Fans of ABC’s quirky Tuesday comedy Don’t Trust The B--- In Apt. 23 are not going to like this news. The network has decided that it will not air the rest of its second season.
A network rep confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter today, noting that the show will be replaced by another episode of Happy Endings. Neither show has drawn strong ratings for the network and both have been shuffled frequently since they premiered.
ABC had tried to burn off episodes of both shows with special airings on Sundays, but after two weeks, that idea was abandoned. This latest change will go into effect on Jan. 29. Tonight, the network will air the two-hour premiere of The Taste.
Earlier this month, ABC chief Paul Lee said that he was “proud” of the two shows, although he admitted that they really don’t fit on ABC’s schedule.
“We love those two shows. They are incredibly distinctive, they're incredibly well-written,” Lee told the media, reports The Huffington Post. However, “we didn't have much place to put them.”
Don’t Trust The B’s last few episodes had been airing out of sequence and it is not known if the final eight episodes will ever air. The series centered on two roommates with very different personalities and co-starred James Van Der Beek as a fictional version of himself. One storyline featured him practicing for Dancing with the Stars. It averaged just a 1.2 18-49 rating this season.
