Happy Endings cancelled

Per EW:

Sad, I loved the show. Not as strong as last season but still really good.

There are rumors that USA Network has expressed interest, but no deal yet.

Here's the background story: http://sports.nationalpost.com/2013/...the-stink-eye/ It's as close as we get to national scandals in Canada.

I'm disgusted. And pissed. This was the only show outside of Modern Family that consistently makes us laugh out loud.

I thought the woman in front was reacting as if Cuthbert had spit in her hair, but wasn't certain enough that Cuthbert was the culprit to actually smack her. Guess I misunderstood.

Was pissed to hear this earlier... this was the only comedy on network TV I had left, and one of my favorite comedies to date... fit right in with my sense of humor. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for USA because I'd hate to not see the show again. USA seems like an odd fit since they have no half-hour comedy programming but if they want to get into that market, I'm hoping starting with a show that has at least some kind of fan base might make sense.

I was hoping that if ABC's new comedies didn't work out that would spell renewal for this one but guess they're just cleaning house.

Too bad, it was a smart, funny show. I especially loved the Penny Car Czar affair this season.

Wouldn't it work better paired with Cougar Town on TNT?

I think you mean TBS.
I read somewhere that USA wasn't the only network they were going to reach out to and that TBS was on the table as well. So there is a chance that it could end up there.

Yes, you're right TBS.

TNT is the future home of Jimmy Fallon.

USA purchased the first-run syndication rights to Modern Family and they start airing it this fall, so there's been lots of speculation that USA would want to use Modern Family as a lead in for something original.

Bummer. I really love this show. Hopefully it gets picked up by one of the cable nets.

Elisha Cuthbert needed to free her schedule for the reprisal of 24 next May anyhow. I hear the Mountain Lion is freeing their schedule as well.

I enjoy the show, but there are some parts that are just cringeworthy and I have to fast foward through them. I can see how some parts of the show just turns viewers off.

Anything that has to do with Dave Rose.

Not looking good for a USA pick up.

http://www.deadline.com/2013/05/late...-psych-at-usa/

Talks between USA and leading Happy Endings producer Sony TV continue. At this point, I hear a pickup appears unlikely but the network is carefully exploring the opportunity to migrate a show with some success on broadcast TV and a dedicated fan base the way ABC’s Cougar Town moved to TBS.

I'm still sad Happy Endings got cancelled. Every time I see Wayons on New Girl, it reminds me of how much I miss this show.
