It's bad omens all around for the ABC, Rebel Wilson-led sitcom Super Fun Night. The single-camera comedy is loosely based on her own experiences, and follows her and her two friends as they venture out into the nightlife scene after a decade of spending Friday nights at home. Despite the muscle behind it—Conan O'Brien and roastmaster general Jeff Ross are executive producers; it has the prime post Modern Family timeslot—the pilot has received exceedingly negative feedback from both critics and test screenings.
Plenty of television's great comedies have gotten off to rough starts, but now ABC isn't even betting on the pilot anymore, instead swapping it out for the second episode, which is what will premiere on October 2 instead. Is this just a necessary move to ensure the show's survival, or will the Super Fun Night be over by Thanksgiving?
