No one ever followed up to Maddie's post about Happy Town and I see today it's been axed. Or will be, after the summer's over.

ABC pulls 'Happy Town,' will burn off in summer

Despite an aggressive ad campaign, ABC viewers let the name fool them.

After this week, ABC is pulling "Happy Town" from its schedule for the rest of the month/season.

The decision comes after two episodes have aired of the Wednesday night show, which dropped 29% for its second week to a decidedly unhappy 1.2 adult demo rating. ABC will air another episode Wednesday night, then burn off the remaining five episodes starting June 2.

Not that I've even seen an episode, but I'm still disappointed.

I'm not exactly sure. I think it was supposed to be half police drama, half suspense/horror (ala Harper's Ferry). Wikipedia describes it as "A period of peace following a series of unsolved kidnappings is cut short when a new crime has everyone talking in the small Minnesota town of Haplin." I don't do suspense well (or horror at all), but I was interested because Dean Winters was in the pilot and because the stills I saw somewhere or other were wonderfully composed.
