“ ABC President Channing Dungey defended the network’s decision in a press call with reporters on Tuesday. According to Entertainment Weekly, she said, “A large part of these jobs are managing failure and we’ve made the tough calls and canceled shows that we’d otherwise love to stay on the air. That’s the job. I canceled Last Man Standing for the same business and scheduling reasons that I canceled Dr. Ken, The Real O’Neals, The Catch and American Crime. And Last Man Standing was a challenging one for me because it was a steady performer in the ratings, but once we made the decision not to continue with comedies on Fridays, that was where we landed.”
- What better place than Friday for comedy?
- You couldn’t swap a drama from Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday? Methinks Ms. Dungey is full of….well, you know.
