ABC pulls ‘Happy Town,’ will burn off in summer

Despite an aggressive ad campaign, ABC viewers let the name fool them.

After this week, ABC is pulling “Happy Town” from its schedule for the rest of the month/season.

The decision comes after two episodes have aired of the Wednesday night show, which dropped 29% for its second week to a decidedly unhappy 1.2 adult demo rating. ABC will air another episode Wednesday night, then burn off the remaining five episodes starting June 2.

So, to recap: episode 3 shall be airing tonight, but we have to wait until June 2 for [Amy’s centric] episode 4 and the remaining 4 episodes to make up the full 8 episode order. This is confirmed by the show’s official Twitter although they also say that the show hasn’t been axed; they’re optimistic to see what happens in June.

Ep. 3 is tomorrow, Eps. 4-8 are June 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30th. Two weeks break in between. After that, who knows.

EDIT: Further clarification regarding the status of Happy Town has been posted by Amy’s co-star, Geoff Stults, on his official Twitter.

So just for some clarification folks…….Happy Town has NOT been cancelled. It is going off the air for 3 weeks and then will finish.
