Eliza Coupe: Nobody promoted us, we never had any publicity. Even the posters and billboards around town were stock photos of not even us—just some random wedding cake. It was like, cool, they don’t give a fuck about us. They put us out to pasture. We were the little engine that could, because people fucking loved it and we still rose above. It sucks that we got canceled. I think the show still could be on the air today and be a mega-hit if ABC got behind it. But they didn’t, and that’s their fault. It’s really shitty.
Damon Wayans, Jr.: I feel like Happy Endings was three years ahead of its time, which is a weird, specific number. But if ABC would have just held on, they would have seen some fruits of their labor. Of our labor, really. But I don’t know. I think it’s a funny show. It’s original. I don’t really know any shows like it on TV. It’s so specific, and I think more people are seeing it now—so many more people are talking about it. I appreciate the love. The fact that we’re even having this interview right now is really cool.
