ABC Cancels Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue

ABC has canceled Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue, TVGuide.com has learned.

The network will air the remaining episodes from their initial orders of 13, but will not pick up any additional hours. No word yet on when the series finales will air.

Last Resort, which stars Andre Braugher and Scott Speedman as crew members of a renegade nuclear submarine, debuted in September to 9.31 million viewers and a 2.2 demo rating ,just a tenth higher in the demo than Charlie’s Angels, which failed to deliver last season in the same timeslot. Its most recent episode tied a series low of 5.8 million with 1.3 rating.

666 Park Avenue also consistently fell in the ratings, bowing to 7 million and a 2.2, well below Pan Am‘s 11 million and 3.1 in the timeslot last fall. The series stars Dave Annable and Rachael Taylor as an innocent Midwestern couple who get hired as resident managers of a spooky New York apartment building owned by Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn), who may or may not be the devil. Sunday’s episode matched a series low of 4 million with 1.3.

On Monday, ABC picked up country-fried drama Nashville for a full season.

Are you sad that Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue will end?

    Way to go ABC. Cancel two fantastic thrilling shows and keep the soap opera Nashville. If that formula is really successful then maybe you should have kept All My Children and One Life to Live as nighttime soaps. If you want the ratings of NCIS then keep the shows that appeal to people over 49 instead of teens & 20somethings that don’t watch network tv anyway.
