Is ‘Apartment 23’ On ABC Cancelled?
Turns out, ABC has taken off the air its Tuesday night show Apartment 23. Its common knowledge that the show wasn’t doing too well in the ratings department, but to unceremoniously yank a show although there are episodes left to air, is rather odd. Also, the network reportedly hasn’t decided when it will air the remaining episodes that are still lying in the can. Apt.23 for now will be replaced by Happy Endings, another show which is doing quite badly in the ratings department. ABC on its part is being cryptic and its rep even mentioned that Apt.23 hasn’t been cancelled.
Well, looking at how the show is being treated by the network, one would find it really difficult to believe what the ABC rep is saying. Also, the co-star of Apt.23 James Van Der Beek tweeted regarding this issue and observed how if a show is removed from the air all of a sudden and no return date for the show is mentioned or revealed, it can be safely assumed that the show has been cancelled. So, this means the network has kept the actors and possibly even the makers of the show in the dark, as to its fate.

ABC lately has been ambiguous about many of its shows for that matter. Shows like Pan-Am, Last Resort, 666 have all reportedly been cancelled, but when the network is asked about these shows, it refuses to officially concede that they are cancelled. Probably, the network wants to keep these shows in the backburner and wants to reintroduce some of them at a time when it once again sees fit, and if ABC officially declares these shows cancelled it would be difficult to bring them back. As far as the remaining episodes of Apt.23 are concerned, the network might air them in the summer, but it seems highly improbable that ABC would order a new season of the show. But, honestly with ABC it’s really difficult to say anything till the last moment.
For those unaware, Apt.23 is a comedy revolving around two girls Chloe and June. After losing her apartment, June moves in with a girl named Chloe, who is a con-artist and all-round party girl. At first, they don’t get along. But, when Chloe’s attempts to con June backfire, they end up becoming friends. Interestingly, the show was originally developed by Fox and was titled ‘Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23′. Fox passed and ABC did a pilot with the title ‘Apartment 23′.
