Happy Endings
"Happy Endings" was canceled by ABC due to low ratings, but it might get picked up by the USA Network. ABC

Critics might have loved “Happy Endings,” but, due to poor viewer ratings, ABC axed the 30-minute comedy along with four other shows.

“Happy Endings” starred Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr. and Casey Wilson. It ran on different days in different time slots each of its three seasons, most recently being moved from Tuesdays to Sundays, Us Magazine reported Saturday.

Knighton sounded an optimistic note on Twitter Friday:

 

 

And, indeed, the program could be picked up by another television network. When ABC canceled “Cougar Town” last year, TBS scooped it up. It’s been reported that the USA Network is interested in taking on “Happy Endings,” so there’s still hope for the series.

The network also canceled Dana Delaney’s “Body of Proof,” Sarah Chalke’s “How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life),” Reba McEntire’s “Malibu Country” and Radha Mitchell’s “Red Widow.” These cancellations come after ABC already got rid of “666 Park Avenue,” “Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23,” “Last Resort,” “Private Practice” and “Zero Hour.”

Meanwhile, “Family Tools” and “The Neighbors” are still in limbo.

However, the network has renewed “Castle,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Last Man Standing,” “Modern Family,” “Nashville,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Revenge,” “Scandal,” “Suburgatory” and “The Middle.”

A number of news shows also have been picked up by ABC for the 2013-2014 season, according to the Huffington Post. The comedies are “Back in the Game” with James Caan, “Mixology,” “Super Fun Night” with Rebel Wilson, “The Goldbergs” and “Trophy Wife” with Malin Akerman. And the dramas are “Betrayal,” “Killer Women,” “Lucky 7” “Mind Games,” “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” and “The Returned.”
