ABC has announced some changes to their mid-season schedule. Struggling Happy Endings is heading to Friday nights (once Last Man Standing and Malibu Country have completed their seasons) and Celebrity Wife Swap will debut on Tuesday nights.
Here’s the press release with additional details:
ABC ANNOUNCES MIDSEASON SCHEDULING MOVES
“Celebrity Wife Swap” Returns with All-New Episodes Beginning Tuesday, February 26 at 8:00 p.m., and “The Taste” Moves to 9:00 p.m. That Same Night
“Happy Endings” Moves to Fridays at 8:00 p.m. Starting March 29
ABC announces midseason scheduling moves, with “Celebrity Wife Swap,” the reality series that shines a light on how controversial celebrities really live their lives, returning on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26 from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET with all-new episodes, and competitive cooking show “The Taste” moving back an hour to 9:00-10:00 p.m., starting that same night. Beginning FRIDAY, MARCH 29, critically acclaimed comedy “Happy Endings” will move to Friday nights, airing back-to-back original episodes from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET.
Editors please note: The Friday night comedy block of “Last Man Standing” and “Malibu Country” will have aired their season finales prior to “Happy Endings” taking over that timeslot.
The February 26 season premiere of “Celebrity Wife Swap” features the unlikeliest of moms swapping lives — “Splash” contestant and Playmate Kendra Wilkinson and reality super mom Kate Gosselin of “Kate Plus Eight” fame. “Celebrity Wife Swap” follows mothers in two celebrity families with very different values as they swap lifestyles, children and homes (but not bedrooms), for one week and embark on a journey like no other. They’re given the chance to see how another celebrity raises their children and deals with life in the spotlight, while allowing both couples the opportunity to re-discover why they love each other and why they decided to get together in the first place.
What do you think? Is this good news or bad news for Happy Endings’ future? Will you be tuning in for the return of Celebrity Wife Swap?
