ABC Pulls Sunday Broadcasts of Two Comedies THR
ABC has pulled the remaining Sunday broadcasts of two comedy series, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed. The network is yanking "Happy Endings" and "Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23" from Sunday night before the two sitcoms leave the schedule in March, the story reports.
The network will replace the programming with a repeat of "Shark Tank" from 10-11 p.m. this Sunday, the story says.
"Both shows have had modest showings in their regular Tuesday time slots. On Sundays, both slipped to series low and this past week didn't even reach a 1.0 rating among adults 18 to 49," the piece reports.
"Both will continue to air on Tuesdays at 9 and 9:30 p.m. until the 'Dancing with the Stars' results show moves into the hour later this season," it notes.
At the Television Critics Association press tour, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee declined to comment on the future of either show. He said the Sunday airings were designed to give a wider audience a chance to see the shows.
