ABC has yanked one of its sitcoms from its schedule, effective immediately, reports our friend Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
The sitcom involved is "Don’t Trust the B– In Apt. 23."
Writes Andreeva, "While ABC does not call this a cancellation, the decision de facto seals the fate of the low-rated sophomore comedy whose unaired episodes are likely headed for summer. On Twitter, ‘Apt. 23′ co-star James Van Der Beek called the move for what it is: ‘Sad to say ABC has pulled #Apt23 and will not be airing the 8 remaining episodes any time soon,’ he said. ‘Translation: we’ve basically been cancelled.’"
The story adds, "With ‘Apt. 23′ gone, ABC will double pump its time slot companion, ‘Happy Endings,’ in the Tuesday 9 PM hour until the block is dissolved on March 19 and replaced with the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ results show. … ‘Apt. 23′ averaged 3.7 million total viewers and a 1.5/4 in 18-49 on Tuesdays this season."
The series also starred Krysten Ritter as the B in the title.
