    kill it. this show sucks way 2 much….its just a waste of a time slot. look at these numbers can you honestly say a show with 2.07 M should be renewed? no.

  2. Brittnie says

    Love this show!!! It is by far one of the best shows out there right now! Please please don’t cancel it!!!

  3. says

    I too think that the show was hurt by moving nights, and losing its connection to Modern Family on Wed didn’t help either. I assume many set in for a night of comedies than abc got greedy and tried to make 2 big comedy nights instead of one good one.

  4. Rudy says

    I really like this show, and I thought it was gaining momentum after being paired with “Don’t Trust the B”, but it looks like people have tuned out of both shows this year. Both shows have lost half their audience from last season. Wonder what all of those people are watching this year??

  5. korean doodie says

    Happy Ending ratings have been hurt because its been moving around too much and during election season, it wasn’t on consistently on Tuesdays.

  6. SNAPPS says

    I think Happy Endings has the potential to keep doing good but only time will tell how the ratings could hold up. I didn’t think I would care much for this show but after a few episodes I’ve enjoyed it.
