So it’s been a tough week for Tuesday sitcoms I like.
First up, James Van Der Beek made this announcement regarding ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in APT23:
Sad to say ABC has pulled #Apt23 and will not be airing the 8 remaining episodes any time soon. Translation: we’ve basically been cancelled.

In the case of ABC, there has been a great deal of buzz that the show would be considered far more successful if On Demand and streaming (aka metrics other than traditional TV ratings) were considered.
Here’s hoping this is the last season that shows are cancelled without all forms of ratings are properly considered.
And I also hope Van Der Beek is interested in doing more sitcom work in the future.
