ABC Spurns Canceled Series, Yanks Remaining Episodes Off the Air Deadline
ABC has decided to pull the remaining episodes of a canceled drama series off the air as part of a lineup shuffle, Deadline.com reports. "666 Park Avenue,” which was set to air Sunday nights at 10 p.m. ET, is being replaced with leftover episodes of the comedies "Happy Endings" and "Don't Trust the B__ in Apt. 23," the story reports.
For the first three weeks in January, new eps of the sitcoms will be shown, while additional new shows of the series will air in the regular Tuesday time slot of 9-10 p.m. ET.
The unaired episodes of "666 Park Ave." will be burned off during the summer. For January, the Sunday airings of "Happy Endings" and "Apt. 23" will air on Jan. 6, 13 and 20. On Sunday, Jan. 27, ABC is scheduled to show a Hallmark movie.
ABC hasn't announced the plan for Feb. 3, 10 and 17, but if the comedies succeed, "Happy Endings" can continue in that spot because enough episodes have been ordered for the year. ABC has the Academy Awards scheduled for Feb. 24, followed by the premiere of midseason drama "Red Widow" the following Sunday.
