The President of ABC Explains His Decision to Cancel ‘Happy Endings’


“I do think Happy Endings is absolutely on brand. What we found was it was just too narrow. It was a very hard decision because, as you know, I love that show and I found it very hard to make that decision. On the same token, I think Super Fun Night and Mixology are broader shows that will bring in a wider audience. So, hard decision, not happy at all to see it go, but we feel it was on brand and so is [Super Fun Night] and Mixology.

- ABC President Paul Lee when asked by a journalist today why he canceled Happy Endings and picked up Super Fun Night and Mixology, two other single-camera sitcoms about groups of friends.
