ABC is throwing in the towel on its Tuesday comedy block earlier than planned.

Instead of airing back-to-back “Happy Endings” episodes on that night until “Dancing With the Stars” returns March 19 (as originally announced), the network has decided to move the struggling comedy series.

“Happy Endings” will now do its back-to-back thing on Friday nights starting March 29, where the Tim Allen comedy “Last Man Standing” and Reba McIntire’s “Malibu Country” have been running. Both will have finished their season by then.

No, none of this is good news for “Happy Endings” fans.

Meanwhile, ABC’s turning Tuesdays at 8 over to reality series.

The cooking competition series “The Taste” is taking over the “Happy Endings” time slot Feb. 26, the same night that “Celebrity Wife Swap” returns to the night at 8.
