Happy Endings Axed By ABC — Next Stop USA?

ABC’s Happy Endings had a little something to smile about this Friday night, as the final two episodes of Season 3 — with 2.7 million total viewers and 0.8 rating and 2.1 mil/0.7 — rose more than 20 percent in both measures versus last week. But again, next-to-worst case scenario, USA Network (maybe, possibly) rides to the rescue.

Continuing ABC’s night, Shark Tank (5.5 mil/1.7) fell 15 percent yet netted Friday’s best demo rating.

Over on CBS, the already renewed Undercover Boss (7.2 mil/1.2) dropped 21 and 29 percent, the penultimate Vegas (7.3 mil/0.9) ticked down a tenth, and Blue Bloods (9.9 mil/1.3) was flat, copping the night’s biggest audience.

NBC’s Fashion Star (3 mil/0.7) added a few eyeballs to hit a season high in total audience… Fox’s penultimate Touch (2.22 mil/0.6) was flat… and The CW’s Nikita (1.2 mil/0.3) surged 27 percent in total viewers but showed no movement in the demo.
