Happy Town: Cancelled by ABC, No Season Two

Happy TownLast week, ABC pulled Happy Town from the schedule for the remainder of May sweeps period. Though things didn’t look good for the mystery TV show, the network didn’t officially cancel it. Now they have.

Happy Town follows the residents of a small town in Minnesota who are terrorized by a killing spree from the mysterious “Magic Man”. The cast includes Sam Neill, M.C. Gainey, Geoff Stults, Lauren German, Amy Acker, Steven Weber, Ben Schnetzer, Sarah Gadon, Jay Paulson, and Robert Wisdom.

On April 28th, the show got off to a bad start with a disappointing 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and just 5.25 million viewers. For episode two, viewership took a nosedive to a 1.2 in the demo and 3.79 million viewers. ABC announced they were putting the TV series on hiatus and the third episode’s numbers dropped further still, to a 1.1 rating and 3.04 million viewers.

This week, ABC announced the new 2010-11 schedule and, not surprisingly, Happy Town wasn’t on it. The show has now been cancelled though the network still plans to run the remaining five episodes. They’ll start airing on June 2nd.

What do you think? Are you surprised that Happy Town has been cancelled? Will you still tune in to see the remaining episodes?

I just found this awesome show, and now it’s cancelled? why , was it too good ABC? Holy! get it back, I’m left with a cliffhanger, this show was great. There’s so much crap to weed through, thank God for Hulu.com, I get turned on to so much great content. Give’s me hope , except for the networks cancelling the good stuff, and leaving the dumb shows on. Too bad. But in case they’re reading it, to the cast: AWESOME JOB PEOPLE< Thanks
