The future is looking bleak for one of TV’s best sitcoms. ABC announced Wednesday that it is moving Happy Endings from Tuesdays to Fridays for the remainder of the season.

According to TV Line, the series will remain on hiatus until the end of March, when it will air on Friday nights starting March 29. This follows a strange gambit earlier this season in which the network aired Happy Endings– along with its since-canceled companion, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23– on Sundays in addition to Tuesdays.

The show will be on Tuesday nights by (ugh) Celebrity Wife Swap.

 Happy Endings didn’t look so promising when it debuted in 2011, featuring a strange cast of Damon Wayons’ son, Jack Bauer’s daughter, recent Saturday Night Live castoff Casey Wilson, and sitcom journeymen Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally and Eliza Coupe. But the show quickly emerged as a unique and consistently hilarious comedy, bringing the Friends formula into the present day with frequent great character bits.

Elisha Cuthbert, who played one of the worst TV characters in history on 24, emerged as an unlikely comedienne, with Coupe, playing her sister, deliciously playing a deranged control freak. And Pally’s Max may be the series’ greatest creation, playing the gay guy who’s also a huge slob.

Happy Endings‘ support isn’t wide, but it’s deep, and let’s hope it somehow survives another season.
