Episode 02-01: Wednesday, 9/28/11
The sitcom kicked off the season with a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.25 million viewers. Those aren’t great numbers, especially considering the strength of its Modern Family lead-in, but they do represent a series high for the sophomore show. It’s also outperforming The Middle and several of the network’s new shows.


Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.0 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Happy Endings TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

This is probably the best series I’ve ever watched!!! The whole cast is amazing and I get a kick out of it every week. There should DEFINATELY be another season to follow! GOOOO ALEX AND DAVE!!!! :)

Keith March 15, 2012 at 1:25 pm

I watched a few of the episodes and they had some funny moments.The girls are funny and look good,but the guys don’t act like real guys.

Bethany January 20, 2012 at 11:15 am

I absolutely LOVE to watch this show. The cast is amazing, the writers are hillarous, and it gives me a reason to look forward to the 9:30 (CST) timeslot on Wednesday Nights. This show had better see a season 3 and beyond if they keep it the way it is now.

i love this show!! it’s hilarious. one of my favorite comedies out there on tv at the moment.

Caprice W. November 25, 2011 at 2:31 pm

I missed the first season but I have NEVER missed a single episode of this season. This is one of the funniest shows I have watched since Seinfeld. The way the characters get along so naturally, it doesn’t even seem like they have a script. Damon Wayans Jr is on his way to being funnier than his whole family!!! PLEASE DON’T CANCEL!!!!!!!

Judi November 3, 2011 at 8:09 pm

love love love love this show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it is time for a next generation ‘friends’

Tha Critic November 3, 2011 at 6:07 pm

A “Friends”-esque sitcom that works. Great cast, sharp writing.

Rhoda November 2, 2011 at 9:30 am

Absolutely LOVE this show!!! Great acting and HILARIOUS lines/stories. Hope this show is around for many years to come!

Bull Halsey October 28, 2011 at 8:30 am

I love this show, it is the only reason I watch “Modern Family” and the other Wednesday night line-up (yes, I have no doubt I am the only one that watches “Modern Family” because of “Happy Endings”) – but it’s so clever and witty I always watch it twice to catch all the jokes and puns – it’s my heroin.

Craig October 13, 2011 at 11:50 am

I am not quite as excited about this show as RCA and the others. Modern Family is the reason this show is doing well. On its own, it is the weakest of the Wednesday sitcoms on ABC by a wide margin.

RCA October 1, 2011 at 7:24 pm

This could be the next friends! Amazingly written and acted show

carol gefter October 1, 2011 at 6:08 pm
