, although all the aforementioned woman seem kinda strange and NOT because they want black men for mates.

      Comment by Mike – May 11, 2013 11:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • LOL. The show Private Practice lasted for 6 seasons. And it featured an on-and-off couple which included a black man and white woman. Is Taye Diggs or on your words “blk man” the reason why Private Practice ended? Truly moronic post by Jennifer.

      Comment by Chris – May 15, 2013 04:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Happy ending was not funny at all. They should never casted a blk guy on that show. He just dont fit in the crowd. Should have casted a asian guy instead than he will fit in the crowd.

    Comment by Jennifer – May 11, 2013 10:51 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • LOL. Definitely one of the most ignorant posts I’ve read in a long long time. The “black guy” you so refer to comes from a family with a huge/ successful comedy background. He was good enough to be cast in 2 great shows, Happy Endings and New Girl. Of course he had pursue Happy Endings for contract reasons. No one wants to see a white woman with a black man? Your age and upbringing definitely shows. I truly feel sorry for you and your lack of maturity.

  • Sony give up morons the show is a total Failure and get rid of blk guy that what caused the show to Fail….

  • “How to live with your parents for the rest of your life” is absolutely the funniest show. You didn’t even give it a chance. Lame.
