They killed it by splitting the pilot in two then jerking it all around, on/off, etc. These TV Execs have no staying power, they flutter in the wind. Sad.

…After a disappointing premiere in the ratings, Happy Town was pulled off the airwaves for most of May sweeps. Before the show returned on June 2nd, ABC officially cancelled the TV show. Only eight episodes were filmed but at least answers to some of the TV show’s mysteries will be revealed by the end.

Unfortunately, ABC pulled the show off the air once again…

ABC midseason mystery a la Harper’s Island: ‘Happy Town’ Premieres April 28th

I am pretty psyched for this one, I really enjoyed Harper’s Island, and this has more of a horror feel to it…

…As for what the show’s actually about, we have no freakin’ clue. But it’s got a killer cast, including Sam Neill, Amy Acker and Steven Weber, as well as star Lauren German, the chick from Hostel: Part II, and Lost‘s Mr. Friendly, M.C. Gainey.

Happy Town premieres at 10 p.m. on April 28.

CBS cancels ‘As the World Turns’

Oh how sad! Another one down, (‘Guiding Light’ cancelled also)

James Hibberd has it:

Long-running CBS daytime serial “As the World Turns,” which premiered on April 2, 1956, has amassed 58 Daytime Emmys and launched the careers of such actors as Julianne Moore and Dana Delany, will conclude its more than five-decade run in September.

It has become the latest daytime soap to get the ax as daytime viewership is dwindling, forcing the networks to look for cheaper alternatives.

Top-rated from 1959-71, “As the World Turns” switched to color in 1967 and expanded to one hour in 1975. It is the longest-running daytime drama airing on TV following the cancellation of CBS’ “Guiding Light.”

“We are disappointed and saddened by the news that the show is not being renewed,” executive producer Chris Goutman said. “It will certainly be a loss for all of us, and for the show’s loyal audience.”

The show’s producer, Procter & Gable’s TeleNext Media, vowed to search for a new home for the show, but the odds of “As the World Turns” continuing are slim…

Academy Award nominated actress Julianne Moore appears in this clip from As The World Turns. Moore played the dual roles of Frannie Hughes and Sabrina Hughes on the drama, for which she won a Daytime Emmy Award in 1988; she played the roles from 1985 to 1988.

Queens born actor, Steven Weber, appeared on As The World Turns from 1985 to 1986. His best-known role was as Brian Hackett, a skirt-chasing airplane pilot on the NBC sitcom Wings.

Academy Award winning actress Marisa Tomei appears at the close of the clip. She appeared on As The World Turns from 1983 to 1987.
