Happy Endings Renewed for Season 3 by ABC

It looks like there'll be another year of Penny (suck it, taxpayers!) for Happy Endings, as the hyperactive ensemble comedy has been renewed by ABC. The show will be back for another 22 episodes thanks to its critical praise, watercooler buzz, and solid performance behind Modern Family.

The only question now is where to air the show. Given its 22 episode order, it's more likely to be on the fall schedule and something like (currently unrenewed) Don't Trust the B in Apt. 23 seems like the most logical companion. They're both loud, weird, in-your-face comedies that, tonally, don't fit with ABC's single-cam family laughers; but is either strong enough to lead off an hour? Both Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B held up alright following Modern Family repeats, so moving them to a slightly less competitive night and pairing them up could solidify their success. »
