Agreed. Though I didn't mind Stephanie March either.

Why not send those sandwiches to USA to try to convince them to pick it up? Food campaigns have worked well in the past.

Three seasons of good comedy is okay for me. I would like 5 but oh well if USA doesn't.

I've been burned too many times now by series being on too long and getting stale or stupidly long( Scrubs, Community, The Office, or Lost)

It needs to go on for as long as the cast damn well wants it to!

Question: For the love of a Happy Ending, any word on whether or not USA Network will right a terrible wrong? —Tiera
Ausiello: No news is, in this case, pretty good news. Negotiations continue between Sony and USA, which tells me that the cabler remains seriously interested in giving the show a fourth season. Meanwhile, if the talks collapse — bite your tongue, Ausiello! — it’s an inevitability that Damon Wayans Jr. will find himself back on New Girl next season in some capacity. (You’ll recall Wayans appeared in the New Girl pilot, but was forced to drop out when Happy Endings earned a surprise second season; Lamorne Morris’s Winston was brought in to fill the void.) Jake Johnson, who’s currently shooting the comedy Let’s Be Cops with Wayans in Atlanta, says he’d be thrilled to “welcome [Wayans'] Coach back to the loft,” adding, “I would be surprised if he doesn’t come back for a while” should Happy Endings fail to find a new home. “There would be such funny episodes with the Coach seeing what’s happened in the past two years since he’s [been] gone.”

Apparently USA isn't going for it, but Sony is going to talk to TBS and NBC about it.

I don't want to live in a world where this show doesn't exist. ABC, you ****ing idiots.

Don't blame ABC. They gave this show more chances than most other networks would have. Blame them A-holes who didn't watch it.

They gave it a chance, but this entire season has been filled with IDIOTIC decisions on their part. Moving it from the post-Modern Family slot it was doing well in to the same timeslot as New Girl, splitting a group of episodes between tuesday and sunday with little to no notice, and then finally dropping it on fridays. Not to mention the spotty scheduling. That sort of inconsistency won't yield good results and they were idiots to think it would.

Then of course, the fact that their new comedies look almost entirely unimpressive. Really, ABC? Rebel Wilson?

You can only get so far with the "Well they gave it a chance!" argument. NBC gave Hannibal a chance too. And thanks to some idiotic decisions they made, it premiered in ****ing April in a lousy timeslot and has been hurting, numbers-wise. Thankfully, at least NBC was kind enough to order another season.

And if those A-Holes I was talking about had watched it in abundance from the get go, then it wouldn't have been moved. They see things in terms of numbers. It barely did okay after MF, so, they tried something else, which didn't work. That's how it goes.

No, no, as with all things, the general public are idiots, and wouldn't know good TV if it crawled up their leg and laid awesome eggs in their bung hole.

I actually would really like it if NBC picked it up and put it back-to-back with Parks & Rec, but yeah I can see TBS picking it up and putting it with Cougar Town.

Either would actually make more sense to me than USA would've. I mean, I was open to it for the opportunity to get more episodes, but even if they are getting into the half hour comedy game, it would've been a weird fit.

I saw that they might try to shop it to Netflix or Amazon as well.

TBS would be a better fit for the show the way they are now. They did save Cougar Club.

I like the show and the cast, but I can only take it in small doses. Everyone is so snarky and goofy its a bit too much at times. Its almost like everyone on the show is playing Kramer.

I don't think you try to grow or maintain the ratings by putting it on a new night/time up against New Girl and Go On after those shows have already started airing. Three comedies barely worked in the 90s, there was always a loser.

For sure fans didn't follow in the live ratings but ABC didn't do the show any favours with a new date and poor scheduling.

I don't even care who picks it up, I just want it picked up. ****ing E! could pick it up and air it between Keeping Up With The Kardashians marathons and I'd still watch it.

I'm not sure about Netflix but Amazon could pick it up because their comedy pilots were mediocre to terrible. Having something like Happy Endings, even for 10-13 episodes would have people check out their other original programming.

FXX - could use more content
Comedy Central - a safer bet for them
TBS - pair it with the only single camera comedy they have, Cougar Town

It's time for a show-within-a-show: Keeping Up with the Kerkovitches! (Assuming it gets picked up by another network).

Of course, it will be a crappy public access cable show directed by an undiagnosed sexual predator who is a friend of Max, and Jane will take the show very seriously.
