Women-Created, Sitcom Voices Silenced: Apartment 23 and Ben and Kate Pulled From Line Up

This was a sad week in television for me. Two of my favorite sitcoms, Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 and Ben and Kate were pulled from ABC and Fox’s schedules effective immediately. As of now there are no plans to air any remaining episodes and while both networks have yet to confirm cancellation, Twitter buzz from both creators and stars of both shows indicates the inevitable.
