Better With You vs. Happy Endings – The battle for the 13 episode 2nd Season

American Broadcasting Company

While most had suspected that ABC would renew freshman Happy Endings over Better With You, something funny happened last night – Better With You scored a 1.9 in the prelims, with little to no promotion while being up against Idol. On the other hand, Happy Endings scored a 1.7 with a better lead-in against only SVU and Suspect Behavior (I’ll forgive its second half-hour: comedy is not meant for 10:30).

What does this mean? Obviously the brass at ABC likes Happy Endings more – I do too. But Better With You isn’t a bad show, and it’s doing admirably against some ridiculous odds. A multi-cam was never going to work in a single-cam night, so if Better With You gets renewed, expect it to move.

ABC is expected to start making renewal deals later today. I’m sure most of the time will be spent pouring over these numbers.

  1. dont think last nights numbers sway BWU over HE. Happy Endings is getting renewed. It has tons of buzz especially 18-34. ABC knows it. It launched in a non traditional slot in the lowest rated weeks of the year. It has much potential for growth

    BWU might have eeked out a renewal after last nights numbers but as you noted it will probably be used with a new multi cam on Friday
