If you happen to belong to the so-called cult that's been following Happy Endings for the last three television seasons, I've got some bad news for you. Actually, I've got bad news, then worse news, and then maybe, possibly, some good news. But maybe not.
First the bad: as you may already be aware, ABC decided to cancel the plucky cult sitcom last month. However, not long after that Sony TV started negations to get the show picked up by the USA network, and for a while it was looking pretty good.
Now the worse news: the show is not getting picked up by the USA network—at least, not according to some "sources" who spoke (or emailed or texted or tweeted) to E! News. Apparently the basic cable network has opted to pass on quality original programming in order to focus on WWE Monday Night Raw and re-runs of Monk.
Obviously, this is bad news for fans of Happy Endings, which stars Casey Wilson, Damon Wayans Jr., Elisha Cuthbert, Adam Pally, Eliza Coupe, and Zachary Knighton. However, there is still one last glimmer of hope. Reports now indicate that Sony is looking for a new "non-network" home for the show somewhere out there on the interwebs—like Amazon or Netflix. So we'll all have to stay tuned. In the meantime, please enjoy this montage of the best of Alex Kerkovich—i.e., Elisha Cuthbert. Hurray for ditzy blondes!
