At the TCA Summer Press Tour, ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee talked about the recent cancellation of Happy Endings.
Lee noted, “Obviously we were thrilled with Happy Endings behind Modern Family, but a show has to earn its right to attract audience on its own.”
He called the cancellation “very upsetting” but observed that “We never found in the places that we put it, it could bring an audience to it, which was very upsetting because it was a very, very good show and difficult to see [happen]. We couldn’t find its sea legs away from a strong lead-in and that’s why we ended up with that decision.”
What do you think? Should ABC have kept Happy Endings anyway? Did you lose interest in the show or was it always “must see TV” for you?
