ABC has officially decided not to pick up 666 PARK AVENUE and LAST RESORT for full seasons, Variety reports. The network will air the remaining episodes of the freshmen series.
Both shows debuted below the networks projections, and have continued to slide since their premieres in September. LAST RESORT typically draws around 5 million viewers during its airtime. LAST RESORT airs in the 8 PM Thursday timeslot - and as the numbers show, has been overshadowed by THE BIG BANG THEORY and THE X FACTOR.
The supernatural drama 666 PARK AVENUE - starring LOST's Terry O'Quinn and UGLY BETTy's Vanessa Williams - airs at 10 PM on Sundays. Its timeslot puts it up against NBC's SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL - which, on average, takes the night ratings-wise. PARK AVENUE's numbers hardly ever break the 3 million mark with viewers - and is only slighly better in the live-plus-7 data, with 6.3 million viewers.
ABC will the shows' 13 episodes that were produced before the cancellation over the next few weeks.
