This Just In: ABC pulls 'Happy Town'


Some sad news for fans of ABC’s Happy Town (Hello? Anyone? Bueller?). The poor man’s Twin Peaks is getting yanked off the air after this week’s airing. According to ABC, the ratings-challenged drama - which will be replaced with a Primetime special on May 19 and a rebroadcast of Transformers on May 26 - will return on June 2 with the first of five remaining episodes.

I don't think that is right. The show didn't stand a chance and ABC is to blame. I hadn't even heard of the series until I ran across it by complete accident, as it was going off even. Still it struck my interest enough to look it up, find out when it airs, and catch up on the episodes I'd missed.I think Happy Town has real potential but ABC wouldn't know that. Most of their stuff is weak and lacks originality. Perhaps CW of Fox will pick up Happy Town and give it the promotion and attention it deserves.ABC is a dying network as far as I'm concerned. I mistakenly thought perhaps their executives got a clue but I guess I was wrong.Two thumbs down for CBS, considering its entire lack of intestinal fortitude, just doesn't make the point firmly enough. Since I don't have any more thumbs, perhaps I might offer them a couple other digits to relay how I truly feel about their decision to pull the only descent series it had going for it?

I must say, i think that the networks are giving up hope on new shows, faster and faster these days. Its ridiculous to expect EVERY show that you air to appeal to millions of viewers within the first few broadcasts. VERY DISAPPOINTING ABC!!! Didn't anyone ever tell you that no one likes a quitter?

I agree! I really like this how, and i want to see it unfold. But they never let that happen. There was another great show Better Off Ted, really funny and really great. Sadly after so many shows, ABC decided to take it off. Wonderfalls, another great show. only was allowed to show 3 shows before it was taking off. It sucks. I hope someone else takes this show and gives it a good home.

This is the kind of show that develops a cult following, then the word of mouth spreads like wildfire. It really is too bad that ABC is too short sighted to realize that.

I loved this. It was gripping from the start and its unfair that they didn't give it a chance. They obviously didn't advertise it enough because most haven't heard of it.
They can't keep dropping shows like this.
