Hulu to Stream Final 7 Episodes of ABC’s ‘Manhattan Love Story’

Sitcom's last eps also will be available on ABC.com and Watch ABC apps

Internet-video services are becoming bigger hosts for canceled TV shows, giving them an extended digital afterlife.

Hulu announced that it will stream the seven remaining episodes of ABC sitcom “Manhattan Love Story,” which the Alphabet net canceled last month after airing four episodes. The final eps will be available weekly on Thursdays to Hulu Plus subscribers, and free a week later.

In addition, the last eps of “Manhattan Love Story” will be available on ABC.com and the Watch ABC apps for smartphones, tablets and connected TVs. The romcom from ABC Studios stars Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman (pictured, above). Hulu is a joint venture of Disney (which owns ABC), 21st Century Fox and NBCUniversal.

Hulu also recently picked up the last seven eps of short-lived ABC sitcom “Selfie.” Episodes of that show are available for streaming on ABC.com and Watch ABC, with new episodes posted on Wednesdays through the end of December.

Both “Manhattan Love Story” and “Selfie” will remain available on the streaming services until April 2015.

There’s a trend here. Netflix this month ordered a fourth season of Western-flavored drama “Longmire” (canceled by A&E). That came after Netflix earlier this year released the fourth and final season of “The Killing” (previously on AMC). Meanwhile, Yahoo rescued “Community” after NBC canceled the sitcom, with the Internet service ordered a sixth season of the show.

Last year, Hulu streamed unaired episodes of “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” after it was canceled by ABC.
