‘Don't Trust the B— in Apt. 23' Pulled From ABC's Schedule

A bonus episode of "Happy Endings" will air in the place of "Apt. 23" next week

The b—- in Apartment 23 has been evicted.

ABC has pulled the comedy "Don't Trust the B— in Apt. 23" from its Tuesday night schedule, an individual with knowledge of the move told TheWrap on Tuesday.

It is not yet known when the remaining eight episodes of the comedy will run. The two-hour series premiere of "The Taste" will air in its 9:30 p.m. timeslot this Tuesday.

As previously scheduled, the "Dancing With the Stars" will fill the Tuesday 9-10 p.m. slot — which up till now had been occupied by "Happy Endings" and "Apt. 23" — starting March 26.

Last week, the network pulled both "Happy Endings" and "Apt. 23" — which stars Krysten Ritter (pictured) and James Van Der Beek — from the Sundays at 10 p.m. time slot, where it had been filling in for the yanked freshman drama "666 Park Avenue." The comedies were intended to fill the slot throughout the month, but were pulled after both shows fizzled in the ratings, with "Don't Trust the B—" hitting a series low in the ratings with its Jan. 13 episode, posting a 0.8 rating/2 share in the 18-49 demographic most preferred by advertisers.

For its Tuesday airing last week, "Apt. 23" drew a 1.1/3 in the demo.

    Not a good turn of events for Damon Wayans Jr., who initially booked 2 pilots, Happy Endings AND New Girl. But due to contractual agreements, he had to stay with Happy Endings, while New Girl continues to flourish and receive Emmy nominations. That's why the other African-American guy got cast. Lucky for HIM, not so much for Damon Wayans Jr. :( Frankly I preferred DWJr over the other guy; maybe they'll bring him back, since it wasn't a “re-cast” but a “change of character”.

    I don't understand – I thought broadcasting a show 1-3 months per year and airing episodes out of order with almost no publicity always led to stellar ratings! [/END SARC]

    I honestly didn't even know the show was on this season. I enjoyed it last season but haven't heard anything about it. I looked on Hulu to see when it was starting and there were like six or seven episodes already! Great job to the network, it was a funny show.

    Trust the B… is, of course, great, so no wonder it's being pulled.
