Hey everyone, I hope that you had a wonderful Holiday and New Years (and break from television)- but it is 2013 and shows are coming back just as fast as they left. Tonight I think you should sit back with ABC at 10pm for a new episode of Happy Endings and stay through Don’t Trust the B- in Apartment 23 (pictured above).
Wait a minute! Why in the freck are Happy Endings and The B- new on Sunday, don’t these comedies air new episodes on Tuesdays? Well, ABC? Would you like to explain yourself? (crickets) Last month the usually reliable network pulled 666 Park Ave and decided to replace it with new episodes of two of television’s most underrated comedies- I mean what makes a better pair for the melodramatic soap Revenge than these two shows… right? Right? (ugh) To make matters worse the network is keeping both comedies in their regular slots with new episodes. They say this will give the shows a chance to get new fans and try out a new time slot. What it actually looks like to a fan is that they are burning off episodes with little regard for the show or building audience.
Don’t Trust the B- in Apartment 23 has grown from an okay show with silly over the top characters (including Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek as himself) to a laugh out loud show with even crazier over the top characters (Beek stands out). The series went from something I’d watch every now and than when bored to a show that I DVR and watch every week (now twice a week?). Hopefully the ratings improve and show ABC that this is a comedy worth keeping. Ditto for Happy Endings.
Official Description, “Paris…”: June begins a new job and is befriended by a colleague, but Chloe thinks the coworker is just keeping her enemies close. Meanwhile, Mark asks James for help in expressing his feelings to June.
