Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
It apparently wasn’t enough that ABC’s Happy Town got yanked off-air for a second time last Friday; now it turns out that the series won’t even get to finish on television at all.
Although the original plan was to air the show’s remaining episodes in a Saturday nighttime slot this summer – a la last year’s burning off of the similarly canceled Pushing Daisies – The Wrap is now reporting that ABC has instead decided to only release the episodes online, instead. While I understand that the show’s viewership wasn’t strong (It was pulled twice, after all), I find it hard to believe that it was so unsuccessful that it’s not even worth airing in a graveyard slot, just to appease fans who don’t/can’t watch television online. Still, maybe now I’ll find out who the Magic Man really was…
