Although it had a very strong fan-base and popular social-media following, it looks like ABC did not trust “Happy Ending” to pull in the ratings that the company had hoped for in Season 4.
The show will end after three-seasons with the network, Sony Pictures Television and ABC confirmed with us the cancelation moments ago. The show seemed like a perfect fit for ABC’s Tuesday comedy line-up, but in the end it couldn’t compete with NBC and Fox for the ratings. The May 3 season finale finished with a 0.8 and 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 though on average it maintained a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49.
The show is being considered by the USA Network, which may take-on the show now that it has been canceled. The series is strongly backed by Sony TV, which still has hopes for reviving it. Fans will just have to wait and see if Sony can successfully shop the series to another network.
