There was no happy ending for Happy Endings or Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 on Sunday.

Airing their first episodes in their Sunday slots, the ABC comedies both hit series lows. Happy Endings drew 2.6 million viewers and a 1.0 in the 18-to-49 demographic, while Apt 23 nabbed 2.2 million viewers and a 0.9. Lead-ins Once Upon a Time (9 million, 3.1) and Revenge (7 million, 2.3) were both down from their fall finales last month.
