Happy Town Gets A Whole Lot Sadder

by  in TV News Comment

It was bad enough that ABC pulled the midseason murder mystery Happy Town just three weeks after its premiere, returning the Twin Peaks wannabe to Wednesday nights this month to burn off the remaining episodes. Now the network has announced Happy Town will disappear again — blame the Magic Man! — with the final two episodes airing on a Saturday night in July.

I reviewed the first episode, and thought that, despite its many shortcomings, Happy Town showed some potential. I was alone in that assessment, apparently. Farewell, citizens of Haplin, Minnesota. Farewell.
