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.
