Fans of the already-canceled “666 Park Avenue” are not going to like this one. ABC has decided to pull the show from its Sunday timeslot, replacing the supernatural drama with two of its comedy series, “Happy Endings” and “Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23.”

The Sunday-night schedule change will take effect in January, and the remaining episodes of
“666 Park Avenue” will have to wait until summer to air. Originally, ABC had planned to air the 13 produced episodes through January.

Struggling comedies “Happy Endings” and “Don’t Trust the B—” will now get to struggle in ABC’s tricky 10pm timeslot. Both shows have struggled to keep their ratings up on Tuesday nights this fall, and the hope seems to be that Sunday will give them a chance. The sitcoms will air back-to-back Sunday nights from 10-11pm and will air more new episodes from 9-10pm on Tuesdays.

Yes, that’s twice a week for both comedies.

The half-hour sitcoms will air in the weeks of Jan. 6, 13 and 20. A Hallmark movie will take the spot on Jan. 27, while the first three weeks of February remain open for future scheduling. Feb. 24 marks the Academy Awards telecast, and the new drama, “Red Widow” starts on the following Sunday.
